This game plays like an app game but without some of the fun of said app games. It's a chore and it looks like a half done placeholder mess. Not worth your time or money but kudos for putting it out there. Maybe a sequel will polish this thing up.

This game is hurendous. I have trying to give it a chance time and time again but it keeps being a pain in the head. You really have to play the tutorial first but even that is messed up. Its not a good game, both stylish and simulation wise. Then the game crashes unexpectedly. There are good business simulation games out there and why this game is going so far off I can see what they tried to do, but failed so hard that the sequel must be better right. But don't buy this game and do not buy athe seqiel or any game from this developer cause they are not doing good games... playable games unfortunately. I am on the bring to ask for my money back at this point.

I wasnt expecting much from a 0.65$ game, but at least i was expecting a working one.
Once in game, i created my company and then entered the bank for a loan. everything worked well except the part where i tried to leave the bank. the only way is to hit escape wich bring you back to thye company creation menu.
Basically this is an unfinished game that is being sold to you by lazy people who never took time to finish it.
Do not buy. for your own wallet's sake.

Best experience of a game I've ever had. Greatest game. Would reccomend it to people who love games that give you absolutely no background whatsoever; and games that just crash out of nowhere. This game is also very innovative and different. Instead of telling you what to do, it throws your character into a town where you have absolutely no idea what you're doing. I am one of those people. Would also erectomend it to peopelo who love sexy graphics. They are so smooth for 1982.

Horrible horrible game. DO NOT BUY! If someone wants to give it to you tell them to f-off!

You can't skip the tutorial and make sure that when you do what the tutorial asks you to do you don't take to long because the tutorial guy will pop-up and repeat the same sentence over and over again. And if you try to do something outside the tutorial the game crashes (at least mine did).

So would I recommend it? Yes to my enemies, or to someone who wants to throw their computer through their window...

What would i recommend instead of buying this piece of crap? Take your money and use it as toiletpaper then it will have done you better than this game ever will.

There's a major problem with this game at the time of this review being written: There's no executable file. The game doesn't run. If you buy this, you will be throwing your money away on a game that does not, cannot, run.
Someone in the forums linked to an archive on dropbox that is supposed to fix the problem by flat out replacing the game files, but seriously, don't get suckered like I did, just go buy a better game that actually works, like Game Dev Tycoon, or Game Dev Story.

TL;DR: Don't buy, it doesn't work.

One of the most counter-intuitive games I have ever had the misfortune of playing. This game is so raw and unpolished. Some of the screens are still in German. I'm fairly certain there are only 2 voice actors for a multitude of characters. The tutorial is far from user friendly. For a game about games and the industry, you'd think this studio might have taken a moment to consider their audience / customers. Just terrible.

Dopey me, I mistakenly thought this was a sequel to Game Dev Tycoon, which I actually enjoy. Alas, this is a completely unrelated (and FAR inferior) game.

Terrible, terrible interface design; horrible (and buggy) tutorial; actual game play is dull and confusing.

Do not bother purchasing this game, it has no redeeming qualities whatsoever! :-(

If you think this concept sounds interesting, I would seriously recommend you check out Game Dev Tycoon instead. It's a pretty simplistic model of the game development industry, but quite decent for a casual, under-$10 title, and far more interesting with a much better user interface.

AWEFUL, after waiting a day for them to fix the missing executable problem the game is lacking in some necesarry features. such as: the ability to mute sound effects without muting voices, the ability to go directly to an office rather than needing to all over the place, the tutorial doesn't tell you specifically where a place is, you can't change the resolution, you can't customize your apearance, too much back and forthe (why would a starting developer have an office in a seperate building for himself while his programmers and whatnot work in a different building). To name a few problems. This is aweful, Game Dev Tycoon is much more enjoyable.

Game Tycoon is a very unique tycoon game to the point it could be considered a point and click adventure / tycoon game. Nothing is laid out with menus, its all places and locations. You have a university, office plaza, media plaza and your home (which seems pointless). In these locations they are like city streets, you need to scroll your mouse left and right and click on doors. One click will have your player character enter, two clicks will automatically enter. When inside a building, you see a room and need to find what you want to do. It makes the controls needlessly cumbersome. To see how many copies you have in stock, you need to go across town. To see your finances, you need to go back across town. It is crazy.

