Steve Jobs & co. reported in mid-January that Apple had shifted a total of 145 million iPhones and iPod touchs since launching the devices in 2007.
Qi has it on good authority that quite a few members of the ever-expanding iOS community enjoy kicking back after a difficult day’s work and immersing themselves in Dead Space, Real Racing 2, and Infinity Blade, to name but three.
So, by extrapolation, now is an opportune moment to begin developing a hit button-masher for Apple’s mobile platform...and readying the bank vault.
How fortuitous, then, that Kairosoft has knocked 75 percent off the RRP for its highly Qi rated management sim Game Dev Story.
Take your fledgling video game company from an incubator unit in Cambridge to a five-storey office on the outskirts of Pasadena, producing genre-defining titles in your sleep. Well, that’s the theory.
To do so, you must hire and fire the right engineers, coders, and marketing gurus until that coveted Game of the Year trinket resides happily on your mantelpiece.
Kairosoft’s tongue-in-cheek insider jokes certainly raised Eurogamer’s cockles during review: “Game Dev Story's adorable Sensible Soccer-style codewording of famous games, companies and designers also never fails to raise a smile. You can develop for the Intendro Whoops or the Sonny PlayStatus.”
