Campaign Story

 Project Torque coming back online?

Yes, you heard correct. Project Torque is coming back.

For many years fans have been asking for the game to be revived and this year we worked with the developers of the game to make it happen with a publishing deal.

Our team is made up of fans of the original game which includes a couple of developers who will work together to improve the game and get it playable on modern systems.

We will be bringing back the Fiona build which was one of the most stable and played builds made. We hope to also import some of the changes made in the later builds into this one such as the graphics improvements and all the cars, car parts, paints, and race tracks.

The game will be made available first on Steam and we hope to soon after also publish on Discord too. No, we will not be an Epic Exclusive.

The deal with the original developers of the game includes access to the source code. This is a big as it allows us to not only fix issues with the game and to integrate with Steam and Discord, but to also improve the game with new features and game content such as new cars, car parts, car paints, race tracks and possibly game modes.

So what is this crowdfund for?

There is a bit of work to do by the original developers to get the game ready for going live. This mainly consists of getting a working build put together and legal contracts between us and them.

The total for this work is $10,000.

This is a very good price to pay as there is quite a bit of work to do and we are getting source code access as well as the publishing rights to the game.

Funds raised on top of this go to cover stretch goals which include server hosting fees and a fund to go towards the developers who will be improving the game over the next few months to years.

This is an all or nothing fundraiser so if we do not reach this goal, no game 🙁

In return for your contributions towards the crowdfunding campaign, not only will you get the game but you will get the following;

  • – Early Access to Beta testing
  • – Forklift
  • – Special Backer only car colours and decals
  • – Credited as a backer
  • – XP and RP Booster pack (quantity listed in rewards)
  • – GP “Gamer Points” In-Game Currency (quantity listed in rewards)
  • – Special user role in Discord
  • – Coloured in-game name (if possible)
  • – Exclusive Car pack for donations $20 and over (which cars yet to be decided)
  • – Donations $50 and over will also get a surprise. What is it? A SUPRISE!

Do note that we will not have any licensed cars from day 1. The licensed cars from the game will be replaced by replicas with the same stats and look like the real ones though.

The Impact

Every contribution no matter how small will go directly towards helping to get this awesome game back online for everyone to play. We understand not everyone can afford to donate, and if this is the case we need you to spread the word.

Find people who use the play the game and show them this project. Also, find people who love racing games. Many who have not played Project Torque want to give it ago too.

 

In-Game Currency

We pledge that at least 80% of the cars in the game will be earnable by playing the game and earning RP. We also pledge that paid content using the in-game currency Gamer Points (GP for short) will not be overpriced like before.

No more paying £20-£30 for a top-end car. We will at the absolute max charge £10 for a car. With the majority being £3 to £5.

We will also not implement surprise mechanics gambling features such loot boxes into the game.

We understand that in some regions, income is a lot lower and after currency exchange even £5 is a lot of money. We will work on making the in-game currency more accessible to these areas.

Risks & Challenges

We want to be as transparent as possible to you all throughout this process.

This crowdfund is the raise money for publishing rights to a game that has already been made. This game will be released for free and there will be in-game purchases with real money. Though 80% or more of the content will be earnable from playing the game.

Money raised from the sale of IGC will be put back into the game development and the hosting fees.

If the deal between us and the original developers fails after the crowdfund, all money will be returned to backers excluding any fees.
