The following demo was created in early 2004 by Denaris Entertainment Software (founded by Manfred Trenz, creator of the Turrican series), and was at some point repurposed into the infamous Mario Kart XXL tech demo before being pitched to Nintendo of Europe.

R3D-Demo is a 3D racer consisting of a single repeating map. Before starting, the player is also able to choose between two pre-rendered cars, unlike Mario Kart XXL where you’re unable to select other characters.
