Showing Support for the Game

The game as it stands today is the bare shell of what I'd like to create and I hope with a little luck and support I can build it into something amazing!

Ko-fi

Spread the word!

Telling your favourite online communities or friends & family about the game is one of the best ways you can help. That way the player base grow with no cost to yourself 😀

Buy from the shop!

Take a look at our Redbubble store and see if there is anything you fancy. If you buy one of our self-made designs then I get a modest commission and you get some cool wares! 😎

  • The more support I receive the bigger and better the game can become, both in terms of features and content.
  • Games like this take a lot of time (& therefore money) to make. I have been working on this project for more years than I'd like to admit. Over the past couple of years I completely re-vamped the game to create a solid foundation for the future.
  • For the project to continue at this pace, I need support. With your help this would be possible.
Background

MotorNation is an automotive strategy game where the ownership of vehicles is as important as anything else. In the racing games of the late 90s working your way through the ranks to buy better cars was part of the core formula, but in more recent years games throw cars at the player like confetti - most of which are never used. The aim of MotorNation is to distill the ownership parts of racing games and combine them ultimately into a complete automotive ownership simulation.

The game is far more than meets the eye. It has been designed to be easy to play but underneath is a number of complex models, simulating many different aspects including:

  • How fast a car can drive around a race circuit
  • Car performance upgrades and their effects
  • Car wear and tear, which also increases when being raced
  • Car valuations based on the year 2000
  • Simulated second hand cars including mileage/wear/rarity
  • Car class calculation to show the racing potential of cars
  • Simulated citizens that will buy your car based on price at semi-random intervals

It has taken substantial effort to progress the game this far but I believe now is the time for it to grow and with your help we can achieve this.

Who am I?

I'm Andrew and I've been obsessing about cars for as long as I'd been able to talk. This project has been my passion for many years and I believe it is an original game with nothing else quite like it.

Why me?
  • My knowledge of cars and computers is considerable.
  • I have bought many old cars, done the vast majority of work on them and resold them myself.
  • When many kids were reading comics etc... I was reading classified car magazines given to me by my Grandad!
  • I've been into computers as long as I have cars. I have been programming for at least 20 years and professionally for nearly as long.
Why website / text based?
  • It is likely the only way to achieve the scope I would like to accomplish.
  • As a one man project it would be impossible otherwise.
  • Websites provide an accessible platform to involve more players and helps keep the game focused & intuitive to use.
  • In future I plan to create mobile ports of the game and possibly a desktop version if there is sufficient interest.
How does it work?

The game can be played anywhere providing you have a recent web browser (on desktop / tablet / mobile), it is predominately text based and is designed to be played a little, but often.

In memory of Grandad
