At this year’s Nintendo Direct Mini showcase it was revealed that RailGrade will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. RailGrade is a train simulator. In this game, players will use trains to help improve the world around them. Trains are also used to haul supplies to the cities and these supplies can also be sold for money which players can use to upgrade trains.
With elevation, you can build more stations!
Multi-level track building means you can rise along with your profits. 📈

Epic Games are partnering with the creators of RailGrade and this is what Daniel Dressler the creator of RailGrade had to say about working with Epic Games,
We’ve worked with other indie publishers in the past and by far Epic Games is the most effective publisher. What sets Epic apart is the people. Everyone I’ve worked with at Epic has been diligent and effective. It means when Epic says they will do something we can trust it will be done and finished to a high quality.
The trains in this game can be used to fix the problems that will happen in this game. Players will build railways and place trains that will have supplies on them and will help make profits.
This game is described as, “a management sim about using railways to transport resources and power industry on an off-world colony. Construct multi-level train networks, manage supply chains, and help restore industrial production in the wake of economic disaster.” But Dressler Described it as “a management-simulation focused game. “I describe it to friends as a train game where you automate factories and save the world through the power of trains. Every time I say that it brings a smile to my face, because of course, “save the world through the power of trains” is super corny. However, it’s exactly how we want the player to feel. The world in RAILGRADE is broken and the economy is in shambles. You, the player, inherit this mess and need to go region by region fixing the problems the planet’s citizens encounter.”
RailGrade will be coming out later this year on PC and Nintendo Switch.
