New Kart Racer game with Original App Store Characters?

Konami's Krazy Kart racers are from different games... And I'd like to see a new Kart racer game with Original App Store characters. I'd love to see that, and maybe other people would? Kart racer characters could be a Pocket God Character with a wooden kart and coconut wheels, or the Doodle Jump character with a doodle kart. A Fieldrunners character with a heavy duty kart. Minigore character with... a Minigore kart... Envirobear 2010 as EnviroBear in a pixelated kart. Zombieville's Zombie with a yellowy, bloody kart. The list goes on!

To decide which certain amount of Developer Characters could be in the game, there could be a website where it recruits developers with original and good characters that would participate in this game. Then people can vote for their top whatever and the top whatever will be in the game. What would help people decide would be concept Karts of the characters.

I think I'm just tired and dreaming but I think this would be cool. And the devs could share the money if they want... 30% for Apple, (For example) 7 different devs 5% each dev, and the rest of the 35% would go to the person who makes the game. Or maybe the game can get the developers character for free and have the characters advertise their game when you choose your racer. Like if you slide to choose a kart, above the kart would be logo for the game and if you click it it'll ask if you want to leave the app. Then it'll take you to the App Store

This game could be iKart or iKart Racing. Yeah the "i" is lame but what else would you call a kart racer with Original App Store Characters.

Wouldn't it be fun racing with app store characters and shooting missiles at a Pymgy for all you pocket god haters.

By original App store Characters I mean only Characters that FIRST appeared in the App Store. So no Worms, no Hero of sparta, No Cooking mama.

Anyways, I hope this gets enough attention that this game will actually be made. =]
But there is low chance. D:

At first I actually though that KrazyKarts is a clone of KartRacer.
I seriously love that game. I'm not sure why they took it off for the USA, but I would honestly pay $20 for it.

It's a nice idea, I just highly doubt that it would ever happen.

That's one of the better ideas I've heard in a while. I think the biggest problem to get this off the ground would be profit sharing. Nobody wants to make a game and only get 35% for it, especially in a market that promises nothing for polish and hard work.

It helps if you own all the games the characters are in (Shrek Kart, Mario Kart, etc.), since one company gets all the profit.

If it had a Compton Kitty rollin' in a 67 Eldorado, I'd buy it in a second.

yes lol this would be awesome!
all of those characters are from small and community driven devs, so im sure they would go along with it. all they would have to do is give the creator of this game the rights, and the model of their character and watch the money roll in without having to do anything

I think more like 1-2% of the profit would be more reasonable. The fieldrunner would have to have that red car thing they drive in the game. This idea would be even better if somebody made like a super smash bros with those characters

In the first post I said I wasn't sure how the money would be spilt and I said they could share the % if they wanted to. Cause Pocket god has Doodle Jump and Harbor Master in their game for free. So maybe the game can get the developers character for free and have the characters advertise their game when you choose your racer.

Like if you slide to choose a kart, above the kart would be logo for the game and if you click it it'll ask if you want to leave the app. Then it'll take you to the App Store.
