For some reason I can't build any cpus. After I build my first architecture, I assign it to a factory but it doesn't make any cpus. Weird.

game has alot going for it, shame i cannot pass the 1 GHz while competition can, like i can litterly not go over 1 GHz with only 1 core and the rest of the thing filled with the 1 MHz pipelines... (most effective). will keep from donating or anything untill the game is further in development. i can see alot of ambition! would be an amezing tycoon + design gameonce fully realised!

Can I install this on my standard account? (ps I mean Windows 10 64 bit)

No, you need windows 98...

backwards compatibility time

I don't know if it's me being dumb but I've done everything for research. Somehow the competitors are getting 4 cores and 1Ghz and It's literally impossible to do that. 

Yes, there is alread a game named hardware tycoon


name this game Hardware Engineering Tycoon

Epic idea

How did you make the copy of the i7 2600k? Did you mod it?

When will you update it???


When will you update it???


Why is this named exactly as another (older) game (without 2019)? Please at least make an unique name. Good concept though (same as the another game).

Please take this as a critism not a hate, I like your work.

How do i even build cpu's ive been trying to play and cant figure it out am i just stupid? also i placed a factory and made an arcitecture how do i link them?

The architectures dont have a texture in that version.  Just click on the blue box in the Architecture menu and you can make your CPUs.

No as in how do i start creating cpu's i made one architecture but i cant figure out how i get the cpu factory to make cpu's.

I can’t save a game. Is this a bug or has that not been added yet?

Not added in this version. You can only do it through console by typing "save" or "load"

Ok, thx

im playing the game in my browser on windows 10 and it says when i create a CPU THAT  the name is to short but i try and edit the name but its not working i also might not be doing the right thing either so theirs that too

There is a text box that says "Processor name" above extra features, put 1 character into it. You managed to get in game so text boxes should work.

oh and will try the rar version soon will edit

hey, why is grass black and the game is performing weird

edit: game easy

It just doesn't not work...

The game does not work! I tried the browser version and the downloaded one for Windows...

Could you describe your issue and provide your PC specs, so I can look into why it happens?  You can do that directly in the Discord.

this game is just a black screen?


While its loading, yes.

not working

Wont even work on mac



Buy a pc

Why do you have a mac ?

Rude, mac could get more fps than your pc on minesweeper


Yeah, I don't think so pal

it won't load, I'm staring at a black screen

Try the Download version, its newer anyway. Although there will be another update tomorrow.

I tend to like simulation games and I am going to try this one out but I thought I might give you a heads up that there is another game on itchio called "Hardware Tycoon" it has been around for a bit longer you might want to rethink the name just a suggestion 

I'm fully aware of that. That's why its called Hardware Tycoon 2018  :)


wtf that's old, I bet they have Hardware Tycoon 2021 in China already


what a savage

Its HT! 2019 now.

you should make it hardware tycoon 2019



How to start

Your names need to be at least 4 characters.

When is the next update coming ?

Hopefully within a week

Amazing, thanks for the info

how do i select traits

You cant. they are not added yet 

The game concept is great, but the game itself has bugs: Can't select traits, map, etc; You can't stop the production if you set it to 0; Sales can stop unexpected; Sometimes even if you set the price more than production cost, profit goes negative; competitors make CPUs with no wattage; etc

game needs, nothing loaded correctly. Kinda annoying cause your game looks awesome.



I will add it to my list of games to follow the development of. I can't wait until this is fully playable!

Thanks, ill keep working on it.


*Thanks, ill keep working on it!
