My Summer Car is an open world car building maintenance game. The player is thrown into the summer of 1995, where the player must build and repair his father’s old car. By doing minigames and jobs for neighbors and other individuals, the player will be able to acquire currency that can buy new parts and other prebuilt vehicle configurations.
As stated before, the player is thrown into the summer of 1995, where the player must repair and fix his father’s old Satsuma AMP. Through a series of jobs that the player can do to gain money, the player must also balance other aspects of life such as hunger, thirst, etc.
The player at the beginning of the game must build the car from nearly scratch. It is also possible to accidentally build the car in the wrong way, which would hinder its ability to start. Also, the car will require fuel, and other fluids such as coolant, brake and clutch fluid, etc. Furthermore, the player has a plethora of other pre-assembled vehicles at their disposal. For example, a cargo van that only needs fuel changes is capable of carrying large loads perfect for part carrying, etc.
For the survival aspect of the game, the player can buy food and drinks from the store or drink directly from a water source such as a faucet. Urine can be relieved by urinating, dirtiness can be removed by showering and fatigue can be lowered by sleeping or drinking coffee. Permanent death is also a feature in the game if fatigue, hunger, thirst, etc are lowered to an extreme point the player may eventually face permanent death where the player must restart.
While the graphics are decent, it is not extraordinary. Compared to other highly graphical realistic games released in 2016, the graphics are a bit behind. Even though the graphics are not superb, they are workable and still give a great representation of car parts and its management.
My Summer Car is highly similar to UK Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator in the sense that the driving is highly similar. A cool summer scenic drive with trees is exactly what represents My Summer Car. Similarly, the game is similar to Car Mechanic Simulator 2015, as both games require the player to repair and fix cars. However, the difficulty in My Summer Car is immensely greater than the Car mechanic simulator. Repairing is more meticulous and can be easily built incorrectly in My Summer Car.
My Summer Car is a great representation of realistic car mechanics through its tedious car repairing and difficulty curve. If you’re looking for a game with many different mini-games and jobs, this game gets the job done. Just having the satisfaction of repairing and building your first car is what makes this game different. Due to the difficulty of creating a car that runs, completing one in this game is highly satisfying and gives a sense of completion. It’s a sort of satire and comical video game, definitely not too serious, perfect for car fanatics.
