FREE Espresso Tycoon Prologue: Underwater is coming THIS OCTOBER!

Espresso Tycoon Prologue: Underwater
will be released as a standalone, FREE game this October. We want players to see the potential of the full game: play in a completely new location and try out the most requested features. Here’s the gameplay trailer (released today):

The prologue will feature a brand new mission in a very surprising location - Underwater (Sydney)! This means the players will build their coffee business in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. The Underwater location has been chosen by the players' community in voting:

Besides that, the Prologue will also contain a tutorial mission (based in London), already known from the demo version.

We’re listening to the players’ voices!

The Prologue’s development has been shaped by the analysis of the player’s feedback. During playtests and Steam Next Fest our players filled almost 1000 surveys. Armed with this feedback, we’ve fixed a lot of bugs, improved the camera movement, and the game balance and - of course - added a bunch of new features:

- a possibility to have more than one barista working at the same time
- skipping time to the next day
- new decoration items
- a possibility of selling snacks 
- toppings in the coffee editor
- profit and loss table
- different coffee machines
- a possibility to save and load the game state
- a brand new main menu screen

We would like you to take a look at Espresso Tycoon Prologue: Underwater and share your thoughts.
