Crazy cheap, was going to buy this a while back but held off. Definitely time to pick it up now! Cheers for posting this, wouldn't have noticed otherwise.
Hard to get a consensus - would this run reasonably well on a 6th gen i3 with 8GB 2133 DDR4 & an HD520?

Not expecting 'wow', but more like "would it run without making the laptop look awful"
Cracking deal.

Might be worth purchasing and testing if it is playable and if not you can always issue a refund with steam.

It'd be a gift, and the laptop is wrapped up, so I don't think it's a viable option, unfortunately
Wow, brilliant!

I think I'll mention it when she's opened it and see if she wants to it.

She's not much of a gamer, but spent a lot of time in RCT3, so this seems like it'd be up her street

You'd need to play at a fairly low resolution and on low settings to get a decent frame rate. Even then it will become a slide show once your park starts to get bigger and has thousands of guests walking about.

Thanks. I'd read that you needed a dedicated gfx card, but seen plenty of people mention they were on 2nd Gen i5s with onboard graphics

Another one is Parkitect, very similar to RCT but updated. I think it's £15 at the moment.

My core i3-7100 (8th gen?) onboard graphics was barely usable, even with the fairly basic example parks. I had to wait for my GTX1060 to arrive. And that's on fairly low resolutions (1280x768 if I remember correctly). As mentioned, it turns into a slideshow very quickly. I'm even expecting my 1060 to run out of steam soon.

And it's typical that I bought this as an early Christmas treat, and was very pleased with myself that I only paid £13... I don't feel hard done by though, it is really good.

(By the way, playing this over Steam link is very good, I can play it fine on my laptop which struggles with Word sometimes. If you have a beefier PC then it can be done that way instead).

Wow, this was £13.50 in late Nov! Good deal OP
Thought with all the comments here someone mightve commented what this is like compared to the rollercoaster tycoon franchise 😁

Anyone played both?

Am currently replaying RCT 1,2 and wacky worlds expansion on the Android tablet. But have them on steam too for PC.

Shame there wasn't more Android ios games like RCT about too! So many old games would be ace if could convert to Android etc. Like settlers, age of empires, anno etc 😊

so regardless of how powerful the laptop is (or not, if lacking graphic power), the link will allow you to play the game without any slow down?

Yep. It's more of a strain on the network than anything else. I think Steam do quote a 'minimum spec' for the client, but I'd say anything that can run Windows 10 will be fine as a client. For me it means I didn't have to fork out for a gaming laptop, I could get the same power running on my desktop.

There's a few videos on youtube showing 1080p gaming on dual core notebooks. It's pretty decent.

The concept is very familiar coming from RCT (which is understandable as I think it's the same dev team!), but the interface and flexibility are right up to date. Having to keep guests happy and dealing with the finance side of things feels (for me) like it was lifted straight out of RCT, which is no bad thing really.
