Game Dev Story

I picked this one up for my Iphone on the recommendation of one of the game sites that I read.

The gist of the plot is that you run a small game development company. You hire, train, promote and fire staff based on your needs. Some staff are exceptional, and some suck.

The 4 criteria that staff get measured on are writing, creativity, graphics and sound. You need all 4 to make a good game, and cross training is important as your staff get tired, take breaks, and what not.

It's pretty engrossing. Lot of little inside referances if you've been into games for a few years.

Well worth the 99 cents. Though the prices fluctuates between 3.99 and .99 depending on whether they're running a promotional sale.
