A Review of Open TTD for Linux

Filed under
Gaming

Open TTD is a wonderful new revamp open source expansion of the classic Transport Tycoon Deluxe and with a price tag of free, it’s a great, inexpensive, and fun way to waste your time. This free price tag was brought about by the gaming community’s development of replacement software. Up until 2009 you had to have the Transport Tycoon Deluxe software which was no longer being supported by developers. But now, thanks to fan devotion, this is a completely free classic transport simulation tycoon-style game that all players can love, so let’s see what the fuss is all about.

The first thing that you should understand about Open TTD is that this game is about freedom and choices. You, as the player, are responsible for choosing the best routes to keep your cities supplied with the goods and services they need. But make no mistake; it is still all about the bottom dollar, which you will need to purchase land, to lay out more routes, to supply more goods and services, to make more money.
