Retro fans and casual gamers alike are in for a treat, as Transport Tycoon makes its glorious return to our screens. This time though, Origin8 Technologies and Chris Sawyer’s 31X Ltd have been working away on a smaller version of the game – the new Transport Tycoon will hit iOS and Android platforms in late 2013.
Labelled as the “new standard” of management simulations when it launched way back in 1994, and still one of the best examples of the genre, Transport Tycoon is an unfamiliar franchise for many modern gamers. The first of the Tycoon series is set to return, carefully and lovingly revised for touchscreen platforms, and promising all of the entertainment and delight of the original game.
Of course, original creator Chris Sawyer is still onboard, designing and directing this new mobile effort, while veteran developers Origin8 have worked out the kinks in the original simulation code.
Claiming to be the “deepest, richest simulation game yet seen on mobile”, this new Transport Tycoon will hit later this year.
