    You've seen Phateca. You've seen Identity Crisis. You may even have seen Yinisaeger if you're familiar with the All's Fair competition over at I/O. Well... This monstrosity-on-buggy-frame is (obviously) a combination of Trixed's Shino, MightyCucumber's Shinobi and my own Hoshino. Made using texture baking.

    A wacky, borderline shitpost-y idea that sprung to my mind way too late to be an April Fool's release... but have it anyway, because why not. It's listed as a Misc. car because of its "joke" nature, but it has some actually sensible Semi-Pro parameters.

  1. It’s a way better car than I’d expect from a meme. Nicely balanced against vanilla Semi-Pros. Very pleasurable on track and pretty interesting in turns. As long as the track isn’t too narrow so you don’t catch anything on the wheels, it’s a really well-made racer.

    Also, transition from Shino to Hoshino is just masterful. Love it to bits.

  2. Looks weird as hell, like a thing of fever dreams..yet it handles like a beauty. I am not a fan of it’s looks obviously, but…am I really going to say I had fun driving this….?

    I went as far as downloading and driving so, yes I am. Denial is a common thing and I’m not lowering myself to that level yet. You should’ve released this on Halloween though, because this sure is a frankenstein car and a half, even though it isn’t the most original idea. Yet, it works, as much I hate admitting it.
