Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Game Dev Story is a fun simulation game for players willing to dig around a bit to find the instructions. The game follows the growth of your video game development company as you hire employees, choose game genres, pay for advertising, and make as much money as you can. Great games can earn awards at an annual ceremony or get a best-seller nod. As time passes, new consoles are released and you’ll have to purchase license rights in order to stay competitive. You have 20 game years to get the best score possible. After that point, you can keep playing (without a new score) or start a new company.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Our star rating assesses the media’s overall quality.

The Support Level for Game Dev Story is about a 2 out of 5.

The actual instructions are buried in the in-game menu. The company secretary guides kids through the basics and then prompts and offers clues throughout play, but there’s very little guidance as to why you would make one decision over another.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
