His name on the forums is "Apex_ETX" and his position with the company is "Vehicle Dynamics Set Up"iRacing’s NASCAR champ, Richard Towler, has just signed on to work directly with Eutechnyx on the upcoming NASCAR The Game 2011.
While on one hand his joining the team is a bit late, Towler’s “initial work includes finalizing the car set-ups, handling and fun-factor.”
A lot of titles bring on additional workers with real know-how to fine-tune games. While Towler isn’t a professional NASCAR driver, he did (virtually) beat out Dale Earnhardt, Jr. for his title.
Eutechnyx CEO Brian Jobling says that by having Towler work for the company full-time, he can “guarantee a realistic racing game architecture and use his vast experience of racing games to ensure appeal for the casual player too.”
Towler’s own words on the situation are: “I’m delighted to join a development team with such a strong pedigree in the racing genre. As a gamer myself, it feels great to be able influence the final polish and to help tune this game to make sure it is the best and most fun NASCAR ever created. Plus, I’m now a key part of the design team for all Eutechnyx games moving forward.”
