Hey everyone,

 

I'm based in Auckland. When I was a kid, the arcade/NES classic Ironman Super Offroad was my favourite game, and my childhood dream was to one day make a modern version of it. 

So after 8 years of blood, sweat and toil, and a lot of money and time, here are the fruits of my labour...

Let me know if you have any questions about the game or its development, of any questions about game development in general.

I loved Super Off Road on the Amiga, was always the cause of fights ;)

 

This looks very cool,  but dunno about the "crates" , always reminds me of "pay to win" games ;)

 

I'll be keen to give it a go either way :)

Thanks for the comments :)

 

 

 

The premium version will be on Steam/PC, a free to play version with microtransactions will be on mobile.

 

 

 

The crates are for unlocking customise items, and truck parts, which if you collect enough, will give you a free upgrade. 
You can still upgrade without them.

 

So they are not really a core part of the game.
