Bounty Train - E3 2015 Trailer
The simulation aspects of Bounty Train were really cool, and while I appreciate having a market that is constantly changing – unless you're going to be busting open an Excel spreadsheet to track market prices from one town to the next, then there's too many things going on here. Bounty Train has a wide array of gameplay mechanics and variety I liked, like its turn-based combat and challenges while riding the rails and managing fuel and speed to not derail. Bounty Train has some really interesting and deep systems, that are gated by its harsh difficulty and randomization. There are ways around it, thanks to Freemode, if only minimally.
