2 min read

Team17 has today announced Sweet Transit, a train-led city builder in development by ex-Factorio 3D artist and developer Ernestas Norvaišas. Preparing to depart into Steam Early Access in 2022, Sweet Transit is home to a world where the railway is king, and trains are the sole means of transportation and expansion. As players use these mighty iron horses to build new settlements, they’ll work to create intricate production lines to grow humble villages into thriving metropolises while moving through distinct eras such as the introduction of steam power and the invention of the combustion engine.

Sweet Transit Key Features

  • Expansive train-led city builder: Starting with a single warehouse, build a thriving interconnected world of villages and cities as you expand your rail network and evolve your society
  • Customisable rail network: Construct platforms and stations linked by intricate railway routes to help connect settlements and ensure a painless transit for both workers and civilians
  • Evolve your industry: From steam to diesel, play through distinct eras of the railway and plan the most economical expansions using the technology at your disposal
  • Be a person of the people: Keep a close eye on your citizens and ensure their needs are met as you expand your routes and scale up your settlements
  • Full modding support: Create custom content via Steam Workshop, including structures, locomotives, in-game rules, progression markers, and graphics

Ernestas Norvaišas, Developer, Sweet Transit, said:

Sweet Transit aims to capture the satisfaction of creating intricate systems that all work together in harmony. It’s a game where you can really settle in and enjoy solving unique challenges every time you play. I’m a huge fan of city builders and trains, and Sweet Transit really is a bit of my love letter to both. I can’t wait to share more of what we’ve been working on soon.”

Harley Homewood, Head of Publishing, Team17, said:

“Ernestas has an impressive development history and Sweet Transit’s train-led take on city building and resource management promises something brand-new for PC players. We’re excited to help bring the game to a hungry audience of city builder fans and train enthusiasts, and we look forward to sharing more soon.”
