About this blog

Rail Route is a rail network management and operations simulation game. You negotiate contracts, build railroads, set up routes for trains and control the traffic. Unlock features to your dispatcher interface, upgrade railway network elements and research new technologies that allow you to automate the operations!

I am happy to announce that we release first demo of Rail Route! We have polished our first prototype of train routing and added a simple tutorial. To make it more a game than a prototype we have included short level where you can try your dispatcher skills.

You can download it at our blog: https://railroute.bitrich.info/2018/04/17/demo-r0-1-released/

Or you if don't want download .exe from the internet we prepared Unity WebGL build: https://bitrich-info.github.io/railroute/r01/

Levels in Future

Our vision is that the final game will contain a handful of such levels, some longer, some short (puzzle game / unlock scenario). You will be able to compare your performance with the others (global Top 10 list). We are thinking of tools that enable you to create & share own levels, so you will be able to model your home city railways if you want.

These levels will be only one game mode, but the primary game play will be something completely else. Something like career mode where you take care of rail network that you will need to built, upgrade, manage and so on. We will write about it soon!

Feedback

We would like to hear any feedback from the prototype. So feel free to reach us anywhere :-). What's the best score you can reach?

Hello,

With my friend we are creating an indie game and would like to hear early feedback from the community.

Rail Route is a rail network management and operations simulation game. You negotiate contracts, build railroads, set up routes for trains and control the traffic. Unlock features to your dispatcher interface, upgrade railway network elements and research new technologies that allow you to automate the operations!

Planned features:

  • rail network building
  • dynamic traffic contracts
  • research system
    • improve your dispatcher interface
    • research new rail network elements
    • upgrade existing elements
    • unlock automation of the tasks
  • multiple game modes
    • career mode
    • challenge mode
    • puzzle mode
  • in-game editor to create community based levels and scenarios

Latest blog post is about routing of the trains. We are currently preparing a playable prototype. We will release it in a week and want to gather as much feedback as possible. Right now just about our ideas but I'll post an update when the prototype is ready.
