Automation Game's competitor has already been released!

:stuck_out_tongue:

  1. no economic part
  2. limited engine selection
  3. still good for 1982 game
  4. better than Car Tycoon

not really a competitor…

I played that back in junior high. Wouldn’t call it a competitor at all more like a ancestor :stuck_out_tongue:

I think that’s the point :stuck_out_tongue:

sorry, should have been more obvious i was joking :slight_smile:

ye sorry, i was being sarcastic/jokey too lol

:wink:

What font implies sarcasm??

normally a simile implies sarcasm

I played that game in my industrial tech class in middle school. I have fond memories. I’ve also played it a couple times since then using dosbox, for nostalgia sake.

And Gran Turismo 5’s competition has been out forever!

I would say that Automation is more of a sequel to Detroit (Dos)… I wished that game had a better car building interface, and I love Automation attention to engine details. :slight_smile:

Wow, I remember that from junior high. I remember building a mid-engined sportscar.

Very old school looking. Automation will be much better!

Except games mentioned here together with Motor City, Detroit and Car Tycon is there any other similar game?

Thanks

I’ve played a more updated truck version of this game. Compared to Automation, this doesn’t stand a chance.

What is the name of the truck version of this game?

holy crap i remember that game, i think i found it a good 5 years ago when i was looking for games that did what automation WILL do

Truck builder
