This week hailed the release of TransOcean - The Shipping Company, an ambitious transport simulator where players establish their own shipping company to mirror MSC, Maersk Line, CMA CGM, etc. Itís a turn-based strategy game, where your ultimate aim is to conquer the seven seas, managing your trade empire and building a mighty fleet of modern merchant ships. Time is money!
You can even take the helm of a colossal container ship and navigate one of 55 authentic ports across the globe.
Arguably similar to Port Of Call which was first released in 1987, TransOcean follows an ever increasing list of computer simulators ranging from the popular Sims franchise to the more absurd and wacky Goat Simulator. Whatís next?!
Who would have known the world of international shipping would be so interesting?
Released on the 24rd of September 2014, TransOcean currently retails on Steam for USD$29.99 (download your copy today!). Reviews to date have been positive with one fan saying 'After two hours of play, I have to say that Iím impressed.'
Take a look at what the makers of TransOcean had to say about Auckland, their Port of the Week (dated 19th September 2014).
