At first you're met by a charming individual who claims she is rather busy and has to arrange some business, but she mentions that you can tag along for the ride. You say yes, and then your journey begins.
You'll learn all about building roads, accepting contracts for transport and building the vehicles needed to transport those goods in the beginning, so it's easy to catch on quickly so you can really start building all kinds of stuff and developing your towns to make even more money and become the biggest tycoon of transportation services there ever was.
Transport Empire boasts three types of vehicles, all of which you'll have to use at some point to transport goods to other towns near or far. You'll start by building your first train, then later on you move onto building the steamboats and airships as well.
You'll have to gather resources to build up different things, and as you grab supplies for developing roads or other materials, as well as build towns and collect the rewards for completing tasks, you'll level up which will allow you to do more and complete things faster.
Each task will have a cost and a reward associated with it, and it will also have a designated about of time to which it will take to complete said task. Once you're finished, you can collect your reward(revenue)which can be more materials, money, and you'll always get some amount of experience.
