Server Tycoon is game that that featured on Kickstarter. Your role is a server manager, and your goal is to remain online whilst finding ways of taking your opponent's servers offline.

Because of the scope of the project, the developers chose a freemium model with in-app purchases.

Controversy[edit | edit source]

The game originally launched on Kickstarter under this project. The game gathered attention from several technology news outlets, such as The Register, who featured an article on the game in January 2016. That project was cancelled on February 23, 2016, possibly due to negative attention being drawn to the original freemium aspects proposed for the finished product; 422 backers had pledged €17,453 out of the total funding goal of €100,000. The project was relaunched the same day.

As of March 25, 2016, the project failed to meet its €20,000 funding goal, with €11,121 having been pledged by 330 backers.
