Kart Sim – Open Beta Starting In December

The open beta phase of Kart Sim will kick of in the first two weeks of December.

Back in September, Zach Griffin released a new batch of preview material of his Kart Sim simulation that has been in development for over four years now.

Now, Zach has announced that the public beta phase of the title is due to kick off in the first two weeks December, giving a first batch of testers the chance to experience the new title. Right now, no further info on how potential testers will be selected is available.

Kart Sim will be accurately simulating the the thrill of driving a racing kart, the starting point of almost every professional racing career. To ensure realism, the title uses an industry standard tire model and a real-time FEM model to simulate the flex of the chassis.

The title is based on the Unity engine that is paired up with a scratch-made physics engine developed by Zach. The title is planned to be released in Q1 2012.
