Answers So Far..

  • Someone asked:
    You have probably been asked this question a lot but what do you want to do after landlord's super break or possibly a new game?
    • MinskWorks replied:
      We've got the design written up for a spiritual successor to Jalopy. More details to come once Landlord's is nearing completion!
  • Someone asked:
    So as of today, there is no way to get a driving car? I read a forum somewhere saying that it was added and you just had to find out how.
    • MinskWorks replied:
      I assume this is for Landlord's Super, in which there isn't a drivable car. The original plan was to add one at a later date but we turned focus on the construction elements in the game, which have ballooned in scope. I'd love to add a drivable vehicle post-release, but Landlord's is a niche project that doesn't quite have the momentum behind it to allow this kind of addition. I'll know more post 1.0 release.
  • Someone asked:
    Hi there! Question about Jalopy. Have you considered this movie called "Mercedes Mon Amour"? as an inspiration?
    • MinskWorks replied:
      No, though Le Grande Voyage was definitely a point of inspiration.
  • Someone asked:
    Is there going to be an electric screwdriver in Landlord Super? There are parts of the house that aren't rendering fully when I look it and the plaster sheets/panels that I put up(and nailed) keep dissapearing.
    • MinskWorks replied:
      Better tools are planned. That's the LOD, try setting the game to visual settings "fantastic" to get a better render distance.
  • Someone asked:
    Can you update Jalopy on xbox one please. I really like the game but it is hard to play when the game crashes all the time. Please update to stop the crashes.
    • MinskWorks replied:
      You'll need to ask Excalibur as I don't have access.
  • Someone asked:
    are there any plans to add in a work van or truck similar to my summer car where the player can load up their stuff and haul it around town? Also, will you be adding coffee into the game?
    • MinskWorks replied:
      I want to add driving functionality to the little green van outside Jimmy's house, but it depends on if the game still has a player base by then. Tea would come before coffee! This is Britain!
  • Someone asked:
    Hey Greg, So I first discovered your work through Landlord's Super, and then learned of Jalopy. From a few comments on the steam forums I'm aware there is some drama over Jalopy, confirmed by other comments on here, but I'm feeling very out of the loop. Everybody seems to know the details, but I don't know where from! One comment seems to suggest the game actually got worse since you were last able to update it and more buggy? Rather than asking you to repeat information on a topic I'm sure you're very fed up of, I'm wondering if you can point me to where everybody else seems to have learned about the situation? Thanks
  • Someone asked:
    Should we play on one of the beta's for jalopy or just base game and if a beta witch one?
  • Someone asked:
    Hey, wanted to say i loved landlord super, helped me get through my covid days, i was wondering what engine you're creating the 2 games on?
    • MinskWorks replied:
      Hey thanks, glad to hear it helped. Both games are made using Unity.
  • Someone asked:
    do you know how much it would cost to re-obtain the jalopy ip? i have no doubt you could raise funds to breathe new life into the game
    • MinskWorks replied:
      I've tried asking, but they don't wish to release the rights. I don't really have enough money to put in a reasonable offer to buy it back and any sequel would have to go through them for approval. Jalopy is stuck in an awful state till the publisher releases it.
