Patch 1.1 on the Experimental Branch!

Industrialists! Hello!

Paid lots of attention to the feedback, and I know you guys are a bit disappointed with how the AI doesn't seem to add much, or how the Logistics keep doing whatever they want, so we've been working non-stop on patch 1.1, and here it is in all its glory. Note that we are not done yet, with more to come. Here are the changes:

Main Features

Warehouses can directly supply shops (this can be disabled if you want)

Can buyout other entities' permits (and the AI will offer you cash for yours)

Warehouses now clearly state if and with what Depots they are connected to

Major changes to Logistcs:
  • Prices for Logistic Requests have skyrocketed, but the capacity is much higher now.
    • It's all more according to how big bulky transportation vehicles should work.
    • Make sure the vehicles are full and do NOT use Logistic Requests for raw stuff, or you'll go bankrupt super quickly.
  • In short:
    • Automated Warehouse trucks are very cheap
    • Normal trucks are good for very short range (under 50 tiles)
    • Warehouse dispatch trucks are good for short range (under 125 tiles)
    • Trains are expensive to set up, but are fast and good over 200 tiles
    • Boats are cheap and high capacity, ideal for long distances (over 250 tiles over water)
    • Zeppelins are very expensive and meant for when a player has a lot of money and needs Products moved in as a short distance as possible.

“I’ve transformed into a number-crunching management mogul.”
PC Games N

“A beautiful blend between SimCity and Factorio”
The Digital FIx

“Rise of Industry has that peculiar time vacuum effect, capable of instilling a different form of consciousness in which your perception of chronology dissipates and all of a sudden it’s the early hours of the morning and you’re sat in your pants, bleary-eyed, meticulously planning a trade route for radio receivers.”
The Indie Game Website

About This Game





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 and random events keeping you on your toes and cash flowing in.
  • Balance environmental impact with productivity, trying to meet your neighbouring town's demands.
