A Hidden Gem of Springfield

The genre of strategy is great and diverse. There are many subgenres in it - military, economic, indirect control, real-time and step-by-step, in a historical or fantastic entourage ... If you dig into the very depth of such a classification, you can find such an amazing beast as a railroad tycoon simulator.

All these years the genre did not stand still, but evolved and evolved. The developers are no longer limited to one railroad: now such games are fashionable in the fashion of "taykuns", covering the entire spectrum of vehicles, including cars and aviation.">

But there are those who remember how it all began. Railway Empire from Gaming Minds Studios (this German studio has put a hand to such series as Patrician and Port Royale) - the classic simulator of the railway in the no less classical setting of the railway boom in North America of the XIX century.

To the Moon - one of those games that are commonly regarded as works of art. And the truth is - if art is primarily intended to cause strong emotions, to find a sincere response from the viewer or the reader, the creation of the studio Freebird Games coped with its task for two hundred percent.

This small game, outwardly reminiscent of the usual indie made on RPG Maker, caused thousands of people to shed tears - so strong and emotional was the story of how the employees of the Sigmund corporation create artificial memories in the minds of their dying patients and give them one more chance live life, having fulfilled your last desire. Three years later, a small prequel A Bird Story came out, but a full-fledged sequel came just now, six years later. And it turned out simultaneously and similar, and unlike the original.
