More information on v1.2!

Where is the update at?
We are still working on the update and at the moment we really can't say exactly when it will be made available. A lot of the update is implemented and looks to be very promising. We want to give you a sneak peak at a few of the things this update brings.

We estimate this update will be available by the end of this week.

Tension Relief
After a hard day of jamming in the studio your band will need to find a way to release some of that pent up tension. It's up to you to decide between fast food, strip clubs, bars, or even... drugs!

The system has been designed streamline this process and make it as un-grindy as possible. Time will fast forward briefly while your bandmates tension decreases.

Polish at every corner
Various parts of the game have an extra layer of polish to ensure the game looks gorgeous long into the future. In this example you'll hopefully notice that the map transition is a lot less robotic.

Travelling System Improvement
While I (Seabass) was playing the game I noticed that if you travel a short distance, you actually lose tension and travelling long distances with the higher tier vehicles had very little effect on the band. Upon notices these things I decided it was time to rewrite the math behind travelling. I think players should notice a pretty significant difference in consistency of results.

Another issue with travelling that this update addresses is its ability to skip gigs with no punishments. Prior to this update you could travel long distances and miss shows without any negative effects. Now you will see the proper outcomes occur even while travelling.

We both want to thank everybody in the community for taking the time to give Rock God Tycoon a chance and by doing so... showing some faith in our team. We don't have a lot of outreach beyond Steam so we rely on good ole' word of mouth and social media. Seeing people post videos, reviews, and everything else feels unreal, and we can't thank you enough.

The next big update is coming! Version 1.2

Hey everyone!
It has been nearly two weeks since our last update which is a long time if you have ever taken notice of our regular update schedule. Panos and I have been working hard on the next update and really wanted it to be special. Quality of life improvements are nice but updates can be so much more. The next update will bring the game to version 1.2!

What will be in version 1.2?
We have overhauled the UI and this time around have included the new calendar system in the process. You can click on the calendar and view your schedule without opening any additional menus.

From within the calendar you can get more information on planned events.

Panos has recreated all of the previous event icons which now look beautiful.

New events!
Another major change we will be introducing are a series of new events. We've completely redesigned the gameplay loop to get rid of as much of the grind as possible. There is so much to talk about that I don't even have the time to write it all out right now. So here is the new and improved map legend! (No more random question mark on it)

Performance Improvements
If everything else we did wasn't exciting enough, there are numerous performance improvements as well. A lot of backend cleanup has been done which should help improve the quality of future updates. The few bugs we've ran into we have addressed and solved.

New character actions and so much more!
I seriously wish we had more time to write about all the changes coming in the next update but we are quite busy as it is. The main point we are trying to get across with this post is that we still are here and care about the community! We'll continue improving the game and as we move forward we hope to address any and all concerns the community has shared with us.

“Rock God Tycoon represents everything that is good about Greenlight and Early Access... This is the single best thing I have purchased on this platform.”

About This Game

Rock God Tycoon (RGT) places you at the helm of your very own band and on the path to your own rock destiny. Choose your character’s discipline from guitar, bass, drums, or vocals, then hire the rest of your band before hitting the road to stardom. Manage your group and decide when deadwood needs to be cut. Fed up with the drummer missing shows? Fire the slacker and replace him!

Model your fully customizable characters with 300+ available items, all exceptionally detailed, beautifully designed, and with frequent new additions. Everybody needs to pay their bills though, and you’ll need to book the right shows and practice your songs to keep the money coming in; going from small town bars, to concerts halls and stadiums. Your band isn’t performing and is struggling to hold a note? Better put down that coffee to pick up that gauntlet and step on stage yourself to show them how it’s done. Gigging across 76 cities, each with unique venues, you'll constantly be on the road; whether it be in a van, tour bus, or a private jet.

As your skill and renown grows, so will your fan base. Head to the shop and use some of your cash to upgrade your instruments, equipment, and buy promotions in a fully realized catalogue of features. Make sure to manage the tension and egos in your band carefully, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to pay the rent. Well placed info tabs show you every actionable detail of your band, and allow you to manage all of your band's day to day goals. RGT allows you to write your own songs, develop and release your own albums, and sign record deals with a variety of labels.

This is the music tycoon game you have been waiting for and deserve.
