Next Car Game is a new, AAA quality demolition derby themed racing game with soft-body damage modeling, sophisticated driving dynamics and in-depth vehicle upgrading, featuring both demolition derbies and more traditional track races. 

It’s all about fun, breakneck racing and over-the-top crashes. We don’t shy away from contact, and our in-house engine is all about what happens when cars collide with each other and the world around them at reckless speeds. Expect epic crashes and tight, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line on run-down racing tracks. Expect proper demolition derbies. Expect brand new ways for metal to bend and the signature once-in-the-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with true-to-life physics simulation.

It’s a motorsport, but not just any motorsport. It’s a motorsport with attitude.
