Scorcher is a futuristic racing video game by Danish developer Zyrinx[1] for the PC and the Sega Saturn. The game focuses on special motorcycles that reach up to 450 km/h racing through dangerous tracks in a dystopian year 2021.

Trivia[edit]

  • The PC version included executables for both MS-DOS and Windows. The former would give a smoother framerate, while the latter allowed a higher resolution setting. [1]
