A hardcore driving simulation called Spintires is currently the second best selling game on Steam.
The UK-made game was the subject of a successful Kickstarter that was funded in July 2013 having beaten its £40k funding goal, raising over £60k.
It currently sits behind only the on-sale Just Cause 2 on Steam’s bestseller list and ahead of Early Access hit The Forest. Kotaku reports that it recently topped the rankings, thanks in no small part to a dedicated and vocal following across a number of YouTube channels.
The thrust of the title is the challenge of driving a range of heavy vehicles across rough, deformable terrain – the most notable of which is some very, very deep mud.
Members of the studio have previously worked on a range of notable titles including Halo: Anniversary, Godmode and Inversion. Oovee itself, which has been around since 2007, is best known for developing DLC for RailSimulator.com.
Here’s an example of the game in action:
