About This Game

What was supposed to be just a regular commute took a strange turn after a mysterious train tunnel caused everyone to forget something important. Where is everyone headed? What is really going on? Is it even a real train? Whatever happened, it’s up to you to step up and solve the mystery.

You won’t be doing it alone either - there are dozens of other passengers on board who all want to know where they’re going. But not everyone will want to work together either. It’s up to you to resolve differences, using a card-based battle-of-wits system, where the goal is to resolve the conflict and find common ground.

The personality of the 🐞ladybug🐞 is defined by the choices you make in the first train car. One of seven potential companions will even join you on your journey, an unlikely ally who’s your polar opposite.

Beyond that? A diverse collection of characters to meet, greet, and talk up! Every one of them is an adorable critter, with distinct personalities, vibes, and possibly…quests! From a 🕷️shy spider to a real Queen Bee🐝, everyone you meet will leave an impression. Especially if you run into the biker wasps and their gang…

Conflicts inevitably arise when dozens of bugs are stuck on a train heading in an unknown direction. Tracks of Thought is all about resolving conflicts through empathy and communication. Pick your cards and try to find common ground with others to solve problems together!

Will it take logic and reasoning? Being sensitive and caring? Inspiring and charismatic? Find out what makes others tick and overcome their reservations to find the missing train driver!

It’s an eventful journey to the Control Room. Each carriage is a world unto itself, all with their own passengers and challenges to overcome - from finding lost belongings to instigating a worker revolution. Every encounter may yield little nuggets of wisdom that will help our Ladybug on a fruitful journey of self-discovery and reflection.
