I found this really fun game and wanted to share it with you all. It's called Game Dev Tycoon
by Greenheart Games. As you've probably realized it's a simulator game where you take charge of a game dev studio (starting in your garage!). You get to put out games that get reviewed and generate funds for you to keep on developing.
You get to control various things about the type of game you want to make including topics, genres, core features, marketing strategies, and can even enter into deals for contract work or publishing deals. You hire stuff, train them, and put them in charge of various game aspects as you develop.
I'm skipping over some things here to keep the game fresh and surprising when it throws things at you too.
There's a demo available, and it's really cheap to buy (just a few dollars). I give it 2 thumbs and 2 big toes up!
