Steam Gamers, Get Ready for the New Ticket To Ride® Video Game!

Marmalade Game Studio is thrilled to unveil an exciting new adaptation of Ticket to Ride, set to make its debut on the Steam platform. This innovative premium version promises to captivate both long-time fans and newcomers, immersing players in the world of railway expansion like never before.

Marmalade Game Studio has earned a reputation for delivering top-quality digital board games across mobile, PC, and console platforms. Ticket to Ride will join their esteemed lineup of classics, which includes Monopoly, The Game of Life 2, The New Clue(do), and Mouse Trap. Each game is thoughtfully crafted, leveraging the digital format to introduce innovative features while staying true to the original board game’s essence.

The upcoming Ticket to Ride video game boasts stunning 3D animations that breathe life into the board game. Featuring a brand-new AI system, single-player mode offers a realistic challenge for seasoned players, adapting dynamically to their strategies as the game unfolds.

Cristina Mereuta, co-CEO of Marmalade Game Studio, shared insights into the development process: “Over the last year we have spent hundreds of hours analysing how the best players approach the game, which tactics they use and how and when they decide to change tack. We all know that person in the group who doesn’t just win the game, but wins it with 200 points, obliterating the competition. We interviewed more than a hundred such players to understand what sets them apart and modelled our AI system based on their input, resulting in a live AI that uses the best strategies for winning, but also responds in real time to how the game is played around them. This gives us the best of both worlds, a satisfying game for expert players and also a casual game for less experienced audiences.”

Marmalade’s Ticket to Ride balances a modern interface with animated details, ensuring immersion without sacrificing clarity. The game’s design allows for shorter real-time multiplayer sessions or leisurely asynchronous games, accommodating a wide range of players. Ticket to Ride welcomes up to five players in various multiplayer modes, including online matches with players from around the world and private games with friends.

With an established fanbase, Marmalade Game Studio has fostered close relationships with players through social media and Discord. These connections have yielded invaluable insights that have directly influenced gameplay decisions.

Cristina Mereuta emphasized their commitment to the community: “As fans of the board game, we have always been aware of the passionate community around it. We wanted to connect with this fan base, learn what really excites players, and bring them the ultimate Ticket to Ride experience. Their input has been extremely valuable in validating the features and content roadmap we’re preparing for the game. We are committed to serving this community and we will continue our conversations with them throughout the game’s lifecycle.”

For Marmalade Game Studio and fans worldwide, the journey is just beginning. While the game will initially launch with the United States and Europe maps, players can anticipate a series of expansions that will introduce new locations and gameplay experiences. These expansions will include beloved fan-favorite maps and some exciting surprises unique to Marmalade’s digital adaptation.

The game is set to launch on Steam in November 2023, and players can already add it to their Wishlists to be among the first to embark on this thrilling ride!
