Game Dev Tycoon is a strategy and management game that, following the lead of Game Dev Story (available on iOS and Android), lets you create you own video game development company, taking it from your basement to the pinnacle of the world of electronic entertainment.
Your adventure actually does begin in the basement of your character’s house. From there you start developing your first games. As you get more and more successful you’ll climb in the ranks until you have your own office where you work with lots of other employees.
When you start developing your game you’ll have to choose a genre and topic. Choose a popular combo, like an RPG set in medieval times, or a stranger mix, like a sports game set in the future. No matter how you do it you’ll have lots of options to choose from throughout the development process.
Once you’ve finished your game everything will be up to the critics, who decide whether it gets more or fewer points depending on how well everything came out. This score, in part, determine how many games you sell – and, of course, more sales means more money.
Game Dev Tycoon is a strategy and management game that’s mainly geared toward the video game lovers around the globe. You’ll find lots of references, winks, and nods to the world of gaming. If you’re not familiar with this universe, though, you’ll probably miss out on some of the game’s charm.
