Today's Web Wednesday project is pretty awesome and while there appears to be source available for it, it was outside of my skillset to really grok it. But I though this awesome enough to share anyway.
Are you a MicroProse Transport Tycoon Deluxe fan? You remember last year's post about an "open" version of it, OpenTTD (Yes, that TTD, you know the game I talking about...)?
PlayTTD: The browser game based upon Transport Tycoon Deluxe
It's 1950. You're presented with a vast game world made up of numerous small towns and raw material resources. You've got $200,000 and you've got to prove yourself; to set the wheels in motion to become The Transport Tycoon.
Matched against a batch of ruthless rivals, you'll have to act quickly; to build the key routes that will rake in the cash. Build stations, airports, docks and a linking a road, rail, air and ship network. Then, move passengers, mail or goods to the most lucrative destination. As the years roll by you'll be able to buy more advanced and faster vehicles and vessels; if you can afford them!
MAKE TRACKS. MAKE CONNECTIONS. MAKE IT BIG.
- Build stations, docks, airports and make money by connecting areas requiring transport services
- Construct complex road - rail - air - sea networks using a simple to use interface
I mentioned source?
Code base of http://play-ttd.com.
It even runs in the Windows 8 Standard IE10
And it runs on the Surface RT IE10. (So you can touch TTD! It's kind of slow, but does work!
Now how awesome is that!
