Transport Giant comes to Steam 9/5

by: Ben Berry -

Transport Giant is a sim franchise that focuses on transportation. Unlike a lot of its competitors in this space, it doesn't focus on a single mode of transport (like say Trainz) but instead focuses on the growth of different modes of transportation, including land, sea, and air from the beginning of the industrial revolution to 35 years into our future. And while the focus is on moving passengers and products, it's still got 500 different types of buildings. It certainly looks interesting.
