Party Hard by Pinoki games came out in August of 2015, now nearly two years later, publisher tiny Build is announcing Pinoki’s second game Party Hard Tycoon is ready for Steam’s Early Access release. Party Hard was best described as a pixelated stealth-action puzzler. Hitting themes of wacky insane parties that welcomed innovative level building through the Steam workshop, Party Hard took the protagonist, a serial killer in search of a good night’s rest, from seedy bars to alien spaceships. While Party Hard received mediocre reviews, it definitely attracted a fan base.
While we wait for Party Hard 2 which was originally slated to come out in Q3, but has been pushed back, tinyBuild offers up Party Hard Tycoon to tide us over. Party Hard Tycoon boasts the same aesthetic as Party Hard, but instead of playing a serial killer hell bent on murdering everyone attending a party, you take on the role of a nightclub owner who is tasked with;
throwing the most profitable party ever. It takes place in the same universe as tinyBuild’s 2015 hit Party Hard. . . There’s a setup period where you choose a theme, characters, equipment, and place everything. Then the actual party starts. Depending on certain factors like how much you invest into marketing, a number of people will show up and start rating your party.
You’ll be able to plan out your parties, buying equipment, booze, goods. You’ll need to set up everything, placing speakers and attractions to make your guests lose their minds on the dance floor, and of course, you’ll need to hire security, while it hasn’t been stated that Party Hard‘s protagonist will be making an appearance, I wouldn’t put it past him.
Party Hard Tycoon will be available for download on Steam Early Access on October 19th, no price has been announced as of yet.