The game is very click base as if it could be a mobile game, you won't find hot keys or even menus. Right mouse clicking exits you out of an area. Stats and charts need to be found in rooms and areas. Even then, there's no depth. There is no way to see how well games are selling, you just need to hope they sell well that month at the price you've set. You can visit a university magazine stand to find out the most popular games and genres for $4 each time. You can visit a game store in the media plaza to see where your games rank. You can visit an advertising executive to publicize your games, your company and see how you stack compared to the two other companies you're competing against. You can even visit a banker, take out a loan, buy and sell stocks of your company and the other three. Those are nice features, but when you visit the banker and executive, you need to talk with them. Click something to say and listen for them to say it before you can continue. If you dare click on something else it could cause a glitch that will loop the speech if not crash a menu 10 seconds later. It is stunning.

When you play, there is no hand holding. I needed to figure out to visit my office, create a game engine (or license one), then click and drag the 'print out' into my inventory. Then go next door to the development office? Once there, I need to click and drag the 'print out' into the project list. After that, since I had no employees, I had to go to the university and figure out that I needed to click a bulletin board in order to find employees. The hiring system is nice, it shows you the quality in stars, and their tempo to complete the job. You hire programmers, artists and composers. Some you can hire and others that are independent. So they can get better jobs and come back to you when you need them most, but they don't get paid when they're not working. Then its back to the development studio with my employees. I need to click the project, then assign programmers to the engine and click start project.

After you wait a few in game days, weeks or months, its time to take that game engine project, click and drag it back into your inventory, then go next door to your office and make a new game after clicking and dragging the engine into the proper position. Creating a new game project is easy. You'll get to chose things like what languages and what platforms. By platforms I mean, PC, arcade and console. There are no specific consoles. Just those three. Then when that is all 'printed out,' its back over to next door to click and drag the 'print out' from my inventory into the project window. Once there, I need to click on the project, then sift through my employees to assign programmers, artists and composers. The more people I have working, the faster they'll get done. The higher quality they are, the better the game.

From there, you don't just release the game. Once you click and drag the finished project into your inventory of course. Its off to the manufacturing facility where you click on the design table to include everything that will come with your game. By design, I mean pack the box with stuff and raise the manufacturing cost. Shirts, buttons, stickers, black and white instruction manuals, color instructions, an insert. Its all up to you! With some click and dragging. With that done you'll visit the manufacturing machine that will churn out the copies of your game. The more copies, the cheaper they become to manufacture. Click and drag the finished product into the machine. Then start manufacturing! After a few game days, all of the copies will arrive.

Do they just sell themselves? Nope. Time to find a publisher! So you need to visit a publisher's office and select a publishing deal from books on the wall. They all have minimum quality ratings, so your 45% quality game can't be published with a 53% quality deal. There is a punishment for failing to release the game by the allowed time and for your trouble of making a game, you'll get 6% of the profits depending on the deal. Some deals are far better than others.

After that, its back to the factory that has your copies. You need to click on the pallet with the finished copies and click and drag your publishing deal from your inventory into the game's slot and flip the checkmark switch to officially release it! Wasn't that easy? No hand holding at all!

Of course 5 hours into the game, I finally discovered the tutorial was in the campaign, but wasn't marked as a 'tutorial.' I thought it was just another scenario in the campaign. The tutorial explains what to do, but it gets caught on itself and could explain things better, such as flipping through a gaming magazine had me clicking all over before I figured out to click a game title. The voice over will talk over other voice overs. Not just that, but if you go to a different location than you should be in, the tutorial narration will tell you what to do as if you're in the correct place, instead of saying no this is the office, go to the university.

As soon as you get the hang of the 1,000 step process, it becomes an insane juggle of going between locations since there is no menu. Waiting to pan the street to the right or left. Waiting for your character to walk to the building before you realize double clicking enters the door instantly. Even though there's a game speed, that doesn't speed up the character. It doesn't speed up every time I need to hear 'I would like a bank loan,' then hear the banker's rebuttal.

