Hello Indie Game Lovers, Nerds and Nerdettes
my name is Feniks and this is the Indie Game News. Today we look at Tycoon genre. Please take your time and stay focused for
next few minutes as always you can find all the relevant links in the video description. Let me just quickly start off by wishing you
all Happy New Year and hope you have a great year ahead. From myself my kids finally are both in school
and nursery so I will have more time to record more videos initially I will aim for consistent
video each Saturday Morning of UK time. Without further delay here are the latest
news from past month. Prison Architect have seen a latest update
to the game. Over 2 years since it’s full time release
and game still gets updated many Early Access titles could learn a lot from that. Game introduces Warden Mode a bit of a mix
between escape mode and regular game. You play as your own avatar the warden you
will face all the risk of being on the grounds including potential death from the hands of
displeased prisoners. You will be able to issue all the building
commands and tell your workers where to place facilities but will be limited by fog of war
effect. Meaning you can only see what surround your
avatar and nothing else. You will be able to protect yourself by equipping
armour, weapons and recruiting bodyguards to ensure your visits on the grounds don’t
end up in early death. Main mode will see some additions and changes
as well. We will see floor signage. You can create routes for your prisoners and
staff to follow to better manage traffic flow in your prisons. We will see addition to modding support, balance
changes particularly around education and work limitations. We will also see some minor bug fixes. Additionally Prison Architect is currently
75% off in winter sale so it may be great time to grab it. Mashinky has seen 3rd era added to the game. We will see addition of diesel and crude oil
as well as their products and goods. We will see addition of 6 new wagons dedicated
to transport of those items. Addition of oil wells, refineries and factories
and their extensions. With update there are some changes to the
way game runs. Town growth is now affected by the availability
of services such as mail and goods. We will see addition of town shop, support
for placing industry,headquarters. Finally obviously we will see addition of
new engines, building sounds and quests. Update also comes with bunch of bug fixes
and optimisation changes. Rise to Industry is back with Alpha 4. We will see the first iteration of career
mode which involves the all-new player specialisation and tech tree focused on player progression. Developers have added Boats: A slow but high-capacity
transport alternative to the game. We will see new influence system that will
affect the way town perceives your organisation it will affect prices and can cut you off
from trading all together. Maps will now be separated into regions and
you will require new permits to expand to new region and be able to build there. Apart of that we will see new models, new
industry – copper mine. Improved economy and graphical improvements

system that we will present below. Push back vehicle is now required for medium
stand operation. Make sure you purchase enough push back trucks
for your airport. Players will have access to greater range
of furniture like hand dryers for toilets, few new shelfs, high speed belts and many
more. Finally you can now save the games to cloud

January this year. In Railway Empire, you will create an elaborate
and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled, and buy or build
railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel
network ahead of the competition. You’ll also need to hire and manage your
workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300
technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures
and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations. To keep your business on track you’ll have
to survive against up to three rival tycoons. To get to the top you may have to resort to
more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial
espionage. Our final game for this month comes is Parkasurus
a low poly dinosaur theme park builder, 3rd Jurassic Park-like symulator announced in
past 3 months. Developers of this game take more light hearted
approach with colorful graphics and cheesy music but promise lots of fun. Parkasaurus challenges the player to plan,
design and construct fabulous exhibits that maximize both the happiness of their Dinos,
and the park guests’ satisfaction and willingness to spend money! Starting with only a dream and an abandoned
park the player will discover groundbreaking technologies, new attractions and a special
bond with each of their Dinos, all captured in stunningly beautiful modernized 3D flat
design graphics. In this game you will have to design habitats
to suit your dinos needs, manage your infrastructure and level up your employees but also switch
to to first person view to deal with a rampage caused by dinos escapes, time travel to gather
the best eggs for your collection of dinosaurs and deal with dynamic weather changes. Visually and gameplay wise game reminds me
of a craziness and fun of slime rancher combined with parkitect. Will definitely keep my eyes for any further
updates. Game is set to release on early access this
spring. Okay guys that is it in this month Indie Game

  1. Great video Feniks! Really cool and amazing games and updates this month. Iā€™m so excited for Mashinky and Railway Empire. Thank you so much.

  2. i think you should consider new content and new game, since most gamers doesnt care very old game even with new update. Introduce new game, new title (where most gamers can play straight away). Well unreleased game is exciting, but no point since we cant buy or play the game. Just my opinion thanks šŸ˜€

  3. Why so many dinasaur games this year, although this one is my favourite so far, definitely something I wanna play! Great video denims as allways.
