SouthPeak Announces Things on Wheels for XBLA, PC


Following up last year’s Xbox Live Arcade release of its arcade party racer Mad Tracks, Paris-based dev studio Load Inc. is now working on a new RC car racer entitled Things on Wheels, which SouthPeak Games has announced this week it will be bringing to XBLA and PC this summer. With the acquisition, Things on Wheels has become SouthPeak’s debut XBLA title.

“Load Inc. wanted to do something brand new with the racing genre, and this really appealed to us,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “Competing with real life remote control cars is great fun, so why not do it in a videogame? ToW delivers the same reckless thrill.”

“ToW is what the Xbox LIVE Arcade community has been asking for since day one. It’s a competitive racing game with bits of fun and lots of interactivity if you just want to goof around. After Mad Tracks, we had to concentrate on just racing, but always with a twist,” said Denis Bourdain, big wig at Load Inc. “It’s a fresh racing experience we built on everything we’ve learned in the past 12 years, and it will rock you! We’re very proud to be working with one of the sexiest publishers today. All of our developer friends are just plain jealous. SouthPeak rules!”
