Game Dev Tycoon: Soon to Release on Steam

Game Dev Tycoon set to release on Steam, August 29th. A great business simulation game, made for any game lover and aspiring developer.

There's this wonderful management simulation game that the developers at Greenheart Games have come up with. As in its title, Game Dev Tycoon, it's what you would expect; a tycoon game. It's been available for a while on their site for the small price of $7.99. Don't worry to those of you who purchased it earlier like I did, they will distribute Steam keys to existing customers when it's released later this month on August 29th.

Why I'm excited for this Steam-y Steam Release

As many know, I'm really into management games, and this game is fantastic. Not only do you start out in the 80s developing games out of a garage, you get to build your own gaming company. Being a Business major, this business simulation game hits my major right on the spot. Not to mention, you design games - in a video game! What could be better?

If you think you're the most bad-ass gamer, then I suggest you take a look into this game. Not only is it intriguing, but it's challenging. You get to develop games with different genres, features, platforms, and investments. You'd think you would be savvy at this, being an avid gamer, but you would be mistaken.

If you think you got what it takes to become the biggest and baddest gaming developer, check it out. I'll be posting my official review about it in the near future and I'd love to compare.

To those who have the game, comment and give me your story about your experience, and for those who haven't played it check it out on Steam August 29th. Plus, it's on sale for 20% off until September 5th, making it only $7.99 compared to the original price of $9.99.

    I really wish that they are gonna add something more for this game... Don't get me wrong I really like this game but I think they could add something more to it :P

    Maybe a cool thing to add would be campaigns or challenges. As said, I haven't played it fully but maybe if they had more things like that it would be better.

    I will be checking this game out very soon I hope! :D Like, once I have money again...

    I'm not much for management-style games but how am I to resist a game where I get to make my own games?! I'm quite excited about getting the game.

    When the time is right, it's definitely worth the cash! It's a bit more on Steam than what the developers were selling it at, but still worth it!

    I really enjoy this game too. I've played it enough I wouldn't mind some updates, but in the same hand I don't know what you can change! It's all pretty straightforward.

    Yeah, I've played a little bit of it. Not enough to do a full review yet, but enough to get the feel of it. Updates seem a bit fishy to me, since I'd be afraid of what they'd update. Games great as-is, seems difficult to find an improvement.

    I love everything that this game has done! That's including how they duped those downloading the game illegally and in the end you end up losing because you've lost too much money from illegal downloads. Just so great!

    It was very genius of them to do that. I give them so much credit!
