Unrailed! is a true test of your friendships: Work together in local or online multiplayer with up to four players to guide your train through dangerous, procedurally generated terrain filled with obstacles and meddling local wildlife in order to reach the safety of the next station. Communication and cooperation are key to ensure you always have enough resources to build new tracks, stop your train from overheating, and can fend off animals pestering you. Without quick decision making and strategic planning your train will derail quickly, which makes the game all the more challenging. Whether you play the endless, team or quick mode - your goal is nothing else than building the longest track ever.

Unrailed! now features a whole new Biome and additional wagons. The Mars biome is the most challenging so far, boasting a hazardous environment with a mysterious entity that blocks your path and shoots at your train, and you’ll have no water at all. You have to make good use of your energy shields and your ability to fly through space in order to avoid a space transportation catastrophe.

Main features:

  • An intense and chaotic railroad construction experience

  • Online and local couch co-op multiplayer

  • Procedurally generated worlds with different difficulty levels

  • Dynamic weather system & day and night cycle

  • Game modes: Endless, Quick (up to 4 players) and Versus (2 vs 2 players)

  • Distinct biomes (5+)

  • A bunch of upgradable wagons (10+) to modify your train in Endless mode

  • Unlockable characters

  • A replay system

  • Simple controls & split controller mode

  • Blocky to the core

More information about Unrailed! can be found on the website and the official Discord.
