AWESOME but plz add more things!!!!!!

Alright, first off. It's an Awesome game!!!! I now have more respect for game creators and daaannnnngggg competition is tough. I think that's how you say it right? XD anyway you should add employee personalities because it's kinda boring and what's the point of firing them? Besides to get a better employee. An example of it would be like an employee is a "bully" and yelling others and things like that. It makes a whole new purpose in firing them which makes you pay attention to your employees more. 2- You should add character/ CPU interactions just to make it real ish. It would be cool if u did add it :D. 3- at the end of the game, why don't you make up more consoles? Your able to progress more and be able to generate ideas to new gamers and inventors and maybe invent a similar model and console like that. If you keep doing that, you could evolve the company to the office place in a 3/4 floor buildings and move the research lab thing and the console builder below it and more floors of your company above it. 4- speaking of research lab, you should add more research topics because after the grid and MMO, it's basically conventions and more conventions. 5- speaking of conventions you should get something for being top in the 3G , or G3 idk. I know it's still an early game (I think) and your maybe adding more things. So these are the things I suggest you to add :D Thx!!! Ps. The Game Is AMAZING!!!!

This game is AMAZING! It really shows you how games are developed. In addition to that, the creativity options in this game are amazing. Whenever you make a good game you are rewarded which really makes you feel like you accomplished something. However, a bad game penalizes you in a very user friendly way. It shows you what you did wrong so that you can improve it later. You may lose money and a few fans but nothing a good game wouldn’t fix. This game is extremely balanced and for those people who think the game is short and easy, there is a piracy mode which is EXTREMELY difficult and will make veterans of the game think outside the box. Overall this game is extremely good and can be replayed over and over again. As I’m writing this review I have 10 companies fully finished and I’m working on my 11th and I haven’t gotten bored once. The achievements in the game also give people another thing to do on top of the countless of things to be explored in the game from Easter eggs, to game combinations and research. This game is countless months of fun for a day’s work. And to top it all off, there are no in app purchases and ads! Something that not many games can say. This game is definitely worth it and I thank the developers for making a game that I have enjoyed for months on end.

I absolutely love this game

This is everything I have been looking for in a game in which you have to run a business. I love that I get frustrated when a game doesn’t do well or get really excited when I get the ratings and profit I want, it’s because of that, that I have been able to play to for hours on end. But now I want more and I have ideas. My one concern is that when I opened my hardware lab there were a lot of options for consoles but now I only have 2 options and there both cubes, one white and one black. I have a lot of money saved up so I don’t think it’s anything about that but I am curious as to why there was once a big selection, and now only 2.

I would also love a feature where we can interact with the businesses of other players too. Maybe being able to partner with companies, invest in them, buy hardware or even license hardware and game engines, that would be very cool. Also I think if at a certain point, like maybe when player generates enough money and gets a feel for the game, what works and doesn’t, there should a feature that allows players to start teams, like the graphics team, the dialogues team and so on, I feel like that would be a good way to continue growing.
