Spintires is a popular Steam driving game. Recently, it stopped working under mysterious circumstances. People came to believe the game’s own programmer, Pavel Zagrebelnyy, sabotaged it because he wasn’t getting paid. That’s (probably) not true.
Something curious happened over the weekend: a game called 'Spintires' rose through the Steam charts, eventually becoming the top-selling game on Steam for a few days. Right now, as of this writing, it's number two. One thing lots people, myself included, couldn't help but asking was: why?
Off-road truck simulator Spintires is now out on Steam, exactly one year after the successful conclusion of its Kickstarter campaign. The launch trailer, which was released a few weeks ago, should be able to show you what the finished game is like (though I believe the actual game has significantly less wubs).
One of the best things about driving games on the PC is that they're not all about racing sports cars. There's stuff like Euro Truck Simulator. And now this, Spintires, which is basically a game about trying to keep trucks on the road on some of the world's worst roads.
