Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20[Music]hello and welcome that's who they show Iam here today taking a look at the artof rally which is an absolutelyfantastic looking little rally gametribes very well indeed and this is theWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40demo of the game you can actuallydownload to have a go yourself I'll havea link in the description because I verymuch recommend it it's wonderful I wasexcited about this game as soon as I sawit was being made students or picturesand videos and whatnot of it it looks itlooks incredible and it drives as wellas you might hope being in the demowe've only got one stage at the momentto play around with us in Finland thereWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00isn't I don't think AI times anyway sothat doesn't all particularly matterI've got the stage we got it in Reverseas wellOh surely you're the nice sunset let'sgo for a sunset right so we have got onestage we got lots of weather to choosefrom for that stage from rain andnighttime and I haven't actually seenthe sunset yet cars we've got to at themoments to play with again being a demoWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20we have a Metro 6r4 and we have anescort and they've got other namescopyright and all that but we know whatthey are really let's start with themetro shall we let's go for the actualactual liveries oohwe've got interesting color sky going onnow the graphics might not be tooabsolutely everyone's taste so that'sWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40fair enough personally I think this gameis is incredibly incredibly pretty therein a replay mode as well that we'll havea look at in a minute yeah I think it'sa phenomenal phenomenal looking gamelet's not Bulls things up in meat veryeasy to make mistakes on this now youWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00may almost feel familiar with the cameraangle everything that is because this ismade by the same team that made absolutedrift which was another very very wellmade top-down or drifting game in thatcase with driving game and I have to saythey know what they're doing when itcomes to both the top-down camera anglewhich is a very difficult one to pulloff I have to say it's not like you seeWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20very often these days but the top-downcamera angle for racing is yeah Ohcareful now is very difficult you needthe camera to be able to see far enoughaheadeven kind of plan what's going on wellstill being able to see what your car isdoing where it actually is on the roadespecially when we've got rallying whenWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40you bear in mind there's lots of thingslike trees and hills and all sorts ofother dangers now we've already got onestage here to play around with so Icouldn't possibly comment on everythingbut I am gonna say I've got a bloodygood job here it doesn't go gonna blowI'm not doing a very good job with mycar that's not me but it no point did itWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00feel like I was fighting the camera nowwhenever I play top-down racing games isoften taken quite a bit to get justicebut here despite this being what isprobably one of the almost worst sortsof racing for a top-down viewpointsnever really felt like I was fightingthe camera all that much so yeah creditwhere credit is dueit won't be for everybody this cameraWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20angle there are some who very much donot like this and that's kind of fairenough but of all is that all thetop-down races I've ever played this hasdone it about the best well careful nowat the end of the day we are stillracing a rally car on some gravel and aquick ridiculous rally car on someWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40gravel as well here don't look at thebrake look at the pretty scenery I'vegot to try and keep control of his damnthing oh is this a jump now the onlydifficult bit Oh that will take somegetting used to is the elevation changesof course because you don't see thatquite as well from back here youWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00there are helpfully I guess and it'llprobably depend on rally to rally butthere are helpfully being Finland you'vegot like the big Gantt trees that kindof denote to where the really really bigjumps are there's a couple of placeswhere it's going to take some timegetting used to it there's kind of youcan sort of use the lighting to judgeWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20what is maybe down hill what is maybe uphill it's a different sort of challengeit's a different soil challenge butagain as I said does pretty good joblike there for example you can tell it'sdoing something here there's likely tobe a jump not a massive job that timearound and I mean to be fair Finland islet's face it the one that's going tohave the most ridiculous sort of jumpsWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40going on might ridiculous sort ofairtime OhI'm off the course a little bit get thecar back under control there we gothat's funnyoh yeah definitely sunset if you want avery very pretty rally stage to race thecars through of course I guess being topdown you also never get the ridiculousWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00glare that you can get in oh that's areally big jump no don't play with thetrees Christ yeah you never get crazythe crazy Falls a sunset doesn't glareon the screen the whole way it's give meanother crazy jump isn't it I almostwould be too ok didn't want to be toofast over there again it's a massiveWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20trouble now I've only run a few timesthrough hereI have no doubt you can get away withmore in these cars I have no doubt youcan all carry a lot more speed than I amI'm playing it a little bit cautiously Ithink we're now coming up towards theend of the stage here let's just not doanything silly around the final coupleWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40of quarters oh we're on the bankingthere that's fire we can pop the postsaway that's no problem at all I thinkwe've got a couple more corners thefinish line over there no no answerchange onto a different Road oh yeahchanged it to all those tired Roadthere's like a tarmac bit afterwards ohand there we goWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00though there is sometimes that's therewe are that's why they can be found Ididn't part I didn't notice it beforebut you can find some time so this wason one of the harder difficulties a lotmore speeds to be found in the car nodoubt at all I just I mean it he's agorgeous gorgeous game look at meWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20[Music]yeah I absolutely love this our staffit's great in that you know if you goover the photorealistic art style yesyou know it's possible to make quiterealistic looking games but unless youhave an insane budget after a littlewhile your game will age quitedrastically this will pretty much neverage you know it's always gonna look goodWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40with this sort of cartoony style I meanit's it's fantastic it really really isright so that is a run through the stagewith the what's my Corazon skills as atougher difficulty as well yeah I meanit's gonna be a tough game I haveOh doubt about it shall we go with IWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00want to go for can we get some rain comeon it doesn't seem to be at the moment away to oh bugger I skip through itthere's just mashing shuffle weatherthat doesn't even work to set theweather at the moment it's just shufflewe will do there we go that's what wewant so go for some rain and we're gonnaWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20run the escorts in the rain do we haveany do we have any fun liveries for theaah okay coollet's go and run the s but I haven'tdriven the rain yet so let's go and seewhat this might be like that looks likea very British sky we have going onWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40there we have it all puddles I'm gonnaexpect aquaplaning is gonna be a thingthat we're gonna have to deal withthat'll be I say fun that will beinteresting now of course the escorts ohyes okaysuch playing around with the puddlesseeing quite what they did to the carWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00okay so you have to be careful thepuddles are gonna throw the car around alittle bit it's gonna slide about moreof course this is a rear-wheel drive carso it is naturally gonna slide aboutmore probably oh yeah there we go walkover the second gear coming out thereit's there's a lot of puddles on thisfinish rally stay I've not really beenparticularly brave with the car here butWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20never mindoh oh okay now handling let's deal withlet's deal with handling physics shallwe it drives very well drives very wellindeed now it takes some getting used toI've turned off the stability controland God was yellow abs and all that sortWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40of thing now there is a setting that Ihave left on there like a steeringcorrection this makes a little nicer todrive with the controller I don't knowabout fifty percent for that at themoment I might get used to it I don'tknow where this game works with thewheel currently I haven't tried it itwould be interesting to try but ofcourse this camera angle does makeWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00perhaps steering inputs a little bitdifferent it's a good rulecareful thought but can we grab a bit ofhandbrake there we go yeah I'mdefinitely not the most confident withsliding the cars around the best oftimes here it is easier to get the carsinto a tank-slapper practice is going toWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20be needed but for you know what is akind of arcade top-down racer this has abetter handling model than a lot ofactual racing games I've played so againkudos on that one it is certainly it's ait's a challenge I think the best wayonly best way to describe it and this isalways a side of a good game is it'srelatively easy to pick up and driveit's gonna be tough to master you knowWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40you can well you can get the car throughthe stage but you want to do it quicklyit's gonna take some practice and I likethat about it you know it's certainlynot shying away from being a challenge avery very different animal the escort isto drive here Ohwhere are we going get it around thecorner yeah I can't really do I don'tWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00really trust myself to do much of thetail out antics with this car all thatwas probably not a place I wanted to geta massive airtime over not if I couldhelp it oh we're gonna slip no no noit's just the 10 mile an hour atank-slapper as I'm desperately tryingto get the car back under control againWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20oh I've got off there now there is comeon there we go there is there was adamage option I do know from a couple ofcrashes and pings I've had in sort ofpractice I haven't really seen and stuffhowever