Since its release in September last year, Train Fever has been sold more than 100.000 times. We are incredibly happy that our debut title was received so well and we would like to take the opportunity to express our thankfulness to everyone who contributed to this success story.
In particular we wanted to express a big thank you to the modding community (most important: www.train-fever.net). More than 1.000 mods have been developed and make the game varied and long-living. It’s exciting to have such an active and motivated modding community and we are heavily impressed by all the creative creations.
Similar respect and thankfulness is addressed to all YouTube authors. An uncountable amount of YouTube Let’s Play’s demonstrates game-play and have inspired many followers. These contributions had a very positive effect on sales and they also helped us to get a good understanding of how people actually play the game.
This said, we wanted to let you know that we are still improving Train Fever and for sure there will be additional game updates. However, because we also started working on our next game title, Train Fever updates will be less frequent in future. Therefore, we kindly ask you for a bit of patience in this regard.
Today we can tell you that our next game title will be a transport simulation game again. Development has already started and we are currently finalizing the budget and game design. We are very confident that you like our plans and we would love to share the exact plan with you. However, because the plan is not 100% final yet we will announce details at a later point in time.
Thanks to our successful debut title our company is expanding. In future, seven people will work at Urban Games. One particular highlight is that one of our employees will work as a community manager. As a consequence, you can expect that our communication and community support will be much better in future.
Finally, let us mention that currently there are two open positions. Urban Games is looking for a full-time software engineer as well as a 2D / 3D artist intern. If you are interested in one of these positions, please find the job descriptions here.
The whole Urban Games team say thanks again for your interest and contribution!
