During my teenage years, I used to spend vast amounts of time playing Transport Tycoon, followed by Transport Tycoon Deluxe. It was an absolutely fantastic game written by Chris Sawyer. Actually, going a number of years back to my very early teens, I used to play Railroad Tycoon on the Amiga, which was a similar sort of thing, but only for trains, made by Sid Meier.
Recently, I’ve been playing OpenTTD, an open source reimplementation of Transport Tycoon Deluxe, which runs perfectly on modern day operating systems, including Win2k/XP/Vista, Linux, MacOS and others. It features many enhancements, and removes many of the limits that were present in the original game (Such as the maximum number of trains, stations, etc).
It’s definitely worth checking out, although you need files from the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe. You can pick up copies of it on Amazon/eBay for next to nothing. So if you’ve been wondering why I’ve not posted over the past few days, now you know :P
