Ferrari Project – Visit to Blimey! Games

The following is not really hard news but given the extreme lack of info on Blimey’s Ferrari Project, every bit of an update is precious. RSC user Dom_D has had the honor to visit Blimey! Games and try their Ferrari Project simulation.

He posted the following in the RaceSimCentral forums, sounds very promising to say the least:

Hi all, I went to Blimey yesterday and met Ian , nice guy and free drinks! Ian made me sign an NDA so I can’t go into any details… but I tried the Ferrari game, all i can say is Holy moly, the gfx are better than Gran turismo, the lighting was spot on, the real time reflections on the car were amazing, the general effects are just a new level.

I only drove it on an Xbox 360 pad but it felt really natural, the physics engine has been re-done it seems from scratch, they have a great physics team of 3 guys including Eero from RBR fame! I think the main thing i noticed was the atmosphere, the ambient sounds and graphic effects really make you feel like you are on track, the amount of movement and ‘life’ all around is quite breathtaking.

Anyway, I was quite shocked how much better this looked than most other titles, nothing on the PC comes close, iRacing for instance looks like its 4 years behind.
