Behind The Scenes: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Creative Director

We take a lap with Creative Director and Beenox Co-Studio Head Thomas Wilson to speed through some full-throttle Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled questions! Available On: Switch, PS4, Xbox One

KZ: When did you first fall in love with Crash Team Racing?

TW: I started in the game industry 20 years ago and my favourite game was Crash Team Racing!

KZ: Wow. Now you get to make a Crash reboot!

TW: You can’t imagine the nostalgia kicking in as I’m booting up my PS1 in my office and playing Crash Team Racing again.

KZ: How much of the orig PS1 game did you play as ‘research’?

TW: It’s more having fun playing the game that you love so much than actual research.

KZ: And how much time was that?

TW: A great deal of time. We worked closely with the designers to recreate the controls as they were in the original game.

KZ: How tricky is it to nail kart controls?

TW: That’s the number one challenge for a remaster like Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. It was definitely the trickiest part.

KZ: Who’s your fave racer?

TW: Nitrous Oxide because he’s fully playable, which wasn’t the case in the original Crash Team Racing, and because it’s good to be bad. Racing as a villain is fun.

KZ: How do you make boss fights in a racing game?

TW: A boss fight is pretty much a little unfair race. The boss is pretty smart, but at the same time he’s kind of a cheat.
