Jump into the shoes of an early 20th-century industrialist, start your own industrial revolution, and build a financial empire to rival any in history.

Rise of Industry is an industrial tycoon simulation game with an advanced A.I. driven economy that will challenge and surprise players at every turn. Every town has it’s own mayor and council that makes autonomous decisions and constantly changes the economic landscape, which creates a living, breathing world. Combined with procedurally generated maps, no two games are ever the same. If that’s not enough, we are also planning unique scenarios and a story rich campaign.

Our dedicated and hardworking development team has spent over a year slaving away at their keyboards to bring us this beautifully hand-crafted, genre-blending game that combines the best of real-time-strategy with a sophisticated industrial simulation. The wonderful and whimsical art style combined with the beautiful musical scores will keep you engaged and playing for hundreds, if not thousands of hours.


Alessandro Mochi always had the vision of making only quality strategy and management games, as he realized that games like Transport Tycoon and Industry Giant were becoming a thing of the past and newer entries into the genre were being lost amongst the waves of freemium MMO games flooding the market. He wanted to reinvent this genre for fans still hungry for great tycoon titles and also to introduce them to a whole new generation of gamers.

With that purpose in mind, Dapper Penguin Studios was founded and Alex began to assemble a team of diverse and talented people from around the globe to build his game. That game is Rise of Industry and it’s here today. It has been a labor of love for us all and came with many sacrifices for the whole team.

Of course it would never have been possible without the love of our fans. So, from all of us here at Dapper Penguin Studios – Thank you! We hope you enjoy the game, follow us as the development continues, and back us when our Kickstarter goes live on October 1st, 2017.
