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 the end of 2019.”

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.”

Market Tycoon V. 1.4.3 P.1 (Bug Fixes and Korean Language)

The first patch of version 1.4.3 of Market Tycoon.

With this patch update, we fixed a few bugs thanks for everyone who reported any bugs found over the past few weeks.

A new language is added with this update, Korean.

We also changed the difficulty slider from Easy, Normal and Hard system to a starting with the amount of cash slider since we figured that this would work better and more suited for the sandbox game mode.

That's pretty much it for this patch stay tuned for more exciting features with the upcoming main updates.

•Quick patch that fixed a bug that caused the game to sometimes crash when changing employee uniform.

Market Tycoon V. 1.4.3 (Huge Optimization Update and Future Plans)

Hello there,

As we promised in giving you an update that will focus on optimizing the game, here it is.

We have received a number of complaints about lag and performance issues, and we are happy to let you know that with this update this issue is from the past. We were able to boost the performance from 15fps in some cases to 60fps.

And as you know with the last update, your old markets disappeared from the loading screen and as we explained that this was due to changes in core game code. We are happy to let you know that we were able to work around that and make most of your old markets loadable again. And with the new optimization, you can now enjoy your market with no lag.

As for the future, we would really love to bring workshop support for Market Tycoon and we are so excited to see what the community can bring to Market Tycoon. We also have plans for more features like janitors, security guards, thieves, disasters like rat infestation, online website for your market. Things like that will make the game more interesting and fun.

Thanks for your support and for everyone that sent in a bug report and helping us make Market Tycoon a better game.
