Car builder / driver launches fully after two years in Early Access.
In Jalopy you’ll navigate miles of tyre changing, fuel burning, carburettor 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.
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 customise 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.
Jalopy is available on Steam now, with the full version launching later today. On launch there will be a week long 40% discount on the full price of £10.99 / €14.99 / $14.99.
