‘Cruise Ship Manager is a little gem in our portfolio. It’s a full-blooded tycoon game for lovers of the genre.” – said Lukasz Mach, CEO of Image Power – “We really want to combine the demanding tycoon-style gameplay with the relaxing atmosphere of holidays. Content-wise, you have one small ship at your disposal in this playtest demo and your task is to make sure it steers safely to the port of destination. We’re looking forward to receiving feedback from playtesters on Steam!’
ABOUT THE GAME
Manage your own Cruise Ship! Maintain your vessel and sell tickets to the wealthiest of passengers. Issue orders to your crew and maximize their productivity. Choose the layout of your ship and the kind of amenities you want to offer. Keep the prices right, passengers satisfied, and your wallet full!
Manage your ship and crew
Choose how you want your cruise ship to be built, make sure everything runs smoothly, and become a legend of the high seas! Decide the layout – where a 5-star restaurant should be and what should it look like? Does a casino strike your fancy or maybe a pool? And don’t forget about rooms for your passengers and crew members! Make sure everything is well connected and that you keep enough money for food or fuel.
Pick your crew wisely. Their skills will lead to your success or failure. Once you leave the dock, you’re stuck with the chosen people, so make sure you don’t regret hiring an untested rookie over an experienced veteran.
Take care of your passengers
Once you settle on the amenities and prepare the necessary equipment, you can finally search for passengers to invite onto your ship. But there’s a catch – it’s not up to you who buys your tickets. So price your tickets accordingly. You might charge a premium if you do, your passengers will feel entitled to the best service there is and it won’t be easy to satisfy them. On the other hand, you could sell the tickets at a low price and improve your budget through other means, for instance, by charging extra for fancy cocktails.
As your renown grows, more people will want to experience the thrill of signing up for your cruise. Build your brand and reach a point where people will pay any amount of money, just to say they were on your cruise ship!
Storm at sea or fire? Be ready for anything!
You have the power to choose the route your cruise ship shall take. Would you rather make some quick cash on a routine, 2-day cruise? Or maybe a long journey through the Mediterranean Sea is what strikes your fancy? You might be paid more for trips to exotic places but beware of the storms. Lives could be at stake if a fire breaks out or engines malfunction. It will be your task to end such a crisis – before it’s too late.
