In our subject 'Gamelab' at the University, we get an assignment in the start of each semester to pitch an idea and hopefully work that idea into a working 'game'.

We (the team) is now at our final stages of our education. The project is handed in and the team is going their seperate ways. Because of this the production and development is put on hold for now and the updates will not be as frequent as they have used to be.

In `Animation Studio Tycoon` you take on the role as a young, ambitious Animator during the birth-stages of the industry and into the golden age. Lead your studio, set industry standards by bringing forward pioneering new technologies, start with short comedies and go over to full-length adventures on the high seas! Are you ready to become the new Dalt Wisney?

The age we've set is +7 years of age - however someone below 7 years would most likely rock this game. It's mainly the language (unknown words/strange words) and the actions/gameplay itself. But please do play together with kids and younglings! We wish feedback from all ages, genders and branches of the society!

The game should be playable from all browsers. If you get an error regarding memory, try closing your tabs and refresh.

Thank you & have fun:)

Like the game, but it's pretty hard as you get later into it.

Always crashes when I make 100,000

my load save doesint work


I research something but then it finishes but I don't actually get it as its like I never researched it


Its shown this every time after the loading.


I started to give viewers subtle hints in the titles.  See if you can find them:





I do say, a new genre should be documentary.

Hi guys, thanks for dropping by.

Aware of the issues in the current build and have a back-log off bugs that needs to be fixed. Try refreshing or another browser, it should work and run on any but recommend google chrome.

Also have plans to re-do the whole game from scratch and put it up to the current stage and expand it from there. Goes without saying that it's quite the job but nothing that can't be done.

Appreciate the follows and the comments here, good and critique - it's awesome to see that it still is living and breathing on its own here - but now, I've given you my word that I will pick AST up again and together I truly believe we can do it!

Thank you and stay awesome:)

its broken


me ether


it wont let me load


Love it but its kinda hard






very hard


huh i got a javascript error or something


What annoys me is the music and sound effects from the game "The Movies" used here. Otherwise interesting concept.


What a marvellous game that was...


Sure was and is! Heavily inspired by it and we lent the music from it, as a homage to its legacy. Looking at it in retrospect we should have written it in the credits. Since there was no commercial release of AST or any revenue made of it there was no problem to use it.

Way too hard...




doesant show my mouse when I go to click on things


Dont press the accept button twice 



its nice it loads up

i like the concept i just hope the people from the game the movies don't fine you for taking a song they put on their game... back in the day.. not sure if someone else said anything about it i like the idea as i said... fun otherwise

Hey just wanted to comment to ask if you would like your cool game to be supported by Gamer World?

This game is pretty good, like the comments below says it does experience some bugs at times, but if this game ever gets revived and developed again, I have a feeling it would get more and more attention, it's not easy to find animation tycoon type games, so if it does get updated often, I would likely play it a-lot more.

Hi guys - haven`t been active here lately so late post; sorry for all the trouble you`re having with the game, shouldn`t be a problem running but seems like it is; will try to look into it. 

The development and game itself is dead as for now but it might change.

It doesn't save??? Wow 

It doesn't save the game. After a while it hits an error and so I can't continue either.

It makes you research stuff twice
