OpenRCT2 in short

OpenRCT2 is an open-source re-implementation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 (RCT2), expanding the game with new features, fixing original bugs and raising game limits. The gameplay revolves around building and maintaining an amusement park containing attractions, shops and facilities. The player must try to make a profit and maintain a good park reputation whilst keeping the guests happy. OpenRCT2 allows for both scenario and sandbox play. Scenarios require the player to complete a certain objective in a set time limit whilst sandbox allows the player to build a more flexible park with optionally no restrictions or finance.

Development started on April 2nd 2014 by Ted 'IntelOrca' John. Thanks to numerous contributions from others the OpenRCT2 project is making great progress.

An installation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is required in order to play. RCT2, with expansions, is cheap nowadays and can be bought from GOG and Steam.
