Yerba Mate Tycoon is a business simulator game where you are running a yerba mate shop. You need to take care of workers, compete with other companies. Make new yerba mates (over ~150 additives to choose), take various decisions, choose your path to success, and a lot more.

 

 

First, you need to choose your localization and the CEO of your company. The UK? Poland? Germany? Paraguay? You decide in which country you will start the game. Each from the 19 counties got their tax rate, worker’s salaries/workers experience, tax/education future, and a lot more stats. Of course, as a big corporation, you can change the destiny of the country.

 

Now we need to make some Yerba maté. Pure? Or maybe with additives, you can choose additive from over ~150 additives, each with unique stats, you want to aim into casual yerba? Or maybe more luxury? Set price for your yerba, countries of distributions, prepare marketing for your product then release it. Has the product failed? Take a loan; if the product was a success, then maybe it’s time to buy some upgrades? Or maybe hire new workers? What about some science experiments with yerba? Maybe it’s time to do some bad marketing for coffee?

 

What about competitors? Destroy them or use them. Maybe they got some workers, that should work for you? Maybe you can buy their shares and earn some extra cash. Maybe our competitors can raise yerba knowable, and then you can take over the next country? Casual gameplay that with each minute of gameplays turns into something more complex.

Tycoon with ads is a bad idea, same with IAP. I would need to spam users with it. That’s why I had chosen a paid game. I will try to keep the price as low as possible. I think on itch.io (at EA start), the price will be <=$2.

*Itch.io don’t allow me to set price per country, on Steam, the price will depend on the player country.




What will the game be about?

Yes, that’s not a problem. You can play gamedev tycoons without knowing how to make games, same with hospitals/airplanes tycoon, etc.
