What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With Rise of Industry we're set on resurrecting the good old industrial tycoon games of the 90s, with modern twists. The game is still under development, and major game-changing updates are constantly rolled out. With your feedback and support we can make this game a real classic of the genre. Made by fans, for fans!

You can take a look at the road map for an idea of everything that is planned from now until full release: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JPCt-WzGuWC0ZPiQSAyNmGp9_jWUjB1r

PLEASE NOTE: Rise of Industry is an incomplete game and is currently under development.


With Early Access we will make it even better and we will work very closely with the community to improve the game as much as possible.

We want to make the best and most enjoyable experience possible, and that is not possible if we are in a vacuumed environment. We want to place the game in Early Access at an early stage, so we can get constant feedback and suggestions so that we can deliver the game that you deserve.


We’ve already been working hard on the game and we want it to become a modern classic. Your valued feedback in Early Access will ensure that we make this a reality.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is for a Q3-Q4 2018 full release, but expect big updates on a regular basis, with new content and features, plus a lot of bug fixes. You will be kept fully up-to-date should anything change and it will always be for the good of the game - we won’t rush the game for financial reasons - that’s not what we’re about.”

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

“The full version will have a lot more products to be produced, more factories, more gatherers, new events, bigger maps, pollution, an enhanced tutorial, map creation plus much much more. Modding support will also be added so you can customise and create almost anything in the game to suit your playstyle. The game will also be fully balanced & polished on full release.

Only English language is available at the moment but French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian and Simplified Chinese will all be added before full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is perfectly stable, and constantly evolving. You can build your empire with gatherers, factories and infrastructure. Arrange trade by road, rail, sea or sky, and react swiftly as the economy continuously shifts. The campaign mode will offer you a structured challenge, while contracts and events will keep you on your toes.

With all the planned additions, it will feel a totally new experience every couple of months.”

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

“During Early Access, the game will be priced lower to gain a wide amount of feedback with the price going up on full release. We want as much quality feedback as possible so we can make the full release as good as it can be.”

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

“We have always thought that community involvement is key as we strive to develop the best game possible. All ideas and feedback will be genuinely considered and any changes will reflect what the community wants from the game. No matter if the community is big or small, we’ll try to read every comment, email, thread and video you guys make, so together we can take this awesome game to new heights!”

But for now, enjoy patch 6.3!

New 6.2 Patch in the Experimental Branch!

Time for a big patch with lots of changes and improvements! Note that even if you can continue your 6.1 save, I strongly suggest you start fresh. Many changes in the Tech Tree and heavy changes in the economy. A big addition, is the Undo button: if the game is paused and you place a building, simply hit Ctrl+Z and it's removed! Works with many buildings as well.

Please let me know how you feel with the huge amount of changes to the economy!

Reviews

“It is not often that we walk out of a Gamescom meeting saying “Wow!”, but we did with Rise of Industry. We saw amazing depth and equally amazing performance and some really clever and fun ideas.”
Hooked Gamers

“Rise of Industry features just enough realistic detail to making zooming on my little towns a joy, and just enough abstraction that I never lost sight of how all my trade routes and harvesting operations fit together. It's beautiful.”
PC Gamer

“This is exactly how an Early Access release should be handled.”
Hardcore Gamer

About This Game

NOTE: Rise of Industry is still in development. Please only buy the game if you want to support its ongoing development based on what is in the game now – not what might be in the game on release.





With Rise of Industry we're set on resurrecting the good old industrial tycoon games of the 90s, with modern twists. The game is still under development, and major game-changing updates are constantly rolled out. With your feedback and support we can make this game a real classic of the genre. Made by fans, for fans!

We are always adding new features to the game and are currently working hard on the next update for Rise of Industry (Alpha 6). We have listened to community feedback and are implementing big changes to increase the enjoyment of the game.

DEVELOPER PROMISE: We are extremely active in the community and we will always be open with our plans for the future of the game. However, we need your help to improve the game further – you can do so by visiting our Discord channel or on the Steam Community where each and every post is read. Thank you.





Rise of Industry is a strategic tycoon game that puts you in the shoes of an early 20th-century industrialist. Build and manage your growing empire in a living, breathing, and procedurally generated world that is constantly evolving and adapting to your playstyle.

As a budding entrepreneur, you will build factories, construct efficient transport lines, move raw materials, produce finished goods, and arrange trade with the world's developing cities, providing them with the resources they need to flourish - for as they grow and prosper, so do you.

Designed with an eye towards both accessibility and depth, Rise of Industry has enough strategic complexity and replayability to satisfy the most experienced fans of the genre, while its simple-to-understand mechanics ensure that new players will love it as well.





  • Experience tailored for every player - Specialise in just trading, production, gathering or any combination and research your way to bigger and better things.
  • Use PR & Marketing to gain favour (or repair damage) with your business partners.
  • Choose from over 100 individual products and manage the manufacturing process from harvesting raw materials all the way to delivering the end product to local stores & townspeople
  • Build and manage a solid transportation network to enable the efficient transfer of goods via plentiful trucks, speedy trains and high capacity airships.
  • Be prepared for fierce competition – Advanced town and city A.I., make for an intelligent and changing game world so you won’t be the only one looking for the best deal.
  • Town personalities – adapt a suitable approach for every town or face their economic backlash.
  • Huge, procedurally generated maps mean that you’ll always have room to expand your empire into whether in testing scenarios or sandbox mode where imagination is your only limit.
  • Be quick to adapt to the current business climate with contracts, random events and quests keeping you on your toes and cash flowing in.
  • Balance environmental impact with productivity, trying to meet your neighbouring town's demands.
  • Ever-changing biomes will present different environmental challenges as you aim to make the most out of the map - Lose potential oil reserves as polluted tundra melts into fields or fertile grassland wilts and dies into arid desert.
