The video game, which is similar to Minecraft, was created entirely by Johannes Gäbler over the course of two years. Gameplay is based on the concept of creating and managing your own music festival, complete with stage setups, visitors, and a lineup of artists. You’ll also have to keep your company’s reputation intact while attracting the attention of rock stars and major sponsors to your cause.
This means the game is in an early access stage, which means it is still in its infancy as far as development. There will undoubtedly be glitches and bugs, but if you want to contribute to the game’s development, you can purchase it right away. Festival Tycoon is currently only available on the Windows operating system, however.
Game prices will continue to rise as Gäbler adds new features and content to the game, he has predicted.
Festival Tycoon includes a “Supporter Pack,” which can be purchased for $4.99 to add even more features to the game. According to Gäbler, it does not provide anyone with an unfair advantage. It is possible for players to contribute additional funds to the game’s development as well as to Gäabler by purchasing downloadable content.
According to Gäabler, the package contains the following items:
• An in-game thank you card from me, the developer.
• A special role in the Festival Tycoon Discord server.
• A supporter Pack flair via Discord Rich Presence (others can see you’re a supporter via the ‘Playing Now’ screen in Discord).
• A special in-game item only available via the Supporter Pack DLC.
Festival Tycoon is available for purchase on Steam for $9.99.
