    ARE YOU A GIRLIE-MAN OR A MEGARACER?


    Welcome to a future where anything - absolutely anything - goes. MEGARACE is the auto combat game that combines mind-blowing driving with no rules, no holds barred combat and the most depraved road gangs ever assembled.

    MEGARACE goes light years beyond today's generation of games with visually stunning cyberscapes, surreal track layouts and the kicker of them all - you're actually a gameshow contestant on VWBT (Virtual World Broadcast Television) with your host Lance Boyle.

    You get real "television look" graphics with smooth action made possible by advanced compression techniques and real-time data transfers from CD-ROM. Thrill to more than 25 minutes of digitized video that will forever change the way you look at video entertainment.

    With MEGARACE, it's your speed, your aggression and your cunning that will get you through. Winning is the only thing that counts. It's either that or die.

    Strap in and get ready for a rollercoaster ride from hell.

    WIN OR DIE!

Back Cover - DOS (US Best Seller Release):
    THIS IS THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE... OR DEATH! YOU’VE GOT TO FIGHT TO FINISH.

    It’s the incredibly stunning visual communications highway of the future, and you’re the star of VWBT Network’s hit show — MEGARACE — with an audience that’s out for blood. To keep ratings up (the meaner you are, the higher they get), you’re pitted against five of the nastiest drivers ever to take a wheel in a wild virtual race to the finish... yours... or theirs.

    BEWARE. THIS IS WAY BEYOND WHAT YOU’D EXPECT.

    This race is so full of sound and fury, so graphic, so totally real, that you’ll squirm in your seat as you squeal around futuristic 3-0 cities in custom war wagons loaded with weapons. You’ll have so much fun so fast, it’ll make your head spin. Remember, your life depends on three things: speed, cunning and aggression. And you’re going to need them all.

    It’s impossible to avoid tricky scum like Hammerhead and King Kool as their gangs try to take you out. But if you knock them off first you can grab their guns and get going on the ride of your life. It’s do... or die.

    You haven’t seen anything like MEGARACE, because there’s never been anything like MEGARACE. Strap yourself into this brave new world of battle racing... and take it to the limit!

    WHEN YOU SEE IT, YOU’LL BARELY BELIEVE IT
