    I'm looking at all those pictures and what's coming to mind is that awful spin-off-ish game that came out on xbox a few years ago.

    It can't be any worse than Thrillville. Those two games were horrific.

    Until I hear that they've confirmed that it will be custom content compatible, I can't get excited.

    The communities' work on CS was what RCT3 playable!

    If you want to feel old, that spin off game wasn't out "a few years ago"
    it was out 7/8 years ago.

    According to Atari Area 51 games have put a team together are veterans in working on strategy games and that have worked on games such as the sims, railroad tycoon, age of empires, tropico, pirates and forza.

    They will finish and further develop what pipe works have already developed.

    Well my enthusiasm for this game has just died.

    A change of studios is nearly always a sign of troubled development. Even if an arguably better studio is being brought in I can't think of any games that have changed studio mid-develop and not ended up a compromised product.

    Does anyone have a link to a news article about this?

    area 52 games don't seem to be an arguably better studio, which is saying something because the previous developer had a pretty awful portfolio

    The only game they have involvement in on their website is roller coaster tycoon world.
    Can't find much more information about them anywhere.

    if i am forced to be positive I can only say that this company might put all their effort and time into this, just to gain publicity and a good name out there

    There's an interesting twist occurring over at ShyGuy's world! The Community Manager from Pipework has just started reposting on the forum. For those unaware Pipework were the developers behind RCT World before Atari axed them for Area 52. The posts are very cryptic but it seems they plan to salvage what they can from the project and make another Theme Park game!

    All these new games, It's like RCT does Game of Thrones :p

    I'm sure glad I've not spent my life waiting for this.

    Meh. Just looks like they've polished the old games. As long as it supports custom scenery and rides at least we have something more up to date we can play with.

    That looks utterly dreadful. Didn't think they could do worse than the near-unplayable last instalment. Version 2 remains a high point for satisfying isometric graphics and easy-to-use but complex game-play with real depth.

    To be fair, the animated peep's reaction was the same as mine upon viewing that video.

    That looks utterly dreadful. The coaster style reminds me of those cheap/free iOS apps which are ridiculously hard to control.

    From that trailer it looks like it should be about £1.99 on the app store, but I stand to be corrected. :)

    The positive to all of this? Atari have gained a much larger user base on their forum to provide feedback.

    The negative? It's all pretty malicious.

    What usually happens is that you get banned for being too negative :p
