Finnish studio Bugbear Inc has today revealed that their destruction derby title 'Next Car Game' has surpassed $1 million during its first week of being available through Steam Early Access.
Previously known for their work on the FlatOut series, Bugbear's smash 'em' up derby racer went live on January 16th, offering up an early taste as to what you can expect from a car game utilising a very impressive physics engine.
“This is an amazing success for a racing game, especially considering our tough road to the success,” a Bugbear statement said per MCV. “Along the way we pitched the game to numerous publishers in the hopes that the game would eventually get released. Unfortunately we receive the same response all over again – there were no market for a game like ours.
“Thanks to our awesome fans, we finally have a chance to make the game we always intended and shape it into a definite demolition racing experience the players have been yearning for years.”
Next Car Game is currently available as an Early Access title on Steam for PC, so be warned that while it has a good handful of content, it isn't yet done and you will experience the usual Early Access list of bugs and crashes. Bugbear's racer is also planned to make its way onto consoles, though no date has yet been given.
