Vehicles have already been introduced here. This time, we show them in action.
The following video illustrates how they look and feel in-game. We present an old steam train (Norris D 1/3, 1847), carriages and freight transport (1865), a street car (Be 4/6 Mirage, 1966) and a freight train (BR V 100, 1958).
All scenes have been recorded in-game and could be reproduced when playing the game.
Graphics, game-play and sound are not final. Also, many details are still missing. For instance, street car catenary is still missing, there is only one model for people, and animation of people and freight at stations is still very minimal. We will handle these (and more) details prior to release, but they have not been top priority yet.
At this time we would also like to announce our partners for sound effects and music.
Orchestral Media Developments is responsible for sound effects. This is a great cooperation because Orchestral Media Developments is very experienced with tycoon games, since they have also produced the sound effects in “Chris Sawyer’s Locomotion” back in 2004.
DALA Studios composes and produces the soundtrack of the game. DALA Studios will produce a soundtrack with a high artistic value. The style of the music will not be too far away from the very well-received Transport Tycoon soundtrack.
