Oxfordshire, 8th September 2009– Filling a massive hole (rather than a gap in the market place), Excalibur Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Digger Simulator for PC-CD. Scheduled for release on 18th September 2009 in the UK, Digger Simulator leaves the simulation enthusiast with nothing to be desired.

From a small steam shovel to a huge bucket wheel with a length of 240 metres, you take control of everything. Starting with excavating the footings, with the help of the extensive control unit you have to control the digger’s chassis, paddle and arm. As well as the bucket wheel and steam shovel, you will also need to take control of bulldozers, crawler-type loaders and dumper trucks to execute all the tasks involved in working at a busy gravel pit.

Digger Simulator’s detailed graphics and beautifully designed vehicles serve to make this product as realistic a building site simulation as possible, due in no small part to the realistic controls. It even features multiple camera angles so you can check your rear-end swing!

Close your eyes and you’ll practically smell the bacon sandwiches at 11:00am. The only thing that could make Digger Simulator more realistic would be a white van, a flask, a copy of the Sun on the dashboard and a very politically incorrect wolf whistle at the foreman’s daughter!

Digger Simulator offers endless hours of realistic building site simulation fun. Hobnail boots not necessary!
