Sometimes, when you visiting some indie game dev forums, you watch a trailer, and say YESSSSS!!!
(paraphrasing from their site) Barnyard Racers is a cartoon style racer with a barnyard animal theme. It’s being created in XNA for the 2009 DreamBuildPlay Contest and (the creator) plans to sell it as a Community Game through Xbox Live.
The August trailer (above) shows massive improvement on the April 2009 trailer. In just four months, Barnyard Racing’s improved no end. The new character/vehicle models & menus give it a really fun look.
I love the cow driving the old jalopy. And the chicken driving a ride-on lawnmower. The addition of Wile-E-coyote style “rockets on extending arms” is just icing on the cake!
I wouldn’t buy an Xbox for Halo… but this game… maybe…
You can download an early test version (for PC or XBox community members) from the official site.
