Try the updated free alpha of ski resort builder Snowtopia

By - | Views: 16,387

Snowtopia, currently in development with a free version available while it's early on continues to be a promising new building sim that has you build a ski resort.

You've built theme parks, massive roller coasters, zoos and all sorts but a ski resort is another slightly different twist on the building and management sim. A genre I love because they're great fun to relax with and zone-out somewhat while you what everything. Snowtopia definitely has that enticing feel to it, the appreciation for people-watching as they all slide around on the snow.

The latest free build made available on May 22 adds in maintenance buildings, snow groomers and related mechanics. Ski lifts can now break too, so you're going to need some people working to fix it all up. The developer said they also improved the lines and flow of skiers and there's an added German localization.

A lot more is planned to come before it has a traditional Early Access release, which should hopefully be later this year. Going by a roadmap they shared you're going to need security personnel, there will be a research system, new animations for the skiers, more buildings, more objectives and so on. Impressive so far though and seems to work wonderfully already.

If you're someone who loves to perfect everything in building sims, you're going to enjoy trying to work out the perfect slopes.

Try it free on You can also follow on Steam for the eventual release there.
