What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Parkitect is a big, complicated game. It's full of many systems working together to create a seamless, fun simulation. As we're a small team, the data that Early Access provides us is invaluable in helping us create the best game we can.

It also helps us prioritize what to work on based on community feedback and recurring bugs. By simply playing our game, you are contributing to the improvement of it!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Parkitect will likely be in Early Access for a year or more. We have planned for a year, but things can change and games are quite fluid throughout development. We'll do our best to keep this short, but in the long run we do what's best for the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final version of Parkitect will be a bit different than this Early Access version. We have plans to expand and add a number of features, though as with most game projects, these may change or be removed:

  • A single-player campaign with a number of parks to manage
  • A functional resource system for shops
  • Staff management beyond hiring, firing and wages
  • Additional rides of all sorts
  • Full workshop support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fairly stable and contains enough content for many hours of play time. It's currently sandbox-gameplay only, but many of the biggest features are implemented or at least partially implemented. Some bigger features and more content are still missing and coming soon.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We think the current price is fair for the current state of the game. The price will go up slightly after Early Access when more features and content have been completed.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We've always been very public with the development of Parkitect, and we're excited to bring that to Steam. The Community will help us prioritize what we work on and where our attention is most needed. That might be new rides, or balance changes, or adding new management controls.

When adding the Calm River Ride last week we weren’t sure yet whether we’d be able to get the boats move around inside the channel as you’d expect or not. Since the channel is only a small bit wider than the boats it would have been alright if they just stayed inside in the center of the “track” at all times like any other ride, _but _we got the movement working now and it looks quite nice!Here’s a top-down view:



The path builder oftentimes decided to build tunnels when dragging across uneven terrain, which has been improved now:



You can still get tunnels by holding Shift while dragging.

There’s a new brush tool for changing the style of existing paths:



Garret added some new bamboo path objects:



Luuk added a bunch of small random events that should shake things up a bit every now and then.



There are positive and negative events. Some are entirely random, some can be prevented and some can be resolved by taking action.

And Luuk also added some nice animations for trash:

Gordon bought a morin khuur a few months ago and has been practising it since, and now he’s finished his first song with it. Give it a listen over here.
It’s a bit unusual, but we’ll find a good use for it :)

Tim keeps working on scenario features and has added a time constraint for goal completion:



With this setting, all goals need to be kept complete for the given amount of time before the scenario is won. If any of the goal conditions isn’t met anymore the timer resets.


And we’ve added another water ride, the Calm River Ride. It’s a low-intensity ride where boats float along a water channel and you can see on the right hand side here:
