Rise of Industry is a strategic tycoon game that puts you in the shoes of an early 20th century industrialist.

It’s early 20th century – the second world war will never happen and the world is rife with opportunity for business growth and unimaginable profit. However, only the brave will succeed in this dog-eat-dog environment – are you ready to be the next big business tycoon?

Designed with an eye towards both accessibility and depth, Rise of Industry has enough strategic complexity and replayability to satisfy the most experienced fans of the genre, while its simple-to-understand mechanics ensure that new players will love it as well.

Build and manage your growing empire in a living, breathing, and procedurally generated world that is constantly evolving and adapting to your playstyle.

As a budding entrepreneur you will build factories, construct efficient transport lines, move raw materials, produce finished goods, and arrange trade with the world's developing cities, providing them with the resources they need to flourish - for as they grow and prosper, so do you.

Currently available as Early Access (on Steam or GOG), Rise of Industry is set to release for PC, Mac and Linux on May 2nd, 2019 priced at $29.99, €29.99, £22.99.

Reaching the conclusion of its hugely successful period in Early Access, developer Dapper Penguin Studios have also released the latest update to the game which introduces more key mechanics in preparation for May's full release. Traffic, one-way roads, overpasses and general game improvements are just some of the new additions to make Rise of Industry even better.

Following in the footsteps of classic games such as Transport Tycoon Deluxe and Industry Giant, but improved for modern day, Rise of Industry will sport huge maps containing villages, towns and cities, each with their own agendas and personalities, not only trading with you but also each other as they search for the best deal. Get your relationships wrong and you may need a PR and Marketing campaign to repair the damage – and if that doesn’t work, trade routes might just slam shut.

Key Features

  • Experience tailored for every player - Specialise in just trading, production, gathering or any combination and research your way to bigger and better things.
  • Use PR & Marketing to gain favour (or repair damage) with your business partners.
  • Choose from over 100 individual products and manage the manufacturing process from harvesting raw materials all the way to delivering the end product to local stores & townspeople?
  • Build and manage a solid transportation network to enable efficient transfer of goods via plentiful trucks, speedy trains and high capacity airships.
  • Be prepared for fierce competition – Advanced town and city A.I., make for an intelligent and changing game world so you won’t be the only one looking for the best deal.
  • Town personalities – adapt a suitable approach for every town or face their economic backlash.
  • Huge, procedurally generated maps mean that you’ll always have room to expand your empire into whether in testing scenarios or sandbox mode where imagination is your only limit.
  • Be quick to adapt to the current business climate with contracts, random events and quests keeping you on your toes and cash flowing in.
  • Go green or go home: pollution, disease and other industrial by-products will eventually await
  • Ever-changing biomes will present different environmental challenges as you aim to make the most out of the map - Lose potential oil reserves as polluted tundra melts into fields or fertile grassland wilts and dies into arid desert.
  • Ready for global domination? Bend and break your friends into economic submission in multiplayer-mode (coming shortly post release).

Rise of Industry is set to release for PC, Mac and Linux on May 2nd, 2019 priced at $29.99, €29.99, £22.99.
