Since I've been trying to spread the word about this amazing game, I figured I'd create a thread about it. Welcome to the amazingness that is...LOGistICAL.
It's...not the easiest game to explain, but I'll try.
The base game includes Australia. All of it. But you begin in a small section of it surrounded by a bunch of towns. All of these towns are essentially small puzzles that need to be completed in order for you to gain money to buy more trucks to move more things to solve more towns.
Each town has its own requirement, such as fish or lettuce or nails or whatever. You use trucks to bring those items from other towns that produce those things. The industries in these towns can also be upgraded to store more materials and gather resources faster. So you have puzzles within puzzles.
Some towns can't be accessed until you fix their roads, which can be done by hauling gravel or, eventually, asphalt.
All of these things need to be hauled by trucks, of which there are several different types with different states of wear and tear that affect their performance.
The beauty of all this, besides the relaxing and engaging gameplay, is that there's no timer or anything. This can all be done at your own pace, in any order you want. While there are contracts to complete that give you focus and bonuses, these can also be completely ignored if you wish.
It's not the easiest game to explain, maybe these tutorials will do a better job.
That said, this game is wonderful. It's a great game to just pull back, relax with a podcast, and solve a few towns. The game autosaves to the cloud every ten seconds, and you can have multiple saves, so if you want to have a save for Australia and a save for The Netherlands DLC (multiple states and countries are coming as DLC), you can do that too.
It's seriously so, so great, so I've been trying to tell folks about it. The base game is $10, and totally worth it, as you get a couple of thousand towns right off the bat. Also, if you're an achievement hunter, the game currently has about 5,000 achievements, one for every town and road completed. It's crazy.
So yeah, love this game and wanna scream about it from the mountaintop. Thanks for the opportunity.
