'Festival Tycoon' Comes To Steam Early Access In Q3 2021 - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 20, 2021 @ 3:53 p.m. PDT

A fusion of builder, management and RTS, Festival Tycoon is all about hosting the wildest festival the world has ever seen in adorable, colorful voxels.

Create a festival empire, from humble beginnings in a tiny field you can build your cash flow as well as your reputation with attendees, bands and sponsors to make it to the big time. Or if that sounds like too much work you can craft your very own dream festival across a host of locations with a fun sandbox simulator!

Put your bargaining skills and musical taste to the test by hiring a range of bands across the likes of folk, rock and techno. Many of the bands expect special treatment and can leave dramatically if things don’t go their way.

Place tents, VIP bungalows, glamorous stages, toilets, festival decorations and more in the optimum formation for guest happiness! Remember to keep the crowds at bay with efficient railings - lest chaos reign.

Appease sponsors like banks, record labels and drink companies for grants, but beware, if you don’t meet their terms, there will be consequences!

Will you opt for easy to please tent-dwellers, or will you attempt to entice high-class VIP guests who pay more but demand a great deal in return? Be wary of your attendees' satisfaction, as unhappy punters are quick to take to social media!

One-man indie studio Driehaus (aka Johannes Gäbler) announced today that Festival Tycoon, his upcoming festival builder-sim, will be released in Q3 2021 on Steam Early Access, and will remain so for about one year.

“The current version offers the core game play elements of Festival Tycoon. The focus id on the base of every festival: The layout, line-up and visitors.The Early Access version is basically the base for all other features.
