Parkitect is a construction and management simulation video game by Texel Raptor studio. In this game, you build and manage your own theme parks.

The development of this game started in March 2014, and released in November 2018.

Parkitect provides examples of:

  • All Deserts Have Cacti: Various cacti are available as "Western" decorations.
  • An Entrepreneur Is You
  • Anti-Frustration Features: Accidentally built a building or prop in the wrong place? Deconstructing things will refund 100% of building cost, so you don't need to worry about money.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: You can hire entertainers in dinosaur costume.
  • Game Mod: The Steam Workshop not only host saved blueprints, but also new objects as well as gameplay features such as coaster cam and free camera, which the vanilla game lack as of 2021.
  • Haunted House: It's available as one of calm rides.
  • Isometric Projection: This game is full 3D, but this camera option is available from the settings.

  • Malevolent Masked Men: Downplayed Trope. Vandals always wear masks that cover the lower half of their face, but only thing they can do is destroying roadside objects like benches or lamps. And having security guards in your park can easily deal with them.
  • Shout-Out: One of unlockable achievements is named "Wild Ride", a nod for an infamous fan-made coaster of RCT2.
  • Spiritual Successor: To first two sprite-based RollerCoaster Tycoon games.
  • Super Drowning Skills: Guests can't swim at all.
  • Swan Boats: The Paddleboats ride can use swan boats.
  • Threatening Shark: Inverted Trope. Entertainers in shark costume will make guests happy.
  • Towering Flower: Big flowers are available as "Fantasy" decorations.
  • Vague Age: Age of guests are not defined in this game. All of them are able to ride coasters with extreme intensify, but they are childish enough to enjoy huge playground slides.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential:
    • You can make roller coasters with ultra-extreme nausea ratings, which will always make guests throw up.
    • You can pick up guests and dump them into water. They will not survive.
    • You can charge a fee for using restrooms.
    • You can pop guests' balloons (which they bought from your store) by clicking them.
  • Video Game Settings: The game has various objects and terrains, so you can build theme parks with very different environments.
    • Big Boo's Haunt: Using "Spooky" decorations like tombstones, skeletons, or huge eye creatures can invoke this trope.
    • Green Hill Zone: Use grassy terrain textures and many trees and flowers.
    • The Lost Woods: Addition to normal trees, there are fantastic plant objects like huge flowers, spooky trees with face, or big colorful mushrooms. Using these objects can create fantastic forests to your park.
    • Medieval European Fantasy: You can use medieval themed props like archery targets or old barrels to invoke this trope.
    • Palmtree Panic: You can use palm trees and sandy terrain textures to make beaches for your park.
    • Slippy-Slidey Ice World: Using ice/snow terrain textures and white-colored trees is a good way to invoke this trope. Also, there are snowman props.
    • Shifting Sand Land: Paint the ground with sandy terrain textures, and plant many cacti.
    • Tomorrowland: You can use various sci-fi themed props, like futuristic towers, Tesla coils or large radars.
    • The Wild West: Western themed props and sand/rock terrain textures are available, so you can easily build western-themed parks.
  • You Have Researched Breathing: In some scenarios, you need to fund your research team to unlock very basic things, like info kiosks or balloon shops.

How well does it match the trope?
