STAY AWAY!!!
This is a game about making other games. The same concept as Game Dev Tycoon. Before I go on I just want to say that you should get that game instead as it does a MUCH better job.

Cons:
- Extremely slow gameplay.
- Quite buggy.
- Tutorial isn't informative enough.
- The game is really hard to learn without a proper tutorial.
- At launch the .exe file wasn't there so the game wouldn't launch (says a little about the game quality as well as Steam's quality checks).
- No proper options-screen (although your computer should be able to run it considering the horrible graphics).
- Not sure about this one, but I'm pretty sure it's just an old game that's been put up on Steam. I think I read that some places.

Now to the pros:
- There are none

So please, don't buy this horrible game. Not even it's on 99% sale. You will regret it!

This is by far one of the cheapest game ever made.
It wanted to ride the success of Game dev tycoon by publish a game with the same name, but fail miserably on EVERY aspect of the game, from the 5 seconds looped musics to the poor cartoonish graphics not to forget you have to click on anything on your screen to figure out what you can do/open/use.

I CANNOT EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW TO SAVE (press esc make you return to the game home...).
Also bugs, crashes...
This is not even a final game, not even a demo, this resemble more a game which is just been started to be programmed.

If this game wasn't made in bad faith, i'd say this could have a little potential to be a mediocre sim, but the developer(s) just can't do it.

Thank god i spent only 99cent from steal wallet for this...

Look at how long i have played this... SIX MINUTES!!! No game that has ever been released should only be played for SIX MINUTES.
So please do your self a favour NEVER EVER EVER BUY THIS GAME!! This is a discrase to the original ' Game Dev Tycoon'.
This is my final conclusion DO NOT BUY THIS GAME EVER and buy the original Game Dev Tycoon you will enjoy it. DO NOT SPEND THE £6.99 ON THIS GAME!!! DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR £6.99 FOR THIS GAME

If this was made in 1999 i would still be dissapointed. The game sound drowns out the voice instuctions and the save system is dreadful. I couldnt find one thing good or special about this game. DO NOT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
