News Tower Out Now on Steam Early Access

News Tower, the 1930s Newspaper Tycoon Game, Rolls Out Today on Steam Early Access

Run your paper, report the hottest scoops and build your media empire in this delightful strategy management sim!

NEW YORK, NY – Feb. 13, 2024 – On the steps of City Hall this morning, Twin Sails Interactive and developer Sparrow Night issued a joint statement to reporters announcing that News Tower, the media tycoon management sim set in the bustling 1930s, is available today for PC and Mac via Steam Early Access. Gamers were stunned to learn they too could begin living the life of an aspiring publisher running their very own newspaper empire, expanding their business, recruiting new employees, and tracking down the decade’s juiciest stories for the front page.

News Tower is available for 19.99 USD/EUR, but savvy players can save 10% on the game during this first week of early access. “I have to tell all my friends,” said one gamer, who hurried home to their personal computer recreation station.

Questions flew about what content News Tower will offer at the start of early access. Players can discover three main quest story lines, with more to come as early access progresses, as well as over 100 items to optimize their towers. Unlock the entire NYC map and report on a range of stories from 1930 to the end of 1932. Future updates will deliver new challenges, skills, items, quality-of-life improvements and more.

As the publisher of a down-on-its-luck newspaper, your goal in News Tower is to turn fortune around and build a booming media empire! Recruit and manage every profession necessary for success, including reporters, photographers, janitors, ad salespeople and more. Uncover exciting stories across the globe, matching your editorial line with readers’ interests – but watch out for powerful factions like the mayor and the mafia trying to peddle influence with unique rewards. Build and optimize your tower to ensure the well-being of your employees and meet your printing deadlines, all while balancing editorial quality and gaining new customers!

Officials say to watch out for the following News Tower Key Features:

  • Investigate Scoops Around the US: From cat disappearances to Prohibition and the Great Depression, you’ve got to break the news while it’s hot! Follow leads across the world and choose which angles to pursue to develop each story. Will you maintain the integrity of freedom of the press, or trade influence with different factions in the city?
  • Compose Your Newspaper: Lay out your paper with the articles you’ve produced each week. Hard-hitting journalism, sensational gossip, income-generating ads – you decide what makes the cut. Just make sure it’s not old news!
  • Build & Optimize Your Tower: Manage the layout of your production line and hire the right people for each job. But don’t neglect the well-being of your employees while you’re chasing profits, or the final product may suffer!
  • Grow Your News Empire: Start small and conquer New York by expanding your distribution network to famous neighborhoods like Wall Street, Central Park and more, unlocking new upgrades and readers with their own interests.
