Unleash your creative powers in Blocks Tracks Trains

Blocks Tracks Trains is a creative and unique offering developed by a one-man Indie developer and is a real labor of love to be enjoyed by everyone! Since its soft release a few months back, it has garnered lots of interest and has been improved and extended. Now with a full release, Blocks Tracks Trains is unveiled in all its glory on PC and Steam Deck. It will entertain and fascinate those of you eager for something different and its creative potential is endless! Blocks Tracks Trains is, by definition, not a game, as it has no real obstacles or goals. It is a creative building toy. There are no resources or hours of grinding – it’s a limitless sandbox that will stretch your imagination.

Some Very Interesting Key Points:

  • Generate a random chunk of terrain to start your build.
  • Modify the landscape any way you want; in contrast to other train set builders the terrain can be fully sculpted, and it is not just a height map. You can have tunnels, overhangs, etc. with various materials like stone, soil, gravel, grass, and sand!
  • Build a voxel world, along with freely placeable scaffolds for your voxel buildings.
  • Build houses, bridges, mansions, castles, towers, lighthouses, and villas – from little blocks of wood, brick, and stone!
  • Design your own locomotives and carriage.
  • Almost anything can be painted; you can freely mix colors from the palette. There is also glowing paint and a matching Night View mode.
  • Train tracks are easy to build using a spline system and can handle complex track layouts.
  • Set up a track network and watch your trains go on a journey.
  • The visuals aim to imitate a “grown-up’s” model train set, not a children’s toy.
  • You can play in a top-down view or in a first-person view.
  • There is a Play Mode in which you can play with your train set: locomotives and switches can be controlled by hand, and vehicles coupled with other vehicles. Trains can be as complex as you like, with no limitation on the number of wagons or locomotives. Full support for shunting operations.
  • There are default props like locomotives, wagons, people, and various plants/trees to get you started.
  • And coming very soon: Steam Workshop integration to allow you to share your creations with other players!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
