What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Although the planned features are completed, I believe an early access time period is necessary for adding new, requested features and perfecting the game with the help of user feedback. This will allow me to improve the game with the help of different perspectives.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is planned to leave Early Access in 2021.”

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

“- More cars
- Exterior customization for cars
- More themes
- More garage and car interior objects, which can be used for customizing garage and interior of the cars further
- Better optimization for increased performance”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Game is completely playable and the listed features are completed. There may be small bugs and small performance problems.”

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“User feedback is very important to me. I will add new features with the help of feedback. Existing features may be updated based on user feedback.

Community Hub on Steam will be used for all kinds of communication and interaction with the playerbase. I will actively read comments, ideas and suggestions. This game is actively being worked upon and the player feedback will be an important decision factor for new features.

Please don't hesitate to share your ideas and your feedback.”
