Trivia / RollerCoaster Tycoon

  • Ascended Fanon: RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and onwards calls guests "peeps", which was an uncommon Fan Nickname for guests in the RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 community.
  • Development Hell: World is suffering from this as the game's development has been constantly switching developers and delayed a few times as a result.
  • Dueling Games: With Theme Park. World is going against Planet Coaster (which is made by RCT 3 developers Frontier Developments) and Parkitect (a 3D RCT 1 and 2 throwback made by a smaller development team named Texel Raptor that was funded via Kickstarter).
  • Screwed by the Developers: For some people, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3's poor performance was an example of this, with people blaming the developers for not spending more time to fix it. Given that Technology Marches On, however, the game has become much more Vindicated by History.
  • Schedule Slip: World was initially supposed to be released in December 2015, but after the first of two Beta weekends, Nvizzio accounted for the feedback they received and decided that they needed more time to finish the game, pushing it back to early 2016.
  • Sleeper Hit: The developers had no intentions of creating the next big thing, especially when you consider that this was a 2D game in the middle of the Video Game 3D Leap era, but it was a massive success.
  • Working Title: For most of the development the game was called White Knuckle.