There are visual errors here like text not disappearing when the dialog boxes do. Text overlapping out of windows. Sometimes the ticker PDA doesn't show anything when it should have a message. The PDA (ticker) is nice, it pops up useless information like you need to pay $3,000 for golf clubs or you're having a bad hair day. Its all random things that might as well be Chance cards from Monopoly. The PDA pop up changes the game from fast to slow, which is good, but the problem is that a lot of what the PDA shows is useless moments to make you laugh. You didn't sleep well, because your bed broke. Stealing MP3s is bad. Visit the gametycoon website. Your employees will get sick and will be unable to work for 12 days.

The only way to get a game over is if you go into debt for more than 90 days. You can get loans and sell stock to stay a float, but even on normal, it seems difficult. Your games only make money at the start of every month. You have full control over the price of your games at the factory, but to put publicity into the games, you need to go to a different area down the street.

The game itself is difficult even on normal. Luckily there is an easy mode. To top everything off, it has crashed or permafroze a few times, so you'll need to keep saving frequently, since there is no auto save feature. With all of that being said, there are some interesting elements in the game, but the juggle and struggle of going location to location over and over again is unfun and begging people to not play it. If only there was a menu and no traveling. The time it takes to hear people talk is just too long with no way to skip it.

Game freezes so often. mostly after when developping several games then entering into some buildings.
as others saying, there are too many cons which make me feel like meaningless as to playability.
but before them, devs should refine this game to be playable on today's OS and machine.
though save game became work with newest update at least, the freezing in critical time really irritates me.

but there is very fun elements which other similer game doesn't focus on. game engine, ads, publisher and employment. every one of choice is fatal and might cause a player to ruin from the beginning.

i cant recommend this game for basic problem of freezing, but i have a fun to play.

Info for deaf and hard of hearing people:
No subtitles. I pretty much can't play it. Not sanely anyway.

  • The intro movie looks like it's made in the early 1990s. Think Theme Hospital.
  • There are absolutely no options except for volume levels.
  • Even though you can turn the volume all the way down, there are no subtitles.
  • Tutorials are only spoken. Don't blame me if I don't know how the game works.
  • Steam's Release Date: 11 Feb. 2014. It's probably a decade older than that.
  • Buggy. It asks you to do things you already did and ignores that fact so you can't advance.
  • Buggy^2. Not intuitive, or it simply won't respond to the seemingly correct clicks.
  • Buggy^3. Starting to get convinced that this is secretly a pixel-hunt game.

  • ...
  • Oh wait, maybe one: Trading cards. If you're into those. :P

Game Tycoon 1.5 is little more than a disgracefully bad rip-off of the better known (and generally better all around) Game Dev Tycoon.

This game was apparently released in February 2014, but the laughable 3D graphics would not be out of place in a game fifteen years older. Upon starting the game, you are given a choice of three avatars to choose from, with no customisation whatsoever. After this sequence, and some terrible wooden voice-acting, you are whisked away to a street where you are told to make your avatar walk painfully slowly to your office. And no, there is no way to speed this up.

The game tells you to create a game engine, then gives you almost no advice on how to do so, which leads to lot of trial-and-error clicking in the laughably rough looking interface which looks like something knocked together in 30 seconds on Photoshop. You are then told to walk down the street to the bank, where you borrow money (ask for whatever you like, and the clerk simply hands it over), and then it's off to the "university" to hire some staff (in reality just a hanging noticeboard where you click on people's names). Returning to your office, you click once more through the interface to assign your newly hired staff to work on your engine project. You then wait...and wait...and wait. Turns out that there's no way to speed this up, and there's nothing else to do but stare at the inside of your blocky 3D office.

At this point, I turned the game off, so I don't know if your hardworking crew eer do finish working on that engine in order for you to start working on your game proper. The final irony is that a game supposedly all about making your own games is a terrible game in itself with no thought for it's audience. Who were they aiming for with this game? Game makers themselves? Masochists? Poor saps not realising that they'd bought the wrong game with a similar sounding title and not realising it until it was too late?

