All about game Combinations, unlocks and achievements
In Game Dev Tycoon, you can start your game developing adventure easily, create games your way and become a great leader of a game company. Avoid bankrupt, build a top talent team, get more fans and sells! After this guide, you will save lots of time, enjoy the fun part of the game, avoid some unnecessary failure.
Game dev Tycoon story starts out in a garage. You have to create your character and your company name and eventually you have to start out in the 80s. I think it's about the 80s and you have 30 years of time each few dots you see in the upper right corner. One week will pass and you cannot speed up the game or slow down. You can pause it by opening the menus but other than that you cannot do any pause or speed up things.
So you have 30 years of time to do the best to develop a gaming company and turn as you can see you start out in a little basement you go for higher and higher stuff like offices and you get your own employees and stuff like that. But that is not all. The game itself is about making games and making games. In a simulation game of course you don't have to program anything the character is going to do it for you. So they have several sliders you have to adjust very well once I can show you the game play as several sliders. You have to adjust to go for topics and stuff like that. So you are sitting in your basement, you're programming games, you're trying to make a good game.
You do research create your own engines. Eventually you can go into a bigger building. You hire employees, you do more research on them create bigger games. You research more and eventually you can create like your own steam basically you get income from that. You try to research animates what our animates you make your own animates expansion packs you pull a full E.A. on the game. Last but not least you are developing your own console so this brings you through 30 years of gaming history.
You start out with particulary interesting choices which are only the Commodore 64 and the P.C. both of them. Well the P.C. is not renamed but all like every other console in the game is renamed the Commodore 64 is called the G 64 instead of Playstation you have played system the Gameboy is called Game ling and not sure if they did that for a legal reason and reasons but I like him so that is pretty radical right there. So yeah you do your gaming company and it's just a very interesting thing to see consoles come and go.

So yeah you do your gaming company and it's just a very interesting thing to see consoles come and go.
They actually put it in as it happened in history so you'll have the second massive system arrive, then all of a sudden Nintendo or I think of Tendo or whatever it's called here will announce, hey guys we're having this super grannys and all of a sudden the NHS will be pulled off the market and your games will not be sold anymore. Ff you have running games still on it. So it is kind of a gamble if you know. If you don't know what you're doing the whole game is very mathematical and yeah I love it.
Now let's talk about the gaming company who developed this. First of all there's two brothers I think don't quote me on that who have an indie game company called Green hard games. And to them they ask the community one day. Hey guys you know what we have a good idea for a game which is called Game Dev Story as our Game Dev Tycoon. There is also a game called Game Dev Story for the Android systems. I'm a bigger fan of this game actually here.
And they asked Hey guys would you buy that game if we would make that. And they were like Yeah sure. Cool. That sounds really really radical and we would like to have something for a piece of you like that. If you could do that, that would be awesome. So those two brothers sat down they programmed the game. Eventually finished it and they sold about one hundred and sixty copies if I'm not mistaken. So a hundred and sixty copies. That's not too bad to start out with you know just for a week or something like that.
If you have a good community already but they noticed that over two thousand on torrents were pirated so. Because this game has no such things as C.D. keys and I can tell you right now you could get the actually and just play it as you would like to. There is no protection against that. But I think that this game is very well worth the money it costs nothing. Six euros or something like that. You definitely see much much much more higher priced games on steam. But why am I telling you this.
The gaming company itself like Reinhart games guys they pulled a very interesting move on the piracy computer community, by releasing their own torrent of version of fake torrent on them. Added it not only to monitor how many people will download it. But they also programmed something into the end of the game, or in the middle or something like that at least what I heard that your game will. Give you in a message like this right here welcome gate Welcome to game day of tycoon yada yada yada. But it will say well your company went bankrupt because of piracy.
And I just love the irony in that, you know just imagine the faces on these pirate guys downloading it and all of a sudden, oh, OK. So piracy made my bad company go bankrupt. And to maybe they realized OK it would be better to support indie games. Now I'm not totally against piracy. I actually support it to some degree in some software. But for indie games and newcomers I mean seriously give them a rest and just buy the game if you happen to have the money.

When Dave Johnson ask you to add red barrels to a game, approve it. It won't cost you much. When you make a game, if red barrels is available, select it. Don't place them in games that it would be awkward, like medieval games. If you make a good game, you will get to cake.
