Small amount of refurbished Sturmwind “Windstärke 12″ on sale again

Written by redspotgames at 10. September 2013

You’ll surely be surprised how time flies: The initial release of Sturmwind for Sega Dreamcast has been taken place almost 5 months ago. To the satisfaction of Duranik and redspotgames, both the majority of customers and press reaction was positive.
Yet there is is something that Dreamcast fans would admire: We’re speaking about those who weren’t able to acquire Sturmwind’s Limited Edition and desperately want to call one copy their own.

While the basic version of Sturmwind is still available, the Limited Edition “Windstärke 12″ has been sold out shortly after its launch in April 2013. It offered:

* Sturmwind Game
* Sturmwind Soundtrack: “The Final Score”
* Full Color Sturmwind 3D Printed Model 1:72
* Full Color Tactical Guide Booklet

All of that comes packaged in a special magnet box.

Yet, the possibility of calling this Limited Edition your own is here again for short time only: A small amount of refurbished Sturmwind “Windstärke 12″ are on sale again!

But this is not a reproduction. As communicated before its release, there won’t be a reproduction at all.
Hereby we’re speaking about returned “Windstärke 12″ units that have seen a maintenance: Minor damages that were repaired. All of these units are like new. No damaged is left on these units and comes in the original condition.

These Sturmwind “Windstärke 12″ Limited Editions are available for the original price of 69,95 Euro at the redspotgames online shop. But again: Limited time offer only!

Production complications: Sturmwind is about to be delayed

Written by redspotgames at 19. December 2011

Production complications: Sturmwind is about to be delayed

In spite of best planing, the release of Sturmwind has to be postponed: Our long-term CD-ROM manufacturer surprisingly had to declare bankruptcy after 19 years in business. From 40 employees only a few remained. Therefore this resulted in the situation that the scheduled delivery date for Sturmwind could not be met in the end.

The only possibility has been to relocate the production – to avoid further delays of the bankrupt facility. Nevertheless items like the spaceship models have been completely manufactured already. Our new partner is one of the largest videogame CD / DVD press plants in Europe with over 50 years of experience in medium production. In the meanwhile we already placed our production order for Sturmwind.

The release date is set to TBA (“to be announced”) consequently.

Details are currently clarified between redspotgames, Duranik and the new facility. Also we are arranging material for another announcement with more exact information within December, which will be after Christmas however. All orders in the redspotgames online shop will remain valid.

German / Deutsch
Produktions-Komplikationen: Sturmwind steht Verschiebung bevor

Trotz bester Planung muss die Veröffentlichung von Sturmwind verschoben werden: Unser langjähriger CD-ROM-Produzent – mit dem wir bereits Wind and Water: Puzzle Battles und Rush Rush Rally Racing realisiert haben – musste nach 19 Jahren Betrieb plötzlich und überraschend Konkurs anmelden. Aus den einst 40 Mitarbeitern blieben nur noch eine Hand voll übrig. Daraus ergab sich letzte Woche die Situation, dass der Liefertermin für Sturmwind schlussendlich nicht mehr einhalten werden konnte.

Die einzige Möglichkeit bestand darin – um weitere Verschiebungen des in Konkurs befindlichen Presswerks zu vermeiden – nun die Produktion zu verlagern. Einige Teile wie die Raumschiffmodelle sind bereits komplett hergestellt. Unser neuer Partner ist eines der größten Videospiele-Presswerke Europas mit über 50 Jahren Erfahrung in der Datenträgerproduktion. In der Zwischenzeit haben wir diesem bereits den Auftrag für Sturmwind erteilt.

Der Veröffentlichungstermin ist somit auf TBA (“to be announced”) gesetzt.

Details werden gerade zwischen redspotgames, Duranik und dem neuen Presswerk abgeklärt. Auch bereiten wir gerade Material für eine weitere Ankündigung genauerer Informationen im Dezember vor, welche jedoch erst nach Weihnachten erscheinen wird. Alle Bestellungen im redspotgames online shop behalten ihre Gültigkeit.

Written by redspotgames at 29. August 2011

The 16 year old Finn from Kangasala is one of 13 participants at this year‘s Formula BMW Talent Cup, a motorsport series that focus on the education and training of race drivers who come from karting and are between 13 and 18 years. Other motorsport stars like Sebastian Vettel, Bruno Senna or Sébastien Buemi once attended at the Formula BMW series and made their first large steps in professional racing here. The series also provides mental and fitness training by professionals who already trained Formula 1 drivers like Lewis Hamilton or even Olympia Gold Metal winners in different disciplines.

