Project History Edit
BallisticNG was started on the Wipeout fan forum WipeoutZone on April 2nd 2015. The original idea was for the game to be a fan made HD remake of the original three Wipeout games. However because of obvious legal issues involved with this, the project was instead turned into a fan game. For half a year the game went through basic development, implementing base gameplay and experimenting with physics. In 2016 two members of another Wipeout fan game, SlipstreamGX, joined development after SlipstreamGX had entered hiatus as the entire game started being rewritten. At this point BallisticNG was rewritten from scratch and built around a new track system that mimmiced the track system from the Playstation One Wipeout games based on new knowledge gained at the time, this is the version that the game is running on now.
The game was submitted to Steam Greenlight on April 11th 2016, it was then accepted and released on Steam for version 0.4 on May 30th 2016.
