Train Fever will be released in May 2014
Train Fever campaign goes into the home stretch
Description
Train Fever is a railroad-focused business simulation game with role-playing elements. In other words, it's a modern-day Transport Tycoon with procedural content and a sophisticated city simulation.

"It’s the year 1850, and there are great times ahead! Establish a transport company and be its manager. Build infrastructure such as railways and stations, purchase transportation vehicles and manage lines. Fulfill the people’s needs and watch cities evolve dynamically.

Classical role-playing elements let you identify with your game character. Earn achievements and collect experience points, then use them to train your skills. Four basic skills directly affect game-deciding parameters such as access to infrastructure and vehicle market, maintenance rates, access to statistics and intelligent organization, and much more. Devise your own strategy!”


Train Fever runs on an engine specifically developed for this game. The engine has a great innovative scope and is specialized in procedural content and urban simulation. A key point is the fact that there is no grid that game objects have to be aligned to, allowing for a great degree of freedom.

Features:
  • Randomly generated, modifiable terrain with realistic dimensions
  • Advanced passenger simulation
  • Dynamically simulated urban development
  • Procedurally generated buildings
  • No grid - that is, the game world is not limited to 90 (or 45) degree angles
  • Vehicles from more than 150 years of transportation history
  • Four distinct characters
  • Comprehensive skill system
  • Detailed 3D graphics
  • Freely adjustable zoom factor

Train Fever was funded by crowdfunding on March 20 2013. It is the first successful project funded on the platform Gambitious.com.

The game will be released in May 2014.

More information about the game can be found on our website http://www.train-fever.com/, where you can also find newsletter registration and official forums. We kindly invite you to discuss everything related to the game in the official forums.

Put other types of cargo as well, not just passengers. This will be a great simulator game. I'll buy it. :D

Thank you for developing this game as I have been missing this type of game since Sid Meier's Railroads (2006) and am happy to buy this game when it is released to support you making sequels in the future with improved AIs and enhanced features.
