OpenTTD

OpenTTD

OpenTTD is a reimplementation of the Microprose game "Transport Tycoon Deluxe" with lots of new features and enhancements. The first Transport Tycoon (TT) game was released in 1994, with the release of Transport Tycoon Deluxe (TTD) following the next year.

You play the role of president of a start-up transport company in 1950, building railway, road, air and maritime transportation systems for commodities and people. The goal of the game is to outsmart your competition and become the game's highest-ranking transport company by the year 2050.

There are many tools available to build transport routes, including ability to fully modify the landscape. Each town has a Local Authority which tries to prevent the player from excessive terraforming.

The data files of the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe for Windows/DOS are mandatory to play the game.
