Mega Drive "Mode 7" Kart Racer Demo

Inspired by the SNES's most well known and best loved racer, this Mega Drive kart racer work in progress demo looks fantastic. Although the Mega Drive/ Genesis had many strengths, it lacked the hardware sprite scaling capabilities of the SNES that were known as mode 7 graphics, meaning that Mario Kart like games were thought to be more or less impossible. Thanks to some clever coding though this demo proves that untrue, with a software scaling routine that looks almost as good as the SNES version.  Here's hoping that this gets developed into a full game.
