Trackday Manager is a game being created and developed by Artic Hazard. It was Greenlit on Steam on January 28, 2015. The game is PC exclusive and goes into Early Access on Steam on May 27th for $24.99/€19.99.
Trackday Manager is a 3D simulation/manager multiplayer game where you are in charge of managing a racing team. You are not the driver but the team chief. You control your driver during races by issuing commands through several options while monitoring the race carefully in beautiful 3D surroundings. Your goal is to guide your driver and team to victory.
When, where and how you perform the different commands is the key to being successful. One command given at the wrong time may lead to your driver losing ground, the car breaking down or other severe incidents. On the other hand, a command given at the correct time will bring you closer to a podium finish. Other means of being successful involve pit stop strategies, component upgrades, buying new cars, Team & driver experience progress and sponsorship deals.
TM uses real life sponsors which you have to please by winning races or satisfying other criterias set out in the sponsor agreement. Your success is always updated on the online leaderboard, both in-game and on the TM website, which tells you how well you are doing compared to your friends and the rest of the world.
TM features fully rendered 3D environments with a default top down look but you can even view the race from the cocpit of your car, the choice is yours. Another interesting feature is changing of weather conditions during races, allowing for some truly diverse scenery and awesome chaos in the pit stop when the rain starts pouring down and everyone needs to change to wet weather tires at the same time.
