SimAirport [Steam, Official Site] aims to be a modern tycoon-style game where you build and manage every aspect of an airport. It's coming to Linux and the developers are looking for some testers.

This is the latest video I could find from the developer to show it off:

QuoteFor those if you interested in playing SimAirport on Linux -- we'd like to get a few of you to help us get the Linux build tested.

We're just a few days away from a deployable test build that functions, but we'd like to enlist your help in really testing & pushing the build so that we're not spending too much of our time configuring drivers for our Linux machine's hardware! =)

See their full post about it here. They include some details on how to get in touch with them!

It looks like another title in the spirit of Prison Architect and RimWorld with the character art, which is pretty fun to see.

About the game
QuoteSimAirport is a modern tycoon-style simulation & management game where you design, build, and manage an airport.

Construct an airport from the ground up, hire your staff, choose airlines to work with, customize flight schedules, build out your infrastructure -- baggage conveyer systems & luggage services, public access roads, fuel pipelines, runway upgrades and maintenance, aircraft navigation aids, hangars and service vehicles, etc -- and much more.

So , basically, Prison Architect's younger cousin ?

Grampa Dwarf Fortress must be shaking his cane at the young whipersnappers...

That's pretty cool. I like that art style, and I have wondered in the past why no one has done an airport management simulation game yet.

Now if someone could just remake Sim Farm from my childhood I'd be happy. :)

Looking forward to it, I have watched it a bit on youtube, and want to try it myself.

I've watched a few streams from this game. It looks fun, but needs quite a bit of work for the full thing.

I'd prefer Sim Ant to be honest. :P

Alas, I just noticed this article now, and they no longer need testers.

At least the good news is that they had overwhelming response.

An overwhelming response for a "free game". I'm not too sure everyone of the responders actually realise that testing is supposed to be more than just playing.

Another game from my childhood! I've love that too. :)

I just mentioned Sim Farm because someone at least already tried to do something like Sim Ant, even if the Kickstarter (which I backed) didn't succeed.
