I’m back on my statistically stochastic simulator shenanigans again, or something like that.
In my quest to find obscure vehicular driving and/or racing simulators, I was slipped Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 on Wednesday morning. Developed by Red Dot Games and published by PlayWay, this one has definitely got the words car and simulator in it. I jest, but this definitely leans more towards a hands on car part game than a driving piece.
This one isn’t as obscure as PowerWash Simulator is. Nevertheless, Car Mechanic Simulator is less about driving and more about learning about making cars go. Similar to Biker Garage: Mechanic Simulator that I covered when I started full-time here at Traxion, it’s about building cars, customizing them, and solving problems in what is described as a “highly realistic simulation game with great attention to detail.”
Some of the features in the full game, due to release later this year, includes a pool of more than 4,000 unique parts among 72 different vehicles to work on. Build a garage, make it your own, and then repair, fix, test, paint, tune and rebuild cars within.
Participate in auctions, scour the junkyard for parts, complete an infinite number of randomly generated tasks, and yes, there is a race track with time trials. There’s the link I was looking for! There’s also an original release from 20218 that is on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and a VR-only edition available on Steam for $19.99.
If you’re a car person, like to get your hands dirty, and want to try something of the sort virtually, then Car Mechanic Simulator might be right up your alley. Give it a go on Steam, as it’s free to demo currently. The new game is slated for release on PC via Steam, but if the 2018 edition is anything to go by, we also hope for a PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S launch too.
