A Different Kind of Puzzle: ‘Wrench’ Tasks You With Assembling Cars Right Down to the Nuts & Bol
If preparing cars for motorsports in VR sounds like your idea of a good time, indie game Wrench is one to keep an eye on. Showcased in this recent ‘prototype trailer’, Wrenchfeatures painstakingly detailed car parts which the developer hopes to use in a rewarding, problem-solving car shop game.
3D artist and car enthusiast Alec Moody is now developing his VR car shop project Wrench full time, and the early results speak for themselves.
The years of experience as a 3D artist in the games industry, creating high quality assets for games like The Order: 1886 (2015), along with various work for vehicle simulators like iRacing (2008) and Game Stock Car (2012) is clearly apparent in the stunning models featured in Wrench.
As explained in his development blog, Moody wanted to create a game that took advantage of his strengths as an artist, and his interest in cars.
“Because I specialize in modeling mechanical objects for video games and am not a programmer, any game I build myself needs to be heavy on art content and light on programming needs”, he wrote. “With that in mind, along with my personal interest in and knowledge of cars and motorsports, I am building a game about working on cars with a focus on preparing them for motorsports.”
