What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There’s a lot of players out there who loved to build these type of train sets when they were younger and it would be great to hear about what restricted them from building the very best train set they could. Having the community suggest objects will ultimately produce a much more interesting game. The game is very much a sandbox at the moment, but some would prefer a more structured experience and we'd like to hear from them what objectives or challenges they'd like to face in this environment.””

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We cannot say with certainty as we anticipate the suggestions and feedback from the community to see where they want us to take the game.”

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

“Many more objects to place in the environment, new environments to explore, objectives to complete and we are also looking towards more customization options for trains, buildings etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The games track building systems are nearly complete, Players can operate and drive the train, there are a few objectives and a number of items to place which are both cosmetic and interactive.”

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

“The price may increase with substantial content updates. We will do our best to let the community know in advance so that they are aware of any changes to the games price.”

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

“The game in its current state is designed to be quite modular. This means that the community can suggest object ideas in such a large number, we can then whittle them down into some great ideas that we would not have come up with ourselves. We will also be looking to support Steam Workshop which will allow us to play tracks created by other players and see what kind of exciting sets the community build.”

New Update Now Live! Emergency services, Key rebinding and lots of fixes!

:HealUp: New controls menu and Key rebinding
The old controls menu has been replaced with a brand new one with a nicer layout and proper descriptions for every entry. It also allows you to reassign keys for mouse/keyboard, with some new extra options to split up keys which do multiple things by default. So if for example you wanted a key specifically for resetting the train (without having to hold it) you can now set that.



:HealUp: New graphics menu options
  • Field of view sliders to change the horizontal FoV for building and train driving.



  • Resolution options


:HealUp: Emergency response vehicles
Along with the usual vehicle headlights, these also have a set of emergency lights which can be toggled in the same way (left click on the vehicle after placing it)

End of Year Update

:HealUp: Bedroom (Night)
The Bedroom now has a matching Night scene full of Christmas decorations. I'm not sure if these decorations will stay all year round - happy to hear thoughts on that!

A constant shower of starry loveliness.
These are manually turned on and off by left clicking on the rocket.



:HealUp: Gingerbread carriages
A matching set of carriages for the gingerbread train, finally!



:HealUp: Looking forward to 2019

About This Game

Tracks is a beautiful toy train set builder which gives you the tools to play without limits.

Jump into an expansive sandbox and lay down track pieces, create bridges and build towns with Tracks’ easy to get to grips with gameplay.

Once you’re ready, hop into the driver’s seat and ride your little train in first-person view – controlling the speed and direction, as you ride the rails.



Start with a pre-made environment, be it a modern lounge or a night time Winter wonderland, or jump into an entirely blank world canvas. Add trees and foliage from various world biomes, buildings, stations, animals, vehicles, decor and more. Customise your world further by altering terrain and fog colours. Make your train your own, selecting colours and patterns.

Play with boosters, musical bells and ramps to make your train set an exciting ride! For a more complex railway system, add junctions and even introduce multiple trains.



From sprawling green countryside to desert towns, and atmospheric foggy industry sites to vibrant circus setups, countless options await you and your train set. Let your imagination thrive and build the toy train set of your dreams.
