How Roller Coaster Tycoon Changed the Game

Story time!

Today’s Read is a bit of a departure from our everyday articles, but it really made our hearts flutter. It’s all about one man’s story about how the unforgettable/magical/exciting/amazing computer game, Roller Coaster Tycoon taught him how to correctly price a product. His product? This equally-magical app, Cone, which lets you pick colors from around you using your iPhone’s camera. Yeah, we really, really like this Read… 

If you’ve never played Roller Coaster Tycoon, our sincerest condolences, but here’s the gist: you’re given a piece of land and your goal is to convert it into an amusement park earning as much profit as possible. Or, you could build roller coasters in a way that shot the cars into space (which, didn’t make for a good park, but did make for a good laugh). 

So, how exactly did a computer game help this designer and developer successfully price his app? Well, you’ll just have to read to find out. Go on, relive your childhood while you’re at it.
