What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Market Tycoon is a very large project for a small team like Protection Games, with Early Access we could share the game with the community before we could have all features implemented. As well as getting feedback and ideas from the community and try our best to satisfy you with all features Market Tycoon can have.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Early Access was never our goal for Market Tycoon, therefore, we would try our best to have all features implemented like Story Mode and more content (Markets, items, placeable object, etc...). We hope to get Market Tycoon out of Early Access by 2018.”

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

“Full version will have features like Story Mode and more content, as well as features and ideas proposed by you the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, you could choose from 2 markets sizes and customize it as you wish. There are 154 different items, and various Racks, Cashiers, Fridges, and Freezers and some objects have multiple colors. You could also run Advertisement campaign for your market and discounts on items.”

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

“There are no plans to change the price, but we can't guarantee that the price would not rise after we get out of Early Access.”

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

“The community are encouraged to share their ideas and what they would like to see in the game. A roadmap on our website will show the status of the development of different features and an estimate of when it would be published.”

New map.

This map has a size of 14X14 which puts it in the middle of the current two sizes of 10X10 and 24X24. It's a perfect size that it is not too big and complicated and not small and limited.

Note: There are plans to completely redesign and replace all three maps to include the foundation for future features like storage space, market expansion, etc. New maps and storage feature expected with the next version 1.2.6 or 1.3.0.

Mass select painting.
A highly asked for feature is mass selecting floor tiles for painting, and so here it is.

This is the first on what you can call a disaster. Fridges and freezers now have the probability to break down and spark. And to fix it, a repairman will come and do the duty. More disaster and unexpected problems to be added soon.

In this version, the AI script was completely rewritten. Fixing bugs and optimizing performance.

Thank you for your patience for this update, we promise the next update will be epic.
