RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch Dev On The Game’s Origins, Challenges, And More
May 13, 2017
RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch is the latest evolution of the classic park sim series. Launched earlier this year, the mobile game has been a big hit, hitting No. 1 in the free-to-play App Store charts (for a period of time) and subsequently picking up more than 6.2 million downloads and hitting 500,000 daily active users.
GameSpot recently had the opportunity to speak with Atari COO Todd Shallbetter, who told us all about the game’s origins, its early days, fan feedback, and a lot more.
Additionally, RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch is getting a number of updates in the coming weeks, including a “full color customization system” that will let players tweak the look of their rides, shops, and restaurants. Another new feature coming is the ability to visit other players’ parks, while a “photo booth” mode is on the way that will let you take screenshots of your parks and tweak them further with filters and frames, and then share them on social channels, of course.
