I'm happy to announce that modding support is available. Obviously no actual mods are available yet but if you are interested in adding stuff to Game Dev Tycoon then now is the time!
How can I get the mod-enabled version?
You will have to have the Steam version of the game (until the beta is over).
Use the Steam beta feature.
- Right-click on Game Dev Tycoon.
- Click on Properties.
- Go to the beta tab.
- Select the beta version from the drop-down list. (If you don't see a beta version, try re-starting the steam client or log out from the client and log in again.)
Wait, until Steam updates the game. Once the update is complete, you can start the game (it should just work like usually).
Great, I have the beta but there are no mods!
Indeed, that's were you come in. If you want to create a mod, head over to the official Game Dev Tycoon Modding API github project which is, in fact, a mod itself.
You see, since we developed a game about developing games, we thought it would be fitting that we develop a mod that enables developing mods in the game about developing games...
What language can I write mods in?
What can mods do?
When will we enable mods for the default version / outside steam?
As soon as we are happy with the stability of the beta.
And when will we get Steam Workshop support?
That will depend on how much interest we see in modding. If there is a lot of interest we will consider Workshop support.
