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.

More Mandriva Eulogies

  • Good-bye, Mandriva!
    I think that it is sad that the Mandriva star twinkles no more in the OS universe, but it is good that other distros can continue with its legacy: Mageia, OpenMandriva Lx and, up to a certain extent, PCLinuxOS.
  • Finally! It's the year of Linux on the desktop TITSUP
    Mandriva, a French purveyor of desktop Linux, is being wound up, after becoming totally incapable of supporting usual performance (TITSUP), financially at least. The liquidation notice suggests the company's 2013 was around €600,000 and that the company has between 10 and 19 staff.
  • Goodbye, Mandriva, Thank You for the Mandriva Linux OS
    It is with sadness in our hearts that we inform you today, May 27, about the termination of the French Mandriva company, which is currently in the process of being liquidated, according to a notice posted on the societe.com website.
  • A Linux company that spent 17 years competing with Windows is officially over
    It also had some success in Malaysia. But by 2012, the company was on the brink of bankruptcy, a situation that had happened several times since its early days, in 1998. It was saved for a few more years by Jean-Manuel Croset, who joined as COO in 2011 and soon after became CEO.
