What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“VR train simulation of this kind has never been done before, and as a small team we think early community feedback helps us greatly in keeping the game on the right track. With that said, Derail Valley has many years of work behind it, already offering 50+ hours of gameplay.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're nearing the level of quality we wanted to have at launch, so Derail Valley should not stay in Early Access much longer. That said, there's a lot of features and content that we hope to continue to add with community help, even after the game has left Early Access:”

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

“The game is almost there! We aim to improve a few remaining kinks and add some more content and features before releasing. As said earlier, a lot of extra features and content are something we want to do post release with community help and can be seen here:”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Derail Valley currently offers stable and fun 50+ hours of gameplay in VR and PC, and is aimed to leave Early Access relatively soon.”

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

“The price will very likely be increased when Derail Valley leaves Early Access. More information about that will be announced in the future.”

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

“We love community feedback! There are countless suggestions that we've received from community and implemented or plan to, let alone bug fixes. Being a small team, we find each comment, forum discussion, gameplay video or stream very helpful for us in deciding what to do next. Thank you to all of you who helped us make Derail Valley a better game!”

About This Game

Drive massive trains through beautiful, challenging natural environments. Make deliveries of cargo between various industries spread across a vast open world. Earn money, buy new licenses and advance your career as a train engineer, all in a seamless, emergent playthrough.

What makes Derail Valley different?

You can feel the physics. Walk without restrictions, in and out of locomotives, changing them as you see fit. Couple and uncouple trains as you complete your deliveries. Choose new deliveries freely. Take many at once if you will. Service your trains after derailing. Do this all spontaneously, and at any point you can save and continue later.

Built from the ground up for Virtual Reality - optional

Derail Valley fully supports playing on a regular PC, using mouse and keyboard on a flat screen, but virtual reality is where it really shines. In VR you can, for the first time ever, truly be inside train cabs and operate controls with your own hands. Derail Valley supports all major PC VR headsets, such as:
