Snow Cone Tycoon is a fun and educational game for all ages! Players start their journey with a block of ice, a few paper cones, and some flavored syrup. With each new day, players attempt to build their fan base by making the best snow cones on the block! But, earning the rank of Tycoon won’t be easy. With ever-changing (and sometimes disastrous) weather conditions, players must adjust their recipe, manage their resources, and strategize.
Snow Cone Tycoon features 13 ranks and 80 unlockable characters (including zombies!) and is available now for FREE on iOS and Android devices.
About the Developer
As a kid of the 80s, I always wanted to make my own games. It was my dream. I started programming when I was 14 in hopes of becoming a game developer. I am now 38 and a Solutions Architect for the automotive industry, but I still have a passion for making games. Over the years, game development has been my hobby. I’ve released indie games on Xbox 360 and Steam. (Bop N’ Pop!, Rad Raygun, and Super Rad Raygun)
As many game devs have found, the indie game market is tough! It’s difficult to stand out in such a saturated market. After spending so many years on siloed projects with minimal success, I decided to take a new approach.
As a father of two, I wanted a project that could involve them as well. Thinking back to my childhood, I have fond memories of a little game called “Lemonade Stand” for the Apple IIE. So, I worked with my kids to build our version…a “Snow Cone Stand”.
With this new approach, I cannot fail. By sharing the dev experience with my kids, I feel I’ve already won!Screenshots
