Gaming Console Possibilities?
Have the developers of Hydrosim prospected any possibilities with a disk version of Hydrosim for any of the gaming console game producers?
I have always dreamed of having a realistic real unlimited hydroplane game on a console. Now the technology is there to make a authentic realistic “fly that boat across the water!” hydroplane racing game. I have a contact for one of the major game developers. What would be the possibility to get the ball rolling on this thought?
@fouga60 This game is essentially just my hobby, I don't have the time or resources to develop a console game.

@fouga60 The potential commercial audience for a realistic hydroplane sim is very small, so it's not worth the investment for a major studio. They would have to make it very "gamey" with battles and powerups and gimmicks. Look at Hydro Thunder as an example.
I disagree. First of all you can’t even compare Hydro Thunder with Hydrosim.
IMO it think it would appeal and introduce a fresh new racing sim to a lot of different race enthusiasts.
I grew up in the Tri-Cities and around the hydroplanes. It was something that everyone in that area and from all around the Northwest look forward too every year. And there is a variety of other courses through hydroplane history that could be utilized. Tri-Cities is just one location. And the potential hull DLC throughout history would be amazing. With that said and not to kill a dead horse, this genre of racing gets into people’s blood fast and becomes almost like a new pass time.
It’s NASCAR on water with a completely different racing dynamic that racing enthusiasts would embrace.
Maybe just a pipe dream, but I have a friend that works for a major game developer. He has stated that their development department is always looking for new game ideas.
Respect to the Hydrosim developers in what they have accomplished with this sim.
Upmost respect to this sport. No disrespect intended in this post, just passionate about hydroplane racing and racing in general. Cheers