On top of its aforementioned problems, there are other glaring flaws; screens untranslated from their original German, and some garbled English phrases that look like they've been through the wringer that is Google Translate. It feels like a game that not only isn't finished, but that's been slapped together with little care or thought, leaving an absolute travesty of a game that should not have been released.

I don't normally write reviews, but this one inspired me to do so. I got the game for free, and actually earned money by selling the steam cards I got for playing it, and I still feel ripped off. Do not pay any money for this "game".

Definitely my pick for the worst game of the year.

Every tedious action that the player is forced to endure could have easily been just a click of a button. For instance walking my character to one office to print a design for an engine, then going to the production office to place the design on the project board could have been just one click of a button.

There is no way to skip to the end of a project while it is in production and the player is forced to sit and watch a clock at it ticks away.

I never judge a game based on graphics or sound, unless of course one of these features does not work properly. During the tutorial a man's voice tells you what to do, but even when you are doing what he is telling you to do he repeats what he said. This does not stop his previous sound file, but instead doubles over it and explodes your ears if you are using headphones. Also while in the game manufacturing place the mans voice is completely drowned out by annoyingly loud industrial sounds. I'm fairly certain there is only one voice actor that does the voice of every single character.

This is not an exaggeration; this game seriously gave me a headache five minutes into it.

If this game weren't:
a crappy version of a much better game
full of terrible voice acting
marked as released yesterday despite clearly being several years old

..........then it would still be pretty dull. But not quite so offensive. Don't buy this game.

Alright, after the initial launch problems were fixed I was looking forward to a nice bit of tycooning in the gamedevelopment industry, boy was I dissapointed. There are some really basic "generic flaws" and then there are the "content flaws".
For the generic flaws the controls are pretty counter-intuitive (Escape always takes you to the main meny, right mouse click escapes from the screen), there is no pause option! For me pause is an important option, I mean even if it wasn't....
The contrast in sounds is horrible, when playing the tutorial you will barely be able to hear the person explain the game due to the background sounds (also the voiceacting is just horrible, I would have rather had no voiceacting at all), besides that the tutorial is just horrendous and not user friendly at all. Also, every notification slows your game down, so when it feels the need to tell me kids threw stuff at my house or that my competitors made a new game it slows my game down again, this is really tedious as the messages are irrelevant to me!

Now the obvious lackluster, depth, there is nothing to be gained here, you can't train your people, you can't invest in anything. The only thing you do is wait and watch the boards while you again click on a "genre & language(s)" to create the concept for you new game. As time progresses you get new technology available but not through any effort of yourself.
Then there is another thing, I need to take a publisher contract to push my games to stores, but for some weird reason I have to print my own discs and keep track of that stock! That is NOT gamedevelopment, that is what the publishers are supposed to do for me.

There is another game like this available on Steam which just blows this title away, I was dumb enough to think this was the sequel, save your money, buy the other title!

I've played some bad games in my 30 years, but this one is special. Tutorial tells you to do something without any explanation as to how, and the guy trying to explain things to you is often overpowered by other sound effects. The game is psuedo translated using EU conventions while speaking english, such as commas in place of periods. It's also very time intensive and makes the fast forward feature almost useless as pointless news reports ("You are a beatiful person, gain 5000 dollars"??) pop up and slow time back down. I don't know if I can properly convey just how bad this game is.

If you're a person that loves horrible games for the novelty of bad games, then yeah, this is perfect, otherwise, Game Dev Tycoon is much better, and alot more fun. Don't buy unless you love bad games.

Gameplay Premise
The premise of the gameplay is simple. To be the best game tycoon. This is a simulator game, so some semblance to the facts are expected.

The tutorial is spoken, there is no subtitle, and there is no explanation on what should be done. For example : You are told to borrow $100k from the bank, but you are not told where the bank is and how to even sign the paper. You are told to manage your developer, and you are not told where is your developer office (turns out, the development office is separate from your personal office). In short, the tutorial is not helpful at all.

