'Addicting' is an understatement!

I was a little bit skeptical when a number of reviews labeled Game Dev Story as “addictive”. Surely no game can be THAT addictive. Boy, was I so wrong. Game Dev Story will literally devour whatever time you have for your friends, family, and work. Right off the bat, I should tell you to stop reading this review and click on the “Buy App” button. Just make sure you bid most of your time farewell. On the other hand, if you insist on reading, I can tell you that Game Dev Story, as the title would suggest, is about setting up your own game company. You begin in a small office with only two employees. Given that, you are able to take contractual jobs and watch your employees as they work their way to finish before the deadline. When you have enough money, you can start making your own games by choosing its genre, theme, the people who would work for it, and even give the game a custom name! If you make it far enough, you'll even be able to make your own consoles or handhelds! There's just simply so much more than what I mentioned, and seeing money just rolling in and continuing to make games for your audience is just so gratifying! Seriously, if I were asked to bring three games to a deserted island, this would be one of them.

Surprisingly Addictive...

This game is absolutely absorbing. The addictive element is the "one-more-turn before I stop" gameplay. Before you know it, an hour has passed by after your "one-more-turn". Simple sim mechanics and really fun. I hope the developers still intend to support/update this game. Here are my suggestions for improving the look of the game: Retina graphics/resolution. Ability to skip/fast-forward the "boost" sequences. More office "styles" per office size and being able to pick one style before moving to a bigger office. Variety of backgrounds/looks for GameDex, Game Awards, and Console Announcements. Thanks for this great game and hope you will make it even more awesome...
