Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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.”

Update v0.9 is out!

It's the season to release another Hypertrain update!

This update brings some exciting new features as well as many bug fixes and tweaks. Thanks again for all your feedback!


MAJOR NEW FEATURES

Construction Missions
Settlements will now give missions for constructing roads to (nearby) unconnected settlements. The train that builds the shortest road will be given a big sack of gold and - as the owner of the road - is entitled to all the toll payments given by Corp trains using the road.





Construction Tech Tree Path
Construction is now one of the main strategies to win the game. This is reflected by the tech tree which now contains a path tailored to construction.




Construction Wagon
The Construction Wagon lets you build three lanes at once. Futhermore, every additional Construction Wagon adds 100kmph to the maximum allowed train speed while building (to a maximum of 500kmph).




Repair Missions
Settlements will now ask you to fix holes in existing Corp-created roads. Don't crash against holes, just fix them! :)





OTHER NEW FEATURES

  • World Settings: there is now a "none" option for connections.
  • Additional ambient sound effects.


CHANGES

  • Construction cost: building a road segment now costs coins.
  • Significantly lowered the chance of road obstacles in corkscrews and such.
  • Lowered the cost of the Radar Wagon.
  • Terrain generation while building is now significantly faster.


FIXES

  • Fixed a bug that caused the game speed to increase when looking up or down.
  • Fixed "rubber banding" issues in multiplayer mode.
  • Fixed issue where the game would suddenly put your train in another lane.
  • Fixed issue in the Wagon Screen where wagons could disappear after a
    wagon drag-and-drop action.
  • .. and many more.

Please note that this version of the game is not backwards compatible with previous save games. Too much has changed within the game to make this viable. After v1.0 save compatibility will be guaranteed with every update.

Also note that not all localisation has been updated. At the moment only NL is completely up to date.

Finally, after v0.9 comes v0.10. Don't expect v1.0 too soon :)

Happy holidays!

Update v0.8 out now!

Another month, another update! This update focuses on multiplayer coop play through the addition of factions.

MAJOR NEW FEATURES

Factions
A faction allows human players to work together under a single banner. Faction members share settlement ownership bonuses. Each faction has a tax fund which is used to distribute the faction's total wealth evenly across its members. A faction wins the game if the average of the lengths of all its members surpasses 50.



Toll Revenues
Toll is now paid to the creator of the road segment. Toll revenues are paid out at the end of the day.

Shop Stock
Settlement shops now have a limited supply of wagons.



Control Mapping
Controls can now be mapped to custom keys!



OTHER NEW FEATURES

  • Winding road segments.
  • New types of road overhangs.
  • Neon signs on stations and some buildings.
  • Purple gold items. Can be found in Marauder Nests. Rare but valuable.
  • Navigation Wagon. Provides HUD aids for navigation. Previously these aids (i.e. the compass and mission target indicators) were available by default.

CHANGES

  • Doubled the chunk size, which means the render distance is now doubled without any performance loss.
  • Improved cloud variety.
  • Starting settlements are now 50% larger.
  • Lots of minor UI changes.

FIXES

  • Fixed movement glitch when switching locomotives.
  • Fixed movement glitch when changing lanes to freshly built road segments.
  • Fixed movement glitch of battle trains.
  • Fixed issue where off-road trials were cut off by the main road.



We've also done extensive updating of the Hypertrain wiki. Be sure to check it out here.

Known issue: not all language files have been updated yet.
