Damn you All Games...

After a great reception for its iOS release last November 28th, Greenheart Games are delighted to announce that Game Dev Tycoon is also coming to Android devices this January 31st.

Praised for its replayability and faithful-but-improved-on recipe, Game Dev Tycoon on mobile (developed in partnership with Rarebyte) introduces a UI overhaul, a challenging pirate mode inspired by Greenheart Games’ piracy experiment and a content update (which is also on its way to Steam soon.)

“It’s the perfect sort of game for mobile devices and there’s so much to do here in terms of developing personnel, researching items, and making games that there’s loads of replayability for quite a long time.” - Toucharcade ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Game Dev Tycoon lets you build your game studio from a one-person team in the 80s to a major studio in the present day. Relive the early days of game development, build a world-class team, design best-selling games, research new technologies and make your mark on the games industry.

  • Start a game studio on your own in the 80s, and grow it into a world industry leader
  • Create your own games, mixing-and-matching genres, topics and platforms
  • Hire, manage and promote your development team (but beware of crunch!)
  • Open your own R&D lab and become an industry leader
  • Try out a new challenge with the “Pirate Mode”: will you use DRM to keep afloat, at the risk of angering players?

About Game Dev Tycoon

The first simulation game available on the Windows Store in 2012, Game Dev Tycoon was ported to PC, Mac and Linux the following year and now has over one million players. The game gained worldwide attention for its piracy experiment: players who pirated Game Dev Tycoon quickly went bankrupt in-game due to piracy rates, and asked for DRM and other anti-piracy measures to be added to the gameplay.

About Greenheart Games

Greenheart Games was founded by brothers Patrick and Daniel Klug in 2012. It’s a small indie team working remotely from all over the world, gathered around the belief that simulation games need to be more than thinly-disguised slot machines optimized solely to generate profit. After Game Dev Tycoon, their debut Game, went viral for its piracy experiment, the team is now developing Tavern Keeper, a fantasy tavern simulator that aims to combine tycoon/sim/management gameplay with a fun setting.
