Thursday, 28th July 2022 – Team17 and Ernestas Norvaišas have today announced that Sweet Transit, the systems-led, train-powered city builder by the ex-Factorio 3D artist and developer, is now available to purchase in Steam Early Access.

Following a successful beta earlier in the year, Ernestas Norvaišas, the game’s solo developer, has worked closely with the community, implementing feedback, features, and quality of life improvements all the way up to early access launch. Ernestas is now thrilled to welcome PC strategy fans and locomotive enthusiasts to the game’s intricate, train-powered world. 

Ernestas Norvaišas, solo developer, Sweet Transit, said:  
"It's only been a year and a half since I started as a solo developer, working full time on a game that I love. I’m excited by today's early access launch as it means I can finally share Sweet Transit with the world. While it feels like a huge milestone, it is far from the end of the journey, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the community and Team17 to build on my vision for Sweet Transit and make it a go-to for strategy fans and train enthusiasts." 

 
A development roadmap for Sweet Transit features below, charting the additions and changes players can expect following the game’s early access debut. 

Home to a world where the railway is king and trains are the sole means of transportation and expansion, Sweet Transit sees players use these mighty iron horses to build new settlements, create intricate production lines, and grow humble villages into thriving metropolises while moving through distinct eras such as the introduction of steam power and the invention of the combustion engine.
