The Conduit developers are bringing multiplayer racing to WiiWare this fall.

High Voltage Software recently announced the pending release of High Voltage Hot Rod Show, a new racing title for WiiWare. The Conduit developers' latest game uses their proprietary Quantum 3 Game Engine to provide "graphical performance and gameplay not possible on other Wii titles." Featuring four-player split-screen, High Voltage Hot Rod Show not only has a focus on racing but also on the game's stunt system, which gives players multiple ways to boost. The game will also feature online leaderboards.

"(High Voltage Hot Rod Show) is easy to pick up and play, but maintains a core of skill-based racing, which gives it special appeal," said Kerry Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software.

High Voltage Hot Rod Show is awaiting release on WiiWare.

High Voltage Software announces new multiplayer racer for WiiWare

Hoffman Estates, IL – October 10, 2008 - High Voltage Software, Inc., one of the world's largest independent developers, today announced High Voltage Hot Rod Show, an intense new racing title scheduled for release on the WiiWare downloadable service later this Fall.

High Voltage Hot Rod Show requires players to master more than the basic racing skills to compete. A unique stunt system gives players multiple ways to build boost, which drastically increases a Hot Rod's speed. If you get too greedy, you might crash and burn! The game utilizes the company's proprietary Quantum 3 Game Engine technology, which provides graphical performance and game play not possible on other Wii titles.

"We wanted High Voltage Hot Rod Show to be a fresh and exciting racing title for the Wii that would provide up to four friends with endless replay value," said Kerry Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software. "The result is a game that is easy to pick up and play, but maintains a core of skill-based racing, which gives it special appeal."

"Style was important to us on this project," said Benjamin Savage, Lead Artist on the title. "We were inspired by the work of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and that led us to design some really exciting characters, Hot Rods, and even music. We hope players will love the direction we've taken."

"We set the bar for ourselves very high with each new title" said Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer of High Voltage Software. "Not only have we created a fantastic racing title with support for split-screen racing and online leaderboards, but we've also demonstrated the incredible versatility of the Quantum 3 Game Engine."

I guess this will be a better way to show off their engine than a blackjack game (Gyrostarr doesn't really count since its graphics have totally different goals).  My appetite for racing is usually quickly sated, so a WiiWare game is actually fairly tempting.  Also, .

In an interview they said they had to cut two tracks from the game due to the size limit, maybe they could add those as DLC...
