E3 2003: Rig 'n' Roll
US, May 22, 2003 - 1C had pretty wide variety of games to show at this year's E3. Everything from action packed shooters to games like Rig 'n' Roll, which is a truck driving simulation.
...
Developed by SoftLabs, Rig 'n' Roll will give players the chance to ship goods all over the great state of California. All of the main highways have been modeled both in and out of the cities so that you can take that long ride through the valley, from San Diego all the way up into San Francisco, finding secret and faster ways all the time.
...
Get ready to get behind the wheel of all of these American big rigs come Q3 or Q4 of 2004.
:
Yeah, right.

California is about 800 miles from North to South, and Igor has said it is compressed 1:10, so 80 miles in game. Driving 60 mph in game, it would take you 1h 20m.
