Capy Fine Racing GP is a new racer starring Capy and Double Fine characters to be released on 3.5” floppy discs at PAX East, Capy co-founder Nathan Vella has told us.
Studios Capy and Double Fine are sharing a booth at the event, and have teamed up to develop the racer. “Ken [Yeung] and Vic [Nguyen] made a game called Capy Fine Racing GP, which is a little jokey – but still rad fun – OutRun-style racer staring Capy and Double Fine characters,” Vella told us.
“The game will be released on the 3.5″ floppies that come inside the Capy and Double Fine limited edition boxed bundle, AKA the retail version of the Steam bundle that we just launched which includes both studios’ Steam games. We only made 200 boxes, and even then some of the floppies might not work, but the people who buy them will be allowed and encouraged to share the game.”
It is not intended to be a ‘serious’ game, added Vella. “It’s just something we did for pure fun and loving the idea of doing cool shit with our friends, in the spirit of the Capy Double Fine PAX combo. While it’s totally a real game, it’s also not at all a real game.”
Update: Capy also sent us an exclusive first screenshot overnight – we’ve updated this post so that it’s the lead image above.
