Press Releases

Gain rewards by funding the golden oldies soundtrack and further language options

Bangalore, India – September 30th, 2021 – Tentworks Interactive’ upcoming multi-business management game, City Block Builder, has come to Kickstarter, offering players a chance to gain exclusive rewards and deals while also expanding the scope of the game. With your help, City Block Builder will realize the glitz and glamour of 1950s Los Angeles like never before.

While already slated for an Early Access launch on PC in 2021, this crowdfunding effort will help Tentworks gain the rights to acquire and produce more music from the 1950s to make it a truly immersive experience, as well as localization in additional languages like German. Backers can receive such rewards as a hardcover art book, merch and collectibles, and concept art illustrations of themselves, and more.

City Block Builder is a mashup of deep tycoon management games with large-scale city-building elements. Set in Los Angeles during the 1950s, the game puts you in the shoes of a young, budding entrepreneur who is determined to build their business empire. Fresh off the victory of WWII, Los Angeles is the pop-culture capital of the world. With the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, designer shops, and finest cuisine money can buy, all under a canopy of clear blue skies, the City of Angels represents the “American Dream” at its most ideal.

City Block Builder is an open-world tycoon. Instead of being limited to just one business type, you can erect all manner of trades from cinemas, restaurants, bowling alleys, jazz clubs, drive-in theaters, parlors and more. Micromanage each business down to every detail. City Block Builder encourages players to find creative solutions to complex problems. Choose how to run and customize your entire business. Select which movies play when at your theatre; decide what food goes on your menu; book bands to play at your nightclub! You have full control of each business, from its layout to its furniture and lighting, and to ensure that the entrance makes optimal use of foot traffic in your bustling borough! Setting up the L.A.’s entertainment hub has never been so immersive!

Each detail of City Block Builder is brought to life in glorious detail through hand-drawn art paying homage to the era’s incredible culture. Movies, posters, comic books, and advertisements capture the look and feel of the 1950s with their bold, technicolor palette, dapper outfits, and neat slogans. Even the foliage has been extensively researched to be accurate to the time, changing dynamically with the seasons.

While City Block Builder’s campaign mode will take you from rags to riches as you micro and macro manage each monetary decision, there will also be a Sandbox Mode offering full freedom to create the Los Angeles of your dreams with no expense spared! Every decision you make will set you on a different path giving different players varying outcomes.

“We’ve always been fascinated with the history of Los Angeles; a bustling economy where people from all over the world came to realize the American dream,” said Jay Basani, CEO of Tentworks Interactive. “We want to bring this world to life with as much detail as possible, so to really nail that 50s flavor we’d like to include more licensed music and products. Of course, that costs money, which is why we’re launching this Kickstarter campaign.”
