You might remember our post about ClubSilo, the racing game using the game engine and modeling tools in Blender. Now, rather than looking at nice screenshots, you can experience the game for yourself.
Once you have downloaded the file, double click "ClubSilo_Demo_Setup.exe" and follow the on screen instructions. Once the application is installed you will find CLubSilo in your START menu. You will have the option of launching the following variants:
- ClubSilo Demo (640x480)
- ClubSilo Demo (800x600)
- ClubSilo Demo (1024x768)
- ClubSilo Demo (window)
The numbers in brackets are the resolution the game will be launched at, smaller resolution for slower machines. The last option (window) is a dragable window which can be made to whatever size you wish, with the optimum quality graphics. (Simply maximizing the window will give a poorer result than dragging it to the edges of your screen). The Quick Start Guide is also available from this dropdown menu. It contains all the info you will need for controls, driving tips and so forth. An OsX and Linux version will be available soon for download from the link above. The above site will host updated versions, as well as support.
PS > There is a BONUS if you complete Green Meadow Speedway (track 01) in under 2 minutes and 50 seconds, and you will then be given access to downloading the next track. As you complete tracks within a set time, more tracks will be unlocked. New cars will also be made available as you progress.
ClubSilo is an ARCADE RACER, not a SIM.
You can see the official press release here. So download the demo and take a drive thanks to the Blender game engine!
