Before you set of on the road, you need to prepare the car. Your vehicle is the fictional Laika 601 Deluxe, based on the real-life Trabbie produced in East Germany that used to have a cult status among the users back in the communistic times. You have to practically put the whole car together and decide what elements to use. Everything will matter later on. The elements you choose to assembly will require various maintenance works and will reflect in the car’s performance on the road. This part of the game can be a real treat for all the car lovers.Navigate your WayIt is a simulation game as you become a driver of the Laika and have to take care of every aspect of the car. Your journey will require navigating through harsh weather conditions and different surfaces like mud. On the way, you will need to change tires or fix the car and do other maintenance works. Keep an eye on the state of engine, tires and even how much space do you have in your trunk. Every little piece needs to be repaired once it gets broken. You will be able to upgrade your vehicle and improve its performance. The state of your Laika and amount of carried cargo will determine how your car behave on the road. The procedurally generated world will prepare various challenges for you and your Laika. As you take care of your car, don’t forget about yourself. The long journey requires breaks and your mental state as a driver is as important as the technical aspect of your vehicle. Remember to stop in the roadside motels to get some proper rest.Travel Back in TimeApart from the typical simulation, the game offers something more: the economic aspect. The Jalopy game takes place in the beginning of the 90’s of the XX century in the East Europe. The Iron Curtain has just fallen and capitalism is starting to thrive in the ex-communistic countries. You are free to travel wherever you want. Your task is to trade various goods with citizens that want to make use of the newly born capitalism and make money on free trade. You will strike various deals that will allow you to become the king of the early capitalism in the Eastern Europe. Beware though, as all is not that easy as it seems – there are still border checks and sometimes you will have to hide from police and just contraband goods as they import to some countries is illegal.Storyline & SummaryThe game has a storyline that starts with the uncle of the character asking him to travel through the East Europe. Along the way, the uncle tells various stories that comes from the communistic times. The specific vibe of the old times behind the Iron Curtain can be felt. However, the most important part is gameplay that is a mix of driving simulation and adventure game in strange economic environment.The game was developed by Greg Pryjmachuk who used to work for Formula 1 franchise between 2009 and 2014.

This book discusses the intersection of Europe and roads. Today we can hardly imagine life without roads and the automobiles that use them to move around. The vast majority of movements in Europe takes place on the road. Travelers use the car to explore parts of the continent on their holidays and goods travel large distances to reach consumers. Indeed, the twentieth century has deservedly been characterized as the century of the car. The situation looked very different around 1900. People crossing national borders by car encountered multiple hurdles on their way. Technically they imported their vehicle into a neighboring country and had to pay astronomic import duties. Often they needed to pass a driving test in each country they visited. Early on, automobile and touring clubs sought to make life easier for traveling motorists. What followed was a century full of international negotiations to tackle the problems arising from differing regulations, with Europe as the main stage. A peregrination along the archives of international organizations has provided the base material for the quest for continental road networks and sets of rules steering their use. The resulting thesis encompasses anything from standardized traffic signs saving human lives on the road to the Europabus taking tourists from Stockholm to Rome in the 1950s. Driving Europe thus offers a highly original portrait of a Europe built on roads in the course of the twentieth century.
