Game Dev Tycoon is a tycoon strategy game where you create your own game development company. You start as a guy/gal working out of a cramped garage in the 80's and as you create popular games you'll gradually grow until you have enough money for a new premises as well as the option to hire employees. As you continue to grow you'll be able to make bigger, better games, research new technology to gain an advantage, create your own MMOs and even create your own powerful game engines.

+Nice simple graphics
+A lot of depth to it, especially as you unlock more things to do later in the game
+A huge variety of topics to choose from when creating your game
+A wide variety of consoles that come and go as time goes by
+The market responds to games in a realistic way
+Some good random events though there aren't enough of them
+The game lets you grow your company at a natural rate and only allows you to expand when you have enough money
+You can take publishing contracts or other freelance work to earn some extra money inbetween making games
+You have a lot of control over your game as you can decide how much time is spent working on certain aspects/elements of the game, when working on larger games you can choose who works on what aspect
+You can train yourself and your employees to be better at different skills which improves your games and improves how quickly they are made
+The game keeps track of what topics and genres work well on what console and what elements of the game are most important
+Very relaxing to play
+Lots of replayability
+Nice sound effects
+Workshop support
+Very low requirements to run it

-Once you've played it once nothing comes as a surprise such as when games consoles get taken of the market
-The size your company can reach isn't overly big, it never gets any bigger than a medium indie team
-Soundtrack is a bit repetitive at times

Verdict:
9

A fantastic game development strategy game with nice graphics, a lot of depth and a real feeling that you're in control. This is easily one of my favourite games on Steam and a game which you should definitely pick up if you're a fan of tycoon/strategy games.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

NOTE:
I'm reposting some of my old reviews because I adopted an easier to read format (and because for some reason I can't edit my old reviews)

INTRODUCTION:
The first game developed by Greenheart Games, Game Dev Tycoon is a Simulation game that, not just tries to mimic the events and hardships of game development studios, but also teaches the player a little bit of history on how our favorite pass time (or hobby) grew into this giant of an industry we see today.

Game Dev Tycoon places you in the shoes of a start up developer who will be making games for the different gaming platforms. Starting from the early days of the PC and Govodore G64 (Commodore 64), the game will send you through history up until the Console wars of the MBox One (Xbox One) and the Playsystem 4 (Playstation 4). Make games, hire staff members, research new technologies and build yourself to be the most popular and successful Game Developer in the world.

PROS:
+ Very nice 'Fash' type Art Style and animation
+ Surprisingly fun game mechanic
+ Relaxing and pleasing sound effects and music but...(See CON #1)
+ Great Re-playability
+ Fairly accurate historical progression on the video game industry's history
+ Good Value / Play time ratio
+ Minimal system requirements
+ Steam Cloud and Workshop Support
+ Devs trolled pirates of their game (They uploaded a cracked version of their game that, if played, would backrupt the player's company ironically due to piracy.)
+ Relatively cheap (at $10 or your regional equivalent) for its highly replayable game time

CONS:
- Could use more Soundtracks
- Could use more randomized and recurring events
- Limited Staff
- Game Review is a bit lacking on information on why your game did well (or poorly)
- A bit predictable if you followed the Game Industry's history since you can easily bet which platform would be most successful.

CONCLUSION:
GREAT GAME and well worth the money. Playing this game gives a great feeling of satisfaction as well as a bit of understanding why game developers make the decisions they do. Easy to understand and easy to learn but very difficult to master. It is a game that both Hardcore gamers and casual players can both enjoy.

Game Dev Tycoon is game about making games. You start in the 80’s and make your way up to modern times with new and innovative technologies.


As far as the story goes, Game Dev Tycoon kind of lacks one, but in this instance, thats a good thing. The gameplay is your custom character sitting in a desk making games and sometimes doing contract work. After you make a large sum of money from a large selling game, you move up to a more spacious office, instead of your garage. After time, you progress further, making new games, developing new game engine’s and making a name for your company.



The sound in the game is good overall, the music fits well. The sound of the research bubbles is oddly satisfying, but may get annoying over time. The graphics of the game aren't the best, but aren't needed for this sort of game.


The way the player makes a good game is based on complex math algorithms, but the player can check trends in the market, and experiment with different combos of game styles and genres in order to appeal to the masses



Game Dev Tycoon does some things wrong


The lack of story after completion makes the game boring

It’s easy to go bankrupt from a few bad games in the first 3 areas

Some employees early on are useless unless trained, costing a lot

The random events sometimes get in the way of game production

The game isn't always as realistic as it could be

Its slow to start

Sometimes you start with bad gamestyles

The games achievements aren't very easy to most


Game Dev Tycoon does a lot right too


The feeling of going through the years is satisfying

The ability to name your games and company

It’s a satisfying feeling getting a high score on a game

The game makes you want to keep playing

The researching is realistic

The game has playing cards and a steam workshop


Game Dev Tycoon isn't the best tycoon game available, but i would argue that it is the best game dev game. Its an Indie casual game made to kill some hours, and that is just what it will do. Overall i think the game is worth the $10.99(CAD) price tag, if you blow some hours into it, and play it more than once.

This game is surprisingly addictive and fun as hell. It is a fun look at the history of real life game development through a fictional alternate world view. So, instead of an Xbox, for example, you have an Mbox. anywya, developing games and seeing how they pan out critically, watching their sales, etc...while also training your staff and learning more about developing games so you can create more powerful game engines that in turn allows you to make more powerful games, while trying to determine which console/computer type to release your games, what genre of game to develop, whether you should go multi plat (later on), whiole seeing what genres are trending, chatting with the press, fielding requests, teaching students, and so on and so forth are only a small part of what is actually a simple game, despite all that, lol.

Plus, you can name your games whatever you want. I went with crass, vulgar, and offensive, lol. My company name in fact is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Disks for example (and that is relatively minor in my list of awful offenses in the game, lol).

Anyway, this is a really, really, really, really fun game that I recommend trying out. You cant possibly conceive of how cool this game is without taking the leap and adding it to your library. Do this thing!

Once I completed Game Dev Tycoon I immediately fired it up for round 2. I know that there is more to discover in the game. For the price of a cup of coffee you can pick this game up – don’t be one of the 97% that pirated it. Game Dev Tycoon is the one Tycoon title worth buying now that it’s on Steam. 10/10
