So will Airport CEO will be like Prison Architect but with airports?

With all respect to the creators of Prison Architect and their fantastic game, we are by no means trying to make “Airport Architect”. We can, however, admit that the success of Prison Architect inspired us to make the game in 2D rather than 3D (which has allowed for a much faster development process) and that we have drawn inspiration from the superb details of their game, as well as from many other amazing tycoon games. Airport CEO will feature a mix of tycoon best practices while introducing new aspects into the tycoon genre, conjured from our own ideas and experiences of playing tycoon and business simulation games.

Will Airport CEO feature multiple-floor terminal design?

Initially, no. Eventually, yes! However, we have not yet started developing a multi-floor system and will most likely not do so before an early access alpha release. This feature will be designed and implemented further down the road.

What techniques are used for developing Airport CEO?

Airport CEO is being developed with Unity, an amazing game engine that anyone can learn to master. We are coding in C# where we rely heavily on an MVC architecture and the utilization of a vast array of different software design patterns. We are also using Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator for the development of sprites and textures.
