DARK TRAIN – DEEP INTO THE CITY 2 (UPDATE)



Dear passengers, spring has come and Dark Train's journey is now lined by new levels!

TRAILER:
https://youtu.be/cx_wYlW6KUc
FIRST!
Frozen to the metal event rooms and places are still accessible, but there is nothing you can do until next winter. Some of achived souvenirs like “damask knife” or “golden pig” remain in engine room until the game is completed.

IMPORTANT!
From now steam whistle “trumpet” can be mounted to the main DT chimney (just let Ann play's the Organ for awhile). So we can really talk about a train now!



RUMMORS:
Chimney sweepers guild attached a mechanical “splitter” outside one of the factories. “The splitter” could temporarily release Ann from her bound. Now there is no doubt that Ann becomes their important ally.

FIX:
Outdoor events (windows + periscope) can no longer be repeated. Once the plot is finished and the train get rewarded event is definately done.

Thank you for your support!

Our story follows the journey of the inventor D. W. Tagrezbung and the mysterious contract from unknown client which he received years ago. Even as a child, he created a functional model of the universe and throughout his life drew attention to himself thanks to a number of significant inventions. At an advanced age of his peaceful life he received the last big contract with a very strange assignment. The client requested the creation of a model of the human world that embraces changeable weather and civilization. What he did not want to be part of the model was the human face or even people themselves. The actual challenge was presented by creation of transportation that would be capable of delivering the order. Inhospitable territory stretching between the client and the inventor is for centuries connected only by rail. Therefore D. W. decided to create a self-sufficient train with four wagons where each wagon will contain one familiar environment from his world. Eventually D. W. Tagrezbung devoted the rest of his life to the client's order. The day the train was finally ready to go, the famous inventor died.



In every steam card you can uncover how we made particular parts of the game out of paper.
