An Update!!
So, The votes have been counted!!
Your very own gaming company
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the CEO of a large gaming company and publish your own games and consoles ? Game Developer puts you in the shoes of your very own game company. Start from the bottom as an Indie Developer hiring friends or random people off the internet, then work your way up to being the biggest company in the world, winning awards, releasing consolse to the public and getting the top spot in the charts!

The Small Decisions have big impacts
Decisions like if you want to work from home or hire out an office will heavily effect your game. Gaps in the market will have to be found to ensure the top games otherwise fans will get bored. Advertise you games in different ways theres the obvious like TV and Newspaper articles, although smaller things like giving early access to big youtubers will impact heavily depending on the communitys reaction.

Customisation Galore!!!
Customisation will play a big factor, for example customising the look of your game and making it relevant to your designated genre. For Example if you made a game named DEAD WORLD and made the cover Pink and sparkly the game would not ship well and have a massive effect on the company! Change the Genre from board games to Action create the game you have dreamed of and put it into the market!

You have your Say
As always the communitys ideas are the best ones bringing more minds together is always better then one. Please Post you suggestions in the comments section below, if i decide to use it your in the credits and will appear as an NPC in the game.

Have a sort of build mode for size of building and what can be included at each floor etc maybe some famous game decorations based on the genre of that floor from a game you have made as some sort of reward later on.

How about some big name indie companies making appearances in the game like Mojang? It would really set the mood, and perhaps you as a player could even try to compete with them and overrun their popularity.

Will you be able to choose which console you release on in game, and will technology progress in game (like from the 16bit era to 3D). Love the idea btw - ill be keeping an eye on it.

Oh, and I hope you won't stop technology progression at 3D, I'd love to "be" the first company to release a home holodeck!

Maybe if the internet had a progressing role like it does in real life. Maybe later in the game part of an advertising campaign could be 'Parody Viral Video.' Maybe you could also have a ratings system (E,T,M etc.). Maybe you could add Natural events like storms, snow, the like and include insurance ccompanies.

With the name I assumed it would be from the 360 indie revolotioin, but maybe not, either way someone else's attemt at a game dev game would be good to see, if this is still active, that is...

This really deserves to be picked back up with some updates, seeing as no one has "perfected" this theme and it needs to be accomplished. :3

I like Game dev Tycoon and I would definetly try this one if the project goes on!

There is a game just like this called game dev tycoon. Make sure that if you choose this goal that it sets itself apart from that game. Game dev is a pretty good game, so I'd recommend you play it so as not to find yourselves outdone.

It looks like fun but seems like a game dev tycoon...
