One of the latest simulators to hit Steam that will be for PC comes in by Hovgaard Games and goes by the name of Startup Company. The game explores building a software company in a sandbox setting and sees you the player as the CEO of a fledgling business. Startup Company is set to launch sometime Q3 of 2017.
Most simulators are quite popular and keep a nice amount of players around for years, but usually stay on the low in terms of hearing news or updates about them, sorta like Startup Company. The indie game by Hovgaard Games is gearing up to release this year, in fact next quarter, which stands to be Q3 — starting July and ending September.
“Startup Company is a business simulation sandbox game. You play as the CEO of a newly formed software company. Your job is to either complete client contracts to make money, or build your very own products.”
The game’s slogan reads that a “great company is built by great people.” This can only be achieved by looking out for employees with great skills, significant working traits and other noteworthy merits.
The game explores whether or not players will snatch up any deal that pops up or if they will carefully review requests and other deals thoroughly, because not every deal is legit or beneficial in Startup Company… (or for that matter IRL).
Furthermore, no matter if players want to deliver contracts or build their own product you need components and modules, which are featured in a crafting/development system where players will be able to merge components into modules, servers or product features.
