Around The Ground: Kish
What is it?
“Around The Ground: Kish” formerly known as Project “92” is an indie driving simulator video-game. it is designed for driving dream cars, buying luxury houses and condos, chillax and live in a summery island. There is more to that, lots of cool ideas may be added to the project.
The island is Kish, a luxurious island of the Persian territory which has never been ever simulated/used in a video-game before.
When will it be ready?
Not soon!! Actually there are no plans for releasing at all.
Check this Trello page out for estimating when this project could be shared. While its structure is almost ready but its island 3D model needs a team to be finished. The island is approximately two times bigger than GTA V’s whole map*. And it uses 100% GIS real data provided by Nokia, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Google.
There are no story modes, no ragdoll animations and no multiplayer, yet. So it needs people’s support if it ever wanted to be finished.
* I compared it to GTA series as nearly everyone know the series, Keep in mind that Kish does not have elevations and snow.
Where will it be released?
That would be steam. It is primarily for PC with some plans for adding an additional Android app.
How much does it cost?
Although I need money and a professional team to finalize it, I currently decided to make it free to play.
Who can enjoy playing it?
I think younger people are not the target audience because I planned to design it to be very realistic. “ATG: Kish” is a simulator.
Why this project is made?
I was a computer software engineer student at the time of devising the project, designing the game was my hobby and still is. For more info about why I made it, please visit this link.
Which innovative features are in this project?
I have planned lots of innovative features for this project, from online marketplaces to XR and so much more which I will publicly share them on here when possible.

Is this a sponsored project?
No, it is a “passion project”. I emptied my bank account for this project, However, I would love to find a successful publisher or sponsor with a professional team to back this project up!
