Transport Giant

An economy strategy game developed by JoWooD Entertainment AG. The action starts in 1850 during the great economic boom. The player assumes the role of a newly-formed transport company that deals in transporting various kinds of goods and raw materials as well as factory workers. Our task is to dynamically expand our firm and forge it into a true transport empire throughout centuries. Transport Giant offers over a dozen varied campaigns set in Europe and in the United States. As we play, we set routes for our vehicles (over 130 means of transportation, such as trucks, trains, ships, and airplanes), build bridges, viaducts, and tunnels, erect new buildings (over five hundred types), and extend the trade of our company. What’s interesting, the said production was released on PC in 2004, and 13 years later UIG Entertainment developed an enhanced edition which was released on PlayStation 4, as well.

The second half of the 19th century was a period of a great economic boom during which new industrial factories sprung up like mushrooms. On one hand, they produced gigantic amounts of all kinds of good; on the other, they required raw materials and workers who had to somehow commute to their workplaces. Cities also bloomed, and the rapidly increasing numbers of their inhabitants called for quick and reliable supply deliveries. Therefore, dynamic development of means of transportation was a necessity.

Transport Giant for PC / Windows is a game that lets the player dive into this historical reality and assume the role of a transport company owner who, starting out with modest capital, sets out to create a giant, international transport empire.

Mechanics

We can develop our company for two centuries, starting in year 1850. There are 130 various kinds of vehicles for freight and passenger transport at our disposal: trains (we can create their composition – up to 64 cars), trucks, ships, airplanes, helicopters, and others – all can be painted with our company’s colors. Obviously, we establish routes through which they move. Moreover, we get to build bridges, tunnels, and many other elements of infrastructure. The game also offers over 500 types of buildings as well as 60 sorts of goods and industries.

The game features over a dozen varied campaigns that are divided into two different scenarios: Europe and the USA. Moreover, we can choose from additional map for free play (with no end).
