Viaticboss19 (158)

Roughly 500 lines of codes, and many hours of code later, Game Dev Simulator is complete.
The Game gives you an overview of how to play so an explanation is not needed. Have fun, and start the game company of your dreams!
Enjoy.

AJDevelopment (50)

@ChezTacoz I'm making a game console if you want to you can develop for it.

firefish (509)

@ChezTacoz You need to see How much of a success Rip-off Game by Firefish Co was

ChezTacoz (340)

@firefish I did an even more big brain thing:

ChezTacoz (340)

ChezTacoz (340)

@firefish thats the secret! just make every game cost 1 billion dollars and make profit 😎

firefish (509)

@Rumble330 I created one called ripoff game which was worth about 10^140 -1 dollars

firefish (509)

@RahabarSekandar and a negative number of people bought it haha

HermioneGrange2 (6)

@ChezTacoz How do you get so many fans????? I have like a gazillion dollars but only 1,000 fans

octopyBot (263)

tip: always put more money into marketing then development in the start so more peeps will buy your game!

octopyBot (263)


my company should be called octendo

firefish (509)

@octopyBot My question is why is your browser zoom so high, is it that you don't know that windows 10 comes with a tool called "Snipping tool"? ("It may be called Snip and Sketch in some versions

octopyBot (263)

@firefish its not, i just zoomed in to take the photo

firefish (509)

@octopyBot there is a program called snipping tool Which allows you to take a snapshot of an arbitrary rectangle on your screen

@octopyBot Tetris Smash Bros? Shut up and take my money!

potatojs (801)

my name is potato i made a company called potato inc and i made an EPIC game called potato adventure and the profit was -9000$
what's wrong them?a potato game should at least have a million dollar profit

Viaticboss19 (158)

@potatojs I agree, who ever made this game should fix this! :0

Leroy01010 (243)

@viaticboss is the creator of the game @potatojs

but thats good feedback

AJDevelopment (50)

@potatojs proceeds to do a not nice gesture to the people who didn't like it

octopyBot (263)

@Leroy01010 bruh its a joke @ViaticBoss19 literally commented saying whoever made this should fix it

HermioneGrange2 (6)

I made a couch potato game, the profit was -100,000$. People are insane these days. then I made another game and the profit was 99,999,99999$. whaaaaat @potatojs

mkhoi (291)

Very nice game! also i think the Console: should be changed to Platform

firefish (509)

@mkhoi Because I was confused and had to look through the code to find out what it meant... I thought console as in tty lol

jort57 (9)

Jort Inc. Made a game called potato boy. It’s production budget was $4. Its marketing budget was $2. It was sold for $500. Jort Inc. Made $20,000 off it. I am possibly qualified to make a successful game company.

firefish (509)

@potatojs BBBBBBBB this shouldn't be allowed

viraatvv (145)

nice, but it is easy to break this game.

firepuff13 (10)

Great game! So fun!

epicman702 (211)


hehe, i love the sequel function

JosephSanthosh (1180)

When @Viaticboss19 posts [GAME] Game Dev Simulator...

Me: How does this person know my whole life !?!

stubaduble (13)

WOW, This game is not at all realistic, but thats what made it really fun!
you could literately just say spend $1 on marketing, $1 on production and spend 1 month on development, then sell it for 100 million buks each, and 15 billion people will buy it! making you infinite cash!

i would like it if you could make a setting int he start of the game to go either realism, or fantasy, and if you could add a upgrade shop and a bit of a story line that would be great!

without being funny, if you were to make this a literal game you could buy off steam, i would buy it. thanks for the good python game @Viaticboss19

Viaticboss19 (158)

@stubaduble Thanks man, yeah the Algorithm certainly isn't perfect, but it was the best I could come up with without spending weeks on it. I'm not too educated on topics like Calculus so it was quite hard to make the equation but I think it's fine for what it is.
As for the other ideas, they're quite interesting, though I doubt I'll be updating this, if I ever do create another game, these are all things I will certainly think about adding.
Thanks man. :D

Smart0ne (17)

Nothing short of brilliant. :)

how to get rich in hard mode

firepuff13 (10)

Can you add a cancel feature for when you click 1 instead of 2? etc.

viraatvv (145)

you know C#... right?

Viaticboss19 (158)

@viraatvv Kinda, why do you ask? :0

firefish (509)

@Viaticboss19 Well, I'm not the same person, but uuuuhhhggrgrhrghrghrgrhgrhgrhgrhrghrgrhgrhgrhrghrgrhgrhgrhgrhghrgh,

ZDev1 (615)

woah nice!
good job!
add databases it will be super cool to see other's game, company, money, etc.

Viaticboss19 (158)

@ZDev1 I'm not really planning on updating this, but if I make another game this could be a feature I could add.

ZDev1 (615)

@Viaticboss19 I can make it with a database and other can see other community and game etc.
but only if you need me to do it ;)

Viaticboss19 (158)

@ZDev1 Up to you man, to be honest I just posted this game to share, I wasn't exactly planning on updating it, but now I know what the players want, if I ever make anything similiar I will definetly be implementing some of their ideas.

ZDev1 (615)

@Viaticboss19 oh but the problem is...
it will be not a text game
it will be a website
with a language called nodejs

So I will work on it with another language
if you agree!

firefish (509)

@ZDev1 In NoDeJs YoU cAn mAkE tExT bAsEd GaMeS cough console.log("*cough*");
and replit db exists

firefish (509)

@ZDev1 AnD rEpLiTdB hAs A cLiEnT iN pYtHoN

ZDev1 (615)

@firefish wut are ya talking about

InvisibleOne (300)

CAMEL CASE IS N.A.S.T.Y SO DON'T USE IT @ZDev1 @firefish

InvisibleOne (300)

Also, @firefish HOW DARE YOU BURN THE POOR APRICOTS TO DEATH!!!

firefish (509)

@InvisibleOne A. thisIsCamelCase, AnD tHiS iS bIcAmErAl.
B. The Apricot thing is a meme, hence grilling apricots on the barbecue

Duvangamer3845 (115)

@ZDev1 in repl.it , looks like the uniques languages is html css js and nodej

ZDev1 (615)

@Duvangamer3845 no
html css and js are the same language
python is also famous

Duvangamer3845 (115)

@ZDev1 1. im sure that is incorrect, 2. weird time python got more than 3 upvotes, but yeah, its famous

Duvangamer3845 (115)

@ZDev1 but it is a GRAPHIC GAME got more upvotes

Duvangamer3845 (115)

@ZDev1 really, you wanna convert the text game of this python developer???? i think a best idea can be learn mysql on python r sqlite 3 on python and pygame, tkinter, or pyxel....

firefish (509)

@InvisibleOne By any chance are you the one that invited me to @FluidLiquid? I saw a message that said @BrownieBoi created it, which is your old username

InvisibleOne (300)

What? I didn't great FluidLiquid, that was @FluidCycling I think. I am part of the team, but I haven't invested anybody to it. @firefish

Duvangamer3845 (115)

after 5 games

second run:


my brother wanted these titles

and the finale too:

HyperGamerStuds (59)

After 1 months of working on f, it was finally released on 4/3/2020.
The total cost of the game came to $2.
0 people bought f.
hsgs made $0 in revenue, and $-2 in profit.

YuvanVighnesh (26)

As a beginner, this is very interesting to me. Might start coding later today......

elizurfk (11)

But can you please put like a save and load thing inside the game? Thanks
