City-builder fans may want to keep an eye on this one. Pressing Thumbs Games just revealed Times of Progress, a classic city-builder set during the Industrial Revolution.

"Place industries to extract the natural resources that the land offers. Connect them with the transport infrastructure and make sure that they have access to the local workforce. Progress towards providing secondary goods and services to your population, while balancing the issues that arise from the expanding city."

Oo, a Bevy game! Glad to start seeing games made with it maturing to the point of wider release.

Intersting. I would probably enjoy this. I love OpenTTD but I am too lazy to figure out how to train properly.

Looks cool, and it's nice to see games done with Bevy.
