Just bought this today, haven't really played much of it yet but it's feeling like a text version of game dev story, it's not only text though you do see progress bars for research and things.
Haven't really played enough for any real impressions yet but looking cool so far if you like this type of thing.

I am really interested in this, even though I despise hipsters. I love text based, managers.

Right here goes my impressions, I'm not to great at explaining things tho
You start off by naming your person and product and choosing from a list of what kind of product you will be marketing and who your marketing to.
You start off with just you as your only staff member and some money, you start off by assigning your guy to a tech job to start working on your product and you assign them to one of three different roles from features,stability and something else,
And your progress bar goes up as your person is assigned to a task and you need at least 10 points of tech on a product before you release it,
But before then you will want to hire a new member of staff to put on marketing your product, which works similar to tech where there's three positions of marketing to assign them to, to drum up customers before you release your product.
You also have sales positions to assign your staff to.
I'm not sure any of this is making sense and to be honest my advice probably isn't great as my first two business ventures only sold 44 items then went bust,
But to me this feels very much like a text based game dev story and the people this appeals to will probably buy it anyway,
It's deffinetly like game dev in the way you learn by doing as I'm slowly figuring out what I'm doing.
Seems like there's a lot to do and see here, if your interested I'd say get it.

Looks interesting. I'm a little weary of dropping $3 on a text-based game, so I'm going to wait around for a price drop (or for more impressions; perhaps one will convince me to take the plunge). I am interested in eventually playing this game, however.

What exactly makes them lame? I don't understand the negativity when people say stuff about hipsters.
