Description Edit | History

Management simulation games task players to build, expand or manage fictional communities or projects with limited resources. The player's goal is not to defeat an enemy, but to build something within the context of an ongoing process.

Sub-genres
Video Game Theme: Commercial / Public Transport
City-Building The player acts as overall planner or leader to meet the needs and wants of game characters by initiating structures for food, shelter, health, spiritual care, economic growth, etc. Success is achieved when the city budget makes a growing profit and citizens experience an upgraded lifestyle in housing, health, and goods. While military development is often included, the emphasis is on economic strength. Example:
Video Game Theme: Amusement Park
Theme Park Players must construct roller coasters and sometimes other fairground attractions in order to attract visitors to their fairgrounds or otherwise achieve their goals. Example:
Video Game Theme: Space
Colony These games utilize construction and management extensively, with incredible detail in more aspects of the game than other genres. They also may feature combat, typically not a feature of the genre. Example:
Video Game Theme: Business / Construction
Business Attempts to simulate an economy or business, with the player controlling the economy of the game. Example:
Video Game Theme: Steampunk
Factory Factory games typically involve the efficient conversion of resources into production through a combination of manned workforce and automated systems. Some of these are closer to business simulations, where the player is challenged to make products in a cost-effective manner to compete with other virtual competitors. Example:
Video Game Theme: Government / Politics
Government / Politics Simulation of the policies, government or politics of a country, but typically excludes warfare. Example:
