What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Railroads is still incomplete and only has a few hours of content. We wish to roll out more chapters and content over time. There is no definitive end to the campaign yet. We may roll out as many chapters as we see fit, starting with the three we have planned so far.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Railroads will exit early access when the next two chapters have been completed. As most of our core design has been completed, our schedule is to exit early access and release a full version by mid 2020.”

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

Each chapters contains different game mechanics for you to explore.
We have three chapters planned for Railroads:
  • The Birdman (completed)
  • The Necromancer
  • The Dead Sea

For the second chapter of the Necromancer; we aim to explore explosives such as land mines, tnt and new weaponry themed to fit. We are unsure yet of how many rooms we plan to roll out in the second chapter but it is planned to be lengthier than the first. The Dead Sea needs further development and will be published to the community when we have an idea.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first completed chapter mostly revolves around simple melee combat, the minecart and of course the 4 rooms.
There is at least about 2-3 hours worth of content for you to explore:
  • 4 Rooms
  • At least 5 weapons which can also be upgraded
  • 25+ Achievements
  • Each playthrough will be generated differently thanks to our procedural code

After you complete a chapter, we intentionally lock the saves so that when we release new content you do not run into any scaling issues. We recommend making a new save if you'd like to keep playing and avoiding the boss fights.”

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

“Money raised will support the future development of Railroads. The cost of Railroads will increase over time. We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Please forward any issues, suggestions/ideas that you would like to see in Railroads
All community feedback is important to us and encouraged on our public channels.
We have a Discord channel where our team is active on a daily basis”

About This Game

What is Railroads?
Developed by a team of two, a new adventure awaits for you in the Railroads.

The game is a campaign of chapters consisting of unique horrors and challenges for you to explore.

Chapter 1 - The Birdman

You will face challenges and eventually come across the Necromancer's experiment Birdman.

Chapter 2 - The Necromancer
​Uncover the mysterious identity responsible for all the hostile undead in the Railroads.​ This chapter is currently in development and will be released incrementally. A sneakpeak of the chapter (first room) has been released so far.

Chapter 3 - The Dead Sea
​Sail the underground waters on a raft and encounter horrifying creatures underwater. This is a planned feature and is currently not available.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

When the limbs of miners are blown off, blood splat decals may paint across the floor. There is no more detail to that, the limbs fall off like lego.
There are also some bloody particle effects when an enemy is attacked.
