    Spin Tires

    The offroad truckdriving thrills of Tricky Truck combined with graphics and mud-physics which surpass even Off-Road Drive combined with a slightly wonky camera. You know what, just watch the video.

    Have they made a definitive announcement on whether or not there will be cockpits? I loved the tech demo, way more than Offroad Drive, but I find driving from a weird 3rd-person angle to be awkward.

    Rift would likely be incredible for a "parked bum" scenario like this (because let's face it, the motion control companion technology is lagging behind the HMDs ATM). SO looking forward to the consumer version, keen to see reviews of DK2 in August!

    What I want:- Star Citizen/Elite Dangerous plus Rift + a HOTAS stick set-up... OHHH YEAAHHHH! (Look at this beast of a stick! I plan to buy fo sho. Maybe some rudder pedals too.)

    A hydraulic sim-cockpit would probably be more impressive than an OR setup for this imo.

    IR head tracking would be a good alternative, since any HMD will probably have lower quality panels compared to a lot of enthusiast monitors.

    No cockpits. That's like the number one request from the fans though, so either they're working on it or they just can't figure out how to make it work.

    Henke, will this be a release version or just Early Access?

    It's a full release, as far as I know.

    I just watched your old video again, and I'm still more enthused about the idea of charging around in the smallest vehicle than any of the bigger ones; but that latest trailer is pretty awesome regardless.

    That's a shame, but I'm glad to hear there's a vocal demand for it. This won't seriously be on my radar until then (if I had to sacrifice one of the two views in any driving game, the external view would get the boot every time), but on the plus side I should have a pretty good idea as to whether it's going to be worth the money if/when they do get around to adding it.

    Downloading noooooow! Barely a 500MB installation! In 2014! That's barely enough for a TXT file these days! How will they fit all those BIG TRUCKS in there? Oh no. OH NO MAYBE THE TRUCKS ARE GONNA BE TINY! MAYBE SO TINY I WONT EVEN BE ABLE TO FIT INSIDE THEM! Serious buyers remorse over here right now. Ok henke, calm down, it's downloaded, deep breath aaaaaand... here we go.

    edit: OK! Ok so uh... just played my first session of the game. The "game" part of it is very barebones. The game gives you a truck and dumps you in the wilderness. To the south there is an Objective, so I started driving towards it. On my way there I discovered the UAZ, getting close to it unlocked it, so I switched over to that one and drove around a bit and ended up getting stuck between a spruce and a hard place. Then I switched back to my other truck and headed over to the UAZ with the intent of pushing it free, but I ended up getting stuck between another spruce and a pine nearby. Since I'm playing on Hardcore there is no magical "vehicle recovery" button to get me out of situations like this. The only way of getting a truck unstuck is by getting in another truck(preferably one with a winch) and driving over to the other truck and pulling it loose. And since I'm all outta trucks I guess that's Game Over, man!

    I wish I cared a bit more about this. It does look quite remarkable in a lot of ways. But I couldn't really I justify it.
    I speak as someone who gets the weird sense of achievement from the Sisyphean task of skidding slowly up to the top of a mountain in Rigs of Rods. But there I can have the perverse joy of smashing my truck to smithereens on the way down.

    Hah. I just got a Steam achievement called "Sisyphus" for accidentally driving 300 meters with the parking brake on!

    Probably some things yeah. Haven't figured out what yet and the game ain't telling me shit. This is the Dark Souls of trucking games, you see.
