"It's become a game of chess, by wheel and trigger."

Auto Fire is a reinterpretation of the great auto combat games of the 1980's:  Car Wars, Autoduel, Roadwar 2000, and others. It combines the tactical combat planning, dynamic world-generation, and player advancement of Roguelikes with outlaw landscapes, decked-out cars and the ongoing quest for fame.  Refine your vehicle, take on missions and build a name for yourself in a world where the only way to thrive is to drive.

This is a WORK IN PROGRESS build!  Until the game is closer to feature complete, no donation is needed!  There are a number of features not yet implemented, but please try it out to get a sense of what the game will be like.  Your feedback in the forums is also appreciated!

The current platforms are 64-bit and 32-bit Windows only (for now).  We totally recommend a non-mobile video card for performance.

Basic Features:

  • Overworld allows player to move between cities and outposts, and between sectors.
  • Combat driving in either the outposts or ruined cities.             
  • Each location has a generated faction controlling it and a boss to go with it.
  • Basic quest system will direct you to take out the boss to clear the area.
  • Dynamic camera and VFX based on speed.
  • The faster you travel, the more turns you get.
  • Experiment with grip and skids...  Get comfortable with drifting.
  • Stop by garages for repairs or equipment installation.
  • Return to citadels to buy/sell equipment, and take on courier missions.

Soon to come:

  • Improved progression arc.  No real balance as of yet.
  • More weapons, equipment and enemies.
  • Special maneuvers like bootleggers and charge rams.
  • Encounters on the overworld map.
  • Citadel contains additional courier missions, arena duels, and a bar for rumors.
  • Fame and skill progression tracking, with media coverage of select combats.
