OverviewOverview

Unrailed! is a co-op strategy game where you work with friends to build a train line across endless landscapes. Along with finding the resources to build track, bridges and tunnels you need to deal with local inhabitants, upgrade your train and watch out for dangers. Each player must choose one tool and role and then work together to win.

With blocky graphics, it looks simple, but your team has to pay attention to gather the right resources, craft tracks and extend your railroad to prevent your train from running out of line. Because there is only one tool of each type, co-operation and co-ordination is essential.

As you proceed you can upgrade your train with faster atomic engine, a quicker crafting wagon or even attach a supercharger or other performance enhancing buffs. Add to this the dynamic weather system & day and night cycle, wide range of landscapes and you have a great multiplayer game for the family.
