In their own words:

Urban GamesTrain Fever is a railroad-focused business simulation game with role-playing elements. (...) The game runs on an engine specifically developed for this game. The engine has a great innovative scope and is specialized in procedural content and urban simulation. A key point is the fact that there is no grid that game objects have to be aligned to, allowing for a great degree of freedom.

The game is currently being crowdfunded at (in fact it's the only active project there right now), a fairly recent gaming-only, professional crowdfunding platform. What does professional mean, here? It means that, while a project can work à la Kickstarter (i.e. offering different perks depending on the amount pledged), it can alternatively offer equity for your inversion. This project is being funded the second way, so anyone contributing to it will partake in the future sales revenue (plus, everyone inverting 40€ or more will also get a free copy of the game).

Judging by the screenshots and by the gameplay video this looks really promising. I'm really looking forward to seeing this project fully funded and playing the game! Article taken from