The „fan sponsoring“ is limited to the final event of Oschersleben (Germany) on September 15th to 18th, where they drive in the supporting program of the DTM („Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters“). The race will be streamed live on www.formula-bmw.com and about 60.000 fans are awaited for this event. HAL Racing will not charge 10.000 EUR, not 1.000 EUR, but only 50 EUR per text! Professional motorsport sponsoring has never been so easy and inexpensive! And the best: Every 10th order will get their text for absolutely free!

Since Lassi Halminen became one of the best Formula BMW Talent Cup drivers in this season, he has a realistic chance to win both the race in Oschersleben and a sponsored year in the Formula 3 ATS cup in 2012 as the prize of his eventually success here.

If you are interested or need further details, directly contact redspotgames at sponsoring@redspotgames.com – you can pay via both, PayPal or on an European Bank account (transfer within Europe with no extra charge). Please be aware that other names will appear on this area as well. redspotgames will not gain any financial profit out of this „fan sponsoring“ fee.

redspotgames already sponsors Lassi Halminen since the early 2011 Formula BMW Talent Cup season. As a hardcore videogame fan, Lassi already got his hands on Rush Rush Rally Racing for Nintendo WiiWare, which is about to be released very soon.

Lassi Halminen strengthening his position among top drivers in his class at Portimão, Portugal

Written by redspotgames at 29. August 2011

Lassi Halminen succeeded very well in the latest Formula BMW Talent Cup racing event in Portimão, Portugal on August 26th to 28th 2011 on the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve. The redspotgames sponsored race driver was fastest in free practice session on Friday despite of his flu symptoms. He promised redspotgames to take some days off to recover, to drink hot chocolate milk, stay in bed and play some Rush Rush Rally Racing for Nintendo WiiWare. But first they talked to Lassi about his personal summary of his racing weekend.

In qualifying sessions on Saturday Lassi continued his strong performance. In qualifying 1 from which two fastest laps were considered Lassi finalized third and fourth. Something about the tightness of the competition tells the fact that Lassi lost the second position only by 0.004 seconds, and to the pole position the time difference was only 0.111 seconds.

In qualifying 2 Lassi got some extra heartbeat when the red flag had stopped the qualifying and the cars were getting back on the track: there proved to be a severe problem in the throttle. After couple of minutes of hard work by his mechanics, he eventually was sent back to the track only few minutes before the end of qualifying 2.

„I was told that I will have chance for two laps, and I will have to be fast even on the first lap out to get chance. So I knew I had this only shot“ Lassi commented the qualifying. He achieved two fantastic laps which brought him to position two on both of his laps.

Lassi clarified the situation after qualifying. „I knew I needed two fast laps so I could not push too hard on the first fast lap, but I think it went quite well. When I left to the second fast lap I had only 7 seconds time left, so it was close call“

In heats (a.k.a. stints under race condition) Lassi demonstrated fantastic driving skills again, which further strengthened his position among top drivers in Talent Cup.

„Heat 1, I’ve got pretty poor start, and then I couldn‘t get an optimal line to the corner 1 and few opponents managed to overtake me in there. So I finalized as fifth“ the 16 year old Finn commented. „Then in heat 2 I had pretty cool start, and managed to overtake in the first corner and I reached third position. Then I started to seek for a place to overtake the car in front of me. However, already on lap 2 another car hit hard from back to my right rear tire. I span and in the incident the tire and breaks damaged, so I was forced to withdraw. The opponent who hit my car got a penalty of 5 starting grid positions in the next heat“

The third heat brought a phantastic start „and I managed to get the leading position in corner 1. However after a while the opponent who left from the pole managed to overtake me again“ He was driving as second, as bit later, another incident in corner 2 made him span out unfortunately.

Lassi was pretty close to a victory in the forth heat! „The start was ok, the race was ok, I drove the fastest lap time and I was pretty close to win, resulting as second. At finishing line the difference was only 0.38 second!“ he commented.

„In heat 5 I had to start from position 7 due to some bad luck in two of the previous heats. I had very nice start, I managed to get already to fourth position in the first corner, but then it came a bit too tight and I got hit and dropped to the eight position. It took quite many laps to rush-rush-race back to the fourth position which was my result at the end“

Lassi himself was satisfied in his performance. He knows that his speed is sufficient for winning, but also luck is needed. He was also fond of the Portimão track. „This is very nice and challenging track to drive, blind corners, lots of hills up and down. A great fun for me!“

But now it‘s time to recover – the great final race in Oschersleben as supporting act for the DTM („Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters“) is about to come on September 15th to 18th 2011! redspotgames will keep you informed about Lassi‘s race there.

