Railroad Tycoon 2 Platinum Q&A
8:35 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new interview has been posted at GameAddicts, talking with PopTop Software about their just announced Railroad Tycoon 2 Platinum. The game, which includes the expansion pack, strategy guide, soundtrack, and extra scenarious, is only shipping for the PC at this point, though IMG has talked with PopTop's Phil Steinmeyer and there is a possibility of a Mac version as well. The Q&A looks at the reason for the title, as well as a little about the game's fanatical following on the web:

[GA] RTII had an almost fanatical fan-following on the web, with more than 1,500 user-created scenarios available on a number of fan sites. What do you think prompted such a great response? What will the RTII Platinum's scenarios bring into the game that cannot be simply downloaded from the web?

[PopTop] Well, the music and 10 scenarios we created are the main thing but we also stiffed through most of those maps and even made corrections and such to many of the 40 we are using. The 40 are also some of the best of ALL those scenario's you mentioned. It's some new stuff, convenience, and low price.

Have a read through the rest of the interview if you're interested, and stay tuned for more info on a Mac possibility of the game in the near future.
