Status: Released!


Description:

Release date: Full Game TBA, Likely 2015, Steam Early Access This Year
Winner of Best Technical Innovation - Freeplay 2012
Over 5500 Preorders Sold



About the Game

Automation allows the player to become an armchair CEO - to build their own car company from the ground up. Create and run anything from a boutique supercar manufacturer to a mass-market multinational mogul. With powerful tools like the Engine Designer, the player can create cars and their engines in mind-boggling detail.

The grand campaign starts in the year 1946 and runs until 2020, with the main goal being to build a successful, renowned car company from scratch. All types of car manufacturers can be led to success if managed properly; building the right image over the years is key. The player’s tasks are to design engines and cars, to manage factories, production, Research and Development, as well as advertising campaigns. In game, time advances at the pace the player chooses and pauses automatically for events and occurrences.

Automation is comprised of three major game components - the Engine Designer, the Car Designer and the Company Manager. These components are naturally strung together by the game’s goals, made to be user-friendly and intuitive to use. A multitude of tutorial missions, videos, and descriptive texts help car novices become experts. Almost infinite options give the player all the creative freedom to create unique cars with vastly different engines.



Development

Work on Automation started in 2010 and reached beta stage for the Engine Designer in 2011. A playable, limited-content demo version of the Engine Designer made a debut release in April 2012, with extra-content releases as development progresses. At this point, the Car Designer component is nearing completion, although still has lot more content to come. The Company Manager has been extensively designed, and production work on it will start after the Steam Early Access release in approx. Mid March this year.

Our goal is to create an in-depth creative experience for enthusiasts, for those who have some technical affinity and enjoy mastering complex and rewarding systems. Priorities are playability, fun, and a high degree of realism. Our philosophy is it‘s better to educate the gamer than to dumb down the game for the sake of mass-market appeal.

Camshaft Software strives to be as open and transparent as possible with development, livestreaming our work regularly and interacting with our community.
