Riverdeep today announced the upcoming release of School Tycoon an all-new life simulation strategy game that presents kids with the ultimate fantasy ? the opportunity to rule their own school. The product combines classic "build and management" simulation with wacky and hilarious comic mischief, as kids endeavor to balance the super-cool elements they have created within their school, with the typical administrative policies and procedures required to run an orderly campus. School Tycoon will be available this fall on Windows for a suggested retail price of $29.95.

School Tycoon sends players on a mission to design, build, and master the Ultimate 5-Star School Empire. After choosing one of the challenging scenarios or selecting open-play mode, kids will have the opportunity to construct an incredible campus paradise with a wacky school environment. Starting with an administrative building and some simple classrooms, successful players can eventually unlock wild and outlandish buildings such as a skateboard park for their school. They can hire interesting teachers, create their own students, and even go inside the cafeteria to watch a food fight. Each choice they make will have associated costs and consequences. Outlandish things can happen in what may appear to be a well-planned school utopia. Players will face numerous challenges as they endeavor to keep students and teachers happy, maintain a balance between high grade point averages and athletic prowess, and ultimately master the school of their dreams.

"The concept of giving kids control over something they feel controls them was incredibly appealing in the focus groups we conducted for this product early on," said Joe Roberts, president of worldwide products and marketing for Riverdeep. "Kids had the wildest ideas for possible school environments, which helped to fuel ideas behind some of the wacky scenarios we created in the product," continued Roberts. "We feel confident School Tycoon will be a truly unique product in this growing category of entertainment software."
