I stumbled across this video from 2014 by user SynaMax...I wasnt aware "Drive Fractalus" got recycled into "MegaRace".





I loved the game as a kid :D




Not much can be found online...anyone here ? :)



Also the "reboot" looks like still beeing made...incl. Lance Boyle :D

You can always look for info in magazines of the era, it will take you a while!

The full video from which the Drive Fractalus footage is extracted is available at https://www.abandonware-videos.org/affiche_vid.php?vid=5&page=2
It's the 3rd one, Over Game.
I did make a thread about it on AG long ago where i posted english subtitles.

There was a thread about Drive Fractalus too iirc.

Oh wow ! Thank you so much for sharing these ! :D

The intros of these french magazines alone got me glued to the screen. Epic ! :D

Seeing all these memories, all the games I played...all those epic musics that I remember.

Felt like one of those "arte" art shows they showed at nights back then...

The thread with the subtitles:

That particular tv show was quite something, yes.
The Imagina specials are very cool too!

"Tracks" on Arte is more music oriented but they did/do some nice stuff on the computer/hacker/demoscene, sometimes.

There is a sister website with all sorts of computer/gaming french paper magazines at https://www.abandonware-magazines.org/
