I bought this game very early on and have been patiently waiting for the developers to patch it up to an enjoyable level ever since. And all of this time, I've been nothing but supportive and hopeful, waiting for this to occur. But now, I've finally thrown in the towel and decided it's time to call this donkey for what it is.

All you really have to do is go to the forums and you'll quickly see other peoples' reasons for dissatisfaction with this game. But speaking for myself, the worst aspect of the game is that has an economic model that creates orders/demand for you to start a business, then dries up those orders to ZERO unless you open other businesses (with different products) to develop the surrounding towns to create more demand for your original product. Sound ridiculous? It is. For example, you go from building a successful egg producing business to suddenly, zero demand (due to no one in the world eating eggs anymore because their town is too small, apparently). It takes all of the positive, enjoyable parts of the game, wads it up, lights it on fire, and throws it out the window. Have you ever heard of a business game "on rails"?

I don't know if I've ever even written a negative review on Steam. But, my level of frustration and disappointment in this game has led me for this to be my first. Is this the worst game ever made? No, but it completely misses the mark of creating an enjoyable progression of building your business to be what you want it to be (which to me, is the point of game like this, Railroad Tycoon, etc...). This game is SUCH a missed opportunity and the developers seem to be oblivious and completely disengaged. Not a good way to run your uh... business. So, save yourself the frustration and do not buy this game.

Unfortunately I can't recommend this game. Nice ideea and could be a nice.
But it has so many problems that will keep you from enjoying the game (a patch could solve some of them but... well nobody cares):
- there are anoying bugs (tells me the building isn't conected to the road network but it is).
- the selling process if very very bad. esentially you select what item you want to sell and for what price. the sell will be automatically IF you have available vehicles. If you don't you have to manually select thev ehicle (when it's available). It's not a problem at first, but when you advance into the game it will become a problem and it will keep you from enjoying the game.
- you can;t buy materials so you only can produce them and transport them from one building to another . This will have to be done by a truck that is assigned only for that task or manually. And again, after some time in the game this management becomes hard.

If some of this issues will be addressed i am pretty sure that it will be a pretty nice game. But so far the game resumes to: build, wait, sell, build, wait, sell...

Had potential but....

Sometimes the only way to get ahead seems to be collecting the treasure boxes or whatever they are, however to get them requires endless scrolling around the map. Along with the endless clicking and cycling through your farms/mines etc. to build but your stock numbers it get rather tiresome. Automating does help to a degree.

I thought of writing a review but now i will just tell you what to do and hope you will believe a guy with only 2 achievements left unlocked (temporarily). But i have to add the game is NOT that horrible as you may think on the basis of reviews.
So if you are a fan of a genre and like steam achievements then wait for a discount and buy.
If you like such games and don't care about steam achievements and do not oppose piracy then torrent it
If you are not a fan and just looking for some game to play then look somewhere else.

Still i think this game is worth a try but i vote for not recommended since it still has many drawbacks

The good: You can manage a business with multiple industries, reasonably quick to learn, achievements give skill points that can be used for upgrades, average.
The bad: Glosses over a lot of detail (micromanagement), extremely repetitive, minimal sense of accomplishment or reward, automation is sub par, game feels cheap.
This game could have been a lot more. Sadly it's a lackluster title that will merely wet your appetite for an industry simulator that we've all been craving. It's worth closer to $10-15. Would recommend Cities in Motion 2 or Euro Truck Simulator 2 for a better executed experience.
