GearCity is a complex economic strategy game, in which the player runs a car manufacturing company. The title was created by an independent one-man studio Visual Entertainment And Technologies.

Mechanics

In GearCity we control all aspects of a company operating in the automotive industry. The most pleasant of our duties is undoubtedly car design - we can choose the elements of the car body and decide on the components (from engine, through gearbox, to suspension). This is not the end of the story, however, as we also have to choose whether we choose to install cheaper parts to keep the price of the vehicle low or whether we prefer to install more expensive components, thereby increasing the value of the vehicle.

It is worth mentioning that from the moment our work leaves the drawing board, it will take a sufficient amount of time for it to reach the production lines and showrooms. We can find out whether we have succeeded or what needs to be changed by reading reviews in newspapers (which are also an indispensable source of news from the world). Sales, on the other hand, depend on a number of factors such as purchasing power, population, inflation or interest rates specific to a given region.

All this, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. Our list of duties also includes the construction of new factories and showrooms, marketing activities (like the financing of racing drivers and their teams), or even the need to react to changing fashion, as well as historical events. The latter include the panic of 1907, the First World War and the great economic crisis of 1929-1933. It is worth noting that during the war nothing stands in the way of shifting our activities to the production of equipment for the army.

It is important to keep an eye on the situation, because the competition is not idle either; however, if we look at the situation on the stock exchange, we can find companies that are doing not well enough to be taken over by us.

Technical aspects

GearCity features raw visuals, which consist mainly of user interface elements, with a large number of windows containing all kinds of reports, charts and information presented in the form of text. It is worth noting that the design of the car takes place in a simple, three-dimensional environment with simple graphics.
