Total UI overhaul mod "TAG" goes v1.0



The first total UI overhaul mod for Game Dev Tycoon called "TAG Mod" is now fully released.

All the way back in July 2014, a small group called Throw Away Games (short TAG, hence the mod name) teased the mod on our forums with some impressive mockups. Since then they have changed their name to Bellwood Studios but kept working on the mod year after year.

The result is nothing short of impressive.



TAG Mod not only gives Game Dev Tycoon a fresh look but also introduces some neat convenience features such as the ability to generate a game report from the sales UI, or the super-charged game history screen showing you how you set your sliders on your past games and which engines you used.

That's not all though, there's lots more to discover so head over to the mod page and try it out yourself:

The folks over at Bellwood Studios are also working on their own game, if you are curious what the talented team is up to, check out their discord link on the mod page.

Until next time.