The UI
The UI is very bad. There is no tooltips at all. If you hover over something, there won't be any explanation. As UI is related to how information is given out to you, this game is also very bad at that. To access your game quality, you have to go to a certain object. To access your sales number, you have to click on some paper on your table. To access your financial report, you have to click on another paper on your table. There is no collated financial reports, no collated engine/game reports. Some reports have to be accessed outside your personal office, which you must travel to other place just to get a piece of report.

The notion of personal office looks like Airline Tycoon Deluxe, which are a great game. In Airline Tycoon, there are tooltips so that we know what we are going to click. To access the incoming message, just click on the paper organizer in your office. To access your plane facilities, click on the plane model. To access the fuel price and setting, click on the fuel painting on the wall. To access your route, click on the globe. To access your financial report, just a click away. This is very different with Game Tycoon 1.5.

Game Tycoon 1.5 fails to present the information needed with a good manner, information is fragmented. For tycoon games failure to present information is very bad, as those information are the key to success in these kind of games.

The Gameplay
The gameplay is horrid.

There are no clear explanation.
What is the differences between Keyboard controller and Joystick? Japanese language and English language? No explanation at all.

The game is too complex.
Not complex in a good manner. To build a game, you have to create an engine. During the creation of engine, you have to enter the features (like Game Dev Tycoon) though it's unclear which features is better than the others. During the creation of engine you are also able to set how many developers are going to develop the engine. Next, you have to print it and it is stored at your inventory. After that, you have to go to the university, and grab some developers.

After that, you have to go to the developers office (beside your office, they have darts targeting your character) and assign programmers to the project. No problem on this part.
After that, you develop the game, same thing, you have the game "cassette" on your inventory. Then, you have to go to design factory to define how much gimmicks you wanted. Then you go to factory to print out your product. Then to licensing to find a publisher. Then to factory again to sell the game.

The process is believable, but presented in such clunky manner that you will be confused in no time. While a good game will present all of those above steps in a UI that have drop-down menus, this game is not. As outlined above, because information is too fragmented. For example : After printing out your product, you go to publisher. The publisher demands your game have a specific rating. If you have printed your game, you can't know the rating anymore, the rating is known only after the game is developed. These kind of thing is very bad, information should be able to be accessed at all times!

No feedback
While the Game Dev Tycoon provides feedback to the player by giving out review scores, this game did not give any. Review scores are important to give us facts how good is our product. But no dice, no feedback, no nothing. In tycoon games it is important to have feedback. For example, if we are told that our sales drop in such areas, we should know the cause. Bad product? Bad pricing? Bad sales? We must have information. This game lacks those, so the players could not make informed decisions to make something.

Bad Game Structure
No menus. Simply horrid. You can't access functions inside the game, you have to go out to main menu to get that. You can't go to settings, you have to go to main menu to access settings. Not to mention that the game will drop to desktop for a few second if you go to main menu. That is simply unacceptable.

Look and Feel
Simply lacking. The game has some quality in drawing, but very lacking in other aspects. The music is bad.

Final Verdict
I got this game from a bundle, so it is not a bad loss to me.
I think this game is the Big Rigs of tycoon genre.

Choppy graphics, an annoying, repetative and amature voice actor for your advisor/tutor, and an unintiuitive interface mar what is otherwise a fun concept for a game: namely game development. If you want a real game in this genre, you're better off buying "Game dev tycoon."

First of all, it got launched without the exe so the game couldn't launch.

Second, after that got fixed, the game is so riddled with bugs that are game breaking that can't be skipped.

Basically in summary, I've played early access games that were more professional and bug free than this released and already patched to version 1.5 game.

Spectacularly awful game. Needless on-screen avatars that have to be moved from place to place with no way to bypass or speed up the action or dialog. Singularly unintuitive - the interface has the look and feel of your typical European game, too many of which have the same flaw, poor game design.

I paid only $0.27 for this in a recent bundle, but what an unpleasant experience. If you must play one of these games (of which there are 3 that I'm aware of) just stick with Game Dev Tycoon.
