'Game Dev Tycoon' review for Windows - Boston Games | Examiner.com

"Have you ever played a video game and said to yourself, 'I could have made a better game than this!' Well now you can put your money where your mouth is. Maybe not literally, but at least in a simulator that allows you to take the reigns as a game developer and work your way from the ground up." (Game Dev Tycoon, PC) 5/5

Yep its a great game and I like that they mentioned Kairosoft's Game Dev Story as an inspiration to this game, cause if they hadn't it would have been a tremendous rip-off.

Love this title. It was one of the main reasons that made me want Windows 8.

I completely disagree. This game is nowhere near as good as Game Dev Story. Everything is far too impersonal and you can't focus on making a few good games a year, you have to pump out a thousand to keep making new engines. (despite in real life, engines can be adapted). Not only that but if one game sells well it's ridiculously easy (by coincidence/randomly). The gameplay isn't personal like Game Dev Story or Under Development. I like some of the ideas present in it, but there all executed horribly. The game breezes past the golden era of gaming, and takes about an hour or 2 to complete the (whole 30 years).
