You can start a game and play without once releasing the wheel
until you win or lose (it could last a month). The game takes place in continuous time
in a world of many miles of roads, where night succeeds day,
and road and weather conditions change right before your eyes.









    The scene is laid out in modern times. The place is somewhere close to a massive mountain. A network of roads, connecting small towns covers the region. Each town has a depot that puts in orders for goods, as they are consumed by the townsfolk. The cargo is delivered by trucks. The player is one of the long-haul truckers who runs about the region looking for a gainful order and peddles wares from town to town. The profit depends on the shortage of the merchandize delivered, so the quickest player makes the most.

    As the game goes on, a successful driver can upgrade the truck or change it to another one, and then is able to buy another (and another, etc.) truck and even hire a bankrupted rival. The strategic goal of the game is to monopolize the delivery business.
