Happy Christmas and a New Year of 2019 everyone! We've been on Early Access now for little more than two years. It has been longer than what we expected, but that is because the game has seen tons additional content which weren't originally planned even ːsteamhappyː

Now it seems that during the next year we will come out of EA, and work for adding the missing content and features has started. Together with that it is time to start polish up the game and fix any glaring errors or other annoyances as much as possible. So, still no timelines but should be during the 2019.

We are glad you have enjoyed the game SO much, there is still work to do and with your help we can hopefully finalize the game as well as possible.

Sincerely, Amistech Games

Drive safely!
