The Business Simulation Game

Tycoon games & company management simulations

"US pilots started to hone their skills using flight simulators as early as the 1970s. It proved to be cheaper, and in some cases more effective, than training sorties. Today, anyone can learn the basics of driving in auto simulators in the same way that one can learn the fundamentals for building a company with the Virtonomics business simulation game."

A year ago, I decided that I was going to open my own small retail business. However, it was very frightening; I didn’t have any entrepreneurial experience or company management skills. I took several business courses and training seminars, but my questions and concerns only grew. My friends then advised me to try my hand at the startup simulator ‘Entrepreneur”. At first, I was skeptical; what can a game teach me? However, now I know for sure that this is the most effective way of practical training for entrepreneurs, and is certainly a fantastic tool for novice businessmen! It’s honestly a very realistic business simulator, with a huge amount of detail when it comes to business processes. This allows entrepreneurs to develop their practical skills regarding the process of managing and growing a startup. Without risking my capital, I was able to experiment with running a virtual company, while testing and improving my business model. The business simulator saved me from many failures in the real world, and it stopped me worrying about losing my investment. Six months later, I opened my first store, my investment was returned and I made a profit. Thanks Virtonomics!

I’ve been playing the economics game ‘Mafia Manager’ for about a year now. This is truly one of the coolest and most unusual strategy multiplayer games about the economy and the unwritten rules of the corporate world. The game offers a combination of tough economic strategy, company management puzzles and a varied PvP arsenal. The game is in no way short of industrial espionage and political intrigues. I ended up creating my own mafia clan and engaged in market wars with my competitors! In just a few months, I built a powerful corporation from scratch, I captured markets and companies from a dozen different tycoons, and even became president of a virtual state. My emotions from playing in this world are difficult to describe; you’ll have to give it a go yourself and understand that sweet feeling of victory. :)
Max Economic game Business and Mafia: Max review
I’ve been playing the tycoon game Virtonomics on and off for about 5 years now. As a fan of complex games about the economy, I’m constantly searching and trying different business simulation games for my students; good ones are hard to come by, I must be honest. Having said that, no business game I found managed to get even close to Virtonomics in terms of realism, variety and interesting gameplay. This game is constantly being developed and improved. It is as diverse and interesting as our life itself. Here, you can develop your economics, entrepreneurship, company management skills, finances, marketing, decision making, politics, market research, R&D, creativity, all while engaging with a really friendly community. Virtonomics Tycoon is a slow turn-based browsing business simulator for calm, thoughtful and intelligent people. Although, we are a passionate bunch to be honest. Give it a try!

HR management

Your employees work on oil rigs, factory machines, offices, stores, laundry services, hair salons. In order to manage your employees, go to «Employees and salary» on the main page of the enterprise. 

Key factors in HR management:

  • The required number of employees depends on the size of the enterprise, the number of equipment units.   The system will give hints on the number of required employees. 
  • The required qualification depends on the education level in the city and the equipment level: the higher the technological level of the equipment is, the more qualified employees are required. 
  • The salary   should be based on the city average and the required qualification.  

If you manage a huge international corporation, you will find the automated HR management function very useful.  It will save your time, by adjusting the salary every game turn based on the qualification and technological requirements.  

The location and qualification of your employees

If you plan to develop high-tech industries, or conduct research, it is rational to establish such enterprises in the cities with high educational levels. The information on  the education level of the city can be found by clicking on «Analytics» / «Macroeconomics». In the «World map» tab select the region or the country of your interest. It will show the list of cities, the information on the population, average salary, education level, wealth index, demographic situation. 

Types of enterprises and salary 

Just like in real life, low qualified employees earn less money, whereas jobs that require the employees to be highly-qualified are normally very well-paid.

For farms and plantations the required salary is only 50% of the city average, for manufacturing – 70%, service sector and stores are equal to the average salary on the market, office employees – 150%, power plant employees – 250%. The employees of laboratories and medical centers earn the most: the salaries are 4 times higher than the city average.

Employee training and development

Try to implement different HR management strategies in your businesses. For instance, you can hire employees that would work for the average city salary, but you will be able to raise their qualification by incorporating employee training.
