Game Dev Tycoon is a casual game dev simulator where players are tasked with building a gaming empire from humble beginnings all the way to a game dev mogul.
The gameplay consists of point and click interface where players use fine grained controls to research and develop video games to slowly build an empire through incremental upgrades.
Pro Intuitively build your own game dev empire
Run a game studio from humble beginnings in a garage all the way to being a major player in the industry. This is done through slowly introducing new elements of gameplay to the user in an intuitive manner which is done through several stages such as funding, management and development.
Con Feedback is only black or white
Unlike actual game development where feedback is nuanced and fine grained the feedback in the game is only black or white by being only good or bad feedback. This makes for no real insight as to what a game may do good or bad, which can leave the player guessing as to what should be focused on to succeed.
