Ferrari Golf 3D - Screens, opinions? * * * * *

Hello guys,

I'm an indie developer who has developed THIS game, completely from scratch, graphics and art :

http://www.therendercafe.com/Ferrari/

I would like to gauge interest in the project since I'm interested in turning this into a "I'm a millionaire who lives in California" simulator complete with talking NPC's and the possibility to become a MMORPG...

The release came out at a paltry 13MB... Should I post it here so u guys can test it ?

Thanks,

-Charles

Looks like an interesting game. What's the golf aspect of it though?

Yea I'm interested, is it a Driving game or a golf game? The graphics look good.
Is this done by Ferrarri? I see you did it, but did you have to get permission to use the name?

Didn't you read the description? It's about Californian Millionaires.

WOW, lol, i didnt expect so many replies in such short time! (30 minutes??)

Anyways, its a RACING game played just like the first Need for Speed games, very similar, with full physics.

The golf aspect is only related to the surroundings, actually, there is no golf at all right now lol, i named it so because i wanted graphics that look like a mini-golf..

I initially started developing this game because i wanted to recreate La Jolla, California since its such a beautiful place... And driving around there at night is so magical that i wanted to recreate that feeling in a video game.

The idea is to make it FUN and arcade-like, while having role-playing possibilities too... Like getting out of the car and talking with people walking around, or entering your pad, switching cars (remember your a MILLIONAIRE lol) and living a fantasy life, etc. While maybe having missions like "drive to the dock to retrieve the suitcase with the Porsche Turbo"

Therefore, this game was born. Of course its a work in progress and its open to creative direction.

If any of you would like to contribute ideas to this game, we can make it happen!

Ill upload the playable build later, i have to take my girl out for lunch.
Best,

-Charles
