What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Weekend Drive is in Early Access because as the developer I'm experimenting with game modes and I need feedback from my players on what they find fun so that I can get my formula right. My objective is to provide my players with a really fun experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I believe Weekend Drive will be in Early Access till about June 2021. My development style is slow and steady and I've been developing Weekend Drive since 2015. You can see that jacksepticeye's video of Weekend Drive is from late 2015 and has over 4 million views, but I could not make myself release the game, and ask players to pay for it, until I was happy that it was at least at a basic quality level. That time has finally come! I'll be relying on feedback from my players to help me make the game a more fun experience over time. The game could be in Early Access for a longer or a shorter period. A longer period could arise if I continue with my day job and say my players or I come up with some amazing ideas, then I'll work away to make them a reality and so that could cause the Early Access period to extend. A shorter period could arise if say the game became quite popular and so I would be able to leave my day job and reassign those 40 hours to game development! I could also then hire an artist to replace all of the currently purchased art and move to one single material to improve efficiency.”

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

“The full version of Weekend Drive will have many more game modes, enemies, allies, weapons, and vehicles for the player to experience. I would like to replace all of the purchased art assets if I could afford an artist and so enable me to utilise just a single material and achieve more efficient fracturing as well. My ambition is to make the city a lot more dynamic and interesting and I still have plenty to learn and experiment with in order to achieve that.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access build gives a clear indication of the FPS and vehicle mechanics and allows the player to experience two game modes; Final Survival and Long Road. Please see the store page description below for more detail.”

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

“Yes the pricing will be different. The Early Access version will start at half the price of the full version.”

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

“I currently have a Weekend Drive steam group where I've been taking feedback from my players. I also have a YouTube channel (Gamer To Game Developer) and an IndieDB page. Once I release the game I would hope to merge the Steam forums.”

About This Game

Welcome to Weekend Drive

Weekend Drive is all about being a fun and potentially challenging experience. The game is primarily a first person shooter and you can drive vehicles. In Weekend Drive the environment is completely destructible and you can pick up and throw items, or run over enemies with your vehicle, or crash into buildings and demolish them. I started development back in 2015 and slow and steady I've finally reached a point where I'm able to release Weekend Drive as an Early Access title. In late 2015 the game received a lot of publicity by jacksepticeye playing and enjoying it, but it was far from where I needed it to be for an Early Access release and so I never released it till now.

Thank you!

A big thank you to all my family, fans, customers, students, peers, and Youtubers. Your enthusiasm and positivity has helped me get this far.

Current Game Content

As of today there are two game modes, Final Survival and the Long Road. Final Survival is a battle mode where you must destroy all enemies and their spawners. You start with just a crowbar and you must earn credits to permanently unlock better vehicles (16 cars and trucks and 1 helicopter), weapons (10 ranged and melee weapons in total), and allies (2 at the moment). There are two powerful giant enemies that you must defeat, the giant zombie and the alien mothership. There are three groups of enemies with variations within (zombies, aliens, dinosaurs). With time I aim to add more enemies such as evil mercenaries, robots, super bad guy, and whatever else I come up with, and of course more weapons and vehicles. In the Long Road you have to get to the end of the road and get past all the enemy encounters and the meteorites! Also you can earn credits which you can use towards Final Survival.

Future Plans

As I continue to develop Weekend Drive I will add more fun game modes to make the game a richer and more fun experience. The game is currently not polished and there will definitely be some bugs. I really do need your constructive feedback to help me make the game more fun. My primary objective is to make a game that is pure fun! Of course I need to add more vehicles, weapons, allies, and enemies to add more variety to the game.

I also want to make a better Weekend City that is more interesting and more dynamic. Currently there are no other cars driving around on the roads and no friendly NPCs walking about who can talk to the player and congratulate the player. I feel this is one of the most lacking aspects of Weekend Drive right now. I have some ideas of how to implement the above but I still need to gain more programming knowledge to achieve my ambitions and also keep the game running at a fair speed.

I'm no 3D modeller (My strength is in code and project delivery) and so I've purchased almost all of the art assets (models) used in Weekend Drive, so saving me countless hours of dev time. If Weekend Drive has a reasonable following then it is my hope that in the future I can replace all of the art assets by hiring a skilled modeller and so make all the buildings, environment, vehicles, weapons and characters use a single material. I could make bespoke models fracture how I want them to and by using a single material I could improve the efficiency of the game. Right now I'm constrained to what I've purchased.

Are you interested in game development?

If you're interested in game development then please have a look at my title GTGD S3 which is here on steam. It is a complete tutorial series where I teach you how to make all the core systems that are present in Weekend Drive, and I've prepared it for beginners to game development. I use the Unity game engine and the C# programming language.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
