Find out what it's like to be a trucker in Rig'n'Roll

"Players will step into the shoes of a young man in the year 2024 as he arrives in California to pursue his dreams of road domination and capture the Californian cargo transportation market. There are miles of highways to conquer and cities and towns to reach as he becomes the greatest trucker on the highways."

That is seriously from the press release that came with the Rig'n'Roll assets.

So, yeah. Players will get to play as a trucker as he tries to corner the California market on trucking. You'll deliver cargo, get in races and you'll eventually be able to establish a cargo company and manage the thing. Hire staff, hire drivers and expand your business until there's no competition left. 

There's over 12,000 miles of road in the game taking you to over 40 different California cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles. It could potentially take you a few hours to get to one point on the map to the other, in fact. There will also be realistic weather and day and night cycles. 

I played with Rig'n'Roll very briefly at the 1C Company event and wasn't all that impressed with the game. Controls were stiff and the graphics looked somewhat last-gen. It did remind me a lot of Sega's 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker for the Dreamcast, but without that arcade feel. 

Rig'n'Roll will be out sometime this year for the PC. Check out the trailer and photos in the gallery after the break. 

Players will step into the shoes of a young man in the year 2024 as he arrives in California to pursue his dreams of road domination and capture the Californian cargo transportation market. There are miles of highways to conquer and cities and towns to reach as he becomes the greatest trucker on the highways. Rig'n'Roll is a sequel to the famous Hard Truck series. This time the game world is true-to-life. Gamers can race high-powered Semis along thousands miles of real Californian roads, visiting San-Francisco to San Diego, San Jose to Los Angeles.

Rig'n'Roll delivers players the ultimate truck driving experience with authentic models of trucks and their interiors, completely new physics and astonishing 3D graphics among numerous features. Players will outrun their opponents to deliver cargo on time or take part in truck races to prove their professional skills, giving them the opportunity to improve their rating and authority among other drivers.

Rig'n'Roll also gives gamers an opportunity to test their management skills as they establish their own cargo transportation company. Players will recruit staff and hire other drivers to work for them as they expand their business and eliminate their competitors from the transportation market. Apart from being the most accurate and innovative truck driving simulation game ever produced, Rig'n'Roll immerses players in an exciting story with an unexpected finale, making new allies and battling treacherous foes as they discover a conspiracy that will test their skills to the limit.

10 hours into the Witness, I've solved 350 puzzles, and activated 8 lasers. So, that's about 35 puzzles an hour, I think that's a pretty good pace. I have no idea how many more puzzles there are, but I think I'll be getting towards the first ending soon.

Shoot, I have made the awful mistake of watching 50 First Dates while doing Comments of the Week. The comedy in the beginning gave me energy, but all of the sad drama is making me cry and it's hard to see through all the tears. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME!? 8^8

Kotobukiya's making a Xenoblade Chronicles X Formula skell model that looks great but I'd rather have a Lailah model. And I would name it Tharja just like my Lailah in the game.

Yep, Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly is still as bad and unpolished as I remember it. Still manages to give me a headache too due to the choppy framerate.

Eye of the Beholder (2014) - Possible boss battle theme for a video game. Love the action strings and bell instrument. I wrote this song for 2AD14 - II, which has many great tracks on it. This one is one of my favorites, which is why I'm sharing it.
