This is a real railroad game, not just a strategy game that happens to involve railroads. If you want to hop on a plane, car or ship, hop on another game. This game is about trains for people who love trains. Everything about the game is centered around an authentic look and feeling of the railways. Period video and pictures are interlaced with the game. The design and interface are true to the character of the fabled late 1800's railroads. A.I. opponents are based on real people. And all maps are real (based on satellite photography from US Geological Service and other sources).
The sequel to the legendary Railroad Tycoon, Railroad Tycoon II, puts gamers in control of 34 cargo types and 51 train engines from around the world. Players can span the ages from 1804 to beyond 2000 while establishing transportation empires and outmaneuvering fellow robber barons. Scenarios allow for world-wide exploration and expansion. A sophisticated economy and stock market for Wall Street plunderers lets players test their entrepreneurial prowess.
Railroad Tycoon II is based upon PopTop's proprietary S3D engine which allows for highly-detailed 3D graphics and renderings. The game is the first game developed exclusively for 1024 x 768 resolution, in either 16 bit or 8 bit color. The game will support multiplayer play over LANs, modems and the Internet.
