  2. Great for Fans of Gaming History!
    by Greedy, USA - Sep 1st 2014

    I think this would be a fun game development simulation game for anyone, but it's particularly great for anyone who's a fan of the gaming industry and the 80s. Little treats are hidden throughout the game, like a Pong poster and a peek of a Delorean in the start-up garage. I'm still trying to get the "Turn it up to Eleven" award! The game development choices are endless! Kudos to the developers!
