It is Hard Drivin’ or Hard Drivin’ II? (position 33) https://www.denofgee...iated-dos-games

Not sure anyway, it seems first person view only and not that cartoonish.

This seems like a quite fitting thread to post this. I'm looking for an old (probably very obscure) dosgame I think, though might have been on Windows. It was a 3rd person cartoonish racing game with sprites (played the demo of it probably around 1995 but might be older) There was one level where cows would occasionally run out on the road and you could drive over them. Also there was one level with thunder. Not sure what more to say about it, but it was pretty original for it's time.


Was it this?

Nah I don't think that is it actually, but the style looks pretty close. I think the graphics and music are a bit too good though, and this seems to have been released in 1996. I believe it was in 1995 I played the demo. I guess my memory could be wrong also so I need to watch some more clips of this.

BC Racers is from 1995, is a racing game, is cartoonish, it has a level with thunders, is in third person... But casual cows? I don't think in prehistoric Flintstonesque set.

Not that game either. As I said probably very obscure. Probably sucked anyway. And also I need to keep in mind that my memory might be making things up. :P

Holy shit :o I think you hit the nail on the head... This seems very familiar. Checking some videos, but yes. I think you solved the mystery.

*Those cows or whatever might be a fake memory*

Lol, I looked for games that resembled the one I linked before since you said the art style was similar. Team work saved the day! World Rally Fever had sheep that you could run over.

"Sub Culture", 1997 from Criterion Studios and published by UbiSoft. Shares similarities with the set of Archimedean Dynasty, it's sequels Aquanox 1/2, Critical Depth or Treasure Of The Deep (even them games that you could consider quite forgotten).

Among the unknown creatures that inhabit the ocean depths there are humanoids no more taller than one centimeter resident in colonies. These colonies are divided into two factions: Procha and Bohine, always fighting each other for supremacy. In addition to these there are also the Pirates and the Brotherhood of traders. In all this we are Bubba Kush, an independent seeker and seller of a very demanded multi-purpose mineral called Thorium. One day, backing to his home, he finds out that the habitation got destroyed by a can thrown from a human boat. There is nothing left for him now, submarine apart, so all he can do is descend into the depths of the colonies doing the free-lance mercenary/merchant, taking advantage of the competitions between the two civilizations.

Like most games of the period, to get the maximum graphical performance you would have
needed a video card with native support for 3dfx, PowerVR or Rendition graphic chipset. All the others are supported trough Direct 3D, however it is possible use a Glide Wrapper to obtain the same results of a 3dfx.

Surprisingly, it even exist a little Hires Pack made by ccalonnec.fr Computer Trivia. Just extract and replace all the files in subculture\gametex folder.
Attached File  Sub_Culture_RTP20_750.rar (2.59MB)
Number of downloads: 7

It should work without any particular compatibility trick, but eventually you can always follow these or these instructions.

Complete walkthrough

This is not trolling, but wasn't there a topic like "Last game you played"? I have completed a lot of games during the last two years and I would like to share my opinions.

Ok Jackie, now it's my turn...
