Make your own movie theater and restaurant during Steam Next Fest
Bangalore, India – June 16th, 2021 – Tentworks Interactive’s upcoming multi-business management game, City Block Builder, has released a demo offering players a sneak peak at its rendition of 1950s Los Angeles ahead of its launch later this year.
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 own 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.
This demo offers players the chance to create their own movie theater and restaurant. As the owner of these establishments it’s up to you to make every decision, both large and small, about how your enterprise operates. Choose which tiles, wallpapers, and furniture to decorate with. Decide what movies your cinema plays and at what times. Set the menu for your restaurant. Hire and fire staff. Nobody said building an empire was going to be easy!
The full game will allow you to erect all manner of trades from bowling alleys, to jazz clubs, to drive-in theaters, parlors and more. Micromanage each business down to every detail, from its layout, to its lighting, to ensuring the entrance makes optimal use of foot traffic in your bustling borough! City Block Builder encourages players to find creative solutions to complex problems. 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 incredible culture of the era. 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.
“City Block Builder offers an unprecedented level of choice as you build up the most happenin’ block in LA” said Jay Basani, CEO of Tentworks Interactive. “This demo is limited to making a movie theater and restaurant, but we think that it will give players an idea of just how detailed and charming the full game will be when it launches later this year.”
