I feel like I just need to play Car Park Capital after discovering it today. Styled much like a late 90s retro tycoon game, it looks like it's from a different time and I love it.

You know the games I mean right? The classics like Transport Tycoon Deluxe, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Sim City and all the others from around that sort of time. Car Park Capital would fit right in there!

The car industry has identified a few places on earth that do not know THE FREEDOM OF CAR DEPENDENCY.
So they hired you to increase car sales and oil consumption.
How? By building the greatest car parks ever!

Turn neighborhoods into car parks, create the need for car commuting and parking.
Use propaganda to inform people on why they need it.

Learn to become a real tycoon.. Asphalt means freedom, right?

Have a look at their first trailer:

Highlights:

  • Real time simulation with hundreds of vehicles and citizens.
  • Per-person behavior simulation: Each person is different, except they're all bald.
  • Play into their minds with propaganda.
  • 3D map editing: Be creative when designing car parks or other buildings. You can make multi-floor structures.
  • Expand as the demand increases. Get rewarded accordingly.
  • Elevators!
  • Retro styled graphics with an aesthetic color palette.
  • Moddability: Scripts and content can be altered if you possess some Lua skills.
  • More features are in development.

The developer mentioned it's being built on Linux, so it will of course have Native Linux support.

You can wishlist / follow it on Steam.

I can understand the nostalgia for 90's graphics, although I don't feel it (I see a huge influence from Transport Tycoon here), but do we really need UIs from the 90's as well ?

Pause the trailer at exactly 0:36, zoom in on the bottom level, and you can just about make out Woodward and Bernstein waiting for Deep Throat!
