'Go-Go Town!' Available On Steam Early Access, Full Launch In Q2 2025 - Trailer

Plan, Build...Prosper? As mayor, it’s up to you to breathe life back into this rundown tourism destination, well past its prime. Just like its residents...

Construct shops, hire staff, automate deliveries with couriers, and attract tourists to town, all while managing infrastructure and avoiding catastrophes!

Who said being Mayor was going to be easy?! Get those hands dirty; terraform the land, play with power tools, construct fresh roads and shiny new shops, attract tourists, and juggle any unexpected challenges and disasters… Every decision and action made shapes the future of your town.

But even the busiest of bees need a chance to relax! Hop in your car and head into town where you can get to know the eclectic townsfolk, dance like no one’s watching, beat your high score at the arcade, indulge in a cheeky hotdog, pop a wheelie while riding your bike around, or even high-five a cow (if that’s your thing).

Build

With some guidance from the elderly residents of Go-Go Town, you’ll soon learn the ‘ins and outs’ of being town Mayor, starting with constructing and repairing buildings. It’s all in the name of encouraging more tourists to visit!

But don't worry, work will be a breeze with your tools - chainsaws, drills, trimmers, leaf blowers, and other power tools are at your disposal.

And once you’ve repaired the run-down buildings, decorated the town, and constructed a few new shops, it’s time to put your planning hat on.

Manage

You’ll need to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Making decisions about what shops to build, who will run them, how the shops will generate an income, and how to manage the supply chains to the shops, all while making sure your infrastructure is sound to avoid any major catastrophes.

Will you build an arcade with a dance game and neon lights? But then again, wouldn’t it be great to have a burger joint in town? And what goes better with a burger, than somewhere to buy ice cream and milkshakes. And what about souvenirs? Who wouldn’t want a memento from Go-Go Town!

Today’s the day! Go-Go Town! is now available through Steam Early Access, and will remain so for about a year.

"Thank you all so much for all your support over our whole development process so far: through five playtests, lots of bugs squashed, tons of community feedback, and more. We’re so excited about what the Early Access journey will bring, and glad you all are along for the ride."

“Go-Go Town! is a game that you can experience right now. You can play from start to end, with the full gameplay loop in place. This is thanks to the year of playtests we've already run before even entering EA!”

Because there’s a lot of machines and recipes and things of that nature to keep track of, there's now an official WIKI. It’s a thing of beauty, and a great reference point when you can’t remember exactly which veggies go into a Relaxo Blast (carrot + beetroot). And please feel free to contribute and edit to your heart’s content, but be warned: spoilers abound!

If you want a refresher of what our roadmap for the next year (ish) looks like, here you go:

Automate

Running a town will keep you busy, but don't worry - Your residents are eager to lend a hand!

Expand your industries by hiring miners, fishermen, lumberjacks or farmers; Boost your towns commerce by hiring shopkeepers, artisans, and hotdog sellers; And get those goods flowing to where they need to be with a team of couriers!

With the right combination of tools, strategies, and infrastructure your town will be a well-oiled machine.

Expand

Soon you’ll find that your busy little town needs more room to grow!

Through the tech tree you’ll be able to unlock features like terraforming, which will allow you even more control over how you grow your town. Larger houses, buildings such as art galleries, and a greater variety of objects that allow you to add your own personal touches to each and every block.

Prosper

But all of the hard work you’ve put into Go-Go Town will not go unnoticed!

Word about your deeds will spread, and soon tourists will be flocking to town. With money to spend, they will be looking to Go-Go Town to provide places where they can get food and be entertained, benches where they can rest, and beautiful scenery that they can post on social media.

Some of them may just love it enough that they’ll want to move into town.

Hold on to your hard hats, roll up your sleeves, and explore the delightful world of 

Go-Go Town! is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PC (Steam) in Q2 2025.
