Feral Interactive has announced the release of a demo for Sid Meierís Railroads!, the re-imagining of the legendary Railroad Tycoon. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for PC, Sid Meierís Railroads! comes to the Mac for the first time under the Feral Legends label.

First published in 2006 for PC, Sid Meierís Railroads! is a compelling combination of virtual train set and business simulator, putting players in charge of building their own railroad empire. Players control a vast collection of rolling stock from steam and diesel locomotives to modern electric trains, hauling goods and passengers across vast continents.

Featuring 46 historically-accurate trains, 16 maps and seven mission-driven scenarios that span two centuries of American and European history,

Sid Meierís Railroads! challenges players to turn frontier lands into thriving civilizations by laying track and routing trains between farms, towns, mines and factories. With rival railroad barons such as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Charles de Gaulle on the scene, players will need to be quick, smart and decisive to stay on track.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • 1.8GHz Intel Mac
  • 3GB RAM
  • 128 MB or better graphics card
  • Mac OS 10.6.8 or later.
  • The game does not support the following graphics cards: ATI X1xxx series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and Intel GMA series.

Sid Meierís Railroads! for the Mac retails in North America for US $29.99, £19.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and Ä24.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe.

Holy Crap! A demo! :blink: I already thought that was a thing of the past.

My thought exactly. There were TWO demos announced on IMG today; I thought I must have hit my head and woken up in the past.

Current setup: macOS 10.11.x/2008 MacPro 3,1 Xeon 2 x 2.8GHz/8GB RAM/NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB

I have loved brains trains since I was a little boy. I have to check out this demo.
