Next Car Game, like all other Early Access titles, is incomplete. The game is missing features and contains "nasty bugs," Bugbear said. But releasing the game in this state is an exciting proposition, the developer said, because it allows for the studio to incorporate fan feedback.

The game's arrival on Steam Early Access comes after Bugbear canceled the title's initial Kickstarter campaign in November, after it gathered just $81,000 of its $350,000 target.

One of the most compelling components of Next Car Game is its "true-to-life" damage physics system, which allow vehicles to break down in real-time and with great detail. In addition to demolition derbies, Next Car Game will feature traditional track races.
