    My Summer Car Train Update 3.jpg
    My Summer Car has today received a small update - you can now enjoying crashing into a train...!

    Probably one of the most bizarre and enjoyable driving games available today for PC, My Summer Car has taken another step towards recreating the 90's Finnish countryside in painstaking detail with the inclusion of something big and heavy to run along the already existing rail network in the game. Ladies and gentlemen we now have ourselves a fully collideable train to enjoy!

    Although at this stage you can't use the train to carry our journeys or drive yourself, the new element of interaction in the game will run around the large Finnish game map itself and of course you guessed it, you can crash into it with your own cars or place things like a crate of beer on the line and watch it hurtle through the obstacle!

    The new train for My Summer Car follows on from a recent update released back on the 13th March and is a nice little free addition to the game. Whilst the new train doesn't allow any driving or travelling ability, it is thought that the developer is looking to include this option in a future update to the game.

    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.
