SnowRunner squeals out of the Spintires garage next year

Spintires: MudRunner is a cludgy delight of a thing, somehow turning the nightmare of getting a vehicle snared in sodden dirt into a puzzle game. It did so well that we're here once again, this time with snow chains wrapped around the tires and a flask of warm tea on the passenger seat. SnowRunner is a bigger, wetter, and colder addition to the surprisingly successful…

Spintires: MudRunner’s dirty American expansion is out today

Spintires: MudRunner is Euro Truck Simulator for people who want to get caked in mud while they scream at the ground, demanding that it release their hefty vehicle. It’s a filthy game of churning up muck, recklessly charging into rivers and trying to get up slippery slopes while laden with lumber. It’s brilliant. It’s also off to America, which I believe is quite muddy, in…

Spintires: MudRunner’s Steam Workshop adds map support

Probably the main reason to buy Spintires: MudRunner if you already owned the wonderful original is the prospect of ongoing support, of what the game might become under the stewardship of publishers who aren't publicly feuding with the game's creator. Today saw the release of a new update expanding the muddy drive 'em up's Steam Workshop to support maps too, making it easier to download…

The joy of mud in Spintires: MudRunner

Spintires: MudRunner is a game about driving slowly through mud. It’s beautiful and detailed but also gruelling and unforgiving. The first level took me 3 hours and 21 minutes to complete, during which I drove 18.64 km. That means I averaged slightly less than 6 km per hour. It’s less Fast and Furious and more Grimy and Gradual. I’d struggle to describe it as 'fun'…

Spintires: MudRunner splats out

A hundred Halloween horrors start this way: driving through the wilds, a vehicle becomes stuck and its driver faces a harrowing ordeal. Will they escape and live to see another dawn or will they be found in a shallow grave? A hundred Halloween horrors may start this way but few are nearly as tense and trying as Spintires: MudRunner, which launched overnight. It's an expanded…

Spintires: MudRunner rides out on Halloween

To launch a game on Halloween is to declare that it will make you fill your boots with muck, that you will want to flee but find yourself stuck to the spot, and that you will cry and roar. Spintires: MudRunner [official site] isn't your usual spookfest but I suppose it does hit those points, making the newly-announced Halloween release date fitting. MudRunner is an…

Spintires returning enhanced & expanded in MudRunner

Back in 2014, the RPS treehouse shook with everyone thundering around pretending to be trucks stuck in squelching mud. Such was the captivating magic of Spintires, a serious simulation of simply trying to drive across rough Russian terrain. But ongoing development got bogged down by a drawn-out spat between developer Pavel Zagrebelny and publishers Oovee Game Studio, and Spintires seemed to be left to rust…
