Incredibly addicting

I have to have at least 100+ hours on this game... It's addicting and you should definitely support the developers by buying it.

Honestly this game is amazing! It takes a little to get off the ground when you first start, but I liked the challenge. Once you start making hit games its a very satisfying feeling. Definitely a 10/10!

Great Game! But...

Very repetitive. Like Star Games says "I can play it for days" but there should be way more to this game than just 42 years of video games. Maybe a patch is in order!

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 create games such as this one, free or for a price.

Loved it

I love games like this and this one having such up to date systems that you're developing games for makes all more worth it

This is one of the best games ever. You can never really tell when your games will be good or if your games will be horrible, but that is the best part. Trying to find out what works for different sorts of genres and topics. Best game ever!!!

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
