I'm Julian, PR & Community manager at simulogics. Our second game Prosperous Universe is currently in its First Access phase. I also do other stuff related to game dev:

About simulogics (

We are simulogics, a small independent game studio located in Germany. We craft simulation games for experts.

So far, this includes the airline management game AirlineSim (2002) and the space economy sim Prosperous Universe (2018). Both are browser-based MMOs providing their players with great freedom, realism, depth, and fair monetization models.

Part of our expertise stems from a long history of contract work. We have created web-based applications and tools for over a decade, with a strong focus on aviation, transport and logistics. These extensive insights into real-world systems have greatly informed the deep and realistic game design our fans have come to expect from us.
