Best Tycoon and Business Management Indie Games –  Indie Game News April 2018

Hello Indie Game Lovers, Nerds and Nerdettes
my name is Feniks and this is the Indie Game News. Before we start remember to check video description
for additional information. Today we look at Tycoon genre. We start this month with updates of last month Academia School symulator has seen some good
updates this month. Developers added Guidance Counselor. Back in a day detention and punishment were
tools for teaching students how to behave. In modern school we understand that punishment
is not the most effective method. Your students will be able to attend counseling
sessions to help the work through their issues at school. Of course detention is a cheaper option and
is still available for the players as alternative. Another new addition is cutting classes. Some students will attempt to skip classes
and avoid education altogether, keeping your students in school will no require vigilance
to catch those escapees early. In addition we will see improvements to faculty
lounge, new grands improvement to UI and optimisation. Also my sources tell me that developers are
about to drop a big update to the game this month so you may want to keep an eye on it. SimAirport is 1 year old now. Game has come a long way since its original
release on 7th of March last year. We have seen addition of z levels adding multiple
floor buildings. Developers added multiple systems Fuel Systems,
Baggage Systems, Upkeep Systems, PA Systems, Vendor Scheduling and many more. We have seen improvements to weather, lightning,
optimization and graphical interface rework. If you got this game year ago it is definitely
worth coming back now after a year of development. Developers have been very active and responsive
and currently SimAirport is sitting at respectable 76% positive review score out of over 1200
reviews submitted. Surviving Mars has been released on 15th of
March unfortunately game has left fans rather disappointed. It is rare for Paradox studio to miss the
mark and I hope that with this feedback we will see changes to the game. Over all the greatest downfall of the game
is lack of polish and mid end game. Game quickly becomes repetitive and it’s
more of the same with just expanding on the same winning pattern. At the same time game clashes attempts at
being hardcore and casual game with mechanics that can crush entire colony but player has
no chance of knowing problem is there before it’s to late to fix it. In my opinion surviving mars is a game that
lacked clear design decision in what it wanted to be and ended up being a bunch of things
without clear direction. Game also greatly lacks replayability each
game is similar to the other and once you build 2 or 3 colonies you every new colony
will be exactly the same. Keep your eyes for the updates but for now
I can’t recommend it. Time for announcements of upcoming games. Farm manager is set to release on 6th of April. Your job is to manage your own farm. You will expand your farm business, produce
cheap and sell your products at high prices. Control the land cultivation process, select
the best employees, buy the most appropriate farm equipment, raise livestock and process
the harvested crops. Various camera modes allow you to enter into
a strategic view as well as to look at the world through the eyes of the employee. You have a choice between nearly 40 machines
and the same number of buildings. Starting from farm buildings and barns to
processing plants and factories. You will be able to specialize in production
of various foods like juices and frozen food. Game will feature mod and steam workshop support. StarUp Freak is set to release on 13 of April In Startup Freak you take the role of a budding
entrepreneur, and grow your very own software startup from humble beginnings to a multi-million
dollar company. Along the way you will have to overcome countless
challenges, from building, testing and securing your product, to devising the ideal marketing
strategy and securing investment. Game features simple 2d graphics we had few
different start up games over past few months but I feel this one is worth your attention,
some of the mechanics and mini games look interesting and may bring breath of fresh
air to the genre. Just remember it is Early Access Title buy
at your own risk and if in doubt wait for reviews. There is some big news from jurassic Park
Evolution. Jeff Goldblum will reprise his role as Dr.
Ian Malcolm in the game news that will surely please many fans of the franchise. Additionally over past couple of months we
have seen many videos from developers showcasing different dinosaurus available in the game
as well as some interviews showing the game. Finally we have a date of the release set
for 12th of June. My only concern with the game is the tycoon
aspect of it. Planet Coaster was amazing game when it came
to sandbox building, customization and building amazing parks and decoration but management
side of the game was severely lacking and left me disappointed. Since we are on the dino park topic time to
looks at Parkasaurus. Parkasaurus although visually less impressive
than Jurassic Park Evolution is still very aesthetically pleasing and developers put
focus on management and fun part of the game. While tests are being done for a full core
game before Early Access release developers have tested baby models of dinosaurs with
brand new models, breeding and growing mechanics. Additionally we will see personality in your
exhibits. Each species has their own dino thoughts and
inclinations, even individual dinos have slightly different personalities. Is your Stegosaurus extra shy? Well you might need to develop an exhibit
with more privacy. Parkasaurus is set to release on Early Access
within next couple of months and will allow you to design your own exhibits, manage employees
and monetize guests in various ways, deal with chaotic dino escapes and even travel
in time to steal dinosaurs eggs. I have a feeling we’ll be coming back to this
title several times over the course of this year. Okay guys that is it in this month Indie Game
News. If you know of any other games that should
be featured in next month updates or you released a game yourself please contact me at [email protected]

  1. There's some decent indie games coming out in the next few months. With Surviving Mars that's always come out I'm really excited to get the game myself and play it 🙂 But I'm especially excited for Jurassic Park Evolution, that brings me back to the Operation Genesis days. I just hope you can fill the park with visiotrs and then delete the entrance and release the Velociraptors. I did that all the time on Genesis. Great update man! 🙂
