As the director of a small state park, your job is to balance conservation, leisure, and fiscal sustainability. At the moment, there's minimal gameplay.

This is inspired by Maxis' Sim series of games, particularly SimSafari, and Chris Sawyer's Tycoon games. Premise-wise, it more closely resembles SimPark, but I never played it except for a demo. (Alternatively, watch 1990's Sim Games. SO GOOD!)

Controls

Use the arrow keys or move the mouse to the edges to scroll around on the map. The plus and minus keys zoom in and out. 0 toggles pause. F opens the Forest Policy. B opens the budget.

Overlap with past work

This game is a total rewrite of the original version in C#. I honestly like the original language and library more (Clojure and Quil), but Quil was starting to struggle with the amount of drawing, and I was hitting the limit of my optimization abilities and available information online. (Another drawback: I also am giving up the browser version, unless people get XNA in the browser working.)

Watching Thin Matrix's  video devlogs for Equilinox inspired me to press on. :) Despite some similarities, the design of this game wasn't really inspired by Equilinox. (I've also enjoyed  and Thoughtquake's video devlogs for Cargo Defense and Cliff Harris's Democracy 4 video devlogs)

The original versions used art from the Low Poly Forest Pack by Devil's Work.Shop. (I had converted the models into isometric 2D images, using this process.)
