  • Summary: Ultimately Game Dev Tycoon feels like a polished and very absorbing online flash game. Especially considering I played one once about setting up your own game dev company a while back.  However, for £6.99/$9.99, I have to admit, it’s an addictive little game that eats away at your time.

  • Excerpt: I read about, see, watch, and hear about so many games that there are few games that surprise me. In this day and age of over exposure to media I know many in the gaming community feel the same way. I knew what to expect out of Game Dev Tycoon. I did not expect it to be so engaging.
