For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

Make your fortune by shuttling people and goods between destinations, during a century of technological progress that begins in 1930.

The story is that Microprose's partner in Japan, a company called Itochu, requested a Macintosh version for the Japanese market and funded the entire conversion, which was undertaken by Digital Amusement here in the UK. As part of the development process an English version was also created but Microprose chose not to publish it, so the only published Mac version was in Japanese.

- Chris Sawyer, creator of Transport Tycoon

Sushi The game's Japanese text does render correctly in an English System 7 environment. You can play without the CD by copying the game folder to your hard drive and using the "Transport Tycoon" application inside.

Version: 1.06.14

Earlier I uploaded a Japan only port of Life & Death II The Brain. And yes this is a nice find, Itochu games are insanely rare

Well now this is an unexpected and awesome find! Makes me wonder if there are other interesting ports are hiding in Japan

Unnecessary reposting of the original letter from Chris Sawyer

This company seems to be mostly known for the 3D PSX conversion of Transport Tycoon. MobyGames aren't necessarily the best source of truth, but they are tricky to find information on easily.

The only person I can find attached to the company is their 3D artist, who worked on two other games that seemed to have not shipped. Likely a small studio with hopes to expand towards building original works after a few contract porting jobs ala the OMNI Group, only they didn't make it.

Cool upload, thanks! And really a pity the English version was never released. I wonder where that English version is now and whether it is still rotting away on some 20+ yrs old hard drive. It would be awesome to add it to here. Does anyone know what happened to Digital Amusement and where the protagonists are now?
