What is Mashinky about?


It is an independent strategy video game created by Jan Zelený. The combination of procedural generated challenges, realistic graphics and board-game-like straightforward rules. It is a challenging business simulation game with everything around cargo delivery. The player acts as a entrepreneur in control of a transport company. He needs to lay tracks on a difficult terrain, invent and buy new vehicles, project routes and compete against economical rules to make as much profit by transporting passengers and various cargo types as possible to beat other players score around the world.


I loved to play all these tycoon games in my childhood and have no similar opportunity in these days. I started at university with procedural generated landscapes, covered by simulated ecosystems with procedural generated L-system vegetation. Having working landscape generator / renderer, I experimented with board game rules and simple terrain chunks to achieve combination of old fashion isometric game and fully 3D realistic environment. Extending my diploma thesis, I realize that there is a potential and since then, I worked hard to deliver the best game I could even imagine…


– Procedural generated landscapes full of business opportunities, industry, towns.
– Two modes: Isometric schematic construction view and 3D realistic mode for taking a ride in one of your transport vehicle.
– Support for mods, customizable industries, vehicles, landscape types, vegetation etc.
– 7 eras from steam age to modern futuristic trains. Many research paths, building upgrades, stop customization and much more:)
