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. 1.4.0 Released

Hey Market Tycoon Players,

It's finally here. Market Tycoon V. 1.4.0
We did take a little longer than we wanted but we decided to take our time and deliver a better product. We hope you'll understand.

So, what's new in this version?

Well, technically it's not much but the new update dramatically changed the feel of the game.

In this version of Market Tycoon, we've completely redesigned the user interface (UI) of the game.

Along with the new UI, few small features have been added like managing bank loans and event discounts.

We also added Polish to our supported languages.

Let us know what you think about the new UI on our Discord server. If you are not a part of our Discord server you can join using this link:

We also added the ability for you to send us your market and it might be used in the main menu, loading background or screenshots on Steam. To do so simply click on the send marketing package button on the pause menu while in game.

Thank you for your continued support for Market Tycoon. Have fun!

Quick Dev Update & Discord

Hey Everyone,

It's been a while since we posted a dev update but that's mainly due to what the next update will bring.

As some of you know, the next update will focus on UI. We have completely redone the UI of the game and it doesn't just look better, but it also works better. With extra features like loan managing and clearer item price management, the new UI changes the feel of the game for the better.

The work on the UI is 99% done there are just a few small parts remaining. We will be running a closed beta very soon with the new UI, so if you want to be a part of the closed beta please send us an email to you will then receive access instructions if selected to be part of this beta.

While the beta is running we will be fixing more bugs that have been sent to us over the past 2 months as well as any bugs and suggestion for the new UI.

Also, we want to announce the opening of Protection Games discord server. Since the release of Market Tycoon, we have received a ton of feedback from you. And in an effort to give you what you want we have opened a discord server where everyone will have the opportunity to share their suggestions and then will try our best to deliver the most wanted features first. You can also just share your market and have fun with the community. You can join our discord using this link:

And before we go here are some pictures of the new UI:
