Mac game publisher
on Wednesday announced that its Mac conversion of Total Immersion Racing has reached its beta development milestone.
Total Immersion Racing puts players behind the wheel of GT-style racing vehicles made by real-world racing teams — Lister Storm, BMW, Audi, McLaren and Bentley are represented, for example (there are 18 licensed cars in all).
You take to one of 12 different real-world tracks, including spots like Monza, Sebring, Hokenheim and more. You can participate in a career-based game that lets you ascend the ladder of professional racing. If you’re successful, Total Immersion Racing rewards you with the ability to drive prototype cars.
The game’s graphics engine supports advanced effects like fogging, particle effects, sun flare and other details. The game touts computer-controlled players that adapt to your driving style, with unique personalities and memories that bear grudges if you get into a shoving match out on the race track. Split-screen multiplayer gaming is also supported.
