D Series is Now Available in the Steam Store!
Test build is up on Steam..... Release Date coming soon.
Description
Release date: Early 2014
D Series is a new driving simulation that indie developer "devotid Media" has been working on quietly for the last two years. The game is intended for PC Computers. The game now supports ALL controller styles.
The focus is capturing the intensity of off road driving and trying to give folks the idea of what its like to harness the big power of these off road beasts. The game will feature a Practice mode, Computer AI offline racing mode and also a Multiplayer Mode to battle your friends. I have finished 5 vehicles and 5 tracks so far. There is also a replay mode, GPS mode, moveable on screen HUDs, custom paint-able vehicles, damage, dirt build up, Trackside animated spectators, Global Leaderboards and time of day with night driving....

We have started this Greenlight to to raise awareness of our new project. Please check out the early Videos and In Game Screenshots. We are currently working on new videos as well, as these are a few months old now and don't show all the new features we have added. If you think is something you would like to see on Steam please help us out and give us an up vote.

The game also has a free demo of 1 car and 1 track to "test it out" on your system before purchasing the full game. I plan on making more tracks and vehicles after the public betas are up and running and the main framework has been stress tested.

I am also VERY excited to announce that I have decided to focus 110% on releasing an early full version TODAY! I have spent the last week building a special new Version 093 for sale on the D Series Website for $18 USD. Complete with 5 cars, 5 tracks with Global Leader boards and a couple other surprises. ;)

Full version available for sale at our website here. http://www.devotid.com/dseries/purchase.html

The full game is AVAILABLE right now for purchase. No more waiting. I have also added a few options for "extra backing" on the purchase page for this early stage to help pay for the Multiplayer. I have also added some Ad Packages for interested Companies to get their name on some in game placements. If you can please help spread the word to anybody that may be interested playing the game that would help tremendously.

I will add the clothing and swag packs on our web store when they are available in time.

Again Thank you for your support and I hope to see you out on the track.

You can use any resolution monitor that you like but obviously, the bigger the better....;) The game was designed with 1920 x 1080 HD. D Series will also support triple monitors and almost all resolutions. We are still working on “oculus Rift and True-Triple screen Rendering” and plan to include them in future builds.

Mine works perfect with a G27, Thrustmaster and logitech g25 and a logitech driving force pro.

Tha game was developed with a G25, G27 and thrustmaster..... So im pretty sure it works. ;)

I vote yes, There has been too much time passed that a great offroad racing sim has shown up. I am Personal friends with the owner of KING offroad racing shocks, so i am going to go see if they will sponsor you guys. I have a feeling a little advertisement wouldnt be bad for them, and i know the gamers of the racing world will enjoy having king shocks in this game.
