For a while, everything was fair game for kart racing games. Everything. From ‘Shrek’ to ‘El Chavo del Ocho,’ including ‘Crash Bandicoot,’ PlayStation characters, ‘Mega Man,’ and even M&M or Garfield. If it can get into a car somehow and shoot bananas, it had to be programmed to make some quick bucks. The trend fell out of favor some time ago, when it became socially accepted that ‘Mario Kart’ was the only one that knew how to do these things, and the rest were just following behind. But there are those who refuse to let it die. Luckily.
Death in the Kart
This is the case of Lilith Walker, Corwyn Prichard, and Evelyn Lark, who once created a de-make of ‘Bloodborne‘ with graphics from the original PlayStation. Now, they have decided to create the most impossible game: ‘Bloodborne Kart.’ And this isn’t a joke for a funny trailer or anything of the sort: the game will be available on January 31, 2024, for all those who missed the Hunter and his Saw Cleaver while throwing red shells and becoming Bill Bala.
What’s most incredible is that it’s not just a simple flash game for a quick laugh; no, they have gone all out. Twelve characters, sixteen race tracks, final bosses to face in a campaign mode (which Nintendo hasn’t dared to attempt yet), local multiplayer, carts, all kinds of weapons, from machine guns to Molotov cocktails… An utterly insane, self-funded endeavor that we can’t wait to play.
The graphics, of course, will resemble those of the PSOne more than the PS5 (obviously), but considering the entire game will be absolutely free, what more could you ask for? Never before has a game born from a meme offered so much, demonstrating that studios should waste no time in hiring the Fan Software team behind this delightful subversion. Let the race for your soul begin.
