Joy Ride Turbo has been released to the public! My rave review below.
I have finished the entire game and I am still playing it to set times against my friends. I’m a bit biased having worked on the game, but I think it’s a very fun quality product and I am quite proud of it. For those that don’t know Kinect has been completely ripped out of this version and we have added new tracks, game modes, the stunt parks are back, cars have different properties/tuning, 4player split screen local play, 8 player online play, new weapons, as well as all the weapons have been retuned to support competitive core racing play. See if you can beat my times in Time Trials (gamer tag malcolm360), we have a top 100 leaderboard for all game modes or you can sort by friends only. In a nutshell you could kind of describe us as Mario Kart HD, but with good car physics/enertia and depth to the driving, and cool looking cars, and good art, and resolution, and an exploration collection mode. You can buy the game on XBLA for 10 dollars/800 points, which is a great deal since there is over 2 years of work that was put into this game and you can easily get 5-10 hours of enjoyment out of the game as I did.

I was the art directer on this game and I also got to create the title screen image on this version. Art dump below of the team's great work.
