Book bands, sign deals, fix toilets, and design the venue of a lifetime. Of course, no job is too big (or too gross) for a manager on the rise. Festival Tycoon challenges players to create, design, and manage their own music festival empire. All while growing from a backyard bonanza to an unmissable, Coachella level event.

One man indie studio Driehaus (aka Johannes Gäbler) details about Festival Tycoon. The upcoming festival builder sim will be released in Q3 this year. Due to make it’s way onto Windows PC, but Linux is included.

…I am pretty sure I’ll make a Linux port long before a console port.

Festival Tycoon will be in Early Access for at least one year. So there are no immediate plans for Linux support. As is usually the case with most games in Early Access. However, in the development process we can expect to see a port before consoles. Which does not have a definite release date for the Unity 3D game.
