About Game Dev Tycoon

The first simulation game available on the Windows Store in 2012, Game Dev Tycoon was ported to PC, Mac and Linux the following year and now has over two million players. The game gained worldwide attention for its piracy experiment: players who pirated Game Dev Tycoon quickly went bankrupt in-game due to piracy rates and asked for DRM and other anti-piracy measures to be added to the gameplay. In November 2017 and January 2018, Game Dev Tycoon was released on iOS and Android respectively.
