I didn't see any mention of this game here, so I thought I would see if anyone has played it or know anything about it.

I am enjoying it. It is definitely a different experience. You hire new employees in addition to the ones you have and they level up. The more they level up, the better games can be produced.

This isn't something I could talk about quickly... there looks like there is a bit to it. Worth my money and time so far.

Totally open ended or are they giving you finite goals?

Not to far in but hiding from the high score and gameplay, it looks open ended.

I picked this up and it's pretty fun. You train your employees to make them better, you can choose to contract out a job or hire a new employee. I attended Sengas unveiling of a new console and now have to save up for a license to develop for it.
Also to boost your cash, you can take contract for other companies. If you miss the deadline they will threaten never to use your company again.
It is open ended and you can do whatever you want.
I'll answer any questions anyone has.

I love simulation games and this one sounds pretty solid, I will probably be picking this one up in the next day or two. If anyone else has anything they'd like to share about the game, I would like to hear it. Thanks
