Old Macdonald had a… race.

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.

    It looked like the chicken was on a F1 racing car to me. Not that it really matters 😀
