About the Truck Driving Simulation Game
SCS Software the maker of American Truck Simulator creates adventure games that allow players to virtually experience driving huge trucking rigs across the country. Actually, truck driving is not the only experience that ATS gamers came to love about the game because the driving adventure is also business goal-oriented.
Players can get hauling contracts and start loading their tractor-trailer and get paid well in the game. The game initializes by opening up a big transportation company in just hours. In order to “succeed” in attaining their business goals, players must drive safely and avoid traffic violations and accidents when in the process of delivering cargo. To ensure the goods will be delivered in good condition and on time, the driver-business operators must make important and smart economic decisions.
According to SCS Software’s CEO Pavel Sebor, their game designers worked hard to mimic the physical forces truck operators experience when driving an 18-wheeler truck. Furthermore environments are presented in realistic-looking graphics, traffic simulation and detailed 3D truck models. The game also follows the rules of the road to promote safe driving and at the same time, encourages experimentation and exploration.
Using Google Street View, designers were able to easily and accurately add reference points and landmarks.
