Twice Circled, the developer of Big Pharma, has released their second game Megaquarium on Steam according to a news post on the game's Steam Community page.

Big Pharma was the first game developed by Twice Circled, and now they've released their second title Megaquarium. This game puts players on the path of managing an aquarium business from the ground up and all that entails: caring for fishes, meeting guests needs, and expanding your underwater empire. Have a look at the game's release date trailer to get an idea of what you can expect from the title:

Megaquarium features over 100 different kinds of aquatic animals for your guests to enjoy. You won't simply plop down prefabricated tanks; you'll be able to customize the tanks with decorations like rooms in any other game. These tanks will require support infrastructure like filters and properly-trained staff to maintain them. You'll also need to have a variety of amenities for your guests who have gotten tired of walking around looking at all the pretty fish and cephalopods. (I love any opportunity to use the word "cephalopod" when presented!)

Twice Circled is currently focused on squashing any remaining major bugs for the immediate period following its release along with improvements to the game's UI and systems based on feedback from players. The near future will see the implementation of Steam Cloud Saves and support for the Steam Workshop and mods. This is their first commercially self-published title and their second game overall.

If Megaquarium sounds like your kind of jam, you can pick it up for PC on Steam, the Humble Store, and GOG for $22.49 or your regional equivalent, a 10% launch week discount from the game's MSRP of $24.99. You can read more about the game by checking out its official website or watching some of the developer's vlogs on their YouTube channel.

What do you think of Megaquarium? Does the idea of running your own aquarium appeal to you or do you think these kinds of features are best left as a portion of a grander attraction like a theme park game? Let us know in the comments below!
