Designed with an eye towards both accessibility and depth, Rise of Industry (formerly known as Project Automata) takes inspiration from classic games like Industry Giant, Transport Tycoon, Anno, and Factorio. There’s enough strategic complexity and replayability to satisfy the most experienced lovers of the genre, while its user friendly mechanics ensure that new players will love it as well.

Some big features have been added again to keep Rise of Industry moving forward:


  • Rivers and Dirt Roads: a couple of little things to make your maps stand out a bit more!
  • Revamped Town AI: now with Types & Personalities, depending on what resources are nearby, and they've been trained to do Town-to-Town-to-State trade. Expect lots of AI trucks scuttling around!
  • Train Signalling: a first iteration of a very complex system, you can now begin to customise your train empire with one-way tracks to try and prevent crashes.


  • Truck Depot: cheap alternative to Train Terminals.
  • Warehouse: a new type of building, designed to be placed in the middle of industrial hubs.
  • Plantation Farm: where else can you grow Cocoa and Sugar?
  • Lots of new recipes: completely revamped the food industry. Time to make some Chocolate Liquor and Candied Apples!



Great! Keep up the good work!
