Latest Games Reviewed: Transport Tycoon

Author: GN Team - Published: 7 October 2023, 9:28 pm

Transport Tycoon is a simulation game created by Chris Sawyer and published by MicroProse in 1994 for PC MS-DOS.

Chris Sawyer, who had started his career by converting Elite Plus and Frontier: Elite II to MS-DOS, had a great passion for Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon. He came up with the idea of improving the famous strategy game by adding an isometric view for a more immersive experience. He also wanted to introduce new means of transportation, which is how the development of Transport Tycoon began.

Regarding the visual aspect, Sawyer did much more than introduce isometric graphics. Firstly, he chose to adopt an SVGA resolution of 800x600, which was much sharper than the classic VGA resolution of 320x200. Additionally, to manage all the game elements, he developed a button and window interface, a kind of Windows-like operating system specifically written for this game, which ran on MS-DOS. Every window could be moved, and all were updated in real-time. Compared to other games released in 1994, Transport Tycoon seems (and indeed is) light years ahead.
