BIONICLE PARK TYCOON 2
(Fancy banner to come when I'm not feeling so lazy. )
Back on the old forums, I made a couple of games, some of them finished, some of them not (RIP Bionicle Swarms...) However, my biggest success was Bionicle Park Tycoon, a business-strategy game where you make a theme park in the Bionicle world, with helpful tips from Mata Nui (President of Bionicle ParK), Lewa (Ride Manager), Mr. Zesk (Shop Manager), Nuju (Finance Director) and so on. There were about 10 rides or so to build, a couple of shops, and so on. Nothing huge in scope like Roller Coaster Tycoon, but hey, I'm just one man. (Although technically the original RCT was made almost entirely one man too, Chris Sawyer, but that's beside the point)
Well, today I'm officially announcing the sequel: Bionicle Park Tycoon 2! (A more creative name might be coming later...)
This game will be much, much bigger. Not only are there more rides, many more shops, and a new type of attraction called sideshows (in case anyone doesn't know, those are games people play at a theme park to win prizes, like those strength tests or shooting gallery thingies), but there will also be a campaign, with unlockable items as prizes! The gameplay will be more complex as well: everything you build with the exception of scenery items will have a daily upkeep, which raises or lowers depending on the speed or length of the ride. Roller coasters are no longer as limiting to build, too. In the first game, there was a set number of pylons for each roller coaster; no more, no less. Now you can be more creative: with each coaster you can have anywhere from five to twenty-five pylons, creating the coaster of your dreams! Also, the user interface is blue this time, whereas it was red before.
While a playable demo still isn't ready yet, i do have screenshots and a video! I'll try to get the demo ready ASAP.
Gameplay Video 1 - This shows me starting a park, build a Teri-Go-Round, a Mukau Burger shop, and a Krana Koaster. Yes, those are the only three things buildable now, in case you were wondering, but that'll change soon, I promise!
Gameplay Video 2 - This shows what will be the very last scenario in the campaign: build a theme park in the ZONE OF SHADOWS!
And, just in case anyone's curious or wants to relive playing the original, here's a download link for the first Bionicle Park Tycoon.
More to come! LOTS more! What do you think so far?
