Hotel Magnate management strategy simulation going strong on Kickstarter for Linux, Mac, Windows PC. Thanks to indie developer Bastion Interactive. And also thanks publisher and developer behind The Universim, Crytivo. The crowdfunding campaign currently 47% funded with 21 days left. So we reached out for Linux support, not listed on the campaign.

Hotel Magnate caught my attention. But due to the fact that Linux support is not listed. Reaching out to Crytivo, we now have details.

As of the Linux version, the devs have little experience with this OS. So we don’t wanna make any promises right now regarding the availability of the game on Linux. The game engine is Unity.

Above all this is somewhat interesting. Since Steam and SteamDB both show Linux support. For that reason, I looked into the history section. Only to see Linux, Mac and Windows PC available as well.
Make of this what you will. Since Unity 3D is being used for development. The odds are fairly certain that we will see a native release for Hotel Magnate. The FAQ also supports a Mac Early Access release in March 2020. So by all means support and Wishlist the game on Steam in confidence.

Taking place in a nostalgic world with a retro ‘80s vibe. Hotel Magnate gives you a chance to build your hotel from the ground up. While customizing any details you desire to suit your tastes. Likewise, you can hire the right staff. Tend to the needs of the guests. Maintain rooms and machinery. And also break out your marketing chops. And in contrast, attracting different types of guests as your hotel grows. So you can develop a positive rating.

Since Hotel Magnate is a tycoon simulator game. Similarly you the tools to build and manage your own hotel, motel, luxury resort, or shabby shack. The game plan is to design the first proper hotel simulator. While allowing the player to create the hotel they want.

“We decided to make Hotel Magnate because of the severe lack of a good hotel simulator game. We looked around and saw all these great sim games in different scenarios like Prison Architect, Software Inc and The Sims. And thought – why isn’t there a good hotel sim to play? So we started to make one ourselves.” — developers from Bastion Interactive shared when asked about their motivation for making the game.

“We are trying to make a game where all your decisions matter. To create a diverse gameplay experience. Where, depending on how you play, you could end up running a dirty motel. A party resort or a luxurious retreat. We want the player to be fully in charge of the hotel. And remove as much linear gameplay as possible. Making each playthrough a different experience.”

They also point out some key elements to make Hotel Magnate. And almost certainly different from any other in its category.


  • Dynamic building system – highly customizable building and furniture systems allowing you to construct unique and intricate hotels
  • Tend to your guests’ needs and demands and attract wealthier clientele by improving facilities and securing better ratings
  • Hire employees to clean, serve, manage and maintain your hotel
  • Take control of the inner-workings of your hotel by managing room prices, wages, restaurants and many other operations
  • Become adept at marketing to attract more types of guests and generate buzz
