This game puts a tear in my eye.

Let me elaborate on that. This was the first PC game I probably ever played, and it's the same if not better than it was all those years ago. I still remember the club we had in elementary school for this game, I was always on top! Anyways, down to the review.

Extreme control over everything
Renameable games (Best Part)
Several locations
Hours of original gameplay and story development
Awesome perks and worker randomization
Cool easter eggs regarding famous game devs

All other companies have the trump card in the awards (Almost impossible to win them all)

That's really all I have to say, and do not doubt my hour count or date of purchase, because I've been playing this long before it came out on steam. I would definitely reccomend it if you enjoy strategy games, or just time wasters!

Over all Game Corp DX is lacking.
It has a number of decent ideas like designing the layout of your Game Cop Office but that part is mostly meaningless other then the fact that its required for expanding.

Honestly the game just feels like one long tutorial, and then you get to the end, it turns out that's all there is.
If you are looking for a decent Game studio sim, look else where.
If you are looking for a cheap game to mildly interest you for maybe 2 hours, this might be the game for you.

Well to make it short: it is a great game but it takes only about 3 hours to complete the story and that's only cause I mainly watched tv while playing, so it isn't quite a game for longtime amusement.

Really I want to leave a "middling" review but Steam makes me choose thumbs up or thumbs down so there you have it,

The tutorial to start with is very good, and the first couple of hours while you learn the mechanics and try to find the right balance. However, once you get past the early game you find that you want to specialise all of your workers to get the best quality games. Then it just becomes a game of throwing as close to the right number of each skill at each project and sitting there with time on the fastest setting until it's done. Some of the later game mechanics aren't covered in the tutorial though, and you can only find them by going into build mode and placing down items you don't know anything about to see what they do.

You have to lay out your studio, but the space you have to build it in is so small, you pretty much end up with every square having something on it by the time you max out your team. This doesn't leave you with many options for being creative with your layouts.

I've not played the challenge mode yet, the campaign mode that you play to unlock it is essentially a massive tutorial. It might hold my interest for another few hours, but in all likelihood I'm just going to play another game, this one has lost it's appeal for me.

If you're going to buy this game, buy it in a sale for a price where you think it's worth buying something which will only really keep you entertained for an afternoon.

Purely mediocre. The developers left it alone. Though the gameplay is fun, you'll probably spend about 5-10 hours and thats it.

"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!

#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.


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.


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


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)



+ 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


- 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.


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.

Game Corp DX, a game where you try to start a successful developing company and work to improve your employees and their output.

Gameplay: 3/3
I was pretty surprised how much I enjoyed this game once I got going. It's pretty fast paced if you use the speed-up buttons. Sometimes things can get pretty chaotic, however, I never felt like I would lose the game (or too much money) if I missed anything.

Gameplay Mechanics: 2/3
Mostly, I never had any issues with the controls. Build mode however was very glitchy and frustrating at times. You don't have to use that mode too often though.

Music/Sound: 1/3
Some people may like it, but I turned it off and just listened to something else while playing it. Not only that, but the constant keyboard tapping could drive any sane person up the wall.

Story/Plot: 3/3
Who hasn't, at least in the Steam community, wished they could develop games and run a company? I was able to live vicariously through these little guys.

It was a nice, light-hearted game and fun to play through. Give it a shot!