the damage is supposed to bothhave terminal terminal crashes that willknock you out and mechanical damage thatWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40will slow your car down I don't know ifthere is any sort of UI information totell you when you I presume thereprobably will be somewhere at some pointmay is a lovely minimalist you I'dyou've got going on you've got the howfar you are through the stage on theleft I'm at the top right and the gearsat the bottom and that's that's it andthat's kind of all you need walk focusesWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00on well it gives you as much of thescreen to see where you're going it'spossible while giving you with theinformation you might possibly wantaround oh that was there that was quickand it was sort of out on the edge onthe edge of grip with this carokay a little bit what I mean this isWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20just yeah he's more more practice youhave I'll is about certainly morecomfort with a car and then isimmediately I got into trouble come onthere's a gear in there or there's aforward momentum in there somewheredon't I said Oh slide around and theykind of supposed to slide around a bitwith an escort rally car however howeverwe've already spun it a couple of timesWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40no there goes that tank-slapper gateit's just if that starts happening I'mgonna grab the brake and we're gonnasort it out first and then worry aboutaccelerating afterwards it's silly I saylooks silly and we lose timehowever we lose less time doing thatthan having a crash every big jump oclock because do kind of like bounceWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00around on the lander you've got toreally set the cars up for the jumps Imean while yes kind of visually it'sit's very arkady game you still got tobe very careful with the vehiclesthey'll bounce around all the landingsyou take off slightly twisted orslightly misaligned the car you aregonna be in trouble I don't know whetherWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20you can roll the cars now he's always asign of a good game as if you can roll acar naturallyI haven't I haven't managed to in myexperimenting so far but that's not tosay that you can'tcertainly there are I have no doubtsituations where you can even like Iguess the crashes that I've had sort ofWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40running wheels into like ditches and soI haven't relates to or mostly of hittrees my dutymostly I've hit trees more often thannot the crashes have just involved tankslappers and spinning the car they're allsaid some some very assists you can turnon to I kind of give you assistance withall of that oh-o-oh finish like littleWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00white middle wide of it apparently I wasfastest through that stage I like I'dlike electrical issues that's kind ofcool wow they really did not like thatstage in the wet I'll take it I mightdid I turn them everybody I don't evenremember personally however I've alsojust noticed and the guys name in secondWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20I like in facta lot of them are actual rally driver Ididn't notice when that first one butyes a lot of them are actual rallydrivers which is which is very cool Ilike that just with slightly slightlyaltered names I have no doubt you've gotWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40much quicker than that through thereneed a little bit more practice therefinally I'm gonna run so we're gonna runthe stage in Reverse I'm gonna run it atnight now I have experienced this gameat nighttime it's bloody terrifiednormally when I'm filming videos I tendto avoid night stages or any sort ofnight racing really unless pros veryWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00specific reason predominantly becausewell some of you might be or else aphone or you know worse quality not sogood internet etc and well I mean you'renot going to see much help me currentlyfilming this can't really see much goingon cuz I got glare going on on themonitor a bit so this can be really funso gonna run the stage you reverse IWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20mean rallying at night is alwaysterrifying I don't know whether you canbreak your lights you would be entirelyscrewed if you did especially with thiskind of camera angle but yeah you can gofor the full nighttime experience nowthis is maybe a smidge oh well you knowWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40what else about rolling a car fantasticit is fully fair race approved of courseof course I managed to do it aftertalking about said yet you could roll Idon't know quite what I hit or how Irolled there and I was go over a crestyeah but this does kind of make like theWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00elevation changes a little easier tospot in some ways because of the wayyour life it's just very pretty and verycleverly done but yeah you can kind offigure out where the elevation changesare by what's get will gets lit up andthe little like reflective poles alongthe sides make it just it makes it lookdoable basically it makes it so that youcan actually see what's going on and canWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20jet you have just enough information tobe able to figure it all outoh that's gonna be a big crash and nowit's difficult to see from this angle assuch but certainly from the replayangles and whatnotyou can have you'll get like the brakediscs glowing on the car as you drivearound again oh that's a tough cornerall of a