Because I Only Just Noticed It: Tricky Truck

By John Walker on March 22nd, 2011.

Is this jack-knifed? I've never known that that means.

Okay, it’s time to stop. I’ve found the best game ever. And I’ve not even played it yet. The fine Mr Cameron IMs me saying, “Euro Truck Simulator, eat your heart out,” and he’s right. In fact, everything else, eat your heart out. Tricky Truck is a game about driving a giant, heavy lorry across tracks that look like they were built by a Trackmania fan who only had concrete. Oh! It’s from Gravitysensation, the guys who did Sumotori Dreams! Right, I’m going to play it – see if my enthusiasm is correctly placed, or if I was right to be a bit worried by a website that looks like it’s been run through that Geocities filter. (And before anyone says, I know full well that Kieron posted about this last August, but no one took any notice, including me, so I’m highlighting it all over again. And we’ll keep posting it until you care. It’s only your time you’re wasting.)

Park Life: Tricky Truck

By Kieron Gillen on August 2nd, 2010.

I'm quietly proud of this screenshot. The game in a grab! Go!

Thanks to Terry for bringing ESSENTIAL INFORMATION to us which we must DISSEMINATE immediately. As part of the current Assembly GameDev compo the maker of the immortal Sumotori Dreams has released a new game. Archee continues his muse (“Drunken Real Time Physics” has a certain ring) with Tricky Truck. It’s basically a micro-Stunt Car Racer with articulated Lorries, with you having to park your enormous vehicle at the end of a course. Not as funny as Sumotori Dreams, but more of a real game, I recommend giving it a try in hard mode, where you have to drive inside your truck and rely on checking out your mirrors and looking around desperately to stop yourself careening into harm. Go gets.
