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. 1.4.2 (Bug Fixes and Road-map)

Hey Market Tycoon Fans,

As many of you might have heard, we are working on bringing workshop support to Market Tycoon. Unfortunately, when we started developing Market Tycoon we did not plan to have workshop ready to be supported in the future. Therefore, we need to change many core game code to make it compatible with Workshop and that is taking some time. We are happy to let you know that work on that has already started and there is some real good progress going on that. We are so excited to see what you guys can come up with. Stay tuned Workshop is officially on the way to Market Tycoon.

Meanwhile, we worked on fixing bugs that were reported over the last two months or so and this is what this update is all about. We focused mainly on those bugs that caused people or employees to get stuck in their place. Please note that if you faced this bug in your market there is a small chance that it will not get fixed in this market and you might need to start a new game, but it should not happen again.

We also know that many are facing some performance problems, and that is what we are focusing on next. So expect an update very very soon to address the performance problems. After the next update which will focus on performance, we will get back to work on getting Workshop ready to use with Market Tycoon.

We had plans to get the UI more friendly with the visually impaired on this update. Unfortunately, it didn't look as good as we wanted it to be. We are still working on that and we'll release a small update once it's ready.

Updating the translations of German, French, Catalan and few more languages are being worked on and will become available automatically without needing to update the game once it's ready.

Thanks for everyone that continues to support Market Tycoon. We still have many other exciting features planned like website for your market, thieves and guards, disasters, opening times and better employee management and much much more.

If you want your market to be featured in the main menu screen in the game or the loading screen, use the "Send Marketing Package" button from the pause menu while in game.

Market Tycoon V. 1.4.1 Spanish and Turkish Added!

Hello Market Tycoon players,

Thank you for your patience for this update, and thanks to everyone who reported the bugs to us.

With this version of Market Tycoon, two new languages have been added Spanish and Turkish these are two of the most requested languages. And thanks to Felix from Coalise Estudio for translation the game into Spanish and Tayfun for translating into Turkish.

This update includes a fix to a bug that was introduced with the last update that caused items on fridges to expire in one day. we also fixed many other bugs that were reported over the last month.

Also, we have slightly improved the rating system and the overall balance of the game. We still want to work more on that for a better experience.

That's mostly it with this update. And we are happy to announce that custom items and steam workshop feature are in the works. We are very excited to see what the community can come up with.

If you want your market to be featured in the main menu screen in the game or the loading screen, use the "Send Marketing Package" button from the pause menu while in game.
