I don't even remember how this junk got into my library. Probably some bundle inclusion. Ugh. Well, I gave it the old college try, because I guess I'm a masochist or something. This game makes you wait, and wait, for no reason. The time management is not fun. The controls are clunky and slow, the music is annoying, the tutorial doesn't make sense. This is just a mess. I couldn't even make it through the tutorial. Stay away at ALL COSTS. -PR0XIDIAN

I wanted to like this game, I really did. I enjoyed the first couple of minutes in the tutorial, but then it froze, and I couldn't get it to close. Finally I figured out I had to lock my computer, then hit the escape key to get my lock screen to show. I was then able to force the game to close. Tried again, hit Career, changed the character and the game froze again, and again, and again. This game is actually unplayable no matter how many times I reinstall it. If the developer would bother fixing this issue, then I would love to try it again. Got it for free through Indie Gala, and it wasn't worth the time it took to redeem it.

I don't recommend this game to anyone, since it's just broken, it crashes a lot, there's so many glitches, and even if the game worked properly, there's not much you can do.

Worst possible tutorial I have ever seen.
I loved Game Dev Tycoon and thought that this will be similar to it but wow..

The tutorial tells you to pick a publishing deal from the given choices.. I picked one. Finished making the game and was sent to packing and to the production of copies. Finished those and then was told to add the publishing deal.

Guess what.. Was told the game is not good enough for the publishing deal.. How can a game be not good enough before it was released and given a rating?? How the hell do you give publishing deals in the tutorial and don't even explain anything about them? Or even explain how to get rating for the game.

Sorry, total crap. At least it gives cards.

Opened game, tried to turn down atrocious music... hmm... sound sliders don't work.

Turned off speakers, started game. Went into bank. Clicked "Pay off my loan".

Stuck there forever with no way to leave bank. AT ALL.

Game Tycoon 1.5 is a game that I can't recommend because:
- the price is too much for it's quality
- it is boring
- it has issues
- the graphics are horrible
- it crashes all the time
- it is a pointless game
- the only good reason to install this game is for the trading cards

This game started of not that bad but that didn't last long Oh no it lasted for 5 minutes.
This game got worse and worse overtime as i gave it a chance to redeem it self it gave me:
- VO's that overlap eachother and character mouth animations that play when there is no sound.
- A crash after getting the broker to talk to me.
- A freeze after changing the audio sliders ( that don't impact audio in the first place)
- A blue screen after forcing it to exit

Even free is to much for this piece of trash.

Your game blows, not even joking. I started up this game 3 different times, closing programs, disabling anti virus. Each time i tried to start the game i would get to the menu, then when i hit play game it claimed my monitor as its own. I tried closing it with task manager on my other monitor, that didn't work, i tried alt tabbing out of it, didn't work, i had to completely logout and log back in to get this "game" to finally close. This happened 3 times. This game is garbage, don't pay for this game, don't take this game for free, don't let someone pay you to boot this up. This game is proof that steam has 0 quality control, because if they did this game would have never been released on steam.

I got this game for free and I feel like I got ripped off. The game hard crashes my computer. I couldn't get past the menu. From what I saw of the menu, the assets looked half-♥♥♥♥♥, unintuitive, and amateur. I would hate myself if I had spent money on this game.
