Loved the game!

I absolutely enjoyed the game! It was fun, interactive, and really offered a challenge. I did fail a few times, especially in the Lite version, but I eventually finished the game and will continue to play it! I enjoy the game mostly because I have high hopes of entering the Game Industry at some point in my life. #GameDevTycoon

Flash Back!

Love the details and the history. I do wish that it would move a little slower so more research could be done.

Very Impressive

After playing the Demo, which I do recommend if you are thinking of buying this game, I wanted to keep on playing. I have never felt so satisfied yet addicted to any game before this one. I don't regret spending those eight dollars because this game is truly amazing. This game has rarely lagged on my computer, and only when there were about twenty things happening at once. It's even fun to watch as your game is created. This game is delightfully fast-paced yet still requires you to think about certain decisions. Once again, I don't regret spending those eight dollars on this game. Eight dollars may sound like a lot, but for this game, it is an extremely fair price. I honestly hope the developers of this game continue to games such as this one, free or for a price.

Great Game

I played a similar game on my phone several years ago. This game is very interactive, and entertaining. I can easily spend several hours playing, and not get bored. Great job!

Great Game, Needs Optimization

Game is great but needs to be more optimized for low ram devices. Runs acceptably on Nextbook 10.1. Has slowdown in text fields and on option to turn off filtering on stuff would probably help. I noticed text is fast the slows when a filter sort of thing comes in.
