Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The instant feedback from Steam players allows us to reshuffle our priorities during development to make an even better game. During the Early Access period the game will most certainly contain a selection of bugs, glitches, and issues that can impact a traditional game experience. If you do buy the game and come across something odd, please tell us in the forums.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are looking to release the full game towards the end of 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In Early Access you will be able to drive, explore and trade throughout Germany & the CSFR. Already, the player can make changes to their vehicle with millions of combinations available to affect vehicle performance. As we progress through Early Access we plan to let the player drive through 1990’s renditions of Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Turkey. Early Access will be an insight into the core mechanics of Jalopy and from here we plan to build around this core with feedback from the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game contains all final countries planned for the final game. Players can upgrade their car, purchase new components, scavenge for items and drive back to the starting area once they reach the final destination.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may increase with significant content updates. We will let everyone know if the price is expected to rise before it increases.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Once we get into Early Access we’re going to be looking at the most important features within the first week or two of release. From here we will create a development roadmap so that everyone can visualise where the game is heading and can get involved. Of course, do say hi to us in the Steam forums and let us know your thoughts on the game.”

Help us translate Jalopy

Hello everyone

Now that the uncle has returned to Jalopy, talking away and telling you his story. We felt it would be best to translate the game so more players are able to enjoy his ramblings and the narrative. Plus, we really would like to see what “OOOF!” looks like when translated to several other languages.

The community has been great in providing us with feedback and reporting bugs (Yes, we’re still on the case with some of those pesky buggers!) and we would like to continue the collaboration to help improve the game further. We’ve had several players offer to help us volunteer to translate the game into their language and we are at a stage where translation will make a lot of sense.

We’re looking for your help in translating Jalopy into as many languages as possible. We’ve handpicked 13 key languages but wish to add more in the future.

To sign up and help us translate Jalopy, please go to - https://poeditor.com/join/project/QOyDrEXOTu

During the sign-up process, you can pick the language you wish to translate to. English will be the default language translated from.

Once you have signed up, and have been accepted by one of our team, you can then begin translating. The site itself should run through a small tutorial to introduce you to the platform.

You can then change, edit and proof-read translations or even mark current translations to say they are not 100% correct.

once each language reaches an almost complete state, we will then start to implement the language into the game and look for testers to help check the language within the game itself.

We also plan to set up a specific forum within the discussion so that people can communicate with each other about issues or questions they may have.

We will be rewarding those who translate a large portion of the text with some exclusive goodies! There will be news on what these will be in the coming weeks or months.

If you have any questions about translating the game, please contact us at support@excalibur-publishing.com. We have also added a small FAQ to our discussions post which can be found here - http://steamcommunity.com/app/446020/discussions/0/1483235412200557493/


DUE TO OVERSUBSRIPTION WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT CONTRIBUTORS FOR THE FOLLOWING LANGUAGES
Portugues Brazilian

About This Game

***JALOPY IS AN EARLY ACCESS TITLE. THE GAME IS IN A CONSTANT STATE OF IMPROVEMENT AND IS NOT FINISHED. PURCHASING THE GAME NOW WILL HELP SUPPORT THE GAME AND WILL ALLOW US TO CONTINUE WORKING ON JALOPY TO REFINE, ADD MORE CONTENT, IMPROVE QUALITY AND IMPLEMENT REQUESTS FROM THE COMMUNITY***


Navigate miles and 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 carburettor will determine how your car performs on the open road.

The rise of capitalism brings an economical conundrum. Scavenge for scraps to make a small return of investment, or become a baron of the open road and smuggle contraband under the eyes of border patrols to make a sizable profit.

Developer Greg Pryjmachuk worked on the Formula 1 franchise from 2009 through to 2014. In late 2014, Greg began work on this new driving simulation featuring the fictional Laika 601 Deluxe car; reminiscent of the East German “Trabbie”, it will need much love and care to keep it going on this memorable road trip!
