About this project

We would like to present you our new project - Garage Online

We want to create complete car game basing on our system of car repairs. We are working on adding car dealership, car designing, trades, cooperation mode and racing - Perfect world for every car enthusiast!

Check Garage Online on Greenlight!

 Introduction

You are 21 years old car enthusiast, who wants to make yourself a name as a car mechanic. For the last handful of cash you hire a small, battered garage in the most unfriendly district of the city. This place is known for illegal races which are held during a night by young drivers, hungry for adrenaline just like you. However, you must focus now on getting some money. It is time to offer your services and to attract customers to your garage. Remember that you have to run your business properly if you want to race. Maybe you will be able to buy yourself your own ride one day.

Car disassembly

Watch how a single mission looked like in our previous game - Car Mechanic Simulator 2014

We based Garage Online on our system of fully interactive car interiors. There are over 100 replaceable parts in a single car, but it is not enough for us. We are working now on dismantling bigger parts like an engine and a gearbox and then adding even more details to car models. 

To complete it, we will add exterior tuning - replacement of the body parts and painting.

Upgrade your garage

Buying new equipment will expand your services and will attract more customers. More orders mean more money, better cars and faster career. You can also customize your workplace.

Car dealership

Buy used or damaged cars at the auction house for half a price, restore them and sell with a profit. Well run car dealership can be a big factor for your business.

Design your own car

While you are working as a mechanic and a car dealer you can earn money and collect car parts that can be used for building your own car. We enable you to design your car from scratch - starting from its shape and finishing with choosing a color of the brake pads. Your scrupulous work will pay off because after a whole day of hard work it is time to drive it somewhere.

It is not a problem at all if you are not a racer. Build your car and sell it or show it at the car jamborees!

Cooperation mode

Run garage with your friends. Work faster, take on more assignments and earn more money. Remember that your garage competes with the others. If you work together with your co-worker you are able to take over more jobs and offer your services to more clients. 

City

Every road of the city will be free to drive. It is a place for you to show your project to the world. There will be some important locations in the city like auction house, car part shops, car showrooms and so on. Open city will be also a place for players to socialize because, you know, work is not everything.

Try your machine on the race track

Once your car will be ready to go, you can go outside your workplace and race with the other players. Cars are not indestructible, so if you damage something you will have to repair that on your own.

Car jamborees

Those will be regular events in which players will be able to show their self made vehicles. The best looking car will be chosen by a vote.

Create your own brand

What a career would it be - to begin your journey as a mechanic and finish as a well-known car manufacturer. it turns out to be really good you will be able to set up own brand and produce cars on a larger scale.

RPG elements

We want to add to this game some elements from role-playing games to make sure that players will feel that their careers are actually developing. For instance, when your mechanic gains experience he repairs cars quicker. He becomes a better driver if he drives a lot or he can manage his business in a more effective way - it depends on you which skills your mechanic would develop first. Your garage will be customizable and full of up-grade options. Cars will have specific parameters which you can always affect by replacing stuff.

There will also be Titles system. Titles will be displayed under your avatar name. They will present your the most impressive achievements.

What we have now is the system of dismantling car interiors. We are pretty sure it is interesting material to create free-to-play multiplayer game so it is worth exploiting.

Firstly, we will focus on adding more interactive parts to car models and expand the standard car base. Then, we will create and imply the system of visual tuning. Engine interior and turbo will be the first to add to the game.

Secondly, we will work a on the multiplayer mode. Players will be able to run a business with friends in the co-operation mode - trade cars, run your own car showroom and race during a night. We are going to create a whole open city and some racetracks.

Furthermore, we will design an in-game economy and the market. Players will be able to trade with the others.

Mobile devices would have a special use when you want to manage your business well. It is good to be online often because you never know when an incredibly good occasion appears in the auction house.

50 000$ CAD - Legit multiplayer game. Players will be able to cooperate during missions - running a garage with your friends will significantly ease your career. You can build better car or modify your workplace faster to attract wealthier customers. We will also add more details and parts to the car models to make them as realistic as possible. There will be also a few streets to drive and one racetrack but we cannot afford big city yet.

75 000$CAD - Complex trading system and open in-game market. Selling and buying parts, checking auctions for damaged cars. All of these features will enable you to manage your business better and earn money and fame.  

90 000$ CAD - Expanded city. It is going to be a place, where you can take your car for a ride and show it to the other players. This will also be the centre of trades, auctions, side quests and player interactions.

110 000$ CAD - Expanding the game for mobile devices. Some aspects like little repairs, trading or auctions that can be displayed that way can enhance the feeling of constantly working market. It's better to be aware all the time because you never know when the occasion appears.

130 000$ CAD - More racetracks. Once you finish your car you can go racing with the other players.

On the Garage Online will be working the same group of people who created Car Mechanic Simulator 2014. It is a team composed of people from PlayWay inc. and Red Dot Games Studio. After the successful release of our previous game - CMS 2014 we received hundreds of questions and ideas regarding how the game should develop. We gathered and analyzed all that feedback and we decided to take the next step. We need your help to build on our previous title to create a really good game which would attract players for years.

Leading people

Krzysztof Kostowski - CEO and founder of PlayWay inc. He manages the whole Garage Online project.

Peter Wieckowski - Manager of the PlayWay Canadian office. He created the idea of how Garage Online will look like. Main designer of the project. Peter is responsible for balance tests and contacts with the community.

Dariusz Ruman - Main programmer and Red Dot Games CEO. He created his first game 22 years ago on Atari 65XE. He has been writing games professionally for 6 years now.

Patrick Chodowski - Main tester/ testing manager. He ensures the quality of the project. He sometimes gives very good ideas and sometimes not so good too.

There is a whole team composed of graphics, music and movie makers, programmers and consultans who will give it all to create wonderful this game.

We have so many ideas how to expand our base and to take advantage of its potential. We have taken the next step to push our project forward and we need your help to cover the costs of the development process and server maintenance. 

Total cost includes:

  • Fees and taxes - 10%
  • Add - Ons and rewards production - 5%
  • Consultations - 10%
  • Development Process - 50%
  • Server Maintenance - 25%

Risks and challenges

Developing a game is always difficult. It consumes much work and time. Setting up an online world with its own economy requires a lot of work, skill and knowledge.

We have already designed and created the system of car disassembly. It is our base on which we are going to build the multiplayer game. We want to take advantage of that specific and complex system.

We are pretty sure we can release Garage Online in the 2015, it is up to you how complex and big it will become. In our opinion the biggest challenge will be to create balanced in-game market.

The system of car disassembly is ready for improvements and extensions. It is something that will differentiate us from other racing games. You can be sure we will do anything to create an online world where players will have fun working as a mechanic.
