About This Game

Game Director Story is an unflinching and satirical look behind-the-scenes at how big-budget AAA games are made. Based on first-hand accounts by industry veterans, Players will experience the emotional roller coaster of guiding a team through the agonizing decisions and compromises needed to ship a game.

You will take on the role of a newly hired Game Director in this character-driven narrative experience, responsible for balancing your relationship with your team, publisher, press, influencers, and fans.

Decide how you want to handle real industry situations like crunch, technical debt, inclusivity, micro-transactions, sexism, exclusives and more, and be prepared to deal with the impact of your decisions on your team and the game.



  • Based on real-life scenarios
Based on real events contributed by veteran game developers, players will experience the emotional roller-coaster of game development. Experience all phases of development, making difficult decisions while guiding your team to the euphoric finish line of shipping a game.

  • Balance competing relationships.
Maintain critical relationships and the frequently conflicting interests of your team, your publisher, the press, and fans, all while preserving your vision and staying on budget.



  • Characters with heart and soul.
Get to know your team members through their stories and help them to grow as a professional or overcome personal challenges.

  • Sit in on a Team Chat to check in on your colleagues
Sit in on the daily Team Chat to get a sense of how your team is doing, what they’re concerned about, and how they feel about your decisions.



  • Deal with unexpected and game altering obstacles.
Live through iconic industry challenges or situations that can occur during development like “Publisher requests a last minute E3 presence”.

  • Live with the consequences of your choices
With the clock ticking, choose the decisions you believe are important, and live with the consequences on your game and the team.



  • Real, but humorous.
While GDS tackles real industry challenges, a healthy dose of humor and satire keeps things light and entertaining, while handling difficult topics in an approachable way.
