This guide will cover all of the parts of Game Dev Tycoon (Game Combinations, Unlocks and Achievements).
The first time I played the game I kept going bankrupt in the basement stage, mainly because I didn’t know what aspects were important with what genres.
If you want to get all of the achievements I recommend you reading the part about achievements first.
Things you should NOT do
- Creating two or more games in a row which have the same genre/topic.
- Developing a sequel/expansion within a year.
- Developing large games with 2D Graphics V3 or lower or 3D Graphics V2.
- Developing a AAA game without having 3D V6.
- Developing a AAA game without having all of your employees specialized.
Best Game Combinations
A good game has to have a good combination of Genre, Topic, Audience and Gaming System.
Try to find combinations which have a ++ average.
The ~ means that it doesn’t really matter.
In the charts I’ve added in the images you can see which combinations work.
