Screw Racing, This Driving Game Is About Getting Stuck In The Mud

One of the best things about driving games on the PC is that they're not all about racing sports cars. There's stuff like Euro Truck Simulator. And now this, Spintires, which is basically a game about trying to keep trucks on the road on some of the world's worst roads.

It's a hardcore all-terrain simulation, tasking the player with performing seemingly mundane tasks like navigation and...driving on a road, but which become tough thanks to things like weather, lighting and, most important of all, a ridiculously realistic driving model.

The developers are currently looking to fund completion of the game on Kickstarter, but you can try it out now with a downloadable demo.

    Looks like a brilliant concept, though I can't say if it has already been done. I can see applications beyond entertainment for this such as Dakar simulation for potential contestants?

    Automatically wins E3 without even being involved.

    You know what - I'd love to see a vehicle driving model like that in Battlefield 4.

    Screw the shinier looking graphics, use the power of the Frostbite 2 engine to provide a bit more realism into the game.

      Agreed. They could really stand to go back to the drawing board and become less arcadey with the vehicles couldn't they?
