Game Dev Tycoon is out now on the App Store!


Greenheart Games' best-selling business simulation Game Dev Tycoon is now available on iPhone and iPad with brand new content, a new timeline and a challenging new game mode. Players can get the game for $4.99 from the App Store, and enjoy the hit game studio simulation on the go with its new content update.

This port stays true to the original and is a full premium title, with "no in-app purchases, no ads, no wait mechanics, no virtual coins and definitely no loot boxes", as Patrick Klug (Greenheart Games co-founder) specified. "It's great that we can bring a new gameplay-focused premium simulation game to the mobile market. I hope players will enjoy it."

Game Dev Tycoon lets you build your game studio from a one-person team in the 80s to a major company in the present day. Relive the early days of game development, and make your mark on the games industry.


  • Start a game studio on your own in the 80s, and grow it into a world industry leader
  • Create your own games, mixing-and-matching genres, topics and platforms
  • Hire, manage and train your development team (but beware of crunch!)
  • Open your own R&D lab and become an industry leader
  • Try out a new challenge with the “Pirate Mode”: will you use DRM to keep afloat, at the risk of angering players?


About Game Dev Tycoon

The first simulation game available on the Windows Store in 2012, Game Dev Tycoon was ported to PC, Mac and Linux the following year and now has over one million players. The game gained worldwide attention for its piracy experiment: players who pirated Game Dev Tycoon quickly went bankrupt in-game due to piracy rates, and asked for DRM and other anti-piracy measures to be added to the gameplay.

About Greenheart Games

Greenheart Games was founded by brothers Patrick and Daniel Klug in 2012. It’s a small indie team working remotely from all over the world, gathered around the belief that simulation games need to be more than thinly-disguised slot machines optimized solely to generate profit. After Game Dev Tycoon, their debut Game, went viral for its piracy experiment, the team is now developing Tavern Keeper, a fantasy tavern simulator that aims to combine tycoon/sim/management gameplay with a fun setting.
