I watched some streamers playing the recently released SnowRunner not too long ago, and there was something about it that made me want to give it a try. The premise of the game is simple enough, drive a truck to make deliveries, explore, or recover other vehicles in extreme environments. Yet, there’s something oddly mesmerizing about the struggle to complete these straight forward tasks.
What a fun ride! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I ended up enjoying everything so far. The mechanics are solid, and the freedom to approach each task with my own strategy really made my experience feel interesting and unique. I actually can’t wait to jump back into to mud and snow to get things done, and make more progress in the game.
