UK Prime Minister visits Train Simulator 2015 developer in support of 'Help to Grow' program

Did he simulate well?

The UK's Prime Minister David Cameron has taken time from his busy schedule to make an appearance at Dovetail Games, the developer behind Train Simulator. During his visit, Cameron was shown Train Simulator 2015, Dovetail Games Fishing and Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition during his visit.

If you're wondering, why the Train Simulator studio was picker over Euro Truck Simulator or Farming Simulator, it's because those developers are simply not in the UK and thus cannot be a part of the the government's Help to Grow program.

This UK based program is designed to help smaller businesses grow into medium sized businesses with a little extra financial support. Does this mean Dovetail will get some financial support? Is that Train Simulator 2016 on the horizon?

"Businesses like Dovetail Games are a crucial part of our long term economic plan for the country and it is thrilling to come and see the role they are playing in Britain's economic recovery," Cameron said of the developer. "Here is a business that six years ago employed eight people and now employs 98. It is growing by about a third every year and wants to stay right here in Medway and continue its expansion and success."

The real question is, will he be buying a copy of Train Simulator 2015?
