I've been waiting on this day for quite some time! Parkitect is a truly great theme park management sim and it's getting set to leave Early Access.

November 29th is the day and this will also see the game finally get the campaign mode. Sounds like it's going to be pretty interesting too, with 26 scenarios with unique and varied settings that is spread across a world-map with branching paths.

Absolutely love seeing Windows, Mac and Linux displayed so clearly together in a trailer like that. Also, that was a fantastic trailer. If I wasn't already playing it and loving it that would certainly have grabbed my attention.

After release, it sounds like they still have more exciting updates planned on top of the usual bug fixes so I'm pretty keen to see what else they can add it. There's a lot in it even without a campaign mode.

Is it worth picking up even now? Just do it! The best place right now is Humble Store which gives you a DRM free copy and a Steam key (plus it's on sale), otherwise GOG and Steam.

The price at release will be $29.99/€24.99 (they didn't give out the expect £ price).

Hats off to these devs. I've followed this game from well before there was a Linux version available and bought it the moment they put out a Linux build. And after all that time they appear to have done everything right. It probably helped that this was initially just a demonstration on a forum of how you could quickly put together some kind of coaster sim. When it was continued into an actual project it was a work of passion. Along the way their goals got bigger, listened to all the feedback, but never got beyond whatever they could manage. Pretty much a perfect execution of early access. I hope it does well, they deserve it.

This is one obvious purchase. They'll have to really really fail on launch for me not to buy this right away.

Campaign mode?

I'm sold. Will support it just for this alone.



It hurts so much to see the many great (gameplay wise) sandbox games that don't offer a campaign.
And usually it's not because the devs don't wnat it, but because it's damn hard and expensive.

I always get a little triggered when game devs, publishers and games media use the term "PC" as if it was synonymous with Windows. If a game is Windows only, then it should say Windows, not PC, because the latter includes Windows, macOS, Linux and more.

Oh believe me, this is a daily conversation I get into with developers and publishers. Even some people who should really know better, end up sending me press releases that only say "PC" or simply "Steam".

This one has been waiting in my wishlist for launch. It doesn't matter if it's good or meh since I just need to fill that missing Rollercoaster Tycoon position.

Oh hey hey, I didn't notice this game. The trailer has this Theme Park World feeling to it.

Oh boy, Christmas comes early this year.
As an old-school rollercoaster tycoon fan (1&2 but not 3) I will finally get this.
I only waited for the campaign.
