27 January 2022.
The Poland-based indie games publisher Movie Games and indie games developer DRAGO entertainment, today announced with great thrill and joy that they have just released the free “Car Wash” update for their gas station-themed sim “Gas Station Simulator” (the “Car Wash” update is available right now for PC via Steam and GOG).
Movie Games and DRAGO entertainment have the pleasure to announce that the free Car Wash Update for the hit title Gas Station Simulator is now live on Steam and GOG.com. The game has topped Steam best selling charts upon release and currently is in the 6th position in the GOG.com global bestsellers.
Gas Station Simulator is a game about renovating, expanding, and running a gas station along a highway in the middle of an American desert. The players will clean, fix, paint, decorate, repair or buy new equipment, and start serving their customers, confronting different personas with varied expectations.
The game offers wide customization options as well as plenty of additional activities and minigames. One of its strongest features is emergent gameplay, stemming from high interactivity combined with a variety of random encounters.
Car Wash Update
The biggest addition introduced by the update is the possibility to add a car wash to the player’s gas station. It’s an upgradeable place that starts as an ordinary, manually operated facility, and goes through 5 levels of improvements to eventually become an advanced, automated car wash.
One of the challenges of running the car wash is balancing its use. The water pump has two modes: a narrow range with high pressure and a wide range with low pressure. The more often the player uses the water pump, the faster it jams, which requires the water filters to be cleaned.
Hit among the gamers
Upon its release on the 15th of September 2021, Gas Station Simulator topped the Steam best-selling charts, performing even better than Deathloop. In less than two weeks, this PC exclusive sold 200.000 units. Today, the game boasts a large and engaged community and is one of the biggest hits in Movie Games’ portfolio.
