Rail Route is a management/tycoon/puzzle game based on railroad dispatching. Control the traffic, build out your own network, then optimize and expand. Unlock new technologies, upgrade the infrastructure, and automate operations! Design and share your own maps with the in-game editor.

Features

In early access, there will be two game modes available:

Endless Maps

Endless Maps, as the name implies, allows you to play the game endlessly. Your goal is not just to get each train to its destination on-time, but also to expand your system, add new trains, and optimize everything as best you can within the limits of the map. Build track to new stations, accept new train contracts, upgrade your system through multiple technology trees, and see how your railroad grows from a tiny three-station system into a sprawling creation that runs like clockwork.

  • Accept different kind of contracts as a traffic on your railroad
  • Operate trains according their timetables
  • Expand your rail network, build new useful components and buildings
  • Earn rewards – money & experience points
  • Unlock upgrades – improve your technologies, interface and discover new building components
  • Automate – build various sensors and automate the operations

Scored Maps

Trains and track are set in stone! See how well you can keep up with the train timetables.

  • Dynamic scoring system
  • Hand-made timetables – famous and imaginary junctions / layouts
  • Be on time and dispatch the trains

In-Game Map Editor

The game comes with a built-in editor that allows you to fine-tune your own map, whether it’s scored or endless. Recreate your favorite junction, build your hometown from scratch or design a railroad of your own. You can then share your map through the steam workshop.
