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

Currently, we are in a prototyping phase and we will post updates about the progress of the game development.

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.

Thanks for any feedback.

UPDATE1: Playable demo of Rail Route is out! Note that it's first polished prototype. We wanted it more like a game, so we added one scored level into it Smiley. Final game will be A LOT different in terms of game play.

But any feedback is more than welcome! Can you reach score of 27? Download at our blog:

UPDATE2: New demo with dynamic content & contracts release!
