Get your Theme Park hat back on!
There are three upcoming Rollercoaster/Theme Park games in development, sparking a bit of a renaissance into the genre after a good number of years. Some details below outlining each. I thought 1 thread covering all three would be a better bet for traction rather than a thread just for a single one of them. All three are in Early Access/Alpha states. Rollercoaster Tycoon World and Parkitect are available via Steam, while Planet Coaster is only available directly from the Developer for now.
Planet Coaster is a Theme Park/Roller Coaster Construction and Management Simulation game, currently in development by Elite: Dangerous developers Frontier Developments. The game is available in Early Access at this time. Frontier were the studio behind Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, but have moved out to make their own.
Here's the announcement trailer:
and a 26-minute long 'first look' video with one of the producers:
Roller Coaster Tycoon World
"RollerCoaster Tycoon World™ is the newest installment in the legendary RCT franchise. This next-generation theme park simulation and building game includes fan-favorite features as well as incredible new advancements!"
"Parkitect is a business simulation game that charges you with the construction and management of theme parks!
Build the rides and manage the parks, and management is key.
The parks need planning - more planning than just where to put that crazy rollercoaster!
Lay down the infrastructure to remove trash and deliver supplies to the shops quickly and efficiently. Hire staff to run your shops, rides and attractions, and be sure to keep them happy."
