Additional European Languages for RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe Now Live!

We are pleased to announce that we have added French, Italian, German, and Spanish translations for RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe to Steam! These additional languages are available for FREE to all who own the game through Steam. By buying the game once on Steam you get access to all 5 languages and without any added cost.

For most players, Steam will automatically recognize what language your Steam Client is set to and adjust the game's language to that, if it is available. However, if you notice that the game's language has not changed automatically, you can manually change it by going to your Game Library in Steam > Opening the Game Properties > Clicking Languages > and Setting the Language of your Choice. The game will then re-download in that language.

Please note, although we have tested this extensively and did not see any issues with Saved Games, you should as a precaution backup your Saved Game before switching.

Rollercoaster Tycoon the best of the rollercoaster creating games! If you never played this in your childhood, your parents probably didn't love you or you weren't old enough to comprehend how awesome this was/is, Now you can experience it whether you played it back in the day or are new to this!! Have fun building awesome rollercoasters that visitors are to afraid to get on, that took you an hour to create! You can build cool food courts with fountains and flowers with a random pyramid built in the middle because WHY NOT!?! its all to make your park looks cool! You can also build death traps! do you remember those visitors to afraid to go on you really cool rollercoaster that took you forever to make!?! why don't you just go kill them off by build a rollercoaster that launches them into the air and then they hit the ground in a ball of flames! That will teach them next...well it will teach the other visitors!! In conclusion this game is awesome and cheap and it has the same stuff back in the day! i give this 1,000 visitors and a Park Rating of over 900!!! or 10/10

A classic! I just wish the resolution options were up to date.

2014-05-26: The game has a few shortcomings, being as old as it is. Some things I think might make the game more up-to-date are:
- Widescreen support
- Buildings where staff spend their stand-by time, instead of having your staff trekking all around the park. This applies to technicians in particular.
- Ability to choose elevation when placing buildings
- Mouse wheel zooming
- More/improved customer/visitor statistics and information overviews
- Better feedback on game mechanics like customer happiness, popularity and satisfaction.
- More detailed economic insight/control, including salaries, maintenence costs and infrastructure.
