Project

Target

We are expecting that our main target audience would be consist of people who are between 18 and 35 years old and has higher education background. Preferably the ones who played city planning simulation and tycoon games like SimCity, Cities Skylines, Tropica before.

Project

Approach

The concept is an all around world hype that can capture people’s interest easily with its funny and satiric game world. There will be also a competition factor among the players with online rankings and badges on different titles for their achievements.

1·Progression 

Buildings & Residents

Buildings in the game will be getting old and unsafe in time.

Every floor in a building will be corresponding to an apartment. So if a building will have three floors it will have three apartments.

How old and low the safety of a building is residents of that building are more willing to accept urban transformation.

Mechanıcs

Political Parties

The players can get closer to a party to get its permits quicker.

There will be two political parties in the game. While Blue Party has 6 poor neighborhoods’ municipality, White Party has 3 richer districts.

If the player get closer to a party they will pull away from the other at the same amount.

Mechanıcs

Market Value

When the economic growth goes up people will be more willing to buy new apartments.

Maximum market value will increase based on inflation rate and maximum market value can be paid will increase based on economic growth. These values will be used to set the flow in order to match the players’ skills. As the player’s skills get high economy will be hard to deal with.

When the inflation rate goes up people will be less willing to buy new apartments.

INTERFACE

Menu Navigation

A list of under construction & unsold apartments.

Top menu will have settings button, sound toggle button, no ads button, other in-app purchase, and the date. The bottom menu will contain constructional interactions, political interactions, economy interactions, bank account summary and a quick jump selection that navigates the player between ongoing constructions.
