SouthPeak unveils XBLA racer

Things On Wheels due this summer.

French developer Load Inc. is back for another crack at an Xbox Live Arcade racing game with Things On Wheels, due out in summer 2008 via publisher SouthPeak. Exact pricing has yet to be revealed.

Described as an "accessible, pure arcade racing title", it sees you driving remote-control cars around the rooms of a house with tracks built up of everyday items.

The twist is that routes are more freeform, and it sounds as though there's more scope for carving your own path between objectives, through table legs or past electric heaters. Sort of like Midnight Club meets Micro Machines.

Load Inc.'s last XBLA game, Mad Tracks, divided opinion, but SouthPeak and Load, Inc. are confident that this one will be better, with a source close to the developer indicating there was a bit more filthy gaminglucre behind this one.

SouthPeak has only released one screenshot, for now, but we put it on the internet for you anyway. Enjoy!
