Prismatika | Berlin, Germany - October 3rd, 2023 - All aboard for a chilled gaming journey like no other! PRISMATIKA and Galaxy Grove are thrilled to announce that their award-winning serene and picturesque railway simulator Station to Station launches today via Steam.
Station to Station invites aspiring conductors into an attractive voxel art world to foster growth and expansion by placing stations and creating connections. With each connection comes a transformation, turning rural environments into bright, industrious worlds full of life and colour.
Unwind and embark on a leisurely train ride through 6 meticulously crafted regions, each filled with unique flora and fauna, from dry desert sands to untamed mountain terrain, all while juggling the demands of train logistics. For those engineers who love more of a train-teaser, each level offers puzzle elements with optional challenges, stack bonuses and unique mechanics throughout the regions.
