What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Mall Craze is being developed by a single person - me. Hi! Because of that, I chose to release the game in Early Access. So far, the feedback from the community has proven to be extremely helpful, and it will allow me to improve upon the game even further with each update.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The goal is to leave Early Access and release the Full version of the game in 16 - 24 months from the Early Access release.”

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

“The full version of Mall Craze is planned to be more feature complete, polished, and optimized.
Some of those features will be:
  • More Management features
  • New shop types, products, and stalls
  • Complex facilities such as Movie Theater or Fitness Center
  • Campaign mode (name may change to Scenario / Challenge mode)
  • New environments to build your mall in
  • Translations to more languages

The full version of Mall Craze will also contain these 3 game modes:
  • Sandbox Mode*
  • Business Mode
  • Campaign Mode

*currently present in the game

Sandbox mode (Builder mode)
This mode enables you to fully realise your creative potential. No locked shops, objects and designs behind research.

Business Mode (name may change in the future)
Business mode offers a well known tycoon experience. You start from the beginning and progress your way up. During gameplay, you unlock new shop types, products, decorations, and much more.

Campaign Mode
Custom scenarios and challenges.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Mall Craze is in a state of sandbox mall builder and management game, meaning that you can Build and Customize, and Manage your mall without research restrictions. Throughout Early Access, more features from each of these category will be added.

Besides sandbox game mode, Mall Craze also currently offers:
  • Shop types of various kind - clothing, electronics, sports, music, and gaming hardware
  • On average 15 - 20 unique product display tables for every shop type
  • Customization features for your products, shops, and mall
  • Pre-build malls

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

“The price may moderately increase throughout Early Access and during Full Release.”

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

“Mall Craze's community is already flourishing on our Discord server, where you can find important announcements, videos and screenshots from behind the scenes, conversations in regards to the development, but also a laid back and friendly chat about the game and tycoon genre as a whole.

Besides this, I will also release Development Updates and Patch Notes here on Steam, some of which may also include a direct request for feedback from the community.”
