The Mighty Transarctica travelling on the snow and ice covered Earth. An Earth which is entirely hidden under an opaque layer of clouds and not seen the Sun for hundreds of years! Moving on the rails from town to town to make trade and a living, and to find and info on an ancient project codenamed "Sun"

It's the Intro screen from one of my favourite games and I decided it needed a better high resolution drawing so I made one!

Lineart:

Different Coloured version:

Used Tools: Paint Tool SAI and Wacom Bamboo Tablet. Recolored for the colouring

Well some people as well as myself are considering making a remake of this great game, but the project yet to start seriously!

It would be great. The game is still really fun, and atmosphere is really great, but there are some problems with game mechanics, especially with fighting other trains (but given when it was made it is pretty good game for it's time).

It's from a game developed almost 20 years ago in 1993

Really? That's pretty cool! What game was that? If it came out in 1993, I would have been a year old. :D

I've been 7 years old then :D

It's called Transarctica, but in some places Arctic Baron.
Here are my other re-drawings:

I haven't been logged into deviantart for several years! I did it just to send you some props for what you have done! We must be in similar age. I am very nostalgic about Transarctica - and its intro music which is so touchy.

Do you want to join a group who wants to re create this game? (new ideas, features etc)

If you have time look through this gallery of mine, I've re-drawn a few more Transarctica screens:

And I'm 26 years old :)
