    My Summer Car Updated 3.jpg
    My Summer Car has received a new update that includes a number of fixes and improvements to the driving and "lifestyle" simulation.

    Forming part of a regular stream of updates for the PC exclusive simulation, the new build release deployed yesterday brings with it a series of fixes to some of the more noticeable issues that currently exist within the title. Highlights from the latest build include a modification to the way in which damage and wear occur on certain parts of your car build, tweaks to the storyline character interaction and various miscellaneous amendments to the base game software.

    It is thought the new update has come along a little quicker than initially expected in preparation for a potential Steam sale in the coming weeks.

    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
