Theme park building game 'Parkitect' beta 9 is out

By - | Views: 4,032

For those who like a relaxing experience, Parkitect is a solid choice. Beta 9 is out with a new ride, new default park terrain options and more.

The new Top Scan ride has been added to the game, it's a pretty nice ride so I took a little shot of it in action:

On top of that, there's also new maps to choose from when starting a new park, so you don't have to get a rather flat and boring map unless you specifically want that:

It's nice to have options like that, because not everyone will want to play arround with the terrain options.

Other Highlights:

  • added some more default sandbox scenario terrains
  • added guests can puke into trash bins
  • added guests are annoyed by employees resting on benches
  • added tunnel frames for shops and ride entrances built into vertical terrain
  • reduced game load time when having many blueprints installed by ~10-60 seconds
  • reduced how much park entrance fee guests are willing to pay if rides have high entrance fees as well
  • reduced congestion near the station ends of boat rides
  • improved loan balance

They also fixed quite a few bugs with this release.

I did encounter one issue in this version, where a map was all black apart from the water. Re-loading it fixed it, so I've reported it to the developer. Issues are to be expected while it's still in development, thankfully it was a quick fix.

You can grab it from Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

Maybe just because the game is already for 2 years ea and most people already told their opinion. It's like mentioning how great oxygen is as part of the air you breathe. :-)

I really love this game and how it develops over time. Really great work and well support for Linux.
