This game has it's issues. In full-screen mode, whenever you change windows, the game blinks to the desktop to show you a loading bar, then goes back into the game with the new menu. There is no useful information in the game, tutorial or otherwise, to get you started. The audio always works fine, but sometimes the voices seem to work, while other times they don't. However, if you take the time to watch someone who has learned this game play it on Youtube, I think you will enjoy this game for a while.
I watched someone else play, was reminded instantly of MAD TV (an old German DOS game where you run a television station in a similar fashion), then bought the game in a bundle. It is similar to MAD TV in a few ways. You run your character around various places to draft ideas for games, hire workers (programmers, artists, composers), buy engines until you can afford to make your own, produce the game, then get a publishing contract, and finally ship the game to stores. There's even a store you can enter to check the top 10 selling video games, until your game stops making money, where you then can try to sell it or throw it away. There's an auction to get license for real movies and other popular brands (I had a spoof of Indiana Jones that sold well, but also cost me a lot). There is enough going on in this game at any given point to where you get in this loop of design, produce, sell, and it might take you a restart or two, but with a little trial and error, you can be successful.
Overall, this game is definitely a lower budget title, and it shows. I would've liked to see a bit more, such as gaming conventions like in Game Dev Tycoon, or even awards that your game could win from reviewers. But like MAD TV, once you learn the ropes of the game, and finally avoid going bankrupt on your budgets, it's a pretty solid simulator. Nothing special, but it's definitely entertaining for a couple of hours at least.
