We have a great community on discord who have been a solid rocks, suggesting new ideas, testing for bugs and very enthusiastic about Arcade Tycoon. We want to say a big thanks to all these people.

A couple people have been concerned about the delay of updates and leaving negative reviews we would like to say we are trying are best to update regularly, games take time and we are only a small team of 3.

Want to get more involved?
A hardcore fan suggested Patreon where you can subscribe to as little as $1 a month with benefits. This would help speed up the progression of the game and make the game more in-depth.
