What's happening in Railroad Empire

Railroad Empire shutdown a long time ago now. Several times a month I get a question, is Railroad Empire ever coming back? I feel comfortable telling everyone that the answer is yes. I have recently been working on a new version of Railroad Empire.

In 2013, after I shut down Railroad Empire, I started a new business with my mom called EHR Tutor, an Electronic Health record for students in the medical field to learn how to use electronic health records. That business has grown every year for the last three years and now I work on it full time as the Director of Technology. That business has kept me very busy, but I have been finding time to work on Railroad Empire again.

So the question on everyone's mind is, what is the new Railroad Empire going to look like? Well, the one thing I can tell you for sure is that, it will be truly multi-player. Players will be able to play by themselves or directly against other Railroad Empire players on the same map at the same time. You will be competing for the limited resources on the map against other players.

The graphics will be similar to what they were before but, there will be some improvements. The game will require a modern browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge or IE 11).

I have a long way to go and I can't give you a release date but, I can tell you that I will keep everyone informed of the progress.
