We've had tycoon games themed around trains, dinosaurs, and business. Now it's time for gamers to look inwards. Arcade Tycoon allows you to build and manage your very own gaming arcade. It'll launch for PC on August 22nd.
Arcade Tycoon sees players launching an arcade from humble beginnings. You'll start off with an arcade in your garage and expand until you're a legend in the business. You must keep your guests happy while making sure you're extracting as much money from them as possible. The game comes to us from indie outfit Vincent King Studios. You can check out a trailer for Arcade Tycoon right here:
Gameplay-wise, Arcade Tycoon is all about keeping your customers happy. You can build and maintain a huge variety of attractions including gaming consoles, pinball, and crazy golf, among others. As with most tycoon games, you'll have to hire the right staff and make sure you're keeping them sweet too. There's a tech tree to get stuck into, as well as some slightly sillier elements like hiring the Mafia for security. Vincent King Studios isn't aiming for realism, it seems. That's fine by us.
There'll be plenty of content to enjoy if you like Arcade Tycoon. Vincent King is promising a campaign spanning 16 levels. There will also be challenge modes to take on, as well as (of course) a sandbox mode in which to try out new and zany ideas. Multiple levels of difficulty will be on offer to cater for everyone from tycoon veterans to complete newbies. It's all wrapped up in a lovely isometric pixel art style that evokes the era in which arcades were king.
We're looking forward to giving Arcade Tycoon a try later this year. If this sounds like your bag, you can wishlist the game on Steam. Be sure to keep up with Arcade Tycoon's official Twitter account for more news too.
