Game Dev Tycoon Reviews:

7.4 Total Score
Very Good

A very fun and addictive game, you start as a simple indie dev working in his garage and you have to make the road to become a top AAA company. If you liked Game Dev Story, you're probably going to like this one. It's not a huge evolution from that game, but still adds it's own vision and depth to the concept. Game Dev Tycoon is a cute and witty take on the video game development process. Gives you a feeling on how hard real developing is at the start then you get use to it. This is also a very challenging game, it's one of those games where in order to complete it, you really need to know what you're doing ahead of time. There is a certain level of addiction the game instills in the player, pushing you to continue to develop new titles or create new businesses to try and squeeze out the best review scores ensuring a steady stream of sales which equates to more cash for your little simulated development company.
