all in all a very funny little game. It is informative and entertaining at the same time.
People seemed the had a problem with the executable. But as of now, the game is fully playable.

It is pretty unfair to jugde a game you have not even played.

I bet 90% of the negative reviewers would injoy the game. It is all in all a good addition for the liberary.

Awful game. Tutorial repeats the same crap over and over again without actually providing much in the way of help; you just have to get lucky in a lot of cases. Bugs all over the place. Not even worth the £2 I paid for it. Shocking!

You're better off using the money you spent on this to wipe yourself.

Looking at the screenshots, I thought this was going to be an upgraded version of Game Dev Tycoon. I didn't even bother looking up gameplay videos. Turns out, they badly implement "exploration," which is really just a way to slow down the game and distract from what you're actually trying to do.

The tutorial is more or less useless, with instructions that give you just enough details to get frustrated, but not enough to actually tell you what's going on.

There's a great video on youtube with a title along the lines of "Let's NOT Play Game Tycoon 1.5." It does a pretty good job of explaining why you should avoid this one.

I liked this game, sure it's a bit, well a lot buggy but I find it fun in a calm,relaxing sort of way, I don't think it was worth te money it was orignally but I got for £1.74 which isn't that bad in my opinion.

I made the stupid mistake of getting this game without reading up on it. Luckily it was free, but I'd rather have gotten money just to play this. It's not even worth the slot on the Steam Store. Trust me, you'll thank yourself for not playing this. It's worse than WarZ and that game at least functioned on a technical level. This doesn't.

Don't make my mistake!

This game has way too many bugs and it crashes way too often. So often that I can't even play the game for more than 5 mintues at a time.

The most confusing, god-awful, and yet again, confusing game in the world. It has no claer instructions, and is a rip-off of another game. Talk about a ♥♥♥♥ing waste of money. You are much better off getting Game Dev Tycoon. I couldn't even manufacture my damned games it was so buggy! I would try to click on one thing, and I would walk to my office, WHEN I'M NOWHERE NEAR MY ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ OFFICE! 2/10, somebody fix the ♥♥♥♥ing germans already....
