I used to enjoy this game when I bought it, now it's been about 3-4 months since I've played it.
In about 6+ months there is NO patches to fix bugs, and these bugs can lead up to crash and game not saving.

As stated 6+ months ago and still no patch, I would not recommend buying this title.
Current state, even though it is a full release, it is not even in a polished beta stage.

Project is dead.

DO NOT BUY!

GamersGoMakers is a game that allows you, the player, to hop into the shoes of a company where you develop games of varying platforms and genres.

What caught my eye to buy this was another game, a similar game, its predecessor 'Game Dev Tycoon'. I really enjoyed what the game had to offer at such an early stage it even made me quite hyped and have myself question 'What type of updates and content will come in the future?' - the fabled hype got crushed the moment the Developer went MIA and no updates, patches, bugfixes or DLC of any kind have been released or discussed about.

The game is sadly deserted and doesn't deserve your money nor would it deserve my money but I can't very well refund it.

0/10 - just play Game Dev Tycoon with Mods.

Good game. These simulators are great but they need to be explored more. I would pay more for more content easily. One thig i want in this game or games like it is the ability to start out with a retro console. I want to compete in the early years with sega and nintendo consoles. More fictional "next gen" consoles would also be cool. In this game you can customize the look of the box art for game cartriges. Customization is the key to make these games fun. What does your game look like, what does your console look like, ect. Ability to effect the game economy is also important. Lets say my retro console is so good that i put Nintendo out of buisness. Lets say Sega makes it past the Dreamcast and becomes top dog in the console industry. What if Atari kept going? What if the X-box failed? All of this should be listed in a options menu that essentialy sets the coure for the game session. I think you shoul be able to start in 1978 and make simple games for Arcades. The sound track to this game is amazing. However it could benifit from DLC adding more content.

This game is a ♥♥♥♥ing ripoff of other and better games ... Also the game is really bugged and not at all polished, and it seems to have been abandoned so don't waste your money on this ♥♥♥♥ go check out Game Dev Tycoon instead, coz it's the EXACT SAME ♥♥♥♥ING GAME but not ♥♥♥♥♥♥ as ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ ... ♥♥♥♥!

Don't play, even for free!
