Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

The mother of all storms is on the way.

You've lived out of this tiny junkheap mobile home on makeshift rails for an age. But if you want to live any longer, you're gonna have to hightail it for Esperance. The endless wasteland ahead may kill you... but you have to try!

Escape the toxic storm by finding fuel to keep your Train going. Keep on the lookout for food to stop you starving. If you get hurt, you'll need medicine to restore health.


- Press Use to activate the Throttle Lever on the Train, then Up/Down to change it

- You'll need to Use fuel cans on the engine rigged up next to the bed to keep her topped up. The number by the gauge shows consumption rate.

- Store items in a hatch on the outside (apologies, this has some bugs).

- Sound is essential! Good luck!

Interesting concept but on windows do not work keyboard controls (E, F, Spacebar). Pity but game is not playable :(

Apologies for the controls issue on the windows build, controls had mistakenly changed to Z and X; this should now be fixed (you can also set the controls in the Input panel of the startup loader).

Well executed game, fun to play and really gets hectic towards the end. Controls are not snappy enough, can be a bit difficult to pick up things, move and so on, so I died much earlier than necessary.

Had fun with this. Choppy audio but other than that, very polished and a lot of atmosphere. For fun I set the train to top speed and jumped out... I will never see that train again... ;)

Walking dead in a train with no Zombies. I like it!

Looks good, but it's way too hard to control because of the inertia and the collision bugs.

I really enjoyed the theme of this one- I was able to play fairly well on the keyboard though I had to figure out what buttons did what-

F picked up items just fine for me.

I would like to have had a purpose more than just how far can I make it- but for a game jam this is great. I loved the mechanic of the train car and its use as the theme of one room.

Great game- Id love to see it worked on further :)

I loved this!
Yes, you could polish the gameplay a little more, but damn it's a awesome idea. I hope you are planning on keep working on it.

Sometimes after using the storage I couldn't drive or use the engine for some reasons. But Good looking and music

Wow we basically made the identical game! :D up to the shape of the fuel canisters and health packs! :D

I love the effects of the toxic storm, creates quite a mood.

I died once because I got stuck between the driver's seat and the wall and couldn't get out. I also often had glitchy graphics effects when entering the mobile home.

Overall, very good game, had fun playing it!
