Once named Project Automata on Steam Greenlight and now listed as Rise of Industry, the strategic tycoon game by Kasedo Games and Dapper Penguin Studios is set to release for PC during Q1 of 2018 on Steam Early Access.
Originally posted on Steam Greenlight way back on September 26th, 2016, the strategic tycoon city builder known as Rise of Industry has since passed the Greenlight phase, despite the platform being down, and has garnered enough community votes that it is now set to be featured on Steam Early Access come Q1 2018.
Looking over to the basic concept and mechanics behind Rise of Industry, the game is a strategy simulator at heart and puts you in the role of an early 20th-century industrialist. You the player will be tasked with building and managing your very own empire in a procedurally generated world. This world is living, breathing and constantly evolving, forcing you to adapt with time and adjust your playstyle to stay relevant.
As your fledgling empire grows, the game will task you to build factories, construct efficient transport lines, move raw materials, produce goods, and arrange trade with the world’s developing cities, for as they grow and flourish, so do you.
The official description explaining Rise of Industry sits below for you to read over.
“Rise of Industry is a strategic tycoon game that puts you in the shoes of an early 20th-century industrialist. Build and manage your growing empire in a living, breathing, and procedurally generated world that is constantly evolving and adapting to your playstyle.”
Following the description comes the much older two minute and 34 second long trailer by the devs behind Rise of Industry, showing what the game has to offer gamers.
Last but not least, the devs note that the game is designed with an eye toward both accessibility and depth in that there is enough strategic complexity and re-playability to satisfy the most experienced fans of the ongoing genre and newcomers too.
