Future Friends Games and independent studio Dreihaus, run by solo developer Johannes Gäbler, have set an early May release date for the music festival sim, Festival Tycoon. Available now in early access on Steam, the v1.0 release will be on Steam and on the Epic Games Store.
Build a music festival empire. Every detail of the event needs to be managed and handled. Booking bands, setting up stages, organizing line-ups, designing the layout, rolling out food trucks, building-up the festivals reputation, and making sure there are plenty of accessible toilets are a handful of the tasks players need to juggle in order to pull off a successful and profitable festival.
Before one can have a massive empire they must start somewhere more humble. In this case a tiny field. Players will want to focus on building their cash flow and their reputation with attendees, bands, and sponsors to take their event from the small stage to the big stage.
A sandbox mode is available for those who don’t want to put in the work and effort. With this mode players can craft their very own dream festival. Live mode allows players to react to festival events. Keep the crowds happy and the festival empire will grow.
Festival Tycoon has a May 4, 2022, release date with the game launching on both Steam and the Epic Games Store for Windows PC. The game is currently available in early access for Windows PC through Steam for $9.99. A Festival Tycoon Supporter Pack DLC is also available for $4.99 that includes a special in-game item.
