Showing off your mod tools by modding your own game seems like a bit of a cheat to me. It would be like me showing you how easy it was to write a hilarious and witty SEO-filled RPS post by writing a hilarious and witty RPS SEO-filled post, because you’d expect that from me (and also ipad facebook jolie football gaga 22cans xboxone). But that’s what Born Ready Games chose to do, and though I expect it was easier for them than it would be for the average user, it is interesting to see them turn their space-bot fighting game, Strike Suit Zero, into a racing game, shooter, and a parcel delivery simulator. Explainingey videoey belowey.
As you’ll see, the tools are fairly flexible. They hark the opening of a Steam Workshop for the game, so if you did purchase and enjoy it then there’s hopefully more to come. I’m more interested in the non-canon approach, probably best exemplified in Parsec Parcels: the shiny space blaster becomes a grimy, top-down package delivery sim in just four days of development. Other than that, there’s a developer-built F-Zeroish racing game called S-Zero that includes a ghost-racer, and the Asteroid-ish Roid Rage. They’re both at least visually similar to the daddy game, the cheats!
The tools are now sitting in your Steam tools library, if you own Strike Suit Zero.