sudden oh yeah the brake thisWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40will glow I like the little fireshooting out the back of the car it'sall very very effective at night timewe're gonna round the heavy I mean okaysure this is just the reverse of theprevious age I don't know the stage wellenough to really feel confident with itlet alone now suddenly tackling in adifferent direction where are we goingWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00don't knowno Metro thank you for being a littlebit more I mean I have a little bit moreconfidence in the all-wheel-drive rallycar that I do the rear-wheel drive onewe're not having issues with selecttanks lappers going on the rear-wheeldrive very lightweight escortscan get you in trouble the Metro 6r4 ishardly that whoa the easiest vehicle inWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19the world to drive at the end of the dayand around the hairpin we go little bitof sliding just the faintest yeah I'mnot anywhere in any way I'm not goodenough with the handling model to beable to make the most of cycling carsWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40around so I am just gonna drive in theway that's gonna get me through thecourse as quick as possible with as fewmistakes as possible while admiring it'svery easy to get distracted by howpretty everything is in kind of like areally interesting minimal minimalistway sorry very easy to what that I don'twant to go exploring the scenery aWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00little bit perhaps more than almostdriving the cars around here[Music]through they stages some probably somebig jumps coming up I don't really lookforward to some of the other stages itsupposed to be a bunch of differentdifferent countries a load of cars Ireally cannot wait to play this gamereally very very much looking forward toabsolute drift was again I loved I'm notWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20a drifter in any way shape or form but Ivery much enjoy playing through thatgame because it was it was excellent thecars were lovely to drive the all thecars were great to drive all challengeswere fantastic again that was a similarsort of graphical style as just takingit to a whole nother level and IWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40especially loved having a replay editoror let's say like a replay itactually gotta watch the replay and havesome camera angles the photo mode inthere as well that the thumbnail imagewould have probably come from so yeahlaunch the car that's a huge huge amountof airtime across there but we've got itdown in time there's actually not beinga terrible run for me so far I'm notWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00gonna I shouldn't have said that becausenow we know what the first commentatoris like yep there's a tree there it'simmediate immediate immediate curse ofthe commentator has gone on oh andthere's a couple more corners to go Iknow this is just before thee was theWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20start line this little bit on the tarmacOh King go get used to sort of differentgrip levels on the different surfacesit's fine through there that will beacross the finish line we've got afourth we got quicker we got quicker wegot up yeah that's not too bad I'm along way apparently I'm good with theWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40rear wheel drive car despite beingterrible and bad with theall-wheel-drive despite being better Idon't know we lost a little bit of timewith that exploration but that wouldhave still put us fourth anywayregardless did say hashtags code on thebottom of the car I believe it did butWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00there we go yes go and check this gameout give it give the demo me the demo isit's free to download it's not a picdownload go and give it a try because itis a hundred percent worth it look athow pretty the game is and it drives itdrives pretty much as good as it as goodas it looks I cannot wait to to playWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20this game properly when it does come outthat though is going to be it from methank you all very much for watching anduntil next time a goodbye[Music]

  1. i feel like this camera angle would suit realistic graphics more to make it look like a TV broadcast.
    While the traditional gaming camera angles would look nicer with this style here than for example in DiRT Rally 2.0.

  2. never in my life have I downloaded a demo so fast I loved and played the everloving shit out of absolute drift and thelast line in it "now that you have mastered drift you should go master rally" been waiting that game ever since

  3. ok this game better have god damn mods this time as much as i love absolute drift and am a die hard rally fan not having mods killed absolute drift and its so easy to enable steam workshop for a game and sure its score based and competitive but worst case scenario you could disable competitive scoring for modded tracks or even have there own records and same with cars yet they refused to do this with absolute drift

  4. Id love to see the suvi-sprint rally from my summer car in game and maybe a datsun 100a to be you satsuma or maybe just a map editor

  5. Even for a low-polygon aesthetic, "Art of Rally" looks gorgeous! Even for a sim racing fan like myself, it is refreshing to see something a bit more playful and not as dead serious. Great video!

  6. There was a similar game on android with the same style of graphic but i don't remember name of that game ?
    Somebody knows ? I would love to play that game again.
