“Didn’t expect Computer Tycoon to go so further into details, yet it was a pleasant surprise nonetheless. As the Steam debut of a single talented individual called Andris, Computer Tycoon aimed high and didn’t miss its target.”
8/10 – TICGN
“You get a lot of value for your game and you get a developer who listens to the community and tries to improve the game so that as many people as possible can enjoy this game. He doesn’t need to do a lot to make me enjoy this game since I’m already doing that!”
“While this game is still in its alpha stages, and so continues to be improved upon as time goes on, in its current form Computer Tycoon presents a solid, fun experience and I’m greatly enjoying my time with it. It hearkens back to the old Tycoon games with its simple concept while also presenting a fascinating and somewhat difficult business challenge to survive for over half a century in a technology field.”
ABOUT THIS GAME
Computer Tycoon is an Indie Business Grand Strategy Game about Computer Evolution and starting your own company in the 70s. Lead the research race until 2034, create the best hardware and operating system, take care of your infrastructure and even handle your marketing. Find video game gems to promote them on your platforms, conquer the global market and became literally immortal!
Computer Tycoon is different from other building/tycoon games because it has a "Grand Strategy Game" aspect. You will control your "computer empire" viewing a world map and managing resources.
Start your adventure in the 70s as a small business somewhere in the world. Learn more about hardware and software inventions that were the first steps to our current modern world, and get a taste of what is waiting for us in the future. Find the classic video games and help a new culture to be born.
In Computer Tycoon the decisions you make during development really matter. Take advantage of the technology, upgrade and design combinations! Does your product need more computing capacity or should you focus more on features, low price or prestige? Maybe change to portable computers or develop more easy-to-use Operating Systems? These decisions will have a major impact on the success of your company.
Expand your corporation in a smart way into multiple countries, build more offices, factories, laboratories and other required facilities. Poor countries have cheaper labor, but richer countries will give you more educated engineers.
Having the best product isn't enough. You must take care of people's needs or even "change their needs" using different marketing tools. Balance your budget well between development, production, marketing, and expansion.
We'll all die one day... but not in Computer Tycoon! You can win the game by becoming a monopoly or reaching the technological singularity if you are fast and healthy enough. Healthy? Yes, you have a small chance to die in the game, so you should regularly check your health.
