improve the FPS and fix the lag in the third office.
Button to pause and change speed
Longer title box - something to the tune of 64 letters, perhaps. Or two boxes with a 32/32 split, for separate title and subtitle.
I also vote for extended hardware features.
Give game engines the ability to have ‘sequels’ much like games do.
If you design a game engine that factors in more graphics stuff and then research a new graphics tech then you should be able to make a better version of the earlier engine while only paying for the new upgrade. Maybe factor in some extra percentage costs due to development or something as well.
I’d like for it to prevent me from naming a game “Game #123”, for example.
Leaving the field empty and auto-focused on (so that you don’t have to click the text field) when starting a new game would be great.
A lot of really good ideas on here.
Basically more computers and consoles: I would love to see it start with older computers like Apple II’s, Vic 20’s, Timex Sinclairs, Odysseys and earlier consoles like Atari, Intellivision, Colecovision, and the more obscures ones as well. Include the Atari ST and Amiga. The time line should then continue on but create random consoles so the user could continue playing after the 30 years.
That’s actually a good idea!
Add mod support
A revamp of the Combination system. It just doesn’t make sense why for example a Ninja Action game is better than a Pirate Action game D=
I would suggest an option menu choice to remove the Tutorial comments OR make the OK button on all the comments tied to the enter key (or equivalent input on a tablet).
more researching options @ R&D lab (3d graphics v8 <)
My one feature would be a ‘Ghost’ mode. Many racing games offer a ghost racer representing your previous attempt(s), so I propose that your previous attempts in GDT should be reflected in alerts that a rival company has:
- made a hit game,
- or built a new console,
- or offered their engine to other companies (which you could choose to licence),
- or even gone bankrupt.
And the timing of each message would be based on the timing of when you did one of those things in a previous game.
Would be funny if you could sabotage your ghost as you do sometimes to other companies.
That would be fantastic!
Some sort of leaderboard feature that shows you the names and genres/topics of friends’ and other users’ games.

I could write a long list of great ideas and suggestions but I will keep it small and simple to something not already suggested here:
Global Highscorelist to compare to other players!
