Atari Game Partners has announced that RollerCoaster Tycoon is in development for Nintendo Switch, presenting the chance for players around the world to build their dream park. However, they are looking for help to make it happen.
The company has entered into an agreement with equity crowdfunding platform StartEngine that presents investors with the chance to participate in the financing and future of the game, and, in a newly launched StartEngine campaign, is looking to raise $1.07 million in the next three months.
The campaign will fund the game’s development which “will contain exclusive features and allow even more gamers to experience the fun and creative freedom of building the ultimate theme park,” with Nvizzio Creations, the studio behind the free-to-play RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch, returning as the developer.
That will include a Tycoon Career mode where you will be challenged to expand your park and grow your Amusement Empire, a Sandbox mode with various landscapes in which you can create the park of your dreams with unlimited time and resources, and scenarios where you must complete objectives within specific time limits and other constraints.
“At Atari Game Partners, we’re confident in the incredible potential for the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise on the Nintendo Switch,” enthused Atari Game Partners president and COO Todd Shallbetter.
“Community investment will secure the development process to create an exciting new version of this iconic franchise for gamers around the world to enjoy. The much-loved addictive gameplay embodied by the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise is a perfect match for the Nintendo Switch.”
Only those in the United States can choose to invest and will have the opportunity to participate in a revenue share, as well as being kept in the loop about how the game’s development is progressing and the chance to become involved in future projects led by Atari Game Partners.
RollerCoaster Tycoon for Nintendo Switch is expected to release worldwide in 2018.
