Developed on Linux, the train transportation sim 'Hexa Trains' is out now

Posted by , | Views: 5,457

After an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign, solo developer Bram Stolk has released Hexa Trains on Steam. Developed on Linux, this unusually styled transportation sim certainly looks interesting. Note: Key provided to our Steam Curator.

Stolk is the same developer who previously made The Little Crane That Could, which released back in 2015 on Steam and it ended up rather popular on mobile. Nice to see a familiar name return with something completely different. Hexa Trains is all about railroads, building up a successful and smooth transport service across a planet as you link stations across it to various resource buildings.

Overall it's quite a simple game once you get into it. Easy to use and understand controls with a clean style that works well for what it's doing. The end goal seems to be to get the best score possible and beat everyone else on the leaderboards. How you do that is entirely up to you, as you're given the freedom to build at your own leisure.

While it's simple in terms of features and design, that doesn't mean it's necessarily an easy game. Getting all these production lines going and keeping track of them all can get a little complicated once you've got a number of trains going and lots of tracks crossing over each other.

There's not a great deal more to it than that but the developer did say on Steam that they intend to continue improving it. Quite relaxing for what's there though.

You can find it on Steam with 40% off until October 14th.
