One Year Anniversary!

Hey everyone!

It has been a year since release of Game Dev Studio, and wow, what a journey this was! Countless patches have been released, 27 of which have been documented, but a lot more that were simple bugfixes weren't announced. Many features were added to the game (some of which were what the community asked for), many quality of life improvements were added, and many bugs were fixed.

With that said, let's take a look at what the biggest changes were over the course of the year mentioned in the updates:
  • added the ability to take a loan
  • added the 'Comfort' drive affector and objects related to it
  • added the ability to sell engine licenses
  • added MMO project type
  • added Platform Creation and a new campaign 'Console Domination' for this feature
  • added a new tutorial, split up into 3 parts, so that players can easily replay any part they didn't understand fully
  • added female employees
  • added Achievements
  • added Workshop support
  • added Annual Game Awards
  • added sub-genres
  • French and Russian localizations were added
  • German localization by community member Westman was added
  • 118 various bugfixes
  • and a ton of quality-of-life improvements

When I put all the additions in a list like this, it doesn't seem like a lot, but you have to remember that I'm just one person working on this game, and some features bring hours of extra gameplay! All the new gameplay mechanics provide Game Dev Studio with even more depth and longevity, all for the same price that the game launched at!

I would like to thank all the people that were active in the community, suggesting new features, reporting bugs, and generally providing their feedback on all sorts of things. Without you this wouldn't have been possible!

Thanks for reading, and thanks for playing Game Dev Studio!

About This Game

Welcome to your own Game Dev Studio!

How will you run your own offices and ascend to greatness in the gaming industry?


Non-linear progression. Fill the empty spaces in your office with any objects you wish, and when you run out of space, buy a new building to continue expanding!

Find the best employees for your studio. Employees have their skills, attributes, traits, interests, and knowledge on topics.
Create multiple teams, work on multiple game projects at once, or reach for the stars by focusing all your workpower on one game.
Just don't forget that you won't get to keep your employees forever.

Rev up those engines. Make game engines, update them with new tech, and revamp them when the code gets too messy!

Make awesome games. Employees? Check. Game engine? Check. Now it's time to make great games!

Hype it up! Advertise your games through a multitude of ways: invite reviewers for an interview, start a mass advertisement campaign, contact online personalities to create early playthrough videos of your game, hire agencies to shill your game online, and even bribe reviewers!

Show your rivals who's boss of this industry. Your rivals are on the lookout for talented developers just like you are, so get ready to fight off their attempts to lure your employees away with higher salaries. Give them a taste of their own medicine and buy them out when they go under!

Sway the odds of platform manufacturers. Games you release influence the fate of platform manufacturers for which they're made.
Good games will make a platform more attractive to gamers and change its market share for the better.

Never a dull moment. Story mode, four extra campaigns, a freeplay mode, and the ability to randomize various aspects of the game at the beginning of a playthrough make for greater replayability.

Full modding support via Steam Workshop. Every little bit about the game can be changed with mods, even turned into something else entirely if the modder's skill and patience allows them.
