…We are enemies?

I Made This. You Play This. We Are Enemies.

I Made This. You Play This. We Are Enemies. is definitely one of the strangest games I’ve ever played.

The short answer is that you can’t, but the long answer is that you give it to the guys at Crawford Performance and let them trick, tune and test the car over the course of 43 days and 800+ man hours to build a certified, track ready, punishment seeking Subaru that will do just about anything that you ask it to.
