Choo Choo Charles is a brand-new open-world horror game in which you must endure and survive in a constant struggle to evade pursuit of a monstrous spider-legged train called Charles.
Honestly, if that one-sentence pitch isn't enough to get you invested in this utterly bonkers project from Two Star Games, I'm not sure I can help you. Maybe take a look at the trailer below to really get an idea of what Choo Choo Charles is all about: train-based terror.
"In Choo-Choo Charles, you're given the task of eradicating a monster known by the locals a 'Charles'", reads the game's Steam description. "Nobody knows where he came from, but they know why; to eat the flesh of puny humans."
On the face of it, Choo Choo Charles seems like a natural evolution of the endless Thomas The Tank Engine mods that have found their way into Resident Evil games over the years, Except of course here, the fact that Charles is a train is baked into the experience.
Over the course of your adventure you'll explore a large open-world island which you travel across on your very own, non-demon, train. You'll scavenge for parts to upgrade your train and speak with locals to gather clues - all with a view to the day that you can finally face Charles head on and destroy him once and for all.
Just be careful: leaving the safety of your train means you're completely vulnerable to an ambush from Charles, who could come scuttling over the hill towards you at any moment.
Choo Choo Charles honestly looks like a properly fascinating game, and I can't wait to check it out. Two Star Games has confirmed it's aiming for an early 2022 release, so be sure to keep an eye out. Charles is coming, whether you want it or not.
