AWESOME but plz add more things!!!!!!
Alright, first off. It's an Awesome game!!!! I now have more respect for game creators and daaannnnngggg competition is tough. I think that's how you say it right? XD anyway you should add employee personalities because it's kinda boring and what's the point of firing them? Besides to get a better employee. An example of it would be like an employee is a "bully" and yelling others and things like that. It makes a whole new purpose in firing them which makes you pay attention to your employees more. 2- You should add character/ CPU interactions just to make it real ish. It would be cool if u did add it :D. 3- at the end of the game, why don't you make up more consoles? Your able to progress more and be able to generate ideas to new gamers and inventors and maybe invent a similar model and console like that. If you keep doing that, you could evolve the company to the office place in a 3/4 floor buildings and move the research lab thing and the console builder below it and more floors of your company above it. 4- speaking of research lab, you should add more research topics because after the grid and MMO, it's basically conventions and more conventions. 5- speaking of conventions you should get something for being top in the 3G , or G3 idk. I know it's still an early game (I think) and your maybe adding more things. So these are the things I suggest you to add :D Thx!!! Ps. The Game Is AMAZING!!!!
Very fun but also VERY frustrating.
I do keep coming back and trying again with this game, and it is admittedly addicting, but it’s also way too frustrating. It’s way too hard to figure out what development strategies work with any given game, whether you’ve done dozens of game reports on your previous games or not. Even when I’ve made highly-rated and very successful games, I was basically just guessing. I’ve been a serious gamer for years, so I tried using what I know I like in games and what I’d like to see focused on as a measure of what I should focus on, and that also seems to be a 50/50 guess at best. Given how fast the gametime moves, I don’t have enough time to really learn from any previous mistakes and/or successes, even if the game reports taught me those things, which they do not. It seems like unless I write down what the game reports say on my own, they’re pretty useless. Even when I see “+++” or “- - ?” under Graphics, or A.I., it doesn’t seem to have any effect on whether I full boost that or not, or put it on zero or not. Also, on any given phase of the three, it seems like even when I have the bar set all the way down, it will still show on the right side that 50% is being spent on that focus. It’s just way too frustrating never knowing what may work or not, even with all previous hints saved onto new games.
I absolutely love this game
This is everything I have been looking for in a game in which you have to run a business. I love that I get frustrated when a game doesn’t do well or get really excited when I get the ratings and profit I want, it’s because of that, that I have been able to play to for hours on end. But now I want more and I have ideas. My one concern is that when I opened my hardware lab there were a lot of options for consoles but now I only have 2 options and there both cubes, one white and one black. I have a lot of money saved up so I don’t think it’s anything about that but I am curious as to why there was once a big selection, and now only 2.
I would also love a feature where we can interact with the businesses of other players too. Maybe being able to partner with companies, invest in them, buy hardware or even license hardware and game engines, that would be very cool. Also I think if at a certain point, like maybe when player generates enough money and gets a feel for the game, what works and doesn’t, there should a feature that allows players to start teams, like the graphics team, the dialogues team and so on, I feel like that would be a good way to continue growing.
