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.
