After releasing in Early Access almost two years ago, the ground-breaking road trip game Jalopy will soon reach its destination. Throughout Early Access, Jalopy paved the way for an emergent new driving game genre. As Eurogamer puts it, Jalopy spearheaded the ‘rebellious rise of road trip games’.
Jalopy version 1.0 will release on March 28th , marking the end of the game’s Early Access period. To celebrate, Jalopy will be available on Steam at 40% off for a week beginning Wednesday March 28th.
This full release brings Jalopy to wide new audiences, with full translations for eighteen languages dropping on 28th March.
As of version 1.0, Jalopy will now be available in the following languages:
English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Turkish, Hungarian, Chinese (Simplified), Dutch, Norwegian, Finnish, Polish, Slovakian, Romanian, Croatian.
Since Jalopy’s Early Access launch in April 2016, the game has evolved meaningfully based on community feedback. The countries Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Turkey have all been added since Jalopy’s debut, massively expanding the world in which players embark on road trips.
A number of game-changing mechanics were added and refined throughout Early Access, including various tyre types to combat various driving conditions, a fully operating internal dashboard, the ability to customize the Jalopy with paint jobs and decals, a scrapyard to break into and salvage parts, and even the beloved Uncle, a unique character that fully narrates players’ journey through the former Eastern Bloc, with tales of his time there.
Navigate miles of tyre changing, fuel burning, carburetor busting, mud clattering terrain, through night and day, rain and shine. Adapt to whatever the procedurally generated world of Jalopy can throw at you.
Upgrade, maintain and care for your Laika 601 Deluxe motor vehicle. Keep close attention to everything from the state of your tyres, the condition of your engine and even the space in your trunk. Repair each aspect of your scrappy little car and install unique upgrades to deal with the changing world. Everything from cargo weight to the condition of your carburetor will determine how your car performs on the open road.
