What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is a great way to connect with players to help them shape the future of Rec Center Tycoon through feedback & suggestions.

Early access ensures that I can focus purely on development giving faster updates and a higher quality product overall.

Nothing is concrete with the direction of the game. Each new version will take into consideration the thoughts and ideas of the community to help build the best tycoon experience possible!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While it's difficult to give any specific dates in this current stage of development, the best answer I can give is that the Early-Access period will last until I'm happy the game is in a stable, bug-free state, with plenty of content & replay-ability.”

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

“Throughout the early-access period Rec Center Tycoon will receive regular updates adding new content & fixing bugs wherever possible. Upon full-release the game will feature a rich amount of content giving lasting replay-ability.

During the early-access period player feedback will be given strong consideration and will be heavily incorporated in development & the overall direction of the game.

Just a few changes the full release will include:
-Sandbox & Career mode with multiple difficulties
-An large overhaul of many sprites
-A GUI overhaul
-Deeper micromanagement”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently in a fully playable state, although understandably there may still be some bugs & fine-tuning necessary to iron out.

My goal is to always keep save games playable between each updated version, although being the nature of early-access, this may not always be possible between very large patches.

One thing to note: there is as of now, no tutorial system so it helps to be familiar with this genre of games.

I have however taken many steps to ensure everything is very intuitive so a tutorial isn't really necessary. Those familiar with similar games should have no issues diving right in & figuring things out.”

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

“While nothing is set in stone at this point, the current plan is to leave the price unchanged after full release but this depends largely on community feedback & the number of new features added over the course of the early-access period.”

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

“The early-access model will be an opportunity to take first-hand player feedback into consideration in determining the future development of the game. I've already been incorporating a great deal of feedback from beta testers and am looking forward to feedback from a far greater player-base.

An official bug/suggestions email is listed on the title screen of the game so players can easily submit their ideas & thoughts.

All players are also invited to join the official subreddit:https://www.reddit.com/r/RecCenterTycoon/ along with the official Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RecCenterTycoon/ to give feedback and suggestions. I look forward to hearing from you!”

About This Game

What is Rec Center Tycoon?


Rec Center Tycoon draws inspiration from the simulation-management classics like Theme Hospital as well as modern classics like Prison Architect to give you a deep, challenging business management game where you build and run a recreation center from the ground up.
Micromanage employees, finances, fitness classes, customer needs and much more!

Key features

  • Sandbox gamemode with Career mode coming soon.
  • Micromanage employees to get the best performance out of them while keeping them happy.
  • Challenging gameplay; unlike many other management games, failure is a possibility in Rec Center Tycoon, you must keep your customers happy or they may leave negative reviews which can hurt future business leading poor profits.
  • Large selection of buy-able exercise equipment to keep customers satisfied.
  • Many different types of employees, from your simple receptionist to a boxing trainer.
  • Every employee has different motivations, skill levels & traits. Some employees may prefer short 5 hour shifts, others are happy to work 12 hour shifts. An unfit, yet charismatic employee won't make a good lifeguard, but they might make a great receptionist.
    It's up to you to choose the right employee for the job!
  • Hire trainers & create your own fitness classes.
  • Host customer parties in your Event Rooms for an added source of income.
  • Running low on money? Take out a loan from the bank! Beware of the interest rates though.
  • Complex financial system. Do you charge a flat rate for entry? Or make entry free but dramatically increase the cost of amenities like café food and arcade machines? Do you lock facilities like swimming behind a membership? What will your daily membership costs be?

What's planned

  • Career game-mode
  • Host your own swimming/basketball/boxing tournaments
  • Hire & train athletes to compete in these tournaments
  • Host School events to earn $$$
  • Additional professions like Nurse, Security Guard etc..
  • Larger selection of equipment
  • Complex weather system


On early-access release Rec Center Tycoon will only be available for the Windows platform with possibilites for Mac & Linux support added after.
