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

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?

“A tricky question! While we could give a date right now, it would almost definitely be wrong, longer than we predict we’d imagine! However, after a few months in Early Access the answer to this question will become a little clearer.”

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?

“Pre-Alpha. Its early days and a good time to adopt if you want to get involved with helping jalopy take form. You’ll have Germany and CSFR as your playground and a car to build, maintain and upgrade.”

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.”

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!
