Rise of Industry Leaves Early Access in May 2019

Kasedo Games and Dapper Penguin Studios have announced that their tycoon management game Rise of Industry will be leaving Early Access on May 2nd.

The game hit Early Access back in February of last year, and has received a steady stream of new content and tweaks. Players assume the role of an early 20th century industrialist gradually building up a trading empire.

Construct factories, connect cities with transportation routes, and negotiate lucrative trade deals. You can check out a trailer for the game above. If you’d like to know even more, then you can try the game’s demo on it’s Steam and GOG pages.

Here’s a rundown of the game:


Rise of Industry is a strategic tycoon game that puts you in the shoes of an early 20th-century industrialist. Build and manage your growing empire in a living, breathing, and procedurally generated world that is constantly evolving and adapting to your playstyle.

As a budding entrepreneur, you will build factories, construct efficient transport lines, move raw materials, produce finished goods, and arrange trade with the world’s developing cities, providing them with the resources they need to flourish – for as they grow and prosper, so do you.

Designed with an eye towards both accessibility and depth, Rise of Industry has enough strategic complexity and replayability to satisfy the most experienced fans of the genre, while its simple-to-understand mechanics ensure that new players will love it as well.

Key Features:

  • Experience tailored for every player – Specialise in just trading, production, gathering or any combination and research your way to bigger and better things.
  • Use PR & Marketing to gain favour (or repair damage) with your business partners.
  • Choose from over 100 individual products and manage the manufacturing process from harvesting raw materials all the way to delivering the end product to local stores & townspeople
  • Build and manage a solid transportation network to enable the efficient transfer of goods via plentiful trucks, speedy trains and high capacity airships.
  • Be prepared for fierce competition – Advanced town and city A.I., make for an intelligent and changing game world so you won’t be the only one looking for the best deal.
  • Town personalities – adapt a suitable approach for every town or face their economic backlash.
  • Huge, procedurally generated maps mean that you’ll always have room to expand your empire into whether in testing scenarios or sandbox mode where imagination is your only limit.
  • Be quick to adapt to the current business climate with contracts, random events and quests keeping you on your toes and cash flowing in.
  • Balance environmental impact with productivity, trying to meet your neighbouring town’s demands.
  • Ever-changing biomes will present different environmental challenges as you aim to make the most out of the map – Lose potential oil reserves as polluted tundra melts into fields or fertile grassland wilts and dies into arid desert.

Rise of Industry is available on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and GOG for $24.99. The price will increase to $29.99 when the game leaves Early Access.
