European developer French Touch has released a QuickTime trailer of its forthcoming WaterRace game.

The game is close to release, though distribution has not been finalized. Ships and levels have been recently redesigned, as have 3D characters and the music. On the redesign, French Touch said: "We are not professional game-developers, and we are working in our free time on the game. In consequence, we learnt a lot during the first year of development, and we realized that the work was not as perfect as we would’ve liked."

WaterRace was chosen by 3dfx to show the capabilities of its Voodoo5 5500 graphics card during Macworld Expo, New York. It’s a fast-paced boat racing game featuring stunning visual-effects.
