Spintires Now Back On Steam With Official Fix

Spintires [official site] is now back on Steam and an official fix has been released for the crash bug, which was originally rumoured to be sabotage by the game's developer after a falling out with its publisher. That developer, Pavel Zagrebelny, denies it was sabotage and now seems to be possibly denying any rift with the publisher at all.

Spintires Pulled From Sale, Developer Denies Allegations

The Spintires saga rumbles on. Yesterday, we reported on the apparent 'timebombs' in the game's code, which were causing crashes. Reverse-engineering of the code led to the belief that these crashes had been implemented intentionally and may have been the result of a well-documented breakdown in the relationship between developer and publisher. Now, the game's creator Pavel Zagrebelny has denied any responsibility for the issues.…

Spintires Dev ‘Sabotages’ Game After Publisher Relationship Breaks Down

[Update: the developer denies sabotage rumours. What could it be? Possibly a mirage.] Spintires [official site], the splendid game of mud and massive vehicles, appears to have been intentionally damaged by its creator Pavel Zagrebelny. We reported on the troubles that were brewing at Oovee last year. In short, financial disagreements and Pavel's claims that he couldn't update the game as he wanted to had…

Spintires Update Adds New Trucks, Mod Tools To Follow

Spintires' post-release development has seemed at times to be mimicking the game's subject matter, progressing with the speed of enormous lorries grinding themselves deeper and deeper into mud. Progress is being made however, slow and steady. Last Friday publishers Oovee released an update which fixes umpteen bugs, adds five new trucks, and paves the way for Steam Workshop support and mod tools to follow in…

Keep On Trucking: Spintires Development Back On Track

Ooh you could hardly hear yourself think in the RPS treehouse around when Spintires [official site] came out last year, what with Adam thundering around pretending to be a honking great lorry stuck in mud. But development slowed then by the end of the year, a nasty rift had formed between publishers Oovee and maker Pavel Zagrebelny, as The Flare Path reported. It sounded like…

Spintires review

I'm stuck in a puddle and I can't get out. Every attempt to move forward only serves to send me deeper into the hole I've made for myself, and every attempt to reverse causes my vehicle to scream, splutter and stall. It all ends in tears and treadmarks, tires bald and fuel gauge needling toward oblivion. The track has become a battlefield and I'm desperately…

Glorious Mud: Spintires Squelching Out In June

A large part of PC gaming, to me, is developers combining several niche passions to make dream games--games that may not have mass appeal, but will be adored by people at the intersection of their niches. Off-road driving with fancy terrain deformation might appear on any platform, but in a sim where all the vehicles are honking great Soviet-era military and industrial hardware bristling with…

The Flare Path: Bog Standards

The mud on the T19 was always bad, but that Spring it had to be seen to be believed. Bergmann, TransGlobus, Hipponaut... everyone was losing two or three vehicles a week. Even with jug-floats and plutos fitted, you didn't stand a chance. Which is why all of us barons eventually got together and bought The Matriarch. She arrived on three special trains from Port Hendy.…
