Fun for about 10 - 25 hours then it gets really repetetive (Without mods). Mods are almost needed to not make this game fun after about 9 hours.

Still a good game although i dont think its worth 9€ maybe more to 7€

i bought this game only a few days ago and i have already played this game for hours and hours, it is a really well made game and very clever idea. it is quite challanging at first but it is done in a way thats fun to play even if you loose however as you play on it gets easier everytime you try so keep at it. i highly recomend people go try their free demo at the very least and buy it if you like it.

Personally, I don't write reviews as when I buy a game, it is a game that I like.

This game is pretty great. The only thing you do is literally make games. The process of making games is very simple and yet getting good scores for your games can be a challenge at first as if you are not a knowlegable gamer, you wouldn't know which game works or not.

The gameplay is simple and fun and it is great for people who don't have the highest specs for a computer. The only thing that is somewhat dissapointing to me is that you have no customization for the game you make and what it would look like. For example, you can't tell if your action game is a first person shooter like call of duty or just a plain old action game from the 90's or 80's. This kind of keeps you out of the loop of what the game you make looks like and also how it plays which you leave it up to the reviewers to either praise the game or just completely decimate it. It can be really frustrating to make a game you think is going to suceed only to completely fail.

Overall, the game is great. this is a great story about the history of videogames and it helps us learn more about the gaming industry as a whole and what the game developers we love go through on a daily basis.

At first sight, I was afraid I had purchased a mobile game that was ported to PC. The interface is very simple, the graphics and visual design is also very plain. The game itself, however, is a very solid "Tycoon" game. There's plenty of different directions to take games, new technologies to research and the constant churn of new hardware and consoles coming out.

I found myself creating franchises, releasing sequels, surprising my audience with quirky new games, bouncing between huge AAA releases and smaller titles.

I do wish there was some more polish around the interface, which didn't seemed pretty buggy (I had to click slightly below all the buttons in order to get them to work) and the game's pace does seem a little fast. I hope the developer continues to work on adding content to the game, it does seem a little light on the "events" that happen. There's really only 3-5 different things that happen over the course of the game and you'll see them over and over and over and over.

I was able to "beat" the game in less than 5 hours, but it does let you keep playing. Overall, worth the price of admission, makes me wish for a bigger budget version though.

Simple and rewarding, especially when your risky combination of Virtual Pet/Action-RPG for the Vena Oasis turns out to be a 10/10 masterpiece and saves your company from bankruptcy. The background story that ties into Game Dev Tycoon gives a faux history of the gaming industry, which is amusing but also allows you to interact with it as you choose which systems and markets to capitalize on. The lack of research points I often experienced was annoying though, and I wish you earned more so you could train your employees more often.

The Good
+ Simple but can be challenging
+ Making good games is rewarding
+ Allusions in "story" to gaming industry are fun

The Bad
- Never enough research points
- 10/10/10/9 review scores

If you're a fan of management style games or have ever thought about making your own games, you'll probably like this. It's tons of fun and great for short intervals or long periods of time.

How on earth did I put 100 hours into this game......








Easy. Making millions of Call of Duty games to see how long it takes for the community to stop buying it. The answer is never.

Started a company called "Adam Sandler Games Inc".
Released a game called "you don't mess with the zohan".
The game got 5/10 on reviews (which is the same rank the actual movie got on IMDb).
went bankrupt.
10/10 would mess with the zohan again.

"This game is absolutely stunning!"
- me

No. Seriously.
Besides of bringing a semi-fictional brief history of game development, this game provides you to live through the challenges of being a game developer in different eras. It is so much fun to experiment and discover what combination of game genre, platform and target audience is appreciated by the gamers. Your own experiences and insight sometimes proove you right, but sometimes they can get your company almost bankrupt.

It also gives a very optimistic sneak peek of how an indie game developer's life is.

Game Dev Tycoon is a fun and cute game, and I really enjoyed my two playthroughs. I will recommend it to anyone that likes simulation management games. The game is summed up well in the descriptions, so this review will more be my experience with the game and nitpicks.

I haven't fully figured out why some of my games fail, even though they were a great combination, and others just explode on the market. Which lead to me doing significantly worse during my second playthrough. The bank lending me money at least once during almost every stage of the game, but it was actually a bit funnier and more challenging when I constantly fluctuated between hits and failures.

The last phase was way to easy on my first playthrough, because I had no specialists in my team, so I didn't go into the labs. But even though spending money on discovering things in the lab and building consoles made it more challenging, it made it way more fun, and on my last years of my second playthrough I had the second generation of my console out and a hit MMORPG.

The reviewers in the game can be jerks. On my first playthrough I made a lot of hit games, and there were constantly two of them that switched between giving me 9, so I got 9.75 instead of perfect ten. Felt like they were just trying to keep me from getting the achievement. :( And like I said, I got worse at the game the second time, so I'm probably never gonna get that achievement.

There is a lot in the game, but it never gets too complex to manage. The game that comes closest to the same experience of playing for me is probably the sims series. Where you just keep playing and there is so much to do, and a lot of minor variables, but it is all easily presented and managable. However... It suffers from the same problem that the main Sims games have for, which is that there are no natural "exit points" no real quests, so it can be hard to stop before you reach the end and can lead to game burnout eventurally. (I know sims doesn't have an end, but this game kinda has one where you get your end score) You could argue every time you finish a game within the game it is an exit, but then you get the reviews, then it goes on the market, and while it is on the market or before it gets reviewed you put your team on the task of developing, reaching, or training something else. So there is no place where the game feels like it is a natural place to take a break I would love if they make a sequel or spinoff game where they include some kind of quests or in game objectives beyond the achievements.

But it is still a topranking simulation game, and I am glad I bought it. 9.75/10

Really Really fun game! When I got it loads of people said that it didnt have play time in the game but i defintly think you could put at least 25 hours into the game and not get bored. The game making is extreamly fun, and the game itself is quite funny with lots of funny easter eggs. I would defintly recomend this game to anyone!

A brilliant game. Casual yet engaging, a simple concept and design carried out very well.
There are many small moments in the game which remind me of some of my favourite games i've played in the past.
I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, but mainly to:
A gamer who wants a casual game or just to kill some time
or
Someone who wants a cheap game that they can invest time in.
Overall, I would say the game is 9/10 with no real complaints. I would very much like to see this game progress and become better recognised.
Keep up the good work!
