Game Corp DX is fun, and I have invested quite a few hours into it. That does not make it a great game. It is by no means original (Game Dev Tycoon probably inspired a lot of this game), nor has it much depth. In addition, the game is quite linear and once you've completed it once, there really is nothing new for you to experience. You can try and make your studio more efficient, but you're not really achieving anything you haven't already. In spite of this, it is still a rather entertaining timewaster and is a nice way to spend a few hours relaxing.

The game has rubbish graphics and limited options, though better value than Game Dev Tycoon (if only because it's much cheaper).

The game is much easier than GDT and it's impossible to fail (where I have failed in GDT several times).
While it's not fun to fail, the way the design points etc rack up in GDT is more fun, though the calculations required to steadily increase game score and ensure which is highest out of tech and design in GDT are not fun so Came Corp DX wins here.

Overall, GDT has more charm and more depth but is also more technical and following the wiki to advance perfectly sucks the fun out of the game.

GCDX on the other hand was much simpler and more fun, but also a bit boring as there were not enough options.

I would say that they both rank about the same with positives and negatives, but GCDX wins out because it's much cheaper. However, I can't recommend a game simply because it's cheap so I don't recommend either of them.

Game Dev Story on Android is fun though! ^_^

The achievement telling you you've just earned your billionth dollar is Doctor Evil. Nuff said.
Moreover, the game is great and very entertaining with a lot of easter eggs. Definitely worth it!

10/10 would plagiarize every known game in existance again.

Even though i haven't played it a lot, I can say that this game is just awesome! It's really fun, but frustrating sometimes. You have to plan your moves and lay out your company building in the most efficient way. But one thing: my Laptop freezes somtimes when I try to start the game! :( A good game and worth the money!

Not very deep and small scale, but for this price far more than you would expect.
Better than Game Dev Tycoon.

I had some fun while playing this game, but it is quite short. It does abide by my 1$/hour of gameplay rule, but I feel like a management game shouldn't last only four hours. This is the amount of time that it took me to get every achievements and max out every single employee. I recommend this game to people that like management games, but not anyone else. This game is quite simple and doesn't have a lot of content, so it is better to wait for a sale or take the Infinite Loop Management bundle that comes with Blueprint Corp, which is a way better management game than this one.

Oh, and this game has cards, for the interested.

3/5, wait for a sale and/or buy the bundle.

"Reveiw during Early Access"

I beat the game after about 6.7 hours of game play, but I feel I would replay it again a few times.
I really do like the game, it was a blast for me. Well worth the low price they ask.
I'm going to focus on the negative, since I love everything else about the game.
I'm not focusing on the negative because it's a bad game, but because if these areas were improved on, the game would be even better than it already is!

Cons:
#1, There's not many building options, a plant and a statue for decoration, ETC
#2, Each project is stuck to a fixed number of team member, like micro being 2, instead of "minimum required"
I would like to take my extra workers not doing anything and tell them to work on a project.
Say I have 3 workers, I'm 1 short of making a small game, I can't tell him to work on the micro game with the other 2 guys. In my opinion, it should be a minimum requirement on how many staff work on the game.
If I make a large game, it would just make sense that every single time I'm not stuck to exactly 20 staff members, I should be able to throw on another 10, to speed things up.
#3, You're stuck at a max of 50 workers, I'd like to have more
#4, You're stuck at working on a maximum of 5 projects at a time, no way to upgrade or change this.
#5, Fullscreen was not working (though I'm sure this will be fixed)
#6, The bar at the top was way too small, I had issues seeing various things on the screen, and I don't need glasses
#7, When a worker had nothing left to do on a project, he just sleeps and you can't have him do anything else until the project is done, not even train him!
#8, When you move an object and it checks which tiles are free, it thinks where it previously was is not free tiles.
For example, if I move an object 4 tiles big, and I want to move it 1 tile to the left, I need to move it to another spot at least 2 tiles away, then back to the spot I actually want it, due to it thinking its own spot isn't free because "Hey, I can't move there, I'm in the way!"

Those were the biggest issues for me, not issues that ruin the game, but I feel in my opinion if they were adressed then the game would be so much better!

Thank you devs for the really cool game!

Early Access Review
Posted: September 6, 2015
Game Corp DX

Game Corp DX is a interesting indie simulator where you create your own gaming company. I will add a TL;DR at the end.

Gameplay

This game seems to be a mix of Prison Architect and Game Dev Tycoon as you play through it. You start out by doing the obvious and naming your company, then you hire workers, start making crappy games, make slightly better games, make great games, and so on. You set your workers into 4 categories to work within for a game (Art, Sound, Code, and Writing) and each game requires more or less of each of these. The building capabilities seem to be limited and the options are decent. The game is fun but the objectives do not catch the eye (took me a while to notice them), no option to pause time so you can set up a game or look around, and the date is only seen if you mouse over the clock. I feel like there is a clear lack of customazation to your game studio. I also noticed that as I name a game, the CPU studios have longer names than I am even allowed for my games.

