If ever there’s a video game crying out for a remake, this is it. Wipeout anti-gravity racing launched in the mid-’90s on Playstation, PC and Sega Saturn, and it was epic. Set in 2052, players competed in the F3600 anti-gravity league, piloting racers around a variety of ludicrous tracks to a soundtrack by legendary artists Leftfield, Chemical Brothers, Orbital and others.
Taking us right back to 1996 is Volker Brodkorb, with two gorgeous anti-gravity racers inspired by the game. Each is built brilliantly and includes a mini-figure pilot and some wonderful custom decal work to boot. You can join the race at Volker’s Flickr album via the link above, and to be reminded how awesome Wipeout was watch a race in 1080p here!
Wipeout Omega Collection came out last year on PlayStation 4. It has had an update to support VR and it is bonkers. It’s easily the best way to induce vomiting in unsuspecting players 😀
We looked it up on YouTube and made the mistake of letting the Elves watch it too. Much clean-up was needed…
