Open Transport Tycoon

Jump to Comments

OpenTTD screenshot Speaking of old games, another game I spent too much time playing when I was younger was Transport Tycoon, a moneymaking game involving multiple forms of transit: trains, buses, planes, ships. I haven’t played it in years, and my current hardware wouldn’t let me play it again even if I could find the disks. (Nor did I ever see the sequel, Transport Tycoon Deluxe.) But there’s this open-source thing, OpenTTD, which seeks to clone, improve and extend the Transport Tycoon Deluxe game. It’s multiplatform (yay!) but there’s a catch: you have to have a copy of the original game. (Maybe I can find a jewel-case CD somewhere.) More information and documentation at the OpenTTD wiki.
