RPG Tycoon at EGX 2015
RPG Tycoon is a simulation game that puts you in control of a newly established fantasy Kingdom.
The previous leader left its followers in despair and now it’s up to you to grow the Capital from nothing and reclaim the title of the most honored Kingdom in the land! In RPG Tycoon you hire Heroes to work for you, send them on quests across the land and use them to help spread the word of your cause. Use the loot that your heroes find to build new stores and facilities in order to attract nearby villagers into your kingdom who will spend their hard-earned gold coins and continue to promote the growth of your empire!
Skatanic Studios is a one man game development studio based in Wisbech, United Kingdom and headed by Media Production graduate Matt Gambell. It was in early 2014, between the final touches that needed making to his movie and the other thousand words he had to write for his final year dissertation, that the idea for RPG Tycoon began to grow. After creating a tech demo Matt wanted to gauge if it was worth pursuing and in April of 2014, he pitched it on Steam Greenlight… 9 days later it was accepted. Realising he now had a platform for release, Skatanic Studios was born.
The game has been in development for just over a year now and was first showcased at Rezzed earlier in 2015. It has come a long way since it’s debut on green light with multiple updates bringing new features and mechanics to players based on their feedback and suggestions.
RPG Tycoon should be fully released by Q1 2016 and will be shown at EGX 2015.
