    Bought this t'other day and I'm loving it! Brilliant grahpics and great detail on the cars, especially when you have a little off and start ripping them apart. :D

    €10 for some very decent racing is worth it, whatever the final code turns out to be. Surprised you didn't jump on this ages ago, given your fetish for GT's etc.

    Had a very quick blast on the weekend, with a 360 controller. First impressions are ace, very professional considering this is an alpha build. Going to dust off my old MS Sidewinder wheel and pedals...

    This and rfactor2 will make 2012 the most awesome year for gaming!!!

    Will have to give it a try then!
    Do you have to download a complete new build each week or is a patch/update?

    Really like the idea of this business model for PC game development.

    Whole version each time, though it's pretty quick through their legit torrent.

    Thanks, considering upgrading my account..
    Anyone thought that their sales figures might be a bit too high as a lot of the people who would buy the final game have already joined this project, thus giving a smaller return?

    I would imagine they're banking on a decent conversion rate from alpha to retail release, as well as a flood of new customers wanting it. :)

    Either way, I'm enjoying it. The Atoms are the current focus of my attention, but they're tricky so and so's to get right! Maybe I need to practice with the other MR's first, then try the road-tyred Atoms.
