Solo indie developer Johannes Gäbler has published today an official reveal announcing that Festival Tycoon, their upcoming festival builder-sim, will be released later this year on PC via Steam.
Alongside this announcement, a demo is also available as part of the Steam Game Festival, letting players get their hands at the creation of a perfect music festival on a fully unlocked map.
In Festival Tycoon, booking bands, setting up stages, organizing the line-ups, layout tents and portaloos is some of the many mechanics one will need to master to build the festival of their dreams.
Players will be able to create, design, and manage their own music festival empire, starting from humble beginnings in tiny fields to a Coachella-sized event.
A fusion of builder, management and RTS, Festival Tycoon is all about hosting the wildest festival the world has ever seen in adorable, colourful voxels.
- ? Design the optimal festival layout: Place tents, VIP bungalows, glamorous stages, portaloos, festival decorations and more!
