– Description:
Academia : School Simulator is a management game that lets you design, construct, and manage the high school of your dreams! As the school Principal, watch your students as they get bullied, find love, flunk exams, and basically just try to get through the roller-coaster ride that is high school. Will you offer the best teachers and facilities or cheap out and build giant classrooms with a 1:100 student to teacher ratio? It’s all up to you!

Academia is being developed by Squeaky Wheel, an indie PC game studio based in the Philippines. Their members have works on games such as Prison Architect, Spacechem, and Order and Chaos : Duels. They released their first game called Political Animals last year.

– Current Features:
The game is fully playable and has enough mechanics to keep you busy through a few in-game school years. Systems, like cooking, cleaning, hygiene, hunger, etc are already complete. There isn’t a full fledged tutorial but a simpler to-do list system that guides the player on what to do. There are basic sound effects and music, and more will be added as time progresses.

– Roadmap
There are many features that are still being designed that will make the final game much more complete and full featured than the current version of the game. These include:

Deeper and more complex staff and students

Research tree and/or school specialization

Subject scheduling

Varsity sports

Truancy, delinquency, bullying, and other serious issues that schools deal with

School Prestige, and competing with others for the “Best School”

Setting School Policies

Weather, Random Events, and Disasters

Mod support

The final list of features will ultimately depend in the feedback that we get. We cannot promise we’ll be able to have all these features in the game, what’s important is we get to work on the features that the community wants.

Academia : School Simulator is a simulation game for the PC being developed by Squeaky Wheel. We will be entering Early Access soon, and we’d love for you to get involved as we develop awesome mechanics like these:
Watch your students grow : Students evolve and earn new traits as they gothrough the roller-coaster ride that is high school. Watch them get bullied, find love, flunk exams, and learn more about themselves.

Select the best faculty : Teachers have different teaching styles, goals, and specializations. Keep them motivated or else they might resign!

Specialize your school : Research and specialize in the Arts, Math, Sciences, Sports, Agriculture, or Vocational Studies.

Micromanage your finances : Do the teachers get instant or brewed coffee? Do the kids eat healthy diets or cheap microwave lunches? It’s all up to you!

Customize Your School : Customize your school seal and motto to make a school that is uniquely yours!

Go to the Principal’s office : Student teacher relations, the parent-teacher association, and staff strikes are some of the random events that your principal will have to deal with.

Modding and More : As the game develops, modding and other features will be implemented in consultation with players as we bring the game to fruition.


Pug Hermit says:

Gave another janitor room in different places.

DonDonTheDinosaur says:

You also need to put the chairs near the tables in the Library, Club and Janitor area like you did in the Cafeteria.

Lord Faladar says:

save money and make smaller more densely packed class rooms. also put the chair next to the tables in janitors rooms. also less dirt if you pave all the area around the class. lockers in hall ways and more drinking fountains and plants in hall ways

Ahmad Zulirfan says:

Keep up the good work Biffa

Bastian Ziegler says:

Yes, a new Episode. Happy, happy, joy, joy. By the way, I think a bigger kitchen and a new cafeteria will be needed soon.

jtn2002 says:

Biffa, I think it may be time to plan out an entirely new school complex on the left side of the map to scale things up; the little tiny rooms just aren’t doing it anymore.

jimUkay says:

the chairs in the janitors room have to be where the circle is at those tables. Same with the club or it won’t work.

James Arnold says:

The kids are sick because the school is outdoors

The kids can’t use the tables in the club and library because there are no chairs next to them, instead they are pushed up against the wall, same as the janitors

The place is dirty because you only have one dumpster outside and not enough bins around the place, you will be able to get rid of a lot of janitors if you fix this

Hope this helps biffa, keep up the good work !

@Biffa: Strategy, Survival & Indie Games, Hi,

Just want to leave an honest comment so hope you take it as more of an constructive criticism over me just being mean.

