Hello all,

https://store.steampowered.com/app/446020/Jalopy/

It's time to embark on a motoring journey through the former Eastern Bloc, as Jalopy is currently half price! This offer will only last until 29th August, so make sure to jump in before then.



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.

Thanks,
The Jalopy Team

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the difficult journeys they ve taken to make their games. This time, Jalopy [official site].

A lot of people have made the correlation between game development being a janky mess and the car in the game being a janky mess, says Greg Pryjmachuk, the sole developer of Jalopy, a game about driving a Laika 601 Deluxe through the countries of the former Soviet bloc with your uncle. It does seem quite apt.

But he s definitely being a little hard on himself. Jalopy is a game he never intended to be as big as it s become, a project he started to escape from mainstream development. A couple of weeks back, after two years in Early Access, it finally reached its official launch, and with it has come a slew of negative reviews and angry forum threads born of a weight of expectation that Jalopy s rattling old chassis was never really designed to live up to.

The names of the community translators (who have gotten back to us based on an email survey we had sent out) has been added to the credits list. We are very lucky to have such a great community who have helped Jalopy release with support for the following languages.

  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Russian
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Turkish
  • Hungarian
  • Chinese (Simplified)

If you were one of the translators, you should be able to find your name in the translators credit screen which appears after the normal credits. Once again, we thank you all for your hard work in helping us to translate Jalopy into 18 languages. We have seen many players in territories outside of the US and UK enjoy the game and it could not have been done without you. Thank you!

Jalopy

It’s been a long, bumpy road, but Jalopy has finally completed its pilgrimage through the plains of Early Access, and has officially launched. It’s one of those games so distinct and original, it’s no surprise that it’s held our attention for years; a low-budget (and low-fi) road trip adventure from Germany, across eastern Europe on a course for Turkey. All the way, driving a crumbling junker of a not-Trabant through rain, snow and mud in service of your weird Uncle’s latest get-rich-quick scheme.

Hello everyone,

Today is Jalopy 1.0 Day! This marks the end of the development period for Jalopy as it becomes a final game. We would like to thank everyone who joined us on this journey from its initial Early Access release on 22nd April 2016. You have helped support us, offered valuable constructive feedback and it has been a pleasure to be a part of this community. Thank you to everyone involved in helping us get to this milestone.

You can read the full announcement to 1.0 below where we answer some of the Early Access Questions and detail areas where we were unable to deliver on particular areas of the game.

To celebrate the release of Jalopy, we are offering a 40% discount for launch week. Check out the Steam page below to purchase the game at this special launch discount:

New Languages Supported
The game is now available in 19 languages! This is thanks to the wonderful players and has been a massive task. We have been sending out emails to those who have assisted to let us know what they would like to be credited as.

Will detail more info on that, but if you have helped translate the game, you should have already received an email regarding what name you'd like to be credited as. If you have not received this, email us at support@excalibur-publishing.com and we will be in touch.

The Eastern European road trip Jalopy has almost completed its journey through early access, after nearly two years, and will properly launch next Wednesday, March 28th. You know, Jalopy, the game set in the 90s about driving your uncle from Germany to Turkey in a scrappy Trabant 601. Lots of things to pick up and fiddle with. That one. I enjoyed packing my car and pressing buttons in the old public prototype released way back when it was called Hac, then decided to wait until it was properly finished, so I’m keen to finally see how it’s ended up.
