What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since the game is still in development, it will be released as an early access title. We will be improving the game with feedback from our users.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan for the early access period to last approximately 3 to 5 years.”

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

“We have planned the following for the full version, but please note that these plans are subject to change and are not a guarantee of future content:

  • Expansion of drivable routes and vehicles
  • Addition of tram control switches
  • Add character and car models
  • Improvement and standardization of graphics
  • Occurrence of random events and accidents
  • Changes in time of day and weather
  • Ride comfort evaluation
  • Display of tourist information etc.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the Early Access version, only 6 of the 25 sections of the Hakodate city tram are recreated. There is only one type of vehicle available for operation (the 8000 series), and random events and accidents have not been implemented yet.”

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

“After the end of early access, we plan to raise the price. Additionally, during the early access period, there is a possibility that the price may increase as more sections and vehicle types are added.”

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

“You can join the TRAMCITY community through the Discord link in the game. We also accept messages via DMs on X.”

About This Game

Game Setting

The game is set on the "Hakodate City Tram" in Hakodate, Hokkaido.
Players assume the role of a tram operator, transporting passengers to their destinations.

Hakodate City Tram Simulation: Officially Approved

Developed with permission from Hakodate City Tram (Department). We received tram size, appearance data, behavior, and speed limit information from Hakodate City Tram. Tram sounds were recorded using actual trams, supervised by Hakodate City Tram staff.

Focus on Sound

Tram sounds are recorded from real trams. We adopted sounds recorded while walking along the tram line and while driving alongside the tram. Under Hakodate City Tram staff supervision, we recorded sounds near the bogies, which are not possible during regular operation. The in-tram announcements use the voice of Naomi Ueda, the actual announcer. For the driver's voice, we used recordings from Jō Hibiki, a former train driver and railway talent active on YouTube and radio.

Attention to Scenery Along the Line

Buildings and stops along the line are individually created.

Focus on Traffic Signals

Traffic signal cycles are based on local measurements. Each game start changes the cycle start time, altering driving patterns.

Developed by a Hakodate Native

The developer spent their childhood and student years in Hakodate. Familiar with the Hakodate City Tram from a young age, they deeply understand how to express its uniqueness. Breaking free from traditional railway simulator concepts, the developer tries various innovative ideas.
