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

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.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 the 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 the non-conscientious tycoon.
  • 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*

Rise of Industry reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review Rise of Industry, is a not quite classic Economic Simulation with a lot of Charm, a Propensity for Detail and a very special Atmosphere. You could describe it as a successful Mix of Anno and Transport Tycoon. At the Booth of this Review, there are over 150 researchable Recipes, Products and Technologies in 14 different Categories. Among Them is a varied Variety from the Berry Farm to Blueberry cake and Apple Juice, from simple Tree to Office chair and high Quality books, from potato to Vodka, from crude oil to sealing Mass and from Ore to Refrigerator and radio, only To name some. The tech free has a Depth of four consecutive Levels, which as quality increases also become more expensive in Research (Running And Initial Costs). The basic Areas of research are Agriculture, natural Resources, light and Heavy Industry, as well as Logistics (yes, the Zeppelin has to be explored before it flies through the Skies). For Example, new Fruit Types for Growing on a Farm, increasing the Capacity of the Bearings and the Number of Fields or Building Bridges and Tunnels are being explored. The Country is divided into different Areas with different natural Resources, for which the Entrepreneur (Player) can gradually acquire the Building rights for sale. Each Area has a "Capital" with a growing Number of Inhabitants, whose Needs not only want to be met, but also grow steadily. But Beware, the Competition is not asleep, because the Opponents of Computers also have economic Interests. Here the old Adage applies: Competition stimulates business. Because without it would be boring ... City Growth depends on how well the Player can deliver the goods they need. Thus, a small sleepy Provincial Town becomes a modern Metropolis, where we are happy to present our Expanded Headquarters. The Goods are transported by truck by road, train by Rail, ship over rivers and on the Coast and the Zeppelin through the Air from A to B. The Game is currently in the "Early Access" Phase. On the Contrary to a beta version in which "only" bugs are fixed, new Content, Improvements and new Functions are added here on an ongoing basis. For Example, Terraforming has only recently been added. This sometimes allows you to see the Self-evident nature of Game functions from a different Angle and can at the same time witness the Progress of this Game. The Developer takes his Community very seriously and reads all the Posts and answers them very frequently. A lively Participation in the Forum can lead to your Own Suggestions For improvement or Ideas being incorporated into the Game as an Update. The Developer is the Author and the Players the Critic. By the Way, the updates are available on a regular basis. Finally, a few Words about the Graphic. You can all watch the various Screenshots and (ingame) videos. Personally, I find this Type of Graphics, which at first Glance are simple but on closer Inspection is very appealing. But I can also understand that she is not to everyone's Taste. Everyone has to decide that for themselves. With each new Update, there's something New to discover and I like the Direction in which the Game is evolving. I'm looking forward to the Day when the Game includes all the great Features that the Developer still has in store. But until then, a Lot of Goods still have to be produced, transported and brought to the Townspeople. Here we go...
