Hardware Tycoon is a free simulation/management game where you run your own hardware company, influence the market, and compete with other companies - either only to stay afloat or revolutionize the industry.

Right now it's in rather early stages of development; the only hardware available to develop is the CPU.

The recommended way to play or in case of graphical issues:

  • Download to your machine from the links below, or if you prefer to play in a browser, use either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
  • Download and install Lato fonts.
  • Your video card and browser should support WebGL (pretty much all modern ones do).
