UK-based Mac game publisher
has released a demo of its conversion of Total Immersion Racing, a new auto racing game.
Feral Interactive recently announced that the game had gone “gold master,” the last step before a game goes to manufacturing. Feral said the game will be released on December 12, 2003. The 133MB demo, available for download from
Macgamefiles.com, lets players get an idea of what the full version is like.
Total Immersion Racing puts players behind the steering wheels of a number of different real-world, licensed GT, GTS and LMP-class cars from various manufacturers including Audi, BMW and Bentley, as they race on real-world tracks like Hockenheim, Monza, Sebring and others.
Career-based gameplay lets you work your way up the ranks of professional racing as you are pitted against computer-controlled drivers who exhibit unique personalities — and memories, too — they’ll hold a grudge against you if you block them or run them off the track, so be careful. Total Immersion Racing even features a 2-player mode using split-screen on the same computer with two game controllers or from the same keyboard.
If the 133MB demo is too much for you to handle, you can also watch a

Total Immersion Racing requires a G3/500MHz or faster; Mac OS X v10.1.3 or Mac OS 9.1 or higher; 196MB RAM; OpenGL-based graphics with 16MB VRAM or more and a 1024×768 display. Feral is currently accepting pre-orders for US$50 or £35; that price includes free worldwide delivery.
