Full press release after the jump.

“London, UK – July 19th 2013 – Chris Sawyer’s 31X Ltd and Origin8 Technologies Ltd are proud to reveal the first screenshots from Transport Tycoon, coming to iOS and Android in 2013.

We’ve decided to show you a varied selection, showcasing all kinds of interesting and different terrain types & locales, with cities, deserts, mountains and fields – just a glimpse at the full scope that the game offers.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be showing more and more of the game, but for now we’ve hidden the overlays so that fans can study the environments in all their glory.

As you can see, Chris Sawyer and the team at  Origin8 have elected to stick with a graphical style that harks back to the original games, but also looks glorious, detailed and intricate on modern screens – particularly on retina iPads! We’re confident that this will show fans that the team is taking the game incredibly seriously, and making every decision based on how best to bring this classic back into our lives.

Of course these are taken from an in-development build so aren’t fully representative of the final quality of the game.

View the screenshots here.
