News: Atari is teaming up with StartEngine to offer investors a chance to participate in a revenue share for the next entry in the popular franchise.


RollerCoaster Tycoon is coming to the Nintendo Switch and you can be an investor. This was revealed earlier this morning when Atari announced an agreement with equity crowdfunding platform StartEngine Capital LLC to offer investors the opportunity to participate in the financing and future of a new game: RollerCoaster Tycoon for the Nintendo Switch.

RollerCoaster Tycoon on the Switch will be a new entry into the franchise. Since RollerCoaster Tycoon’s initial release on Windows PC in 1999, the franchise has been a favorite for gamers, with an immensely active community surrounding it. The mobile version of RollerCoaster Tycoon, RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, received a top-5 positioning for paid apps on the app store, and the free-to-play 3D mobile edition of the game, RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch, has garnered more than 12 million downloads. The franchise has moved more than 14 million units worldwide and generated in excess of $220 million USD in revenue in the United States alone.

The StartEngine crowdfunding campaign will fund development of RollerCoaster Tycoon on Nintendo Switch, an original game made specifically for Switch that takes complete advantage of the console’s innovative home and portable capabilities. This latest entry into the world-renowned theme-park management series will contain exclusive features and allow even more gamers to experience the fun and creative freedom of building the ultimate theme park. The studio behind the highly-successful free-to-play RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch on mobile devices, Nvizzio Creations, returns as developer, bringing their deep understanding and respect for the RollerCoaster Tycoon brand to the project.


StartEngine is one of the leading equity crowdfunding platforms in the U.S., connecting everyday investors with tomorrow’s progressive companies. StartEngine has raised over $50M for more than 100 companies. Based in Los Angeles, the company was created in 2013 by Howard Marks, co-founder of Activision, and Ron Miller. StartEngine has said they are committed to revolutionizing the ways startups are funded, thereby helping entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.

By contributing to Atari Game Partners’ StartEngine campaign, investors have the opportunity to participate in a revenue share for a best-selling franchise from an established developer on Nintendo’s record-breaking hybrid console. Investors will also be kept informed about the development of RollerCoaster Tycoon on the Nintendo Switch and be first in line to potentially become involved in future projects led by Atari Game Partners.

“At Atari Game Partners, we're confident in the incredible potential for the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise on the Nintendo Switch,” said Todd Shallbetter, President and COO of Atari Game Partners. “Community investment will secure the development process to create an exciting new version of this iconic franchise for gamers around the world to enjoy. The much-loved addictive gameplay embodied by the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise is a perfect match for the Nintendo Switch.”
