The game, developed by Pixel Wrappers, sees players tackle seven different environments and features an innovative Track Generator, potentially offering a limitless number of custom stages to tackle.
Spearheaded by former amateur motorcycle racer Sylvain Debaudringhien, the game is an ode to two-dimensional racing games of old, but with parallax scrolling replaced by silky-smooth graphics and mammoth draw distances.
“Classic Sport Driving started as a love letter to the Amiga. I loved many racing games on this machine and wanted to have a go at developing games,” said Debaudringhien.
“There is something beautiful in that retro, hand-drawn aestehtic and I wanted to see how it would translate to modern hardware, I feel lucky that I could build a team around the idea and that we could make it true,” he enthused.
Classic Sport Driving will release with Arcade and Pro difficulty levels, with players encouraged to aim for the fastest stage times by competing on its online leaderboards. Players can also take part in customary Campaign mode and Daily Challenges modes.
Classic Sport Driving will release on PC via Steam on the 12th of June at 5pm BST / 12 PM EST / 9AM PST priced at $14.99. As a special introductory offer, for the first week of release the game will retail at $13.49.
