Everything You Need to Know About Derail Valley
What is the purpose of the game?
The main goal is to be successful with completing jobs within the prescribed time frame while managing your locomotives efficiently. There’s also the option to buy licenses which will allow you access more work opportunities and new locomotives.
The gameplay involves driving massive trains through challenging natural environments and features unrestricted walking in or out of locomotives at any point during a playthrough. Coupling and uncoupling trains are other mechanics involved with making successful deliveries along with servicing them after derailings occur. It also supports playing on regular PCs using mouse & keyboard or flat screens but truly shines when played in virtual reality due its hand controls being able to truly simulate being inside cabins of trains.
While Derail Valley doesn’t boast much in terms of visuals it still looks visually pleasing nonetheless – especially when seen from inside cabs when playing via Virtual Reality headsets such as Oculus Rift & HTC Vive etc… Additionally, sound effects are quite good too which helps create an all-round immersive experience for players who opt for VR gaming sessions over playing on regular PCs & flat screens either way it remains mostly relaxing no matter how one chooses to play it.
Is It Worth Playing?
All things considered - yes! If you love Train Simulators then Dieal Valley should definitely be added into your collection as its something worth experiencing since most other Train Simulator games tend not offer anything more than just A <> B delivery simulations – which can get boring after some time if there’s nothing else involved other than that.
However, Derail Valley does provide enough alternate activities such as walking stations trying to find routes without railcars building up wagons with multiple contracts etc…which keeps things interesting - plus even though there isn't multiplayer yet (hopefully coming soon) the small grind for money by taking different delivery contracts still makes this game enjoyable.
Overall despite some bugs here & there related mainly towards physics issues causing unexpected derailments resulting in fines that wipes out all earned wages so far until they get fixed eventually hopefully sooner rather than later though!
