My Summer Car is a game developed and published by indie developer Benjamin Pedersen. It is a game about the life of a man who has just inherited his grandfather’s farm and is trying to make it a profitable business. The game is an open-world sandbox game with RPG and driving elements.

My Summer Car game is a car simulator with a twist of a narrative. The game is set in the fictional town of Kattila in Finland, and the player is tasked to create his own vehicle for the annual town race. The goals of the game are to make and customize the car, find sponsors for it and race the car to win the championship. The game has been developed using the Unity game engine and has a 2D top-down view.

Gameplay

Gameplay starts with the player choosing the car manufacturer, the model of the car and its colors, and creating a name for the car. The player then goes to the garage where he is allowed to choose from a variety of engines, tires, and other car parts. The player can also upgrade the cam shafts, pistons, and cylinders to make the car more powerful. The player can also purchase new parts from the car dealer. The player is also able to customize the car with decals from the sticker shop.

The gameplay of My Summer Car is very similar to the simulation game Farming Simulator. The objective of the game is to purchase a car, gather resources, and make them to sell them and make a profit. The game has RPG elements, as the player has to improve his skills as a mechanic and as a driver. The player starts with a 1960s Moskvitch 412 and must upgrade his car in order to be able to make more profit. The player must also improve his skills as a driver in order to be able to navigate the difficult roads of the game.

The player is then given a map of the town with a list of sponsors. The player is required to visit various sponsors and convince them to sponsor his car. However, the player is given a limited amount of time to do this.
