I know that a lot of you will be picking up Skyrim on November 11, but Nitronic Rush, a free game coming out for PC on the same day, also deserves your attention. The students at DigiPen Institute of Technology who are creating the title call it a throwback to the arcade racers of the '90s. Personally, I see a lot of San Francisco Rush 2049, which excites me to no end.

Also, games developed by DigiPen students have proven to be important before. Don't forget about the time Valve hired the institute's alumni who made Narbacular Drop, the precursor to Portal, to help them make their praised puzzler. We might be looking at the next big thing. Anyway, take a look at the trailer, and I think you'll share my excitement for this one.
