Game Dev Tycoon Steam Preorders

Indie game developer Greenheart Games announces Game Dev Tycoon is coming to Steam for Windows and OS X on August 29th. The game originally launched on the Windows 8 marketplace, and them jumping off that gravy train may be a meta-lesson for would-be game developers. The Steam Store is now accepting pre-purchases of the game, offering a 20% discount through the first week of availability. The game can also be purchased directly from Greenheart Games, where they also offer playable demos for Windows, OS X, and Linux. Here's a new trailer and here's word:

The game, which was initially launched on the Windows 8 Store in December 2012, was successfully re-released on Greenheart Games’ website in early 2013, and received praise from both critics and fans alike. The developers were most recently discussed worldwide when they purposely uploaded a cracked build of their game that had players' studios failing due to piracy (causing hilarious and sad results). Game Dev Tycoon, which was updated for this release to respond to player feedback, will soon be available on Steam with a launch price of $7.99 (USD), 20% off the normal Steam price of $9.99.

In Game Dev Tycoon, players get to start their own game development company and play through the history of game development. Players will start their humble business in a garage in the 1980s. As they research new technologies, create best selling games, hire and train staff they will grow their business and their impact on the industry. Players get the ability to make their own virtual games, choose the genre and what platform to release on. As they grow they will get opportunities to move into bigger offices and unlock secret labs, become the leader of the market and gain worldwide fans.
