Game release: “The Final Station” (PC)

Games with a train setting are rare, and Do My Best Games’/tinyBuild‘s side-scrolling survival action strategy simulation The Final Station is one of those rare cases when it might work for the whole playtime.

The general idea is to drive a locomotive through a dying world while taking care of shadow-y infected as enemies and survivors as friends (or potential threats). While this sounds extremely similar to Fear Equation, the difference is obviously the 2D space and also atmosphere. While there’s nothing original in using pixel art in indie games, the lack of bloodshed makes it feel like less of a run-of-the-mill Zombie shooter game. Just like Shardlight, music and background visuals create an oppressive sense of danger but also wonder of what’s happening at each new train station.

As each of these locations tells different stories and one has to decide who to leave behind and how to keep the train operational in order to reach the final station or destination, replaying the game provides different experiences. With changing environments that serve storytelling, fleshing out the dying world, it’s definitely one of the more interesting side-scrollers.

The game is now available on PC, but will also get a console release, PS4 and Xbox One respectively. There’s also a Collector’s Edition that includes the soundtrack and an artbook.