Lassi Halminen is sponsored by redspotgames and is supporing the development of the upcoming 2D racing game „Rush Rush Rally Racing“ for Nintendo WiiWare.

Lassi Halminen trained in Triple WTCC champion Andy Priaulx’ racing simulator in Silverstone

Written by redspotgames at 21. August 2011

As part of the training program by the Formula BMW Talent Cup, redspotgames sponsored race driver Lassi Halminen met the Triple WTCC champion Andy Priaulx this weekend in Silverstone. But it wasn‘t just a meet and greet for fun, but a serious test of his fitness and racing talent indeed.

British race driver Andy Priaulx – who will start for BMW in the DTM in 2012 – has established a training facility called iZone Driver Performance at England‘s prestigious Silverstone Circuit. It is aimed at helping racing drivers become world class racers with an innovative simulator. It offers three HD projectors, 5 axis of motion, competition hydraulic brakes with 4-pot callipers, eye tracker and a data analysis station, amongst others.

Lassi was fascinated by these digital training sessions. „I learnt an incredible range of strategies that will be really helpful in the future,“ said the 16 year old Finn after the event. „It wasn‘t as difficult as Rush Rush Rally Racing at all“

The next events will be Portimão, Portugal (26th to 28th August) and the grand finale in Oschersleben, Germany (15th to 18th August) in the supporting program of the DTM („Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters“).

Lassi Halminen presents „RRRR“ cap and free poster – results of Monteblanco revealed

Written by redspotgames at 9. August 2011

Event number 7 of the Formula BMW Talent Cup. It has been a hard and very hot weekend at the Monteblanco circuit in southern Spain. 40 degrees Celsius in the shadow without any clouds in sight hasn‘t been an exception but the daily routine. The asphalt even hit 68 degrees!

Still redspotgames sponsored driver Lassi Halminen from Finland kept cool and delivered some pretty decent results in both the Qualifying and „Heat“ sessions (a.k.a. the 4 short races).

After placing 2nd and 5th in the Qualifying session on Saturday, he started from these grid positions in heat 1 and 3. For heat 2 and 4, the first 6 drivers from the previous heats started in the reversed order to mix the grid up.

Even due to these reguations he managed to compete with the best drivers, placed 3rd, 4th twice and 6th in the last heat. This marks a good result compared to his starting positions and the hard battle for places with a few car contacts by others.

„Qualifying 1 was very good for me and I didn‘t need to drive more than one fast lap and I was second“, Lassi Halminen reported. „Qualifying 2 wasn‘t that good and I missed the best laps because of traffic and I was 5th. Heat 1 was quite good but I got overtaken on lap 2 in turn 6 so I finished 3rd. Heat 2 I finalized as 5th [4th after a penalty for another driver] and I had couple of very good and tight fights. Heat three I had even more hard fights and eventually I was able to rise from 5th to 4th and 3rd place wasn‘t far, just one more lap…“, he said with a big grin. „Heat 4 in the beginning of the heat I got stuck and dropped from 3rd to 6th. My tires were not in perfect shape any longer so the overtaking was very difficult, but all in all the whole weekend was quite good. One podium, and lot of more racing experience.“

In his video message from Monteblanco, Lassi Halminen also announced a new „Rush Rush Rally Racing for WiiWare“ poster which will be gave away for free to every order in the redspotgames online shop (www.redspotgames.com/shop) from now on. Besides, the 15-year-old was also very happy to present his first merchandise article with the official „Rush Rush Rally Racing“ cap he is wearing at each event. The quality cap by Flexfit is available at the redspotgames online shop for 50,00 EUR (US$ 72.00 / GBP 44,00). „To be honest it looks much better than the common caps around, since it‘s more stylish and uses a modern design with flexible spandex. It‘s very fashionable and I also wear in my spare time“ he comments. By the way: Every 25th order at the redspotgames online shop will even get it for free!

The video has been uploaded to redspotgames‘ YouTube account and can be watched at www.youtube.com/user/redspotgames

The next station of the Formula BMW Talent Cup will be a training from 19th to 21st August 2011 in prestigious Silverstone, England. Here the participants will drive in a racing simulator (it can‘t get any harder than „Rush Rush Rally Racing“, can it?), guided by former WTCC and future DTM driver Andy Priaulx.

Furthermore, the race events in Portimão, Portugal (26th to 28th August) and the grand finale in Oschersleben, Germany (15th to 18th August) in the supporting program of the DTM („Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters“) will be the next steps.
