Banking tycoon is a business simulation game inspired by games such as Theme Hospital or Prison Architect. In Banking Tycoon you need to build a working bank from a safe and $50,000. In the Pre-Alpha version of the game you manage a single bank.
In Banking Tycoon the role of money is very different from most other business simulations as you have no direct control of how much money you borrow and lend, and hence the size of your balance. Customers will borrow and deposit what they want, depending on the interest rates you set for your financial products. The aim of the game is to have a large balance and a positive daily income.
Global interest rates will fluctuate depending on what rates the Central Bank sets. In turn your competitors will set their rates based on the Central Bank rate, which will affect the rates you must set to attract customers to your bank.
The game is currently in very early stages of development and a great number of features are missing. For example there is only basic sound and all 3D models and 2D textures are placeholders at present. We have released the game as an open pre-alpha because we feel that the greatest asset we have is the opinions and feedback from our customers; we do not want to waste time developing and implementing features that no one (besides the developers) wishes to see.
The current build is Pre-Alpha 5 and we intend to release new versions of the pre-alpha at least every month. Please follow us here for updates.
Our 5th Pre-Alpha build is now available for download! The Banking Tycoon Pre-Alpha launcher will automatically handle all updates of the game, and is available here. To play Banking Tycoon for free you will need to register here.
