Sweet Transit is Transport Tycoon-like Game From Factorio Co-creator

Ernestas Norvaišas, or Factorio's co-creator, is working on an economic strategy game called Sweet Transit, in which we will build a network of train connections and develop adjacent towns.

SWEET TRANSIT IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Developer: Ernestas Norvaišas
  2. Publisher: Team17
  3. Genre: economic strategy
  4. Platform: PC
  5. Release Date: 2022 (Early Access)

Here's an interesting proposal for fans of the iconic Transport Tycoon. One of the developers of Factorio is working on his own project, titled Sweet Transit. In the game we will deal with constructing railroad connections and developing adjacent cities.

The creator in question is Ernestas Norvaišas and his first project under the new label will be published by Team17. Sweet Transit is going to be released exclusively on PC. An early version of the game is scheduled to debut this year in Steam's Early Access. The full release is planned for late 2022, but the developer warns that it may be delayed as version 1.0 will only be released when it is ready.

In Sweet Transit we'll be building and developing towns where trains are the only form of transportation besides pedestrian traffic. We will start with a single center, and over time we will build many metropolises, between which people and goods will move by rail.

While waiting for Sweet Transit it's worth to play the free OpenTTD. This open-source game is a heavily modernized and improved version of the classic Transport Tycoon Deluxe.

During the game we will have to carefully plan the railroad network, not only to make full use of available space and reduce journey times as much as possible, but also to make it fit the landscape and the needs of inhabitants - both workers and the rest of the population of the towns.

The player's task is to build stations and platforms, as well as develop railroad technology. We'll start with steam engines, and over time we'll switch to diesel engines. Our duties will also include developing the economy of towns and satisfying the needs of their inhabitants.

Sweet Transit will emphasize mods. From the moment of release in early access, players will be able to install fan creations, and the game will offer support for Steam Workshop.
