Create computers your way In Computer Tycoon,- the decisions you make during development really matter. Take advantages of the various upgrade possibilities.

Market your computers: Having the best product isn't enough. You must take care of people needs or even change their needs with marketing campaigns. Balance well your budget between development, production, marketing, and expansion.

Planned Features Include

  • Start a computer manufacturer company in the 70s
  • Design and create hardware and computer
  • Rule the market of the world on a grand strategy level
  • Research and study the technology of the earliest models to the near future computers
  • Expand your industrial sites across the globe
  • Conduct industry changing products
  • Unlock achievements
  • Translations for German, Spanish, French, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Hungarian and some more in the future


Personal notes
Personally, we are a big fan of business simulators and grand strategy games, so you can expect this mixture. You won't have much micro babysitting, but a nice small game about managing the most important aspects of such a company in a fun way. This is a small indie title, don't expect a huge budget, but a fresh game.

Also, we hope that the game will give some insights for young people about what they never will experience in their life: those beautiful oldie computers, that we loved so much when we were the youngsters.

We'd like to build a player base early on. Please join our mailing list on the game's homepage. We will need beta testers in the coming months.
The planned release time is 2017 Q4.

As a tribute to his memory and accomplishments, I am proud to unveil an exclusive game trailer for the upcoming Computer Tycoon, a strategy game inspired by Jobs about the computer evolution.

Remember, that the game officially launches on STEAM™ via Early Access, October 12th 2017! Feel free to wishlist the game on STEAM here:

I'm enjoying a lot the approach to the simulation part Computer Tycoon appears to be taking. As a computer engineering student, this game could actually be (even if only in an abstract manner) a learning device.

Just a note: I subscribed to the mailing list when I first discovered your game and today received an email about your new article. I rushed to read it in your website, but it's not responding. Tried again later and nothing, so I ended up coming to IndieDB to read it. The images are broken here (perhaps they are being referenced from your site). Maybe you are receiving more visitors than expected, which is awesome :D But maybe it's a technical problem and you'd like to take a look at it.

I'm still getting an ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT error. I'm using google chrome and I'm in Brazil, if that matters at all.
But I don't mind following the game through here, I just got worried that other interested people might not be able to reach your content (:

It's my pleasure to share your articles, but I'm by no means an influencer haha

And to clarify, I'm the guest above, just created an account right after commenting.

Hey Henky70,

Thanks for your response. That Amiga was a lovely one! Unfortunately, I didn't have the chance to try one so far. Did you play StreeRod as well? I think that time it was released already.

My 286DX had a 12Mhz CPU haha! How about your Amiga?

Oh think the A500 had like a 7.1Mhz CPU and 512kB of RAM, and mindblowing 4096 colours. :D
