Arkedo co-founder working on The Next Penelope, a sci-fi racer


Arkedo co-founder Aurelien Regard is developing a stylish PC racing game inspired by Nintendo's F-Zero series, IndieGames.com reports.

The Next Penelope challenges players to survive a series of overhead-view races interspersed with high-speed, free-roaming boss battles. The game is currently in development for Windows, Mac, and Linux, though IndieGames notes that developer Regard is "very interested" in console ports.

Pix'n Love Rush and Hell Yeah! creator Arkedo disbanded last year due to a lack of studio funding. Co-founder Regard went on to launch the arcade-style platformer Poof vs. The Cursed Kitty for PC platforms in November.
