Yes, it is licensed from its creators.

Did you get permission to use this game name from 3D Realms?

There's a natural drift that happens as you slide around curves, but we opted against an extra drift button. Hopefully it strikes a nice balance between old and new. Apologies that I haven't updated the site.... networking continues to be a drag. I have tentative plans to get this guy up on Early Access without online multiplayer added. But I need to wrap a few things up first.

will this version have drift boosts like new kart games or it will be exactly like the old whacky wheels? I think it would add more depth

Also, just so folks know, we're getting close to the next round of beta testing. We gutted and rewrote the code underneath online multiplayer, since we had so many issues with our first implementation. Our expectation is to start testing that feature again next week and then move into the next round of testing right after.

Honestly we wanted to do something different than the multitude of generic 3D kart racing games, hence the retro look. :)

Probably would have looked better with 3D Graphics... But then again thats what Mario karts is a 3D clone of Wacky Racers.. And the seem to be like a million clones of Mario karts

I was a huuuge fan of original WW when i was 3-5 years old. Even bought the original game here on Steam. And will buy ur remake too cuz i always dreamt about it to be revamped!

What is the button-combo to throw money at this!?!? So frustrating. You have some money. You've found something you want to throw it at. And then there's no throw-money-at-button!
