Adventure Park lets you be a rollercoaster tycoon in your own theme park23 Jul 2013
I feel like I should apologise for the sarcasm in the headline because there aren’t that many Rollercoaster Tycoon/Theme Park alikes out there compared to, say, modern-day shooters, but… well…
Either way, it seems like Adventure Park – a forthcoming rollercoaster-’em-up from German dev b-alive – is wearing its inspirations on its sleeve. You take control of a theme park, either in campaign mode or on a free map, and then manage the hell out of it. You know what to expect: place rides, put down concession stands, hire workers, decorate everything, and build rollercoasters (although here, you can do that with a grid-free design system, which sounds intriguing).
Truthfully, Adventure Park looks rather neat, and I wouldn’t object to a modern update of the old park-building classics. We’ll try to find the time to have a look at some preview code of it soon.
