There are four eras.
The game will run on ‘slow time’: a month of game-time will take three times as long as normal in real time.
UPDATE: Emanuel Merino won! Now let us hope my “You won a contest!” email does not get caught in his spam filter.
Just in time for Christmas you could win a copy of Sid Meier’s Railroad for Mac! The developers at feral interactive were kind enough to donate a copy of SMR for Mac to smrsimple. The contest ends December 27th but if you’re in a hurry you can also get a copy from the Mac App Store
The rules of the contest are simple. Make a post naming your favourite train or locomotive and optionally tell the story why it is your favourite. Then on the 27th of December, one week from now and two days after Christmas, I’ll have the computer pick a random winner! Make sure you use your real email when commenting so I can contact you if you win. If you want to enter the contest (since contests are fun) but don’t have a mac then just say so and I’ll make the computer skip you.
I’ll go first as an example, don’t worry I’ll exclude myself from the contest.
