The UK-based studio Frontier Developments have announced that their first project for the Wii U is a roller coaster business management sim, similar to Rollercoaster Tycoon that gained popularity in the late ’90s. The game is called Coaster Crazy Deluxe and will feature various theme park rides to generate interest and keep the business going without major incidents.
Frontier Developments was the developer for RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, so the studio is well-versed in how to make a themepark sim work. The studio has stated that the game will make full use of the Wii U GamePad, including the ability to use the stylus or the analog sticks to build your coasters. The game also features the ability to flick the GamePad upward quickly to eject the Crazies from the coaster, signifying that Frontier knows one of the funnest parts of roller coaster development is watching your creation fail horribly.
