This is a refreshing announcement. Deep Silver is working on an off road racing game for all major platforms that is actually NOT aiming for realism. Simulation is all fine and dandy, but occasionally you just want a game that will take you from zero to awesome without a two month learning curve. It is just this Arcade Style that their new game nail’d is shooting for. Read on for the press release and some screenshots.
Deep Silver Announces Lightning-Fast Arcade Racer, nail’d™
Hermosa Beach, CA – April 22, 2010 – Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a worldwide producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, announced today they will publish nail’d™, a new arcade-style off-road racer for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.
nail’d eschews boring realism for over the top arcade fun. It’s a racer that challenges everything from player reflexes to the rules of physics. Riding on ATVs and motocross bikes with powerful boost controls, players will race down near-vertical courses of incredible jumps, stunts and obstacles at an unprecedented level of speed. nail’d also shatters conventions when it comes to track design by emphasizing verticality and unbelievable drops instead of simply adding in a few jumps on mainly horizontal paths.
“Based on the response we’ve had from those who’ve seen it, we’re sure that nail’d is going to redefine expectations of games of this genre,” said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer at Deep Silver. “To compete in the category, you have to be confident that you’re going to stand out and nothing that I’ve seen on the shelves compares to what we’re bringing to gamers. This game is going to give new meaning to the word adrenaline.”
In addition to various exciting single-player modes, nail’d features an incredibly robust collection of multiplayer options for up to 12 players. Combined with an electrifying soundtrack featuring licensed music and original tunes composed and performed by heavy metal luminaries, un-lockable vehicle customization options and incredibly detailed leader boards, nail’d has something to offer racing fans of all types.
nail’d, developed by Techland, is scheduled for a worldwide launch in the 4th calendar quarter of 2010. For more information, visit http://www.naildgame.com, follow us on Twitter @naildgame, or on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/naildgame.

There’s the official stuff. It looks like it might be good, even if they are pushing the EXTREME TO THE MAX stuff a little hard. Let alone the title that could make a grammar Nazi hemorrhage, the fact sheet includes phrases like this one:
If ‘big air’in other games is earth-sized, nail’d is like a twin galaxy of stomach-in-mouth terror.
Easy there, copy writers. This is starting to sound like PowerThirst: The Game.
