I'm not entirely sure what to make of this - I'm sure plenty of people will cry "clone" and it looks a little rough plus isn't actually free like the description states. But...I've been desperate for Game Dev Story 2 for so long that I can always get some enjoyment out of games like this and the screens have a certain charm.

I'll most likely pick this up regardless after waiting to see if it turns free that is.

Can't tell if it's cloning Game Dev Story or its PC clone, Game Dev Tycoon.

I'll wait for impressions, since it apparently didn't stay free for any time at all.
