To quote: In 2010, we started the development of Fuel Overdose with the ambition of offering a new kind of solo and multiplayer action racing experience, by bringing more variety to the combat gameplay as well as a tactical approach to the genre.

To cut a long story short, we used to work for big publishers and we decided to venture into indie game development in 2010 because we thought we could bring something new to the table; what we are bringing you is Fuel Overdose.
Our ambition with this game is to bring back retro, top-down combat racing, but with a twist; that's why we like to think of our project as a "Tactical Action-Racing" game.
We are not inventing the combat racing genre - we played most of them on consoles and PC over the past 15-20 years, and it appeared very quickly during our first meetings that there was no point trying to develop a remake of these games.
But we also realized that there were some essential...
