Running a business needn’t be stressful, full of life-or-death decisions and nail-biting money-management chores. With Game Dev Tycoon, you can start a game company in your garage and see how far it goes.
This game puts you in the shoes of a budding game developer, fresh with ideas and a brand-spanking-new ’80s PC, ready to create the next classic (think Pong or Donkey Kong). Choose a genre, topic, and platform, and then allocate your available resources. Which is more important, pretty graphics or sophisticated gameplay? You get to decide.
Make good choices, and you can hire more staff, move out of the garage into an actual office, and score sweet, lucrative publishing deals.
