What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There’s a lot of players out there who loved to build these type of train sets when they were younger and it would be great to hear about what restricted them from building the very best train set they could. Having the community suggest objects will ultimately produce a much more interesting game. The game is very much a sandbox at the moment, but some would prefer a more structured experience and we'd like to hear from them what objectives or challenges they'd like to face in this environment.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We can not say with certainty as we anticipate the suggestions and feedback from the community to see where they want us to take the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Many more objects to place in the environment, new environments to explore, objectives to complete and we are also looking towards more customization options for trains, buildings etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The games track building systems are nearly complete, Players can operate and drive the train, there are a few objectives and a number of items to place which are both cosmetic and interactive.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may increase with substantial content updates. We will do our best to let the community know in advance so that they are aware of any changes to the games price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The game in its current state is designed to be quite modular. This means that the community can suggest object ideas in such a large number, we can then whittle them down into some great ideas that we would not have come up with ourselves. We will also be looking to support Steam Workshop which will allow us to play tracks created by other players and see what kind of exciting sets the community build.”

Tracks Steam Page Is Live



Hello everyone,

The Steam page for Tracks is now live! This is exciting because we are a step closer to the games release. The game has been in development for a several months and if you want to keep up to date with the games development progress, make sure to add it to your wishlist.

Don't know how to do that? watch this Gif :D



Jacksepticeye, Nerdcubed, BaronVonLetsPlay and more have played a several month old build of tracks. The latest internal build has changed so much and we're looking forward to seeing what new players will think of the game as it continues to develop.



We've also had a lovely article by Destructoid, some of the comments and thoughts from the writer and community we're looking into. Maybe one day we'll see Thomas the Tank Engine available inside Tracks, but we shall see ;)

What we're looking to do over the next few months is add to the game by introducing some new mechanics and objects. If you have any suggestions to help us, get involved by joining the discussions forum. Share your thoughts, ideas, what you want to see and we'll do our best to get back to you.

We hope many of you will join us as we continue to develop Tracks - The Train Set Game.

About This Game

Track Building


Build the train sets of your childhood dreams with an easy-to-use editor. Just indicate where you want to build and Tracks does all the hard work for you, effortlessly mapping out turns, junctions and crossings under your command.

  • Add houses and trees to create your own little villages
  • Place unique track shapes and configurations beyond what you would normally find in a physical train sets
  • Physics objects to play with
  • Interactive mechanisms like bridges and lifts give you more freedom in moving around the environment
  • Play in free-mode to build at your leisure without any set objectives

Ride the rails


Once you’ve created your rail network, you can ride along from inside your train, in first person. You’ll have full control of your vehicle in this view and will be able to adjust the train’s speed and direction. Your train’s weight and momentum are simulated, challenging you to maintain a steady but efficient speed while transporting heavy cargo.

Objectives


Build your own train sets at will, or enjoy the set game modes which boast a variety of objectives for you to complete. For instance, Tracks challenges you to design a rail system that accommodates passengers’ commuting needs. Or transport cargo and build the most efficient rail network to complete objectives in the fastest time possible.

Environments


Varied environments await, acting as playgrounds in Tracks: The Train Set Game. Go off the rails, ride along the furniture, and bump into objects to activate them. Each environment contains unique features for you to experiment with and incorporate into your track designs.

Share


We are currently researching Steam Workshop support so players can share their tracks with other players online. We will update this section once we have a good idea of the functionality available after a few tests!



Tracks: The Train Set Game is everything the child in you has ever wanted. There are plenty of train games out there, but this is the only nostalgia-filled train simulator you’ll find on Steam.
