The Final Station is the latest game being published by tinyBuild Games, a publisher known for a good selection of indie hits

TinyBuild Games first came to my attention with the absolutely insane "No Time to explain" and have since then proven themselves as a very competent developer and publisher by signing up some of the more unique indie games out there such as Punch Club or Speedrunners.

And now they've announced The Final Station - a post-apocalyptic survival game where you lead a train of refugees through the ruins of a shattered world trying to survive for as long as possible. Here's the trailer:


The recently released Steam page has a nice summary of what you can expect from The Final Station:

The world is over.

But it's not quite over for you... at least, not yet. And now that you've got thousands of tonnes of locomotive at your disposal, ready to take you as far down the tracks as you have fuel to feed it, you've got the definite advantage over the infected hordes. This is The Final Station.

The real question is whether or not you'll bring survivors on-board with you, or leave them out there to fend for themselves. Sometimes people can be more trouble than they're worth.

  • - A post-apocalyptic survival game in a similar vein to "This War of Mine"

  • - Survive for as long as you can by riding the rails, and finding fuel along the way

  • - Infected are ready to stop your progress whenever you exit the train to look for supplies

  • - Pick up survivors along the way, gaining perks (and hindrances) for your troubles

Even though I've only seen small tidbits of the game and its description I have to say I'm looking forward to The Final Station. There is something very attractive about the mix of pixel art, bleak visuals and depressing themes that gets me instantly immersed in to the game world. Add to that some difficult survival situations as well as decisions to make and you've got a rather interesting premise so hopefully The Final Station ends up being as good as it seems.

You can expect The Final Station to arrive at a terminal near you (these train jokes are off the rails!) in the summer of 2016.
