Like Rollercoaster Tycoon? Try Steampark!

Yes, I said it  (and I’m sure I’ll say it again) I absolutely love Rollercoaster Tycoon and have an ever lasting attachment to the game since it’s debut in 1999. I have gone back to the game more than the number of times equivalent to my age (I’m 23). Every few years I find myself obsessing about a month of my time into that game. From start to finish completing every objective on every level. The latter half of this franchise hasn’t impressed me as much as did this first one. So what do I do when I’ve exhausted this game? (which will never happen)

That’s right, resort to analog gaming to get my fix of the tycoon/business simulation. While not necessarily articulating the simulation of time, visitors, and setting area control of your mechanics, Steampark guarantees any rollercoaster tycoon fan a fun and enjoyable time. The dice rolling for action points, and meeple color assigments translate time spent in game and which rides are too scary for visitors. It’s nice to see there is an experience outside of the video game industry that can excite like Rollercoaster Tycoon. Steam park pits you and your opponents against each other as you build the best park for your robot visitors (this game is steam punk themed). By using dice in order to articulate time to build, efforts in management, and park maintenance, you will buy rides, expand your parks land, set up stalls, and of course, clean your park when it gets dirty.