Graphics/Sound

The Graphics are smooth and overall polished. The music was suprisingly good and I was able to enjoy it.

Suggestions

These are my suggestion for the game which I feel would improve the current state. Please remember these are my personal opinions.

- More customization to the building
- Ability to hold down mouse and multi-place (like with walls)
- Date being shown in the top right and being visible
- Objective being more highlighted
- Ability to choose your aimed audience for the game (child, baby, adult, teenager, etc)

Pros/Cons

Pros

+ Cheap
+ Music is nice
+ Overall enjoyable with gameplay
+ Triple-speed option
+ Critics are funny
+ Each game genre requires different amount of each skill
+ Award ceremonies

Cons

- No building customization (from what I see so far)
- Character limit for game naming is not that long
- Date is not shown normally unless you mouse over clock
- Objectives do not pop out
- No real perk/ punishment depending on who you hire.
- Can get repetitive
- No pause option that allows you to take your time deciding on a game
- No real depth
- Game just stops selling after 1 year

Final Thoughts

Overall I played this game and I didn't like it that much. There is no customization for your studio which I feel harms the game significantly. The music was nice and the concept is good but, it is really rought. I am sad to hear that it is 90% complete as it does not feel near that level of completion. There are a lot of things that just pick at you when playing (date only visible when you mouse over clock, no pause option while creating your game, objective is kinda annoying to see, etc.). The game simply feels unfinished to me.

TL;DR

Game Corp DX is a newly released indie simulator where you own a gaming studio. You create games, hire workers, and get hated on by critics. Overall this game is nice, but still lacks depth and customization along with other things. The game is still in the rough and I would encourage the dev to hold back on it's out of Early Acess release (october). It's got potential, but still has a ways to go. If you have the 3$ maybe you want to buy it, maybe you want a candy bar. So far the game seems far from complete and it saddens me to see that it is apparently 90% complete. In it's current state I can't say it is horrible, but I can't say it's good either.

A really shallow game studio management game.

Here's the how to win strat:
Get 4 employees as soon as possible. Buy a few training computers and train each employee in 1 of 4 specializations:
Code, art, sound, or writing

Have them make micro size games that only require 2 employees. Make sure you select genres that are currently popular and assign the correct staff to the project. After they make around 3-4 games, they'll be maxed out in their specialization. Start making small games that require 4 staff and you'll get a 5 star rating every single time. Rinse and repeat the same strategy over and over again as you expand your studio to develop medium and large size games.

There is no difficulty, there is no challenge, and the whole game is just very shallow overall.

Yes I know it's only $4 (currently $2.69 on sale) and I don't mean to sound hard on the devs but Game Dev Tycoon is better in every single way and is frequently on sale for $5. There isn't any reason to play this when its alternative is vastly superior.

Oftentimes you'll see games on the Steam Store, with reviews saying things like "I wish there was a 'Mixed' rating for steam reviews, but I'll just have to say (yes/no)"
Well, this is one of those reviews.

GameCorp DX is a rerelease of a flash game you can find on ArmorGames. If you don't want to fork up the money for this, then go play that - this isn't much different. The graphics are the EXACT same, several features have been locked until later, and the creators still have no idea how to spell "ceremony". There are only a few new genres, the employees now have "personalities" (i.e they need to eat more often, almost all of them are negative), and you can finally pause the game and speed up those agonizingly long award ceremonies.

I was confused at first by the lack of a proper UI. I saw the buttons on the bottom but I had to manually count all my employees, I later noticed there was a centimeter-tall transparent bar at the top of the screen that had the information.
Playing the game, I had a few issues. Mostly with the edge-scrolling - I'd alt+tab out of the game (because even in windowed mode, the game tries to keep its custom cursor outside of the game and prevents you from doing any OS things) and come back to find that the view was all the way in the corner. Apparently it edge-scrolls when the window isn't even maximized, so I just turned off edge scrolling. The music is a bit obnoxious and loops endlessly (just remembered the company's name is Endless Loop). Workshop integration sounds great until you realize that the only customizable parts of the game are the employee's faces and studio icons. Not that big of a deal but I was expecting custom genres or at least different items.

Overall, the game - just like its original Flash game, is repetitive and lacking content. Absolutely nothing has changed in the way of graphics, it's a bit buggy, and feels unfinished, even for a game that just came out of Early Access. I don't like giving bad reviews, especially when it comes to simulation games, but this just isn't worth the price. Most of the positive reviews are sarcastic, but I wanted to provide some detail as to what exactly the game has in the way of content.
Thank you.

Well worth the two dollars, but falls short in lots of areas. You don't create games for any specific device, you just make games, and you can only assign staff to projects in even numbers and still yet the increments are; 2,4,10, and 20. You can't assign any more or any less staff to projects. It's still pretty enjoyable and the office building is fun, but there are only about 10 total objects to place. The concept is unique, even with other game dev sim-type games, but the execution is sub-par. I recommend the game on price alone, but any higher and it's just not worth it.
