Why decide to join Games In Development on GOG?

Bounty Train is a complex game. Your character will be an engine driver, a train engineer, a fighter, a trader, and an investigator, probably all at once. This complexity requires a wide variety of game mechanics from different game genres, such as train simulators, real-time strategy games, business simulations and RPGs. It is difficult to create such a complex game from scratch, so we decided to do it step by step. In cooperation with our passionate players we hope to make Bounty Train an enjoyable experience.

Approximately how long will Bounty Train be in early access?

There's no exact date yet, so we will keep the community updated and we'll try to make it happen as soon as possible.

What do you plan to change during development?

What is the current state of Bounty Train?

Bounty Train is in an early beta state. The current version features 25 cities. Additionally, the storyline is not finished yet, but there are 20+ quests along the main storyline and many side quest. We will update and increase the content with almost every Bounty Train update.

Right now you can:
- Customize your own train from seven different locomotives and fifteen different carriages
- Deliver cargo and passengers from city to city with dynamic passenger and delivery quests
- Fight with bandits, native tribes, Union and Confederate soldiers
- Complete the main storyline and various side quests
- Hire characters for your crew
- Increase your characters' skills
- Trade goods
- Be part of the US history
- Meet Abraham Lincoln :-)

Will the price change on release day?

Yes, most likely.

How can the community participate in the development process?

Our players’ feedback is very important to us. As we are still in relatively early stage of development, we still have the capacity to implement features suggested by the community. We'll gladly take their feedback in terms of bug-hunting and detecting any other issues that may arise while playing Bounty Train. We want to be as close as possible to our players and chat with the community in forums and mailing lists or via polls.

How should we do this? Should we just make threads here? Is there a bug report location the devs would prefer us to use? I am especially interested in this mailing list you say exists.

I've already got one clear suggestion to make and I want to point out a few typos (I wish I had noted them down when I saw them).

hmmm... yes, why indeed? I have bought the game 4 months ago and since then there has not been a single update/patch/new version! Strange for a game "in development" - or should I say abandoned, after an initial money grab from those dumb enough to pay quite a lot of money for an unfinished game?!

Don't get me wrong, this first beta version looks quite nice apart from a few things that I would have changed/improved, but now will not even bother to further comment because I guess I also have just given up on this game... lesson learned: be wary of buying unfinished games, rather wait until the game is finished, then put it on your wishlist and grab it at the first 80 % discount sales...

And: in the future do not hesitate to use the 30-day-money-back-guarantee for games in development if they do not meet your expectations!

At least there is still the yet unsurpassed Railroad Tycoon 2 Platinum :-)... my suggestion for all who are considering to buy "Bounty Train" or a similar game: get RT2 and have (more) fun for less money with this old but great game!
Thank you for your comment, but we still develop this game. Unfortunately we had to rework rather big part of the game and we couldn't split it into several small updates. That's why next update will be with so big delay. In the same time it will bring a lot new features, fixes and new content.

Another one drawback is that players will loose their progress. We are really sorry for this, but we couldn't support them with so big changes.
Hello,

I've seen on steam that the game get an update. What about gog's players ? Didn't saw any news about it.

By the way, the game is really good, but I can't understand why we can't get several wagon for mercenaries.
Other point, put a pay system for mercenaries each months or each weeks and a system where our employees could leave us if we do bad or good action (depend of them).

except those feedback, I found the game nice and peasant to play.

Have a nice day.

Glad to hear you enjoy our game!
As for update, unfortunately at gog it will be a little bit later. Probably at the beginning of year 2017. We really regret that couldn't release update at the same time at both locations, but from other side, gog might got more stable version.

As for mercenaries salary, it's interesting idea. Especially with possibility that employee could leave us. Union soldier can leave us, if our players attitude to Confederates will be too high and vice versa. We will check this, thanks!
