'Festival Tycoon' Steam Early Access Update Adds New Content And Optimizations

by Rainier on Jan. 27, 2022 @ 9:28 a.m. PST

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!

Indie developer Johannes Gäbler has today released a brand new update to Festival Tycoon, making this the sixth major update since launching into Early Access back in September 2021. Festival Tycoon will also be 25% off during the Lunar New Year sale starting at 10 am PST / 1 pm EST / 6 pm GMT today.

The Full Moon Party update introduces a new worker type; The Band Coordinator, on hand to welcome those Z and A list bands to your festival, get them settled in, and ensure they’re well looked after before hitting the stage. The update also includes a new genre rating scheme for end of Festival results, a list of optimisations, as well as fixes and tweaks as suggested by the games ever-growing community.
