There was a Sim Tower 2? In all but name, yes! Let's take a look at Yoot Tower, aka The Tower II, developed by OPeNBooK9003 and published by Sega in 1998 for Macintosh and Windows PCs. Along with the Towerkit maps and other plugins from Japan!

  • Oddly enough the yoottower.com domain was available...So i have that now! As useless as that may be, it's still kinda neat. I wonder if it'd be easy to rip the old site from the wayback machine and restore it to it's 90's glory.

    • @Josh Allen For WIN32 and some WIN16 applications, you can use a resource editor. It allows you to edit text strings, dialogs, menus, graphics, sound, etc. I used XN Resource Editor for the translation I made of Yoot Tower. You have to be careful with edits though, XN Resource Editor isn't 100% stable and can trash an executable, so backups are important.

    • As a side note/question how hard would it be to actually edit the game files and translate the Japanese text to English? Given that we have the Japan version in full to mess with. (I know nothing about programming)

  • I did not expect to see this video at all, let alone the fact that it's recent! I used to love SimTower when I was like 7, I'd leave it running all night to make enough money so I could build the next large section of tower. It was probably the first game I ever beat as a kid and virtually no one really knew about it from what it seemed. Then like a decade later I somehow found out about Yoot Tower, but I remember there being basically nothing about it online and it felt super obscure. It felt kind of broken and I didn't give it much attention. Thennnn fast forward to 2020 and I see this video, coupled with the comment on here by the guy who translated the Japanese release exe and now after all these years I can give this one a fair shot! It's nice to see this and know I wasn't the only one who loved the obscure tower games!

  • Clint, I love your channel! Keep up the solid work. Have you ever heard of the Goosebumps: Attack of the Mutant PC game? I remember playing it as a kid in the late 90’s and I’d love to see a decent review of it by someone who appreciates the “1990’s-ness” of it.

  • i can remember playing SimCity on the Mac IIfx when the computer lab in college had them brand new ! the interface was so clean & neat ! ( compared to my DOS/Win 3.1 version at home ) could this version also be ported to Sega Saturn /3DO like previous game ? maybe resolution is more DreamCast/PlayStation range ? any thoughts ?

  • I think there needs to be a fan sequel to both The Tower games that combines a lot of features from both games that are great and adds a lot more stuff like the Japanese Mac version of the second game did. And modding support so people can meme.

  • Man your intro is so damn awesome I had to start from 0:00 several times Edit: to add some comment to the original SimTower, I hit performance constrains pretty quick as well. Since 64 bit is now the standard, one would usually end up running SimTower inside a virtual machine because 64 bit versions of Windows can't run 16 bit programs. For a while I was able to run SimTower under Linux (64 bit!) basically natively using Wine until the Linux kernel devs disabled the execution of 16 bit code for security concerns (or something along these lines). I could recompile myself such a kernel with the 16 bit feature enabled for myself but I'm too lazy for that. The game still ran too slow for me anyway with big buildings, as much patience as I usually have.

  • I am guessing that during the "port" process they either ran out of money or had their budget cut during development. Both possibilities were, and still are, common during the development of video games.
