OverviewOverview

This is a digital version of wooden toy train sets, without the costs of buying more and more track pieces. You build your toy train set and towns and then jump into the driver's seat and drive the train, seeing your toy world to scale. It's a very calming and relaxing game, which is also very creative and suitable for any age.

You can start with some pre-made sets and then graduate to creating your own worlds from scratch. Add trees and foliage from various world biomes, buildings, stations, animals, vehicles, decor and more. Customise your world further by altering terrain and fog colours. Make your train your own, selecting colours and patterns. There are also free boosters, musical bells and ramps to make your train set an exciting ride! For a more complex railway system, add junctions and even introduce multiple trains.

Once you have created your world and track you can jump on board the train and play driver as you control one or more locomotives around your wooden train set world.

Tracks Toy Box edition is coming to Nintendo Switch in November.
