Normally I don't play simulation games but this was cheap at around $8 on steam atm and its fairly addictive to play since you can put in around 10 hours or more on one playthrough.

In Game Dev Tycoon you replay the history of the gaming industry by starting your own video game development company in the 80s. Create best selling games. Research new technologies and invent new game types. Become the leader of the market and gain worldwide fans.

Isn't that the one that if you pirate you always fail as the pirated copy is coded so everyone pirates your in game software in game?

Effin love devs with a sense of humor. Disney better not **** up Monkey Islands long tradition of good humor assuming they make more.

with GDS all you did was set the options for your game but in this one you have to adjust how much time you spend on what aspect of each game during development.


Both games are good but GDT takes it a little further and the indie dev that made GDT is still adding more and more content every week or so along with releasing patch updates. Kairosoft who made Game Dev story has never updated the game or added new content in a long time but instead keeps making other mediocre games instead of a Game Dev Story sequel.

the last reveiwer is a bitch, I had a game sell 40mil copies and made around 300mil and it got 10,10,10 and the last one gave it a god damn 1....


another game made a pitiful 500k copies and got 1, 2, and 3, but the last reviewer gave it a 10



this leads me to beleive the last reviewer is either that damn stupid or just really burnt out on drugs.

One thing I noticed is massive budget games make TONS if you pull it off. Obviously you need a good combination, but if you upgrade your engine, large booth at G3, large ad campaign and pull off a good game you get some serious $$$. Also IDK if you know but pet games for kids on gameling man...like selling gold. Gawdamn neopets brah

Edit: Just figured out how it works, the better games you make the lower reviews you get for good games, gotta go up at the right pace.

That'd explain what happened to me, i struck luck when i made a game called super Bario Hoes 2 and all 10's sold a fortune, every game after that was a 6-7 average and maybe a 8 if i was lucky from one reviewer,and that was pretty early on in the game

You inevitably recover, just need better tech and design than the previous one by a bit. I think the only way to do two hits in a row is to hold back on an engine upgrade.

Good management games always provide one of the best gaming experiences in my opinion. If you can get into them you will find they give you a very rewarding gaming experience.
