In the absence of a new Burnout game, something that's quite a lot like a new Burnout game will have to do, particularly when it's quite a lot like the best bit of Burnout: the messy playground of destruction that was Crash mode. Truck Stop, from one of the creators of Burnout - 'creator' is a word which here means 'he worked on a couple of games' - is such a thing, and if you approve of causing mass vehicle-based catastrophes you can now vote for it on Steam Greenlight (opens in new tab) , or buy into an unfinished version over on IndieCity (opens in new tab) .

Can someone remake/be inspired by/copy Destruction Derby now, please?

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
