Cozy locomotive-led city builder, Sweet Transit, is all set to launch late next month on 28 July, when it will release in Steam Early Access. The announcement was made by Team 17 and solo developer Ernestas Norvaišas earlier this month at the Steam Next Fest event.
Watch the gameplay trailer of Sweet Transit below:
Sweet Transit is a unique city builder where the railway is king and trains are the sole means of transportation. Quaint villages will expand to bustling cities, farms to industrious factories, and steam-powered rail to combustious diesel… and beyond in this interconnected, train-driven world.
The game will have you using mighty iron locomotives to build new settlements, create intricate production lines, and grow humble villages into thriving metropolia, all through the distinct eras after the introduction of steam power, and the invention of the combustion engine.
