Art of rally now offers great low-poly races on PC
I had my eye on rally art since its initial announcement. From the start, it feels like a whole different take on the rally racing genre, aiming for a much more simplistic visual style. The art of rallying launches today on PC via Steam, featuring both a single player campaign and online leaderboard challenges.
The art of rallying contains your usual list of meeting places, but they look a little different than usual. Finland, Sardinia (Italy), Norway, Japan and Germany are all here, just beautiful. This is due to the low poly visual style of the game, which makes the game look like a painting in motion. It’s also backed by a solid physics engine, so it’s not just for show.
Launch of the developer Funselektor Absolute drift in 2015, a downhill runner who asks players to master the art of drifting. Absolute drift had the impression that the cars are absolutely skidding, and we would expect rally art to continue that. Much of rally racing games are about the flow of driving and drifting, and the clear visual style of rally art should help you focus on the essentials of the rally.
A laundry list of classics
The game also focuses on iconic rally vehicles. Classic rally cars from the 60s to the 90s are the focus of the vehicles, and you can adjust the driving aids to your liking. Funselektor also nails the overall look. They all showcase their classic livery designs, such as the iconic blue and gold paint job of the Subaru Impreza as well as the Italian Lancia Stratos look.
There are 50 cars in total to race on 60 rally stages. That’s not a bad turnout for a game of this stature, and it looks instantly replayable. To start, rally art features a photo and replay mode, so you can capture those unique photos while you run.
The art of rallyingy is now available on PC via To smoke.
