Indie game developer András Illés is eager to announce the official release of Computer Tycoon. Since the compelling strategy games available on Steam. Which is also inspired by Steve Jobs. Therefore, a “torrented” version of the game has been spread across the internet. Containing a non-malicious retro-surprise to its players. Further information is available HERE. The games not to be confused with PC Building Simulator.
So of course the games development uses Unity 3D. But what about a Linux release?
“I plan to create OSX version for sure, and maybe Linux as well. Depends on the game’s reception.”
Therefore, with enough support, chances are we’ll see a Linux and even a Mac release. The games Steam page only supports Windows. So we’ll have to comments and Tux love in the Discussions thread is in order.
There is also another thread post that explains Mac and Linux. Explaining, “I’m alone in the development, and I have very limited resources.” Still, it’s funny, that Mac influence yet only Windows support. 😛
While Computer Tycoon evolves around the growing computer industry in the 70’s. The player gets to lead the research race until 2034. Also creating the best hardware and operating system. Taking care of your infrastructure and even handle your marketing. Find video game gems to promote them on your platforms. All while you conquer the global market and became literally immortal. Players control the game from a world map. Which the objective is to control available resources.
Computer Tycoon is the first game about the computer revolution. So decisions you make truly matter. Take advantage of the technology. Upgrade and architecture combinations. Does your product need more computing capacity? Should you focus more on features, low price or prestige? Will you focus on portable computers? Or develop Operating Systems? Therefore, like real life, your decisions will have an impact on the success of your company.
