Train Fever delivers an advanced railroad business simulation set against a backdrop of sophisticated randomly generated 3D environments and lovingly crafted models. Players can step back to the golden years of the industrial revolution with steam trains dating from the 1840’s, or fast forward to the powerful locomotives and sprawling cities of the modern day. Establish a transport company, build infrastructure, buy rolling stock, manage the lines and watch the world evolve dynamically as the steel-wheeled empire flourishes.

The team at Urban Games have poured their affection and knowledge of the genre into Train Fever and it shows. Painstaking attention to detail is combined with a desire to add the kinds of features they always wanted to see themselves, such as no grid, advanced passenger simulation and a seamless 360° camera. The result is a train sim to be reckoned with.

Development of Train Fever has been supported by a successful crowdfunding campaign on Gambitious, with the game currently in closed beta: https://gambitious.com/projects/2496-train-fever
