What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game has been in development in-house for 2 years now. We really want to get the game out in the public to gather the valuable feedback needed to further polish this game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With the help of our community we expect to release the game in probably a year to a year and half.”

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

“These are the planned features:
  • gameplay improvements, based on community feedback.
  • traffic simulation improvements, i.e. more traffic variety.
  • more types of missions.
  • multiplayer support. The game is actually built as a multiplayer game but we want to test the gameplay mechanics in singleplayer first. Adding multiplayer should be relatively straightforward.
  • more environmental variety, i.e. more biome and city types.
  • ability to build tunnels.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the game's mechanics as mentioned in the About This Game section are fully working and the game is stable. Please refer to the About This Game section for more details.”

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

“The price may be raised with some of the major updates, like the addition of multiplayer support.”

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

“We will actively participate in the discussions taking place around the game and make changes accordingly to improve game balance and fun. We will also consult the users to determine the order of the items in our roadmap.”

Next update

Hi guys,

Here's an update on what I'm currently doing.

Currently I'm slowly but steadily working on the multi-player mode of Hypertrain. As expected, this is a lot of (complex) work which also touches large parts of the single player code of the game. When I've got something working I will probably release it in a multi-player Steam branch first before merging it with the main branch.

The multiplayer setup will be client-server, in which anyone can run a dedicated server and up to 64 (hopefully, also depending on the power of the server) players can join in. It will be both PvP and PvE. That's the goal at least.

If in the meantime game breaking bugs emerge in the current version of the game then I'll definitely release patches. Bug fixing has the highest priority as always.
