This monstrous RollerCoaster Tycoon park is all one giant maze

Every so often I'll come across an evil new RollerCoaster Tycoon creation that pulls me back in. The lasting power of this game and the imagination and dedication of its players never ceases to amaze. This park comes to us from RogueLeader2...   read

The delightfully odd Pizza Tycoon is now on GOG.com

I've never heard of Pizza Tycoon (also known as Pizza Connection) before today, and now I'm looking back on my life wondering where it all went wrong. This is a mid-'90s management sim in which you can work with organized crime to furt...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...   read

Planet Coaster has a big free winter update

Winter levels are some of my favorite themed levels in video games. Don't get me wrong, I could go the rest of my life without ever setting foot in snow again, and that'd be a life well lived. But in games? The sights and sounds are whimsi...   read

Underpay your staff and overcharge customers in Planet Coaster

It's almost November and that means it's almost time to see who will emerge victorious in the great debate, and all the discussion will end (because people just never shut up about these two). That's right, soon we'll finally see if Planet ...   read

Keep the old gods asleep in village manager The Shrouded Isle

The Shrouded Isle, an upcoming PC game from Moon Hunters creator Kitfox, raises an important question: "Whose blood will feed the old gods?" It's also an appropriate question, given that this is a "cult village manager," a genre I didn't y...   read

There's a scene in Goodfellas where the feds are going to raid the house, so Ray Liotta's wife, Karen, flushes $60,000 worth of cocaine down the toilet. Ray Liotta is not happy with this coke-disposal and gets a little bit upset. Karen...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World will make it this year

If there's one game left this year that I truly hope turns out well, it's RollerCoaster Tycoon World. Now that Atari is on its third developer, Nvizzio Creations, and has a release date (December 10, 2015), my hope is that everything will f...   read

Prison Architect is going to full release this October

Prison Architect is bloody brilliant, and it isn’t even done yet. It’s a Tycoon-style management sim with a firmly tongue-in-cheek sense of humour, and it’s been in early access for almost three whole years now. Since 201...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks way better

The last time I wrote about RollerCoaster Tycoon World, I said the game looked bad. Because, well, it did. I was hardly the only one, writer or otherwise, to say as much. Atari certainly heard. Flash forward to now, and we've got a far bett...   read

Review: Tropico 5

City and civilization games on consoles are a rare thing. I'm not exactly sure why that is, but my guess would be that traditionally, these games only enjoy their moderate success on PC. Whether it be the limitations of consoles themselves ...   read

Run the Japanese superhero TV studio of your dreams in Chroma Squad

Chroma Squad, the game about running your own Japanese superhero television studio, is now available on Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store for $14.99. What a cool niche. This is part tactical role-playing title, part management simulator ...   read

Sentai studio sim Chroma Squad coming April 30

Finally! Last we heard, Power Rangers' Saban was all bent out of shape about Chroma Squad and trying to either claim royalties on it or keep it from releasing. What a bummer that was for the XCOM-y mix of strategy game and management sim. ...   read

Review: Cities: Skylines

Mmm. There's no getting around it: RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks bad. I thought my expectations for the graphics were reasonable -- I've seen screenshots and they seemed adequate, if dated -- but in motion everything has become clear. Y...   read

Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offbeat premise goi...   read

War for the Overworld is the Dungeon Keeper sequel you wanted

When the recent Dungeon Keeper mobile game was released by EA, it went down like a barrel of stinking fish; it took the core concepts of the franchise and saddled them with a freemium model that made it a chore to play. Thankfully, UK stud...   read

Sentai studio sim Chroma Squad could be my XCOM replacement

Giant mecha battle! Japanese Chroma Squad trailer is great
