    My Summer Car has been updated.

    Indie developer released My Summer Car has received another sizable update yesterday, adding a range of fixes and improvements to a game that continues to go from strength to strength.

    Holding something of a cult following with the niche car / lifestyle / mechanics simulation genre, and packed full of funny moments and features, My Summer Car continues to receive plenty of support and development as the title progresses through it's early life cycle on the Steam network.

    With a new build deployed just yesterday, the game has received plenty of attention as a number of outstanding issues have been rectified by the developers, as well as a few new features probably quite unique to this often hilarious game.

    You can check out the change log, and developer advice around the new build, below:

    Developer advice about the update
    The update needs still some work etc, but I want to warn everyone already about the SAVE incompatibilities you will face with the next update.

    Some items will be filled up and spawned back as a huge mess to Teimo's store or at home. This happens because there is save database change with the Teimo stuff.

    You can always delete your "items.txt" if you want to get rid of the mess, or then just bring all the stuff back to home again.

    And this is the list of the items that are affected by this:
    • Juice bottle
    • Beer case
    • Brake fluid
    • Motor oil
    • Coolant
    • Mosquito spray
    • Two Stroke fuel

    • Fixed issue with Block replacement being successful even when the engine was not disassembled

    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!
    • Support for steering wheel and shifter controllers
    • Much more!

    My Summer Car is available to purchase exclusively on Windows PC via the Steam Network right now!
