Pot Noodle Racer is a video game developed and published by Winston's Den Interactive. Clint Eastwood Ltd developed the Sega Megadrive version. It was released in Europe on January 25, 1995 and in USA on October 28, 1995. It was released for the SNES, Sega Megadrive, Playstation, and Sega Saturn. It was cancelled for the Game Boy and Game Gear due to system limitations. Despite being rated Kids To Adults by ESRB, it has words such as "ass" and "shit".

It recieved negative reviews because of heavy glitches and bad graphics. However, it was praised for good music. It also has a cult following.

DevelopmentEdit

Development began back in 1989. The working title was Race The Pot Noodle. It would be released for the Sega Megadrive, NES, and TurboGrafx-16. Whilst this was under development, they also started developing Pot Noodle Factory. However, due to hassle, they had to cancel one game. Race The Pot Noodle was cancelled.

Winston's Den Interactive regretted this decision. Winston Morrison wanted both games to be released but wanted the NES and TG-16 versions of RTPN cancelled and replaced with the SNES version. Winston's Den Interactive would produce the now-titled Pot Noodle Racer and LucasArts were hired to produce Pot Noodle Factory. LucasArts would give it an adventure twist. Pot Noodle Factory was now released in 1992. However, Pot Noodle Racer was still under development and Clint Fleetwood had been hired to create the Megadrive version. It was slated for a 1993 release. It had been delayed due to development problems. In 1994, Winston's Den Interactive had now decided to port it to the Playstation and the Sega Saturn. They also wanted to port it to the Game Boy and the Game Gear. It was not done due to technical limits. Winston's Den Interactive would develop the PS1 and SS ports, but with Clint Fleetwood producing the 3D graphics for the playable characters.

In December 1994 Winston's Den Interactive had now finished development of Pot Noodle Racer. They now had to design the box for it. At a last minute decision, they decided to add a time trial mode into the game. Because it was set for a January 1995 release, they had to rush it. The game now suffered from lots of glitches due to a failed attempt at pushing the limits of each console.
