A new way of playing Game Dev Tycoon

Hi :smile:

I think I’m not the only one who has pretty much done with Game Dev Tycoon as it is. Now, with the new mods available, I found a brand new way to play Game Dev Tycoon, which is not easy at all and can also be alot of fun.

First of all - download the Cheat Mod by kristof1104 here: [REL] Cheat Mod by kristof1104

Release one game in the garage, and than use the mod to move to the 3rd office, with the hardware and R&D lab, and give yourself 400M. Than, with the money, hire workers and be a console developer. Yes, exactly - the idea is to be a console developer, and compete with everyone. Now, it might sound like an easy playthrough with the 400M and etc, but it isn’t. When you don’t have fans, beieng a console developer can be hard. You’ll need to release hits and change with the times more than ever, mostly focusing on Graphics, engine and sound (the main things that you need to include in your console).

I played about 2 games like that, one has failed. This isn’t easy at all, and it can be very enjoyable and a brand new way to play the game.

Also, it adds to the fun if you release your consoles at the same time with the other console developers. You can also download other console mods, to add some competition.

What do you think?


I like it!

That is a fantastic idea, blows my mind!
In fact, imma go do that right now.

Thank you for the great idea!

To add to the experience, travel forward in time to the release of the NES (TES)

This way of play is very fun and enjoyable.

did you finish the playthrough?

I have played like that already. Its cool, but sometimes its hard.

not yet, I’m at the MBOX and Playsystem 2

I tried playing like this, but the console literally doesn’t develop. I had tech specialists, and researched Hardware in the R&D lab. Am i doing anything wrong?

Did You allocated budget in Hardware Lab?

nevermind, the console wouldn’t develop because i didn’t research “Custom Game Engine”
