What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The goal is to get this game in front of people to see what they think about it and which direction they would prefer it go.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“There is no set schedule. My plan is to improve the game until I run out of ideas. Somewhere along the way a version will be arbitrarily declared version 1.0. This should happen within a year.”

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

“Planned future features include a map editor, randomly generated maps, an event system for scenarios, improved AI, and a colorblind mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently there are seven scenarios. As the core mechanics of the game are all complete these seven scenarios can be played normally and completed. Players can build lanes, make deliveries, upgrade their equipment, and develop local economies. The scenarios have differing objectives. There is AI that is capable of playing the game and is intended to get in the player's way by gobbling up opportunities before the player can get to them.”

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

“The price will gradually increase as more mechanics are implemented and more scenarios are added. Getting in early will support development as well as allow you to get the game on the cheap.”

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

“Community discussion will influence how the game develops.”

About This Game

The steam train revolutionized transportation on Earth. It was only a matter of time before the same thing happened in space with different technology. Take control of a company building jump lanes through the timeline of their development. Will you build a successful company or fall behind your competition? Each turn you must decide between expanding your network, exploiting economic opportunities, or upgrading your hardware. Be careful which decisions you make; too much time upgrading may allow others to get the best opportunities first.

The core of the game is a series of scenarios with a set of specific goals to achieve within a certain time frame. Each round you receive three turns and must choose what to do carefully. Will you expand your network, implement new technologies, or focus on deliveries? Each time you take a turn any competition also gets to take a turn which may cause them to get to the best opportunities before you. However you must also consider profits in the long run. Profits are not immediate and also decay over time.

The primary inspiration is train-based board games. If you enjoy those then this game was made for you.
