Elizabeth Burnette of Vivid Gamer writes: "It’s easy for gamers to proclaim that they could develop better games than some of the developers out there. But it’s not as simple as just choosing which genre and console to go with. It takes time, money, and a bit of luck to produce a highly popular title. Not to mention the need for talented employees. CIRCLE Entertainment’s Publisher Dream isn’t the first game to offer gamers to chance to prove that they have what it takes to create a best-selling game. However, it is the only one available in Nintendo’s eShop."
