Keep Cities Safe in Rescue HQ – The Tycoon on Windows May 28
PADERBORN, GERMANY — May 14, 2019 — Rescue HQ – The Tycoon, the emergency services management simulation developed by stillalive studios and published by the sim specialists at Aerosoft, dispatches onto Windows via Steam May 28, 2019.
Crises in San Francisco and Berlin are out of hand, but with clever ingenuity and a keen eye for management, the ultimate rescue center is possible. Police departments are on hand to prevent and halt crime, fire departments are prepared to halt blazing infernos, and medical services teams are ready to assist the infirmed and injured across the city.
Build and expand the city of your choice’s emergency services headquarters by hiring workers, purchasing property, and completing missions from the mayor. Mission rewards can increase reputation and add new vehicles, equipment, team members, workstations or more cash to further improve your headquarters. Manage the flow of money from city hall’s weekly budget, as equipment requires maintenance, and consistent emergencies can cause resources to dwindle.
Keep the headquarters humming by making sure the day and night shifts are happy with a common room and the resources they require. Unhappy workers mean worse response times and maybe even desertion as employees leave to find a manager who appreciates them. Build, hire, manage and keep expanding to keep things cool as the city heats up.
Dispatch first responders anywhere in the metropolis to help people in need. But dispatching doesn’t just happen with the click of a button. Effective management of vehicle types with different stats, personnel and experience require pre-emptive plans in addition to quick, reactionary thinking.
Some emergencies require all three teams to work together, from routine car crashes to special events including Football championships which may lead to riots to break up and fires to put out. Berlin or San Francisco could be under siege, leading to lawlessness and a scarcity of resources. It won’t ever get too serious though, as Rescue HQ – The Tycoon’s cute, approachable graphics and animations ensure the mood is always positive.
“We love sandbox-type games where we can manage many things at once, so police, firefighters and medical services seemed like a great fit for us,” said Winfried Diekmann, co-founder of Aerosoft. “With Rescue HQ – The Tycoon, we could combine our expertise in emergency services simulation with our passion for management games. Also, to get the community involved, Rescue HQ – The Tycoon supports extensive modding, enabling players to modify and add assets, scenarios, and entire maps of their own to the game.”
