  • Computer Tycoon

Computer Tycoon is an indie business strategy game that focuses on Computer Evolution and everything that comes with it. The game was developed and published by Progorion on October 12th, 2017.

Create your own company in the 70s and turn it into a successful business. Will you be the one that leads the research race until the end (the year 2034) while creating the most sophisticated hardware and operating systems? This isn't your typical tycoon game as it has a grand strategy aspect that lets players control their computer empire via a world map. You start things small and then grow as time goes on. Learn everything you can about hardware and software inventions and lead your company into the modern world by constantly improving. Players can even uncover video game gems and then promote them on their platforms in order to attract loyal customers!

Computer Tycoon is a game in which you have to make difficult decisions. Make the most out of your technology, upgrade it whenever possible, and create unique combinations. Sometimes you need to increase computing capacity, other times you have to invent new features, or even lower your prices. Depending on how well you run your business, you will either become a computer giant or a failure. After you expand, there's the option of branching out into other countries, building more offices and factories, and doing whatever you can to keep your empire growing.

Always keep in mind that you can't be at the top just because you have the best product. Keep track of what the people want, what they need, and even change that by using marketing tools. Also make sure that you're healthy, as you never know when an illness can come out of nowhere and kill you.

Hello Tycoons, This version is a small update to solve two serious game-breaking bugs connected to exotic character sets. If you are from a country where you have your special alphabet (Turkey, Georgia, India, China, etc.) then it might have happened that you couldn't start/load games and that your research tree bugs with tech names. I was finally able to track it down. Also, I have built a few graphics safety code pieces into the game as well. I know that you are eagerly waiting for the next bi...

Hi Tycoons, I was able to hunt down another important bug, and I've also fixed a few other minor things. Here is the changelog: There was a bug connected to tech category changes. (for example, I've changed a few techs having the “bus” category to “video bus” - these are used in the code to decide if something is new or obsolete) – which unfortunately caused various bugs in saved games where the tech still used to have the earlier category. When it happened, the upper right part of the info bar ...

Hi Tycoons, A game-breaking bug was reported and fixed, that's why I'm uploading this version. In the meantime, I'm still working on a bigger update. If you've installed a site in a market that becomes communist later, then the market list didn't work anymore (after the country becomes communist). Obviously, it was an issue only on the historical map and you had to be unlucky, but still, it was serious. Also, the bug behind this might have caused problems elsewhere too, but no reports suggested ...

Hi Tycoons, Here is a new smaller update for Computer Tycoon. Changelog: - From now on, the market screen preselects home computers… - From now on when you discover a new computer design, you will see a small window with an illustration, instead of just a message at the top. It looks better. - On the Hardware Designer screens the tech list has a new label: “Obs.” Meaning obsolete. The techs which have a newer version such as 286 → 286 will show this label (386 shows “new'). This way when you clo...

Hello Tycoons, Here is a new version of Computer Tycoon. I'm trying to pump out all these smaller tweaks/fixes/additions before jumping a big with the new bigger features. I hope you will like them! The colored special tech nodes on the tree were hard to read because black letters blended into the background – from now on they are white. When you were typing into an input field while you were on the research three, the tree was moving when you pressed WASD – Fixed The Pricing Matrix didn't updat...
