So, I'm a big fan of the Dreamcast console system. I was crushed when it folded, not least because Ripcord Games was developing a Gorkamorka driving/shooting/RPG-type game for PC and Dreamcast. I was lamenting the loss all over again today - I've been on a big Dreamcast kick for the last few days. So, I did a search, and lo and behold - a playable demo was released when the game was still in production!!! How the frag did this escape me? Anyway, I'm downloading it as we speak (it's about 70 megs), and I'll let you all know how it works. :thumbs :dakka

Arrgghgh!!! It doesn't seem to want to work - every time I go to race, it crashes to the desktop. :bleep , :bleep , :bleep ing :bleep ! Sooo tempting, too, there's a pub where you hire Boyz, a Mekshop, a Garage... Crap.

On the brighter side - supposedly, all three of Ripcord Games' projects that were abandoned for Dreamcast are going to be developed for Xbox - and presumably, PC! Gorkamorka on Xbox might just give me a reason to buy one of those... :P *drool*

the gorkamorka game was sposed to be released on x box after the dreamcast market collapsed, but like halo2 it sits in development despite having release dates, its also rumored that this maybe released for x box 2, which would mean you could get a better console if u wait, but then theres no set date for that either! annoying is an understatement

DestryYouAlot - Thanks for the link - I'll try it when I get access to my faster computer. What system are you running? Maybe that is why it crashes... BTW I Absolutly LOVE my DC. Wouldn't trade it for nothing.

Right? I just fixed the one I had (and the one I bought for parts), and grabbed Soul Calibur and Tony Hawk 2. Love my DC, I just need to track down Skies of Arcadia and Panzer Dragoon, and maybe Dead or Alive 2. Great, great system. My PC was ballsy enough when this demo came out, I think it's just broken-ish. Can anybody else get this to work?

I'll download it tonight and see what happens... I've also got Soul caliber (Wicked fighting game), NFL 2K, NBA 2K, NHL 2K. Crazy Taxi (the reason I bought the system), and Tony Hawk 1. Mostly these I've found on eBay in cheap lots since it is very hard to find the games in my area. But now I'm going to start to downlaod them though.

Mmm.. Seems like I can't download it from the site. Oh well, we'll just have to wait until it comes out for X-Box.

This demo came out 3 years ago. It's horrible, the graphics are horribly dated(even by DC standards!), the polycounts are pathetic and textures look like complete shite. Have I mentioned that this game has no gameplay? I'm not joking or anything here! You're trapped in a circuit driving around in circles shooting rockets out of your multi-melta gun on the buggy. You can't win, there's no laps or anything like a racing game, and shooting is incredibly boring. Plus the game is so damn buggy it's not even funny, not to mention the complete lack of a physics engine. THIS GAME IS WORSE THAN COUNTER-STRIKE! DON'T WASTE 10 MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE PLAYING THIS GARBAGE GAME.

i don't know if i'd say its as bad as guru's RANT implies.

the demo doesn't offer much, driving a buggy around in a loop shooting rockets.

however it does look like there was going to be a lot more content inthe actual game.

if you poke around in the menus you can see what was going to be offered.

however i must say it looks truer to gorkamorka than DoW is to 40k

Geez I dunno, this game has nothing to do with gorkamora. I've never played gorkamorka, but I'm quite positive it wasn't a racing game in a closed circuit. Doesn't matter anyways since it's been cancelled 2 years ago. And yes it's bad, this game would get HORRIBLE reviews anyways. The game was incredibly amateur.

that game is a dog. Its just a crude shoot'em up with lousey graphics. It could have been so much more, alas and alackaday.

I got a Dreamcast, and Street Fighter 3 Alpha was great on it (2v1 gamemode was fun ^_^ ), and SoulCaliber 1 was exselent, one of my fav beat-em ups ever (I liked the arcade mode on Ultra hard). shame about GorkaMorka though :search .
