Truck Mechanic: Dangerous Paths Dev Diary #89

Hello Truck Mechanics!

Welcome to another developer post. We got some news about Truck Mechanic: Dangerous Paths development process.

Continued work on maps

Our most important goal was to comprehensively prepare all the main tasks on the next two maps. As you might have already noticed in the prologue, our approach is quite unique, as most of the tasks, will not involve the truck itself. Your truck will break down as a result of its poor handling, driving on heavy terrain or just random crashes caused by, for example, excessive speed. The tasks are diverse and will be tied together by an interesting storyline.

Each map will have an architectural feature that will stand out strongly. For example, in a map with massive mines, there will be a giant excavator. On the next one, it will be already mentioned and shown gondola. We don’t want to reveal everything, so that you can discover for yourself, and explore the rich world of Truck Mechanic: Dangerous Paths.

We have already mentioned this, but we want to highlight it very strongly again. The missions in the game will be diverse and all intertwined with a surprising storyline. We’re putting a lot of work into making sure that at every point in the ride you enjoy what you encounter along the way and have a little conundrum about whether you’re sure that shortcut you saw on the map is actually still passable and whether it’s better to turn around and take a different route.

Bart conversations

Besides, we have implemented another solid portion of dialogues, stuffed with reactions from Bart, who, while driving over the maps, comments on his decisions and tells a lot of interesting facts about various objects. We want the dialogues to build a unique atmosphere and the player to know that there is something interesting in the area that is worth checking out or exploring for finds.

Improvements to the UI

We have updated the UI. All information, object icons their state – has been improved. All this is done to make the gameplay clear, transparent and inform accurately about all events. The changes, although subtle, will be noticeable, and will make the game just that much more enjoyable.

Stay tuned for more updates and keep on trucking! If you like what you see, consider adding Truck Mechanic to your Steam Wishlist!
