Leicester, UK, 18th January – The old-school tycoon game is back but with a modern twist as Kasedo Games today announced that Rise of Industry, by Dapper Penguin Studios, is hitting Early Access on 9th February 2018.
The announcement follows a hugely successful spell in early Alpha, in which Rise of Industry became the top selling game of 2017 on Itch.io gathering an already devoted community and was subsequently voted into the top four realistic simulation games of 2017 on IndieDB.com.
“We’re so excited to finally be bringing Rise of Industry to Early Access after an amazing and very busy couple of years developing the game, pouring all of our talent, love and care” said Alex Mochi, CEO, Designer & Producer at Dapper Penguin Studios. “We want to hit the ground running in Early Access, and already having over 15000 people who have played the game means that we have been able to use their feedback to deliver the best game possible as we continue with development, making sure it ends up a genre classic”.
Although there is already a lot in the game, such as sandbox and career mode, an updated development roadmap shows the sheer amount of additional content which will be coming during Early Access and beyond release. Modding, multiplayer, massive maps, full localisation in several languages and much more is all to come this year.
“There are many hours of challenging and extremely stable gameplay already in Rise of Industry and as the roadmap shows, we’ve got so much more to come with regular and sizeable updates coming throughout Early Access” continues Alex. “We’re always open to our community to answer any questions or address any feedback they may have and our Discord and social media channels continue to grow every day”.
