Game Developer Tycoon
I’ve recently started playing this game called “Game Dev Tycoon.” It is a simulation game where you step into the shoes of a game developer to create and manage your own development company. I would like to share a little bit about some of my more memorable titles.
Dicks & Dragons (1989)
Critically and commercially successful, D&D is when games ceased to be just a form of entertainment and migrated into the realm of art.
If Hitler was a Jew (1991)
I will admit, MAYBE making this game an action game wasn’t the best design choice, and MAYBE the public wasn’t quite ready for the kinds of questions that were asked by this narrative. However, as All Games’ review of “Disappointing” makes clear, this type of game is still desired, but maybe needs a better execution.
Washington Werewolf (1996)
Looking to capitalize on successful franchises, such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, our design team asked, “What other Presidents led secret lives?” Most people know of George Washington as our first president and hero of the revolution, but not many know that he was a lycanthrope. In this game you have to lead the revolution while balancing your need to feed by moonlight. A commercial and critical success.
Castlevania: Vietnam (2006)
Not all games are successful. Not all games are good. Sometimes they’re just guys with whips running around the jungles of Vietnam being an idiot.
