ok, no one cares what i think, but Greenheart stole the game concept from Kairosoft's Gave Dev Story [link] and does all of their publicity by gimmick. Their game took off when they took on piracy (which was hilarious if it werent a stolen game) and now they are doing this. Stop marketing for these people!
Link to the game
It is always a great game to come back to after a while. Also it and another Kairosoft game is being ported to the Switch
Redeemed it today morning, and played almost for an hour and a half.
This feels truly like a dumbed down version of Game Dev Story
Graphics are great to be honest. An upgrade over GDS, but my phone got a lot heated up during gaming. So, that's a concern.
The game though, felt hollow compared to GDS. Making games isn't much of a budget challenge because you always end up spending low.
Creating hype during start of development of a game, gets substantially reduced when you end the development. Feels like a wastage, and dosen't impact much on the sales.
Also every minute passes, and your fan follow get less. Always. I don't know how this can happen, but unless you advertise your fan following will become less.
Also the genre choices and selections while making a game are less compared to GDS.
Also in terms of interaction, this game offers nothing. In GDS, after development, you used to do Debugging that in turn used to get you points to upgrade your playable characters. There is no such thing here.
Also, in GDS, every once in a while, some employee would ask you to take more risks that may work or fail, and depending upon whether you want to spend the extra bucks, the game development can improve. This was a sweet addition that I missed here.
I really feel that this game could have made more enjoyable, but at the end, GDS felt more lively, fun and much more challenging to play.
Not that game.
You're thinking about Game Dev Tycoon.
The game discussed here is Game Dev Story.
Game Dev Tycoon is an awful clone of Game Dev Story (which is unfortunately not available on PC in English (and not on Linux at all (unless one counts Android))).
And if you don't want to wait.. go play the game they copied! (though Game Dev Tycoon is fun too, but it's a rather blatent copy of Game Dev Story)
I think they mean Game Dev Story.
Game Dev Tycoon is the Steam copy of Game Dev Story
There's a great game dev on android who only makes management sims.
Their best game is game dev story. Where you manage a development studio. Designing games and even consoles.
They have countless others. Managing malls, tennis clubs, airports, etc.
OP is talking about this game released by a Japanese studio Kairosoft on the Android platform Game Dev Story.
Strategy, Simulator, Casual.
Any of these three, I believe.
I liked Game Dev Story.
You may also like AdVenture Capitalist.
Game Dev Story.
You manage a company from the ground up and make video games. Simple but complex. Addictive.
They have a free version too, so try that first if not convinced. Also the developer makes a ton of other manager/ simulation mobile games. Like malls, trains, airports, manga, feudal towns, racing, tennis, etc. Look through their other stuff.
Game Dev Story is fairly popular.
As is Grand Prix Story
I personally like their town management games though, like Dungeon Village.
Game Dev Story ist ein unterhaltsames Pixel Aufbauspiel bei dem man ein Gamedevelopment Studio Managed. Das Spiel läuft komplett offline, man muss keine Items einsammeln, es gibt keinen kaufbaren Content (abgesehen vom Spiel selber) und es ist komplett zwang frei (speichern und beenden jeder Zeit möglich). Es ist kein Spiel das dich Monate Lang fesseln wird, aber 2-3 Play-throughs macht es definitiv Spaß. Habe es gerade nach einem Jahr wieder ausgekramt und es hat mich wieder total gepackt. GDS ist sein Geld definitiv wert.

A bit of their description on play store:
"Manage your own game company and try to create a million-selling game in this unique simulation..."
You mean the original Game Dev Story by Kairosoft? Been on Android for ages.
Or did you mean that silly remake people mistakenly seem to think was an original idea?
My favourite Android game of all time is Game Dev Story. I started playing it in 2013 and have been playing it ever since.
Kairosoft has many other great games for Android too.
Never played this but the idea reminds me of Game Dev Story. Might give that a try, they have a free version so you can test it out as well.
Game Dev Story by Kairosoft. It is a banger and even has a demo so you can try it first.
The company that make it have lots of other similar games that are also pretty good
