The Next Penelope


  • Set in a futuristic Odyssey, "The Next Penelope" is a fast paced action racing game with loud colors, an original story and a challenging risk-reward system.
  • If you've played a MicroMachines game, you'll feel right at home with the controls! (An alternative control scheme is available for newcomers as well.)
  • Weapons can be mixed and used at any time, but all these abilities cost vital energy, so the player is very powerful and close to death at the same time!
  • As Penelope is looking for Ulysses through the galaxy, the player is free to explore the planets in any order. Each world features unique situations, races, even bosses, and new permanent abilities to enhance Penelope's spaceship.
  • First released as an early access, The Next Penelope has known 6 months of additional development with the help of the community, and has now new features such as local multiplayer (up to 4 friends on the same keyboard!), more solo content, new languages and options ...

  • The Next Penelope is a blast to play on PC, and will probably be a massive hit at parties when it arrives on Wii U later this year. It's a shame more old-school racers aren't around, but with games like this and 90s Arcade Racer, the scene is seeing a revival that brings a huge smile to my face.

  • A showcase of what can be achieved if you have the talent and creativity to take a chance.

  • The Next Penelope is addictive and original, one of those games you just can't stop playing. An online mode would have made it even better, but it still is a great choice.

  • A decent collection of racing-themed puzzles for those who prefer really hardcore arcade games.
