TrackMania is arcade racing game developed by the French team Nadeo, first released for Windows in 2003.
Game includes stunting with cars, track-building, elements from puzzle games, as well as elements testing the players' dexterity. Instead of following the usual trend of choosing a set car and track for playing in the game, the TrackMania games allow the player to create their own tracks using a simple "Block" process in the spirit of the 1985 game Racing Destruction Set and the 1990 Bröderbund release, Stunts.
In contrast with most other racing games, the TrackMania series lets the player race a track as many times as he/she wants, until time runs out. He/she can choose to respawn at any time possible, due to landing upside down, going off the track, or even just because the start did not go optimally. Although in multiplayer games multiple cars race on the same track, they cannot actually collide or otherwise influence each other.
