Regardless of the heated gaming community’s response to RollerCoaster Tycoon World on PC — a game using an unusually negative Steam inspection score of 5/10 — Atari is trying to crowdfund an identical job for Nintendo Switch. Produced by Nvizzio Creations and published by Atari, the game also has experienced sweeping post-launch issues, a fact that is burdening their existing campaign to raise $1,070,000 for the Nintendo Switch launch of RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch. And in the aftermath of some of those concerns, Atari has answered some questions that were lingering.
First (and normally more important to gamers at large) is what happens in case Atari doesn’t even manage to satisfy their $1.07M funding objective? StartEngine is investment concentrated. In actuality, the investment record notes that $1,070,000 is actually their highest possible offering — they demanded $10,000 to maneuver on the financing goals.
The game will launch regardless if the inventory of offering:
For the additional avoidance of doubt, if we do not increase 100 percent of the funds, our majority stockholder plans to present additional funding or charge in trade for the balance of the Net Receipts not spread to the Investors.
In the past five days since launch, the campaign has now raised $31,105 so it is well within the $10,000 minimum.
In addition to this, there were also the clear concerns that developer Nvizzio would be only porting over RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch or even RollerCoaster Tycoon World (despite the blundered launch). But, Atari targeted those criticisms noting that the Nintendo Switch iteration is a “fresh game” and not a interface — nor a free-to-okay game. S woes and how this will influence the Nintendo Switch variation:
Atari and Nvizzio Creations learned considerably in RollerCoaster Tycoon World; and the game, that was produced by another team within the studio, remains undergoing continued improvement. Upgrades to RollerCoaster Tycoon World are published and another update is coming shortly.
Basically, investors ought to be expecting that lessons have been learned and that the PC model went to the B-team of all Nvizzio Creations.
It shouldn’t be any surprise the Atari is looking to deliver RollerCoaster Tycoon to Nintendo Switch, awarded the continuing interest in the development community because of late for Nintendo’s handheld platform. However, RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch may see some heavy competition — such as Jurassic World Evolution which appears like it is an development of the essential notion that the series aims.
RollerCoaster Tycoon Switch is intended to release only on Nintendo Switch in 2018.
