Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 coming in April

1 min read


When I read about Car Mechanic Simulator last year, I made snide, derisive comments about the game being a hit in Springs, tailored as it is to folk on the far East Rand. A game about fixing up cars, and nothing else? Who on earth would enjoy that sort of thing? The joke’s on me, obviously – as the game was quite a hit, and is getting a sequel.

According to its developer, Polish indies Red Dot Studios, Car Simulator 2015 is coming out next month. And it’s happening because of crowdfunding.

Red Dot and publisher PlayWay raised the necessary money through Kickstarter earlier this year – bagging just under $23, 000.

In Car Mechanic Simulator, you’ll play as a mechanic, and your job will be to buy cars, fix ‘em up, and sell ‘em off. You’ll also repair cars for clients, building your repair service and expanding your business along the way. There are 16 base models of cars for you to tinker with, all manner of tools and even dyno-tuning you can perform.

You can also do visual tuning, fiddling around with the vehicle’s detailing, bumper, lights et al. There’s also a handy-0dandy photo mode that allows you to do before and after looks at your digital vehicles.

Why does it even exist? Apparently Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 sold through 4 million copies – which of course brings up the question of why on earth this sequel needed to be Kickstarted in the first place.

    As one of the few unfortunate people to have been to Poland and Benoni I don’t think you were off at all…

    Poland is Benoni, just with more depressing buildings and sexier women

      Poland is basically the Mexico of Europe.

      Soviet-era buildings – they make our Apartheid-era government buildings look like works of art.

    This game reminds me a bit of Street Rod, that old game where you beefed up ur hotrod and eventually had to drag race with the King…. loved that game.

    Some simulator games can really make you think “WTF, who’d ever play that?”, but I gotta say, I might consider this one. If it’s accurate, it could be a good way to learn about how those damnfangled machines work. Then I can finally talk with the okes about carbs and diffs… like I can talk to geeks about FPS and SSDs 🙂

    I would actually like to get an engine simulator… But for work, not to play with!! All the engines would do nicely!!

    “which of course brings up the question of why on earth this sequel needed to be Kickstarted in the first place.”

    Answer is, it didn’t. As Red Dot stated the game was going to be made regardless of the results on Kickstarter and the entire purpose of using it was for marketing, not for raising funds to make the game.
