Drive That Train

Live your train driving dreams on a London Underground simulator!

My role: Lead Game Designer

PRELOADED received a creative brief from the London Transport Museum to develop a physical train simulator installation as part of the Year of Engineering FUTURE ENGINEERS exhibit. The new Elizabeth underground line was to be showcased as part of the installation. The resulting exhibit was made so popular by enthusiastic young train drivers that PRELOADED was asked to make a ‘portable’ single-screen version that could be played anywhere in the museum!

I was on site to test the virtual train simulation, designed the track layout and developed console communication elements with the lead artist. Building a physical game to be played by thousands of young train enthusiasts challenged us gets hands on with train control systems and prototypes.
