I bought the game a few months back. Played it for a few hours. Mainly trying to figure out WTF to do.

Fast forward a few months and an upgrade to Windows 10. This game no longer works!!! Hoe do I get a refund?

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.
