Quantum Rush, the new online racer of Berlin based online
game developers GameArt Studio, not only has elaborate graphics
(you can watch all game videos in the Quantum Rush blog) but the
gameplay and story are also well thought out and complex.
Racer manufacture is a serious business and of all the companies
that tried to get a foothold in the QR league, only three have thus
far been successful. The three companies - Ion Energy Systems,
Nitroid Racing and Nanofabric Motorworks – are now the
producing all of the QR leagues racers.
Each manufacturer has their own story and philosophy which
results in racers with specific varying strengths and weaknesses.

Ion Energy Systems - IES
The manufacturer consortium started out as a global energy
provider but bought their way into the racing league as an
expansion of marketing. Their other research and sales activities
includes energy couplings and top secret military contracting.
IES racers are the most advanced in regards to energy techs.
There is no other manufacturer who can compete with the energy
production and shield systems on their racers. However, the armour
plating on is relcatively weak.
A special energy feedback system produces an electromagnetic
shock pulse, whenever the energy pool is depleted, that disrupts
the enemies weapon systems and does significant energy damage.
Nitroid Racing has specialized in “speed-boosting
measures”. Their large engines and thrusters, together with a
focus on acceleration, are the main assets of this
Their racers are, as standard, fitted with the best and most
efficient boosters. Their rate acceleration is unmatched. This
comes at the price of weaker shields and armour.
In contrast to other manufacturers these racers do not have an
automatic shutdown for overheat protection. This allows for higher
temperature thresholds and extended use of weapons or boosters.
This comes with risks however, as overheating can cause the racer
to violently explode, causing a maelstrom of destruction to
everything caught in the blast.
Nanofabric Motorworks - NMW
Nanofabric Motorworks are hardened veterans in the racing
business. They started in countless races and their origins date
back to the age of combustion engines.
Their racers are well balanced a focus on maneuverability and
defense. NMW racers are the easiest to control and offer the best
handling that credits can buy.
The high agility and small radar signature make it difficult
targeting systems of enemy racers to get a lock-on. NMW have also
developed technology that can use defensive pick-ups more
efficiently when compared to the other racers.
