Mashinky is a tycoon strategy game with trains.

Mashinky puts a new twist on top of rock-solid 'Train Tycoon' gaming.

Build and manage your own transport empire in a procedural-generation worlds, offering endless possibilities in a sandbox-style gameplay. The right strategy will always be a different one!

Uniquely combining realistic graphics with old-school construction mode with rules inspired by board games, Mashinky combines the best of both worlds: eye-candy of 3D visuals and addictiveness of isometric gameplay, adding its own unique vibe in the process.

Inspired by classic games from the 90s especially by Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon and Sid Maier's Railroad Tycoon 2. It takes it to the next level with features such as multiplayer and endless modding possibilities, the result is a deep and challenging game made by a fan, for fans, that will make every train sim enthusiast come back for more.

Features:
  • Procedurally generated fully editable sandbox maps with planty of bussiness opportunities
  • 7 historical eras from steam age to modern maglev trains
  • Unique combination of schematic construction view, fully 3D world and driver cabin view where you can drive your trains
  • Upgrades or customizations for everything including stations, industry buildings, depots and trains (by special bonus wagons).
  • At least 16 different cargo types, 28 engines and over 40 different wagons
  • Challenging puzzle-like track laying possible to do flyover crossing, semaphore driven optimized railroad nodes.
  • Sandbox variable quests and subsidies, scripted events.
  • Board game inspired rules, simple to learn and understand but complex with many possibilities
  • Multiplayer for up to 8 players on the map.
  • Massive mod support
  • Smooth 4 seasons transition
  • Original Soul-Jazz soundtrack created by session musician Slikk Tim
  • More to come

This game is developed for more than 7 years by a single man who loves old tycoon games. It is build on very own engine writen in C++ with DirectX which is specifically designed for this type of game.

I have learned a lot while participating in the development of Mafia II, Mafia III and DayZ. Mashinky was always my side project where I used freely all my creativity and passion for game development.

Mashinky game is currently in prealpha stage where first two eras are being polished.
At the end of Q1 2017, there will be Early Access version available with regular updates including new content and polishing.

:D :D ... right, that's something I am rather few months behind :)). Thank you, enjoy the summer too! I will probably enjoy only few weekends. I have no more vacation days at work since I used them on all these conferences and so. But working on Mashinky is something relaxing for me and I love it, so this way I can recharge more than by laying on a beach :)
