Before I started playing Automation, I was a student studying engineering in college and I had only a casual interest in cars. They were cool but I was daunted by the sheer amount of knowledge I would have to learn to truly understand them. But after I started playing Automation, that changed. I was amazed at how the game was able to simplify the mind-boggling complexity of designing a car into something approachable and understandable. And yet, the game still offered hundreds of hours of exploration where I could dive deeper and learn about the finer points of engines, powertrains, and vehicle dynamics. Automation single-handedly inspired me to take automotive-focused classes and spend all of my free time reading about automotive history and technology. In the time that I've been playing Automation, I went from newbie to obsessed gearhead. Because of you, Automation devs, I am now starting a new career as a System Validation Engineer at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles!
