During the ActuGaming French Direct, Goblinz Studio announced Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon developed by TeaForTwo, slated for release during Fall in 2020. In Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon you will be tasked with building and managing a large ski resort on a snowy mountain where the focus does not lie on profitability but on the satisfaction of your skiers, who just so happen to look so tiny they're downright adorable.
Pick a mountain that's to your liking, each with varying conditions. Start with building a ski lift, chair lift, or gondola to move your skiers to where they need to be. Place ski slopes befitting the right kind of skier, ranging from a large blue for families, long green for beginners, a small red with a slalom for the teenagers of the sports club, to dangerous black for experienced hotheads. Keep a mechanic's shop and hire labor to handle maintenance, and use the snowplow to keep the quality of the slopes up. You'll be challenged to keep a good variety as there are twelve different skier profiles that all want a different level of difficulty for their skiing experience. Ultimately, it's up to you to meet their needs and rise up to the challenge of transforming your ski resort into the best there ever was.
In the coming updates, there will be a falling system for skiers and a rescue team system to help these unfortunate souls out. New buildings will be made available to build, such as mountain restaurants, alongside possible threats such as avalanches.
The game will be available on both Steam and GOG.
