What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Feature ideas from the community are flooding in. This is encouraging and even difficult to follow. I am the only developer of City Game Studio and implementing all these features takes me a lot of time. As the project progresses, feedback is becoming increasingly valuable. Being able to release the game in early access will allow me to get feedback earlier and will also allow me to devote 100% of my time to the development of City Game Studio.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“City Game Studio will remain in early access until the end of 2019. Which will allow me to make the best possible game of it.

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

“I have set up a github project listing the features, obviously it is going to change over time.

  • a digital store with sophisticated management.
  • make sales on the games
  • an itneractive city
  • crunchtime management
  • Steam workshop

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently has a good duration and many features. However, there is a lack of content, content that will be added during early access.

All the features listed in the "About This" section are already implemented”

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

The price will increase as the game progresses from alpha to final release. The game is cheaper the earlier you buy it as a thank you for supporting the development of City Game Studio in its early stages.”

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

“I have high expectations of the community. An active discord server is in place, don't hesitate to join it. We share our opinions on City Game Studio as well as feature ideas, bug feedbacks and game balancing.
I'm a GNU/Linux developer so I can't stream directly on Steam. I'm building a community around Twitch live stream. Please come and introduce yourself, I'm always happy to see new faces.”

About This Game



January 1975, you have created your video game company. You are renting a tight place that allows you to develop your first game. Quickly, your games are successful and you already have to move, but it is up to you to cross the city to pick up your next location. In the blink of an eye you are hiring artists to improve the visual aspect of your games. Next came developers and then testers.



But a problem remains, even if your games are brilliants, you don't have enough fans to self-publish a big game to make your studio profitable. You will have to turn to video game editors who will carve out the lion's share. Chaining successes is the only way of getting rid of the publishers. Furthermore you will be able to publish your own publishing contracts. Then you will then be ready to dominate the market and buy back your competitors.

Each game is unique


Maps and studios are procedurally generated. Combined with random events and customizable studios, you will rediscover the game with each new game.

Assign the best studio


Browse the cities and choose the location of your next studio. As my uncle used to say "Honey catches more talents than vinegar !"

Furnish your studios carefully


Everyone is not a studio designer, yet every piece of furniture has its place in your studio, and can have an influence on the history of your company.

Publish, hire, repeat


Each game is unique, but over time new generations of consoles come out. You cannot create a bestseller alone. You have to hire new talents that will help you creating the perfect game

Game development


The development of the game is broadcast on twitch using the channel binogure.
