    .......................
    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 various 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 orderer 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 events to participate in
    • Permanent death
    • 90's Finnish summer!
    • Support for steering wheel and shifter controllers
    • Much, much more!

    Check out the My Summer Car RaceDepartment sub forum for more discussions and news regarding this hillarious title.

    Loving the sound system install on some top class B&Q fibreboard. Awesome! :laugh:

    EDIT: Something's just occurred to me, surely this must be a prime candidate for a VR version of this game? The beer drinking alone would be worth the extra development! ;):D

    Really looking forward to this! From having seen an earlier demo video a year or two ago, I can already see some new features in the trailer and if he can manage to release the game in the sub 20 Euro price range I can see this becoming a fun distraction and drinking game to enjoy with friends!

    Yeah "Permanent death" should be lottsa fun. Or rather not. :D

    Btw, is that Kimi's voice-over ? :D

    Naah.. it's probably just a Hakkinen.

    edit:
    You won't believe this, but I'll say it anyway... :p
    during the trailer, with drinking beer and stuff.. I was thinking "oh you only need to be able to take a p*ss now to have everything in this crazy game" and ...there it is, there it is - right on the end of the video !?! Unbelieveable !!! Guess I have the same (dirty) imagination as this game creators. Maybe I even have some Finish roots who knows. :cool:

    The trailer voiceover is the gamedeveloper's voice.
    This games world is not very far from our real world here in Finland! :D

    It is going to be funny as h... To play this being a Finnish man and knowing this countryside up here :p

    It has the worst and most clunky and broken interface I've ever used in my life.:thumbsdown:
    You can have way more fun in Car Mechanic Simulator.
