  2. Great fun
    by esthergigar, Spain - Mar 26th 2016

    Quite fun if you ever considered doing this as a job or a hobby. The game can be classed as educational in a way since now you know not to mix Racing with RPG or some other, terrible combination.

  3. Interesting take on genre; gets repetitive
    by green_knight, United Kingdom - Dec 4th 2015

    I loved this when I started playing it, and it definitely has the 'just one more turn' factor. But while you move into bigger offices and learn better engines, each turn is pretty much like the last, and in order to nderstand what consequences your choices have, you have to play far beyond my boredom threshhold. (At some point, I just asked myself why I wasn't coding instead and stopped, and I've not felt any urge to pick it up again.) But if you want a taste of what being a developer is like, this is not the worst introduction.
