Description

Independent strategy video game created by Jan Zelený. The combination of procedurally 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.

History

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

Features

- Procedurally 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 moders, customizable industries, vehicles, landscape types, vegetation etc.
- 7 eras from steam age to modern maglev trains. Many research paths, building upgrades, stop customization.
