I‘m Kiwi, a 35 year old Austrian Re-Volter.
I play Re-Volt since the demo-version, which was included in a german gaming magazine in summer 1999. I loved the demo that much, that I buyed the full version in autumn 1999, as soon I collected enough money. I still own the 20 year old original box:
In 2000 and 2001 I downloaded the first custom tracks from the internet, and I was flashed. When I remember correctly, one of the first ones were Holiday Camp
, The Gorge
In 2002 I attended a Re-Volt tournament in Austria, where I was able to reach place one, which I was very proud of. However, nowadays I am far away from being a top-player...
At this time I already experimented with customizing Re-Volt. I made my own Adeon for the above mentioned tourney, for example. This is an screenshot from 2002 - sadly the car didn‘t survived, and rest in peace somewhere in the digital nirvana.
In 2003 or 2004 I quit playing computer games in general, and concentrated on education, working, and family. After 15 years, in autumn 2017, I found out, that there is still an active Re-Volt community, after my son found Re-Volt in a store on his mobile phone. Since this time, I am part of this community, and it‘s now one of my biggest hobbies to do online racing with you all, or create custom content like skins, cars, and even tracks (which was already one of my dreams 20 years ago).
I hope we all can celebrate the 40 year anniversary in another 20 years!
