Take the role of an astronomer exploring the depths of the universe in the new game ASTRONTYCOON. Build large and accurate telescopes to explore distant stars. Discover a habitable planet or an unknown anomaly in a far corner of the galaxy. Equipment and research funding are important aspects of your work. Get scientific grants and publish your results, explore new technologies and telescope components.
The game will take you through 30 years of your career (720 rounds). If you do not go bankrupt in process, then the final score is calculated in year 2037. The game will allow you to proceed further.
Write your name in history alongside the greatest scholars of all time. Find a planet that is capable of hosting life, and your name will never be forgotten.
Start as an unknown scientist.
At the beginning, the game will explain to you several aspects of your work. It will explain what to do and how to do it. You will build your first telescope and explore a few close stars. You will discover a few binary star systems. The game will also teach you how to successfully fund your research.
Gradually, you will build up your fame in the scientific community. Scientific institutions will pay more for your research. You will make several new technologies available. You will build bigger, more complex and more accurate telescopes. The star maps will light up with dozens of new stars you have not seen before.
Soon you will be able to calculate the location of new planets and see them within star systems.
The game will gives you the ability to create your own telescope in several locations around the world. You will be able to combine dozens of components to make giant telescopes. New technologies will give you the knowledge to build space telescopes.
You can build huge telescopes, combine components and choose locations for construction

AstronTycoon is a desktop game. A player takes the role of an astronomer exploring the depths of the universe. He builds large telescopes to explore distant stars. He discovers habitable planets and unknown anomalies in the far corners of the galaxy. Equipment and research funding are important aspects of his work. The player needs to get scientific grants and publish his results, explore new technologies and telescope components.
The player starts as an unknown scientist. He opens more complex possibilities every level. At the beginning, there is a short tutorial to show the basics of the game. The player builds his first telescope and explores a few close stars. He also discovers several binary star systems. At the same time the game teaches the player how to successfully fund his research.
Gradually, the player builds up the fame in the scientific community. Scientific institutions pay more for his research while he builds ground and space telescopes. The star maps lights up with dozens of new stars that player has not seen before. Soon the player is able to calculate the location of the new planets.
everal other aspects of the game:
Weather during observation, instrument calibration, image error detection, fluctuation in luminous flux, dynamics of scientific lectures, telescope data bus size, rental of older telescopes etc. There are also few surprises
AstroTycoon is a PC-game for windows created by ANG People s.r.o. It’s a small company of two people. The game has been developed since Q1 of 2016. It was clear that we have to succeed with gameplay as we cannot match graphic with big established developers. Also we had no luck to found reliable coworkers to help us with development. But we found several testers at the end to help us finish our product.
The game has been created, tested and tuned for two years. Currently the game is ready for release. Our goal is to attract interest to fascinating work of astronomer. But we also have to keep dynamic gameplay over reality simulation. The second goal is to pay our bills. We did not use any kick started or early-access community financing. We don’t want to ask players for money with promises or alfa 1 products full of errors. We also don’t plan any micro transaction or DLC. All components are in the game at version 1. We have ambition to create few other games with interesting ideas.
