Railroad Empire 2!

Yes, it's finally here, and no I am not talking about the new iPhone either. Railroad Empire has just launched its newest version. We have added a ton of new features and we have a completely new and upgraded look and feel. Most important of all we aren't done. Railroad Empire has always taken an iterative approach to development and we highly value your feedback, we try and answer peoples questions and take user suggestions into account when making changes. So please let us know what you like and don't like so that we can continue to make Railroad Empire better.

So what's new?
Missions are the big new thing in Railroad Empire. Each day you will be given new missions that you can try to complete, upon completing a mission you will be given a reward. Board of Director Points are among the rewards you may receive, and we planning on adding more rewards for mission completion in the future.

Filters and searching in the cities/station screen are another of the big new features. You guys have been asking for this feature since the beginning and I promise I heard you all along, it just took a long time to get to it.

New look and feel. From the bottom up we have changed the look of the game, I actually hired an excellent graphic designer who worked with me to completely redo the graphics, there are still a few places where work needs to be done, but I think everyone will be happy with the new look.

What's coming?
We aren't done yet, Today's release coincides with the Facebook requirement to support secure browsing for Facebook apps. Over the next couple of weeks look for a newsletter, a weekly railroad report, cargo filters on the map, new map graphics for the routing page, and availability in the Google Chrome Webstore as well as on other game portals.

Please keep the wonderful feedback coming and keep listening to this space for a lot more exciting news. Together we are going to make Railroad Empire the best Train Game / Railroad Strategy game ever.
