This is fun, with very few issues, and is well worth your time.

On sale for $3.99 on Steam!

I can't believe I haven't written about this game yet! I've put in over 20 hours and really enjoyed it.

I don't want this post to be too long, as the sale isn't going on long, but the game is definitely worth this price.

You create a start up video game company, starting back in the 80's. You have a few different options when you start, 4 different topics (you start with 4 different topics. Anything from Ninja to Transport to Zombies to Hacking), and 5 genres (Action, Adventure, RPG, Simulation and Strategy). Then you balance different aspects of the game based on the topic and genre (Story/Gameplay/Sound/AI/etc).

As you progress through the game you research more technologies to make bigger and better games, even hiring employees to develop games with you.

It's a really unique and enjoyable game. I definitely recommend it during this sale!

I picked it up based on your review, thanks. Love light little games, easy to play at lunch at work or my laptop. I saw there's an andoid app to for it, but it didn't seem as good...

Game Dev Tycoon is a lot of fun and runs well on my Mac. It's a nice sort of "pick up and play" whenever kind of game.

Hey yeah, I played that game for a few hours awhile back and I am not ruling out picking it up again. It's quite fun.
