Interview with the first preorderer
In our ongoing series of blog post repostings, here's an interview with a very special person: Aiden, who was the first to preorder Next Car Game when the preorders went live back at the end of August. In the interview, Aiden turns out to be an old Destruction Derby fan!
What is your name or handle?
My name is Aiden Foxx.
Why were you the first fan to pre-order Next Car Game?
A follow up to Flatout you say? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Do you have history with Bugbear games? Which one is your favorite and why?
I got into the Flatout series kinda late, starting with Flatout: Ultimate Carnage not long after its release. After that I was pretty much hooked and clocked hundreds of hours playing the career, Carnage and online modes. Ever since then I’ve been waiting for the true sequel to UC, so I was pumped when I heard about Next Car Game!
Since Ultimate Carnage I have played and loved Unbounded, and am currently on the beta for Driftopia.
What about the “Destruction Derby” games, have you played those?
When I was a kid, me and my brother would play them on the good ol’ PS1. Ah, happy days!
What do you think of real world demolition derby? Have you ever been to an event?
It’s something I’ve never really seen in England, but during trips to America I have seen events advertised. I remember when I was very young my father took me to a destruction event with stunts and monster trucks, and it must have stuck with me because I still remember it today. The love of carnage and destruction is something which lives in the 10 year old inside all of us.
What is the feature you’re most excited about in Next Car Game?
Well, I don’t know… Maybe you could give us a few more hints about what you’ve got in store? Stunt mode perhaps? ;)
What’s your favorite part in the videos and screenshots we’ve released so far?
I love the look of the car customization. It’s always great to be able to add a personal touch to your vehicles.
What’s your platform of choice?
Keyboard, controller or wheel?
PS3 controller for racing.
Thank you, Aiden! Can’t wait to get your comments on the game once you get your hands on it.
