The rail log: Our Early Access expedition

As we approach this significant milestone, let’s look back at our voyage through Early Access. It’s been an extraordinary journey with Rail Route, filled with challenges, learning, and triumphs. The game has really changed to the better a lot in so many areas.

In-depth journey insights & lessons:


  • Crafting a Visionary Roadmap: Learning the importance of a well-thought-out 1-2 year roadmap has been a game-changer for us.
  • Navigating Changes and Choices: Each change was a stepping stone, each decision a lesson in resilience and foresight.
  • Evolving Game Design: Our experiences have honed our game design skills, allowing us to create a more engaging and enriching experience for our players.
  • Update Consistency: Committing to regular updates has been crucial in keeping Rail Route dynamic and stable.


Milestones & Achievements:


100 000 copies sold – and counting! A significant milestone that fills us with gratitude and fuels our ambitions for post-release success.

The challenge of compatibility:

An enormous task we undertook was maintaining compatibility with all Early Access saves, workshop maps, and previous choices. This required a delicate balance between innovation and respect for our players’ existing experiences. It wasn’t just about adding new features; it was about preserving the legacy and effort of our community.
