Rise of Industry is a strategic business tycoon that puts you in the shoes of an early 20th century industrialist. In order to succeed you will need to create your vast empire from scratch, always ensuring that all of your interwoven production lines are well supplied and your transportation network fully capable of delivering your goods to nearby towns. But if end up failing spectacularly, worry not as you can try to use your PR companies in order to deflect the blame onto someone else!

You can check out what this looks like in game via the recently posted teaser trailer down below. The whole video is a bit too focused on pointless fluff, but there is enough gameplay to at least give you a brief taste of what Rise of Industry has to offer. Have a look:

There is one more thing you need to keep in mind, and that's the simple fact that you aren't alone in the world. Opposing companies will try to muscle their way into your markets, potentially even crashing them overnight, so if you plan to become filthy rich you might want to diversify your investments. You could also try to sabotage your competition in response, but you'll need to ensure you don't get caught because nobody likes trading with a big ol' backstabber!

Rise of Industry will be coming to Steam Early Access in the first quarter of 2018, though no specific date has been given just yet. To learn more I would recommend heading over to either Steam or the official website.
