Today I’m utilizing my Freeware spot to bring you an open source remake of a great ‘old’ game.  This remake is Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe (based on the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe by Chris Sawyer in 1995).

OpenTTD is essentially a clone of Chris Sawers game; however, it does include several improvements.  First it was re-written so that it could be ported to non MS-DOS based operating systems.  The capabilities of the game were also expanded to make it more flexible and allow a greater degree of player made content.

OpenTTD is a business simulator.  The basic premise is that the player is the owner of a transport company responsible for moving cargo and passengers. It’s really hard to describe this game so that it sounds fun, but it totally is.  Instead of taking my word for it, head on over to the OpenTTD page (linked above) and give it a try.  It’s free to play and is available on a number of platforms including Windows, Linux, and Mac (sorta).

-Confusion is a state of mind, or is it?
