Friday, 19th July 2013 17:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The first in-development screenshots for Transport Tycoon, have been released for Android and iOS.

Chris Sawyer’s 31X Ltd in partnership with Origin8 Technologies are showing off some of the terrain types and locales in the title along with cities, deserts, mountains and fields.

Over the coming weeks the teams will be showing more of the game, which promises to harken back to the original games, but with more detailed and intricately designed graphics.

Transport Tycoon is expected sometime this year.

    loved this when i was a kid, but now it just looks like crap, should have updated the visuals some, even tablets can do a lot better.

    One of the most epic games in history. Pretty conflicted about this though, Open TTD looks much better, and I would think that they’d have to either dumb it down or turn it into busywork to make it work on mobile.

    @ everyone complaining that it’s locomotion and not TTD

    The original was coded in assembly with a few snippets of C to interface with the windows API. Porting it would be impossible. Locomotion is a good starting point.

    Well supported, lots of add-ons and downloads and bloody brilliant!

    @7 Indeed. Phones will simply struggle with what’s going on, unless they limit you to like 3 trucks, 1 bus 4 planes and 5 trains!