Essentially, I am really fustrated and so close to unsubbing you, because of the fact that you just dont use basic common sense anymore (Just stating the truth, dont feel offended). Its not only this game, but almost all the games you play. What mostly frustrates me is that you upload 30 mins+ vids, but most of the content is you simply fixing silly screwups or being unable to figure basic common sense things, which makes me feel like I am simply wasting my time watching your vids. Anyways, below are some things I feel tht are common sense, but you might still probably want to know:

1) When you place tables, in most cases chairs go with the table not on towards the walls.
2 Janitor Problems:
– possibly due to very few bins (For a canteen, which you have seen gets heavily litterd, why would you only place 1 bin?)
– You have raised an army of janitors, and keep saying there not doing there job, I think the main issue is probably because theres only 1 dumpster at the front. (Which school/institute manages waste with 1 single dumpster? also do you expect janitors to make a landfill?)

Sorry if i sound rude, m just fustrated and ill atm, but yeah most of what i say is the truth and I feel i should inform you, rather than just cowardly unsub without you knowing why. (Dont worry still not unsubbing yet)

**If your not biffa and feel like trolling then please note i will just simply ignore you so good luck.

darkwear gt growtopia says:

You dont need ant more toilet and why your school is outdoor my school is indoor and i have many teash bin and stuff people need and 3 janitor and is still so clean note 4 is better

Ebba Lytle says:

Lots of fun in this game I think! Here’s a couple of thoughts from me to you…
Some of your desks and tables don’t have the chairs sitting next to them so they are not usable. This is the problem with the janitors’ room. They can’t be bothered going there because they can’t sit down.
 Remember to put in a classroom for juniors before the end of the year that has enough room for the sophomores you currently have… plus enough sophomore chairs to let the freshmen move up to their classes.
Plus, you still need to put walls around the school… yes, they are necessary!… to keep the school clean and the students healthy. The thing is, with no walls, the students and adults are walking on grass and dirt, bringing it onto the school corridors and rooms, and the more people you have the dirtier it is going to be. So, put sidewalks outside and walls for the inside and your janitors will be able to keep up (with much fewer) and the students won’t get sick as often.

TaliyahMC says:

1:3 ratio on janitors to students seems a bit much, lol…the devs might need to work on that bit…as always love this series!

TreyR9 says:

20:38 How you know you need more toilets (look at the top middle)

drk dragn says:

where’d O2 not included go? withdrawel! without an outside wall everyone’s health goes down and they get sick, and also tracks continual dirt into classrooms.. you also need chairs around the tables in the library

Man hunter says:

try making the kitchen bigger so all that food in the delivery would get used biffa and keep up the good work

Ayla O'Donovan says:

Seems like a huge waste of money to build another classroom when you could have just reassigned one of the freshman ones to sophomore.

Tim Janney says:

Fun series, really enjoying it so far. You’re probably going to need some more sophomore classrooms now that you have better teachers in the freshman level (more will pass exams). Also, maybe sickness is related to hunger? Cafeteria isn’t big enough for all the students to eat, could be a contributing factor.



GamingWithWoody says:

Get a gym

ThisDisneyKid says:

Hey Biffa! Love this series! Keep the videos coming!

mpfromnl1986 says:

Great Video! Two tips though. The school is dirty since all the kiddlewinkies are walking accross dirt to get to it. You preferably want to use walls/planters to guide them to only stay on the paths. Also the reason your Delivery zones keep filling up is you have a tinee tiny kitchen. They cannot process all the food delivered. That needs expanding in a big way as well as the cafeteria.

Frisno Bostrom says:

Nice work. I did notice some overfilled bins, maybe some extra dumpsters will do the trick.

Lord Faladar says:

more mewnbase?

#forsaferoblox Me says:

If you don’t do corridor walls children will get sick

DonDonTheDinosaur says:

When you get to Year 3 the Sophomore students will be Juniors and at Year 4 they will be Seniors so you will need to build classes for those. The U.S. school system in highschool goes Freshman, Sophomore, Juniors and then Seniors. Hope this is helpful.

Morbid Dinosaur says:

Thanks for another video! I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. I hope you have as much fun making these as I do watching <3 Never change Biffa!
