“As fans of F1 and the Mario Kart saga, we were missing an experience that united these two worlds taking advantage of all the possibilities that Virtual Reality can offer. We wanted to bring all the excitement and crazy fun of the kart-type arcade games into a universe where we always find new challenges and where we can compete with our friends. ”-Ivan Cascales, Founder and CEO at Ivanovich Games.
With the help of the community, Spanish Developer Ivanovich Games has been compromised to keep polishing and adding features to Touring Karts since it was launched about 3 months ago on Steam Early Access, we want to thank our community for their continuous feedback and support.
