Patch v1.1 Released!



Hello community,

We’ve just patched Cranks and Goggles to version 1.1 in order to fix some of the issues that surfaced since our last update.

As you may guess, the major issue was the "crash" which has upset many of you. We've stripped down the code to the last bit to find the cause, we found it and fixed it. Meanwhile, Unity launched several updates and caused us a lot of trouble, we almost had to rebuild the game from scratch (It might have been easier actually).

Long story short, the game is now stable. It's still not an arcade but is much more playable with new and improved controls.

If you encounter any crash related issues while playing please e-mail us hello [at] playnative .com

We will soon announce online racing events. But before that, please come and join us on our discord channel, meet other pilots around the world.

Drive safe and enjoy the game!
