This is edited review. After all most 3 years, and so many phone changes, game dev story is still and will always be in my storage. I couldn't count how many time I have repeated through it, just pure love and admiration from me to you kairosoft,or should I say "karoisoft"?get it?hah. Anyway, it would be nice if there's an update from you guys, not saying regularly or anything, just something that could spice up the game a bit.
Here's the negative that killed my experience. Your only way to make good money in game is to act quickly right from the start, or you'll be stuck doing contracts the whole game. Game licensing costs Sky rocket with each new console release and your contract payments come nowhere close enough to help you get started in the later years.
This game was quite fun, and once you get to hang, it's easy...only if you act and grow quickly in the early game. Lite version has 3 years, I don't think you'll be able to make more than 4 games with that time. The best way to grow quickly is to fill the empty spaces with employees.
This game is very good and has potential to be great! The full paid for game seems little more than double the demo as far as actual playability. But this game is sooo much fun! With no new consoles ever being made after the PS3 knock off, the challenges after making it to that era become negligable at best.. simply a slow grind to get capital to make your own console.. in which you never truly compete with any others. Needs more variety of consoles to make past 64-bit systems as well as more consoles added after the current line up.
Man, I bought this on a whim because I was kinda bored. I spent almost 7 hours in one go! It's so addicting, I love the intricate subtlety of the game industry used within. I follow the industry very close; this is really interesting and possibly revealing about what the thought process is behind some of these companies. I really enjoy it!
It's great, I've completed it at least 3 times. It's time for some new stuff. I dont want to play it anymore. Even if its with better skills its still the same. If you think about putting in some new features I'd like to share some ideas that could bring some changes - may help.
