SpinTires Inspires!

What is there to learn from getting stuck in mud over and over again in the hazardous road simulator SpinTires? Probably nothing, but what if?

ive wondered for YEARS if wave physics in games have in fact ever surpassed Waverace.


And its funny cause I found out about that game today elsewhere and I was just telling my brother that the nice thing about this is someday this will probably make it into an A list mainstream game. He was just before tht showing me a trailer of a game with amazing car crash physics called BeamNG drive which I hope will one day ALSO make it in major games. Look it up

Someone seriously needs to make a mod for this that's based on the film "Wages of Fear".

why does he say cod?... it doesn't even have vehicles in mp. If anything they should put the mud physics in BF games in certain spots. Also have deep snow drifts. People could get stuck in the mud with atvs, jeeps and tanks. I think that would be more fun then delivering lumber.

Yeah seen this on steam and was tempted but I dont think there is much point to the game.. its an awesome tech demo thats for sure :)

GTA needs this to actually give a meaning to picking an offroad vehicle / going offroad. Watching the cops spin up their wheels going nowhere while you circle around them would be classic. (Until they got out of the car and shot you, of course)

If you can buy this game, DO IT.

Would be great if someone mod in a tank to see how they handle those mud physics.

This game looks half hilarious, half awesome.

Just picked it up and it's really great. Not sure I would call it "fun" in the traditional sense, but it's definitely something that will keep your attention. The driving mechanics are very realistic. You get to toggle all-wheel drive, and there's even a manual gear shift option. You also get to toggle an option that makes all wheels spin at the same rate or only individual tires depending on how much traction it has. All-wheel drive and the traction option drain your fuel faster as well, so it's got quite a bit of strategy.

I got really excited looking at videos of this game.  Must be getting old.  But seriously, I do wish developers would concentrate more on this kind of thing/interaction rather than just small incremental graphics improvements.

BeamNG Drive is another game that has fantastic potential in terms of being a game changer in the physics department.

I've always wanted a game that tries to realistically simulate offroading, not racing, but the more technical side of it.  I've been following this game for awhile, if it goes on sale for a good discount I'll grab it.

Graphics are gorgeous, but then again it is PC.

@hitomo @lonesamurai1 The connection is that PC looks better but gameplay remains the same across all platforms. But these games are made by few people so its easier to start on Steam. Wont be suprised if this ends up on PS4 later on.

@WolfgarTheQuiet  I doubt it because console gamers don't have the patience that PC Gamers have, they want fast loud in your face AAA titles, that is what being a console gamer is about.

@lonesamurai1 @WolfgarTheQuiet "Console gamers don't have the patience that PC gamers have".


Yep, that's why PC gamers continue to whine and petition in order to get console games. The "petition master race" seems like an appropriate title.

@lonesamurai1 Spoken like a true publisher executive: "Our customers are brain damaged" ;)

The reason it's on PC is because it's the only platform left that still offers a bit of freedom. This game dosn't require much of your PC, consoles could easily run this. But consoles are closed to projects that evolve over time and has zero modding support - so for now it will stay on PC.
