Formula Wincars starts its funding campaign on Kickstarter having as a goal to raise the $42,000 needed to fund their Project. This project has been done with great care, offering a wide catalogue of rewards to potential backers, among these, getting a classic Formula Wincars themed arcade machine including the game, wheel and pedals, inspired by those of classics such as Out Run or Daytona USA from the 80’s and 90’s.

And this is not by chance, considering that these games are part of the influence that the developers at DragonJam Studios have had in sight when working on this racing game, taking the pick up & race genre as a starting point and adding the possibilities of online competition offered by today’s MMO titles.

Formula Wincars, still in a development stage, has listened to all those players demanding a game like this, receiving enthusiast feedback and international support from the very beginning to this day, when the studio launches this funding campaign, running from May 8 h until June 5 th.

It is going to be a very intense month, trying to provoke the biggest impact to reach the biggest possible audience through the media, social networks or just mouth to mouth. The studio has full confidence in its project, in which they have been working for 8 months up to now, and is able to back it up with all its strength and enthusiasm.

Regarding the development process, the studio combines experienced professionals (please note Developer tab) with promising young talents from the Spanish videogame world, including some awarded by top companies like Nintendo,
