Amazing! 6 STARS

This game is art. They should build on to it way more! Smash hit! I'd really like them to add a walking animation. Also add a map and stats of what states and countries that like your game the most!

The Best Game Ever?

I Loved This Game. I played it for hours and it was fun to study different games. I always had a pen and a notebook by my side when I play this game! Best Game Ever!

It could be better

This game is one of the best games I have ever played however it could be better. For example after you r first 10 million hit game you should be able to unlock the produce a publishing deal and make deals with smaller companies.

Great game

Game rev is such a fun game and it just at the right balance of fun and difficult. The game has great potential for repeatability so id definitely say to get this game.

Exceptional Look at Economics in Game Dev

Too often do we find mind numbing games that are monotonous, finger-swiping money-pits. This game is a shining example of a challenging, unique, and useful look at a huge industry. Finished the game with a score over 47,000,000! :)

You will lose track of time.

I found this game to be very addicting, and can be playing this from morning to the next morning. Great replay value and so much fun.

It's addictive

I found this game by chance, tried out the first version and got caught up reading all the little bits of info about the history of videogames, failing and succeeding at creating some of my own. Pretty good pace and no micro-transactions, my type of game.

Fun and Intelligent!

As a long time gamer I couldn't help but smile to all the many (not so subtle) nods to gaming companies and their various consoles. The game's an addictive way to pass the time, and offers some interesting challenges once you get into the swing of how it plays out - that also means plenty of replay value, and there's nothing that makes me happier than getting more bang for my buck! 5/5 Stars Easily!

I want to play the DEMO, but when I open it, and I click for start the game, it push me out!

Nice rip off of Kairosoft's first game, Game dev story.
