Hey Kids, Are You Ready for StarCraftKart?

The StarCraft II map editor hasn't even been out for a week yet, and one enterprising fan has already used it to create a game in an entirely different genre.

We've known since last year's BlizzCon that the StarCraft II Galaxy Editor was a powerful little tool - some of the folks at Blizzard had developed a third-person shooter using just the regular tools in the editor in their spare time. The Galaxy Editor was released to the beta-testing masses last week, and we're already seeing some interesting stuff out of it - like, for instance, this StarCraft Wacky Races map.

Yes, it's incredibly rudimentary, with nothing more to the concept other than "drive around a track." There are no banana peels or red shells to be fired at your foes. But the fact that someone slapped together a kart racer in just a day - and by the looks of it, it's controlled with the keyboard for the most part - is actually pretty impressive.

I wonder what this will look like after two weeks. Maybe they'll have starmen.

Would be MUCH more impressive if it wasn't for the fact blizzard made a Warcraft III Mario Kart on Frozen Throne.

Calumon: Still kinda cool huh?

This is why I love Blizzard.Good games with equally good editors

When the race started, I was hoping for an, "and there they go, on the way-out Wacky Races!"

This has officially sold me on the game. Make it happen, Blizzard!

I'm just wondering one thing...

"Why?"

This shows great promose for the user made game settings and maps.

"Why?"

Because. It's. Awesome. Or because. They. Can.

Both answers work pretty well. I'm pretty interested in the Third Person Shooter too, now. I never got my Starcraft : Ghost, dammit!

I call hax on that ultralisk, he's way to big and blocks the road.

Sadly the ultralisk would just slice anyone who would pass him.

Love how so many people are remaking lots of maps from Wc3 into SC2. I'm remaking Vampirism. :P

I'm waiting for them to release a map editor for BC2 for this very reason.

What? Are you telling me that C4, quadbikes and a racetrack doesn't sound totally freakin' awesome to you?

Huh? Whatever happened to "slow and steady wins the race?" Are you telling me that the tortoise was lying?! O_o

Why not?

They did that map with warcraft 3 to, though the warcraft 3 version was alot deeper with many powerups and great set of characters to play :D They also did snake and a rudimentary wow, with ragebars and a ghosthealer.
With they i mean blizzard :)

"Dick Dastardly stops to cheat again..."

Lol looks cool, even though I don't play the game. XD

I very much appreciate the use of the Beetle Race music from Super Mario RPG. Just goes to show the kind of simple brilliance that can be found on the soundtracks of old cartridges.

Why not?

What would you do for a Klondike Bar?

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Still, I have full faith the galaxy editor can do much more than the Warcraft 3 World editor could, but this hasn't shown us anything War3 didn't do already.

Edit: Go Thor, you can do it!!!

b a d a s s!

Onyx Oblivion:

Why not? Zergling Cart is win. :)

hehe, the creativity of some people will never seize to amaze me.

Nice work!

Poor Thor... he didn't even have a chance :(

Wow! I cant imagine this when it's officially out to the public

Imagine SC2 in a FPS style. or FPS RPG!!

*drools*

Would love to see that FPS video mentioned by the way.

That's just amazing. The Super Mario RPG music makes it even better.

Melon racer on gmod is more fun

Yay! That was a cool touch. This actually looks mad fun.

well that's pretty awesome for being slapped in a day, I can't wait to see what stuff that people will make (and what I will make myself!)

That's crazy. Crazy AWESOME!

For 24 hours work, impressive.

I was pretty impressed with that... Granted I think this person has way too much free time...

Very impressive for one day's work.

That was created in just one day? Whoever created that was quite epic.

Do the units in SC2 animate that bad when playing normally? >.< Still, pretty impressive.

That's just pure epic win, that's why I love Blizzard's editors, powerful nifty tools.

It's Version 1, so I suppose they will be adding alot of things?

I certainly hope so, keep us posted!

I haven't tried Starcraft 2 yet, but if the editors are as good as Warcraft 3's then I'd say this kind of thing will become commonplace.
