References to the game
The PC version of Frontier: Elite II
contained a reference to the upcoming Transport Tycoon
back in 1993. Some of the advertising hoardings in space ports announced "Coming soon... Chris Sawyer's Transport Game" ! Chris Sawyer
did the PC conversion of Frontier: Elite II
back in 1992/3.
The fan remake OpenTTD
from 2004 updates the game for later computer and mobile platforms.
was originally named I.T.S.
, which is short for "Interactive Transport Simulation". It was only because the game went to Microprose that it became a Tycoon
game, to tie in with their own Railroad Tycoon
