Railways : A Railroad management game in development for the Amstrad CPC


Before I even read the description of the game, just looking at the above image gave me nostalgic memories back to the 1990's game ' Railroad Tycoon ' by Microprose Software Inc. It was a game in which you managed your own Railroad company from placing train lines, creating stations and making as much profit as possible via goods or passengers. And that's basically where this new game ' Railways ' is headed as it too is a Railroad management game, but this is in development for the Amstrad CPC and developed by Trewdbal.


Using the development software CPCtelera, Trewdbal has felt that management games are under-represented on the CPC and the fact that he likes trains. Although this game is in a very early stage, the map is procedurally generated, you can move the cursor around with arrow keys, press enter for an in game menu, you can add/rotate stations with the space bar and build railways and destroy tiles. The only downside other than it's not a complete game, is the fact it currently does not work on an Amstrad CPC 464, so a 128 is needed.

The code to the game is available on his guthub account
