Whistle Stop designer Scott Caputo has joined forces with Luke Laurie (Manhattan Project: Energy Empire) to make a new worker-placement strategy title. Whistle Mountain gives a bow to Whistle Stop, but in this standalone game, you leave the train tracks behind and go to the sky with blimps, dreadnoughts, and hot air balloons!
In Whistle Mountain, take your company's huge profits from all of that railroading and invest them in new technologies, deep in the Rocky Mountains where there is plenty of resources. Your workers create insane arrays of scaffolds and machines, upgrading your potential and gaining resources. As you build with the assistance of your airship fleet, the mountain's melting snow creates the water underneath to rise higher and higher, putting workers in danger and creating the tension on the dynamically-changing board.
Because the resources players gather are determined by what players build, each game advances differently, creating endless replayability. You have to choose between gaining new abilities and enhancements for your airships and workers or building all kinds of contraptions as fast as possible in order to gain victory on Whistle Mountain.
