Atari Disgraced On Twitter Due To The RollerCoaster Tycoon Announcement
It´s a trend to boil up games of the good old days and it wouldn´t be bad but the ingredients are tasteless. Developers of today love it easy. They take one of their licenses, I mean the popular games, the brands with a very good reputation and create a remake based on that name. The only difference is that the old games were pretty awesome and the new ones often will be silly. I hope I did put it straight enough.
Atari has a big fan base due to their RollerCoaster Tycoon titles from the past. Now, Atari announced that there would be a remake soon “RollerCoaster Tycoon is back and it’s coming to mobile! Rest assured, there is a PC experience in production now for release this year!”. That they talk focused about the mobile version, that is not the only reason for a huge community outcry now. If you look what people replied on Twitter, then you notice that many people are disappointed.
“there is a PC experience in production now for release this year!” does sound like a Facebook game with micro transactions, that’s the point that many make. I mean the chance is not big that they will surprise us with a real PC full game version. A real game is not developed in a year and I guess they would have announced it earlier otherwise. And PC experience does not sound like PC version. So, I bet too that they will announce a Facebook game. I can understand if people are afraid that it will be the usual mini junk game but with micro transactions. I would say you are disgraced Atari, look what the people would like to see, it seems that people give a shit about a mobile version or Facebook app. But it really fits to the trend of the gaming industry, if there will be no real PC version. Will publishers and developers ever understand what people really want?
