News, Apple, Android, iPad, iPhone, Mobile
Chris Sawyer's 31X Ltd and Origin8 Technologies Ltd are proud to announce that a revitalized version of the gaming classic Transport Tycoon will be arriving on iOS and Android platforms in late 2013.
Upon its original release in 1994, Transport Tycoon was heralded as the new standard in management simulation games, remaining a high watermark in the genre almost two decades later. Now, years after making the "Tycoon" appellation a recognized shorthand for real time empire building games, the original classic is poised to return, painstakingly revised for touch screen devices, and retaining every element of what made the original such a prestigious and enduring piece of entertainment.
Transport Tycoon for mobile platforms has been designed and directed by legendary game designer Chris Sawyer, the original creator of Transport Tycoon, Transport Tycoon Deluxe, and Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 & 2. Veteran developers Origin8 have recreated and restored Sawyer's original simulation code, resulting in the deepest, richest simulation game yet seen on mobile.
Praise for the original Transport Tycoon (PC) included:
"Buy it. Classic games like this don't come around often." 91% - PC Gamer
"A pioneer of the business simulation genre." - Giant Bomb
