Upcoming Maintenance Period 4/20/2011

Google App Engine, our hosting provider will be conducting maintenance on Wednesday April 20, 2011 from about 5PM to 6PM. The game will be unavailable during this time. This is the time the maintenance is scheduled for, but last time they had maintenance it went over about half an hour.

In other exciting Railroad Empire News
I have placed the first phase of our project to allow non-Facebook users to play the game in public beta. This first phase allows users to play the game with their Facebook credentials on the standalone version of the game without the Facebook stuff. The advantage of this for current players is that you get much more real estate for the map and for the various tables of data. It is also noticeably faster.

If you would like to take the beta for a test drive visit:

To discuss the beta please join the Railroad Empire Facebook Group:

The next phase that I am currently developing will allow users with Google, Yahoo, AOL, MSN, etc... to play the game without having to have a Facebook Account.

The final phase of this project will be to make it so that Players playing the game on the Facebook Canvas will use Facebook Credits for purchases.
