Tank. Tank... Tank go here. Tank good.
Hey, dude, you ever think about how, like, weird real time strategy is? Like, just what is "real" "time" anyway, man? Kinda assumes that all "real" time is the same and, maybe this just me being an "agitator," but...

Review

Though mostly realistic, Transport Tycoon occasionally gets a bit fantastical: here's 12 people who want to go to Milton Keynes, for example.
The only reason Transport Tycoon doesn't seem completely strange to us is because it's so familiar.
