I have been casually looking at this game online. It looks like a newer more indepth version of the 1960's game 'Tycoon' by Gordon McKay.

I would disagree. I think that the production/selling costs central to Tycoon are subordinated to the drive of technology progression which is at the core of this game, and the earlier Lokomotive Werks.

I don't find that designer name in the database. Do you mean Tycoon? No, that is nothing like Automobile.

I stopped at the 1960s game I found. That does look more similar. In that case I haven't played so I don't know. It occurred to me later that Gordon McKay could be a publisher. Gordon McKay is probably the designer too.

Is there any provenance to "- Business Game" in "Tycoon - Business Game"? I suspect it's an error.
