Wobbly road trip adventure Jalopy leaves Early Access

It's been a long, bumpy road, but Jalopy has finally completed its pilgrimage through the plains of Early Access, and has officially launched. It's one of those games so distinct and original, it's no surprise that it's held our attention for years; a low-budget (and low-fi) road trip adventure from Germany, across eastern Europe on a course for Turkey. All the way, driving a crumbling…

Jalopy completes its early access journey next week

The Eastern European road trip Jalopy has almost completed its journey through early access, after nearly two years, and will properly launch next Wednesday, March 28th. You know, Jalopy, the game set in the 90s about driving your uncle from Germany to Turkey in a scrappy Trabant 601. Lots of things to pick up and fiddle with. That one. I enjoyed packing my car and…

Jalopy’s Turkey update adds backstory via licence plates!

I'l admit I entirely forgot that Jalopy [official site] getting a Turkey update meant the country and not, e.g. the bird. I was conjuring up all kinds of adventures I could take a turkey on while we played the roadtrip 'n' car maintenance adventure. Just me and my feathery friend, the wind in our wings, the radio set to some bangin' choons, the turkey in…

Parp parp! Roadtrip ’em up Jalopy rolls into Bulgaria

As Jalopy [official site] continues to trundle on through early access, the roguelikelike roadtrip 'em up has added Bulgaria in an opt-in beta. It's not perfect but if you fancy pootling over the holidays, it should see you right. Along with adding the twisty and hilly new land, the update adds different road conditions and different tyres to go with them, plus new hazards like…

Jalopy Adds The-Artist-Formerly-Known-As-Yugoslavia

Having failed to even make it out of Germany and then becoming trapped in a sausage shop (not a euphemism) I am probably not the best person to talk to about Jalopy [official site] adding new territories for Early Access players to explore. Yet here we are, about to talk about the appearance of the artist formerly known as Yugoslavia in Minskworks' Eastern bloc car…

Jalopy: Back Seat Driving And The Remains Of Uncle

Alice isn't here to remind me what "news" is so I'm going to tell you about something which I find infinitely entertaining about Jalopy [official site]. It's nothing to do with the game itself and everything to do with the ongoing development Q&A Greg from MinskWorks is running in relation to the game. It's the back seat. The back seat has been the focus of…

Toot Toot! Jalopy Rolls Into Hungary With New Update

Fancy a little weekend getaway? Get off Teletext and turn to Jalopy [official site], the roadtrip simulator formerly known as Hac. The latest update on Jalopy's journey through Early Access has added a whole new country, Hungary. The full journey across Europe is still a good few countries short but you can also now keep yourself busy by repainting your dinky little car and raiding…

Road Trip ‘Em Up Jalopy Screeches Into Early Access

Road trip game Jalopy [official site] has launched onto Steam Early Access, ready to pootle around a portion of Europe. We've been cooing and making kissy faces at it since since it was called Hac, winking and waggling our eyebrows as developer Minskworks showed off minute first-person interactions like packing supplies, cleaning the car, shopping, and refuelling. So naturally I entirely missed that Jalopy's Early…

Procedural Road Trip Sim Jalopy Drives On Greenlight

I can't remember the last time I was so excited about a game that damn near no one else has heard of. RPS has been doing its best to rev your engines. Over the course of Jalopy's [official site] (née Hac) development so far, we've written four posts about the procedurally generated road trip, Alice and I racing one another to share the latest GIFs…
