OutRun Europa Version 1

I was a bit bored tonight and started a mock up of original OutRun Europa that was previewed in the magazines back in 1988. Any interest in the original version here?

Looks good! I think the Union Jack colours could be toned down a bit as they stand out too much.

Is this for a new project? I've seen some great Outrun remakes/improvements in the past (the famous colour version) but did any get fully completed? I never knew there were so different many versions of this game.

Well I’ve only based the graphics on the preview screen shots (which were slightly different in each magazine).

As for it being a new project, I’m no programmer unfortunately so it’s only here to see if anyone wants to pick the project up.

It definitely has potential, those monochrome graphics have a nice clean look to them. Good luck on finding a programmer. I don't think I would be very suitable for the job myself; racing games appear to be one of the hardest genres to write.
