- Art of Rally is a love letter to the golden era of rally driving.
- The game was created in a van during a road trip across North America.
- Art of Rally is available now on the Xbox Store for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows 10 PC, and with Xbox Game Pass.
After a few years plugging away, I’m pretty stoked to be able to tell you that our second game, Art of Rally, is launching on Xbox and available today – day one with Xbox Game Pass! For any of you who like racing games, it’s a spiritual successor to my last game, Absolute Drift, which was released on Windows & Xbox a few years back.
Art of Rally is a love letter to the golden era of rally driving that takes players across the world to drive through beautiful and soothing environments inspired by real locations from Finland, Sardinia, Norway, Japan, Germany and now Kenya too! What most players will never know is that I actually developed a large amount of the game while driving across North America in my camper van, before getting together a team at the end to launch it.
Some of you might recognize a modern cargo van, but I call it The Beluga and I converted it into an office-on-wheels for the bulk of the development! We went into the wild, stared at the big skies, travelled through tranquil forests and out across vast deserts. The craziest trip was a 6000km drive from Canada to Oaxaca, Mexico that timed with Hurricane Willa that ripped through Sinaloa.
My van has played such an important part in the making of my game, that it had to be in it. If you ever play Art of Rally, and happen to head somewhere down a road less travelled, you might just find it (sporting the camouflage livery from my previous game Absolute Drift)!
Making the game this way has been an amazing experience, if a little technologically challenging at times. I can’t wait to see what folks think of it when they try it on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows 10, and with Xbox Game Pass!
