April 21st, 2022 – Train lovers at the ready! Rail Route will be coming back this summer on June 21st with a free, stand-alone title that will act as a prologue to the game. The Story of Jozic will give players a taste of Rail Route’s signature game mode, ‘Endless Mode’, alongside a mysterious – sometimes humorous – narrative.
Players will take on the role of an apprentice train dispatcher being shown the ropes by Rail Route’s premier mentor character, Jozic – only to discover that, perhaps, their new mentor has a past that will come back to bite them.
Watch the trailer for The Story of Jozic:
“ We wanted to pair the cathartic, soothing experience of Rail Route with a story of intrigue and melancholy – providing a fresh experience for both new and current players. Rail Route is such a fan favourite in Germany that we are thrilled to get players’ feedback,” explains Zdeněk Doležal, founder of the studio behind the game.
The concepts of Rail Route and The Story of Jozic are inspired by the real-life professions of train dispatchers. For a more complete experience, check out Rail Route in Early Access on Steam.
