Amistech Games have just released a sizeable new update to their quirky driving simulator My Summer Car. Released towards the end of 2016, My Summer Car is a fantastically strange independently developed driving and life simulation for Windows PC. Designed to offer players more than just simply the opportunity to drive and build your own car, My Summer Car is cram packed full of amusing features as it attempts to simulate a Nordic summer experience as you build your own first car, go out and buy spare parts to create your masterpiece, drink beer and get into trouble with the local law enforcement and pretty much everything in between! The game is, without doubt, one of the hidden jewels from last year as it offers up a unique experience quite unlike anything similar in the gaming marketplace at present. In the February 6th update, Amistech have added quite a few fixes and enhancements to the title, including the addition of several useable assets as varied as a new sauna and the ability to catch a bus as right the way through to even allowing the player to buy a coffee to reduce fatigue! Alongside the new playable content, the February 2017 release also addresses a number of outstanding issues within the game and adds a few new pieces of functionality.

About The Game My Summer Car is the ultimate car owning, building, fixing, tuning, maintenance AND permadeath life survival simulator. You start the game with hundreds of loose parts and assemble both car and engine. Not only you need to maintain your car, but yourself as well. Sausages, beer and sleeping will do just fine. If everything goes well, you have a working car which you can use for various 1990's Finnish countryside summer activities. Basically doing stupid things under influence of alcohol. After you have gathered extra money from various random jobs, you can start to tune and upgrade the car with parts ordered via snail mail. You can turn the car into a obnoxious bass-boom disco machine.... or into a rally car to participate rally competitions... or just fix it into perfect factory condition. Of course car also needs to pass the inspection or you might get into trouble with police. Not only you have access to one car, but also several other cars and vehicles which you can use. (Mostly useful to get groceries and for towing the project car from some ditch, again). Warning, this game is not for fainted heart. Severe car fever is required to play this properly due to it's autistic approach on car building. Full car assembly with over hundred parts Detailed driving and engine simulation Various other vehicles, cars and boat to use and drive Dozens of kilometers worth of dirt and paved roads with AI traffic Random paying jobs to cover food, beverage and fuel expenses Rally event to participate in Permanent death Sauna bathing 90's Finnish summer!
