OpenGL API-based Amazing Curves Racing beta 1.02 public game server online

Amazing Curves Racing renders real-time tessellated curved surfaces using the OpenGL API and computes physics interaction directly on the curved surfaces. Rendered surfaces are smooth with no visible triangles. Driving on curved surfaces is very smooth; bumpiness is added using cubic displacement maps where needed. Polygon-physics discontinuities are not present. Network play and physics interaction is lag-free for typical internet connections and scales gracefully to higher pings (300ms and higher). A public game server has been set up for online beta testing. The game will run on any OpenGL API-based hardware, Pentium-M 1.7 or P4 2.8 class CPU, 512MB or higher recommended.
