Creating a video game can be hard work – unless you’re doing it in a video game.

Game Dev Tycoon, a simulation game where you can run a development studio any way you see fit, will arrive on Steam/PC this week for the low price of $9.99.  Consumers can get it even cheaper for $7.99 if you pre-order before the game’s release on August 29.

This lengthened edition of the game will come with new platforms and artwork, as well as the ability to edit a game name before its release. You’ll also be able to rebalance the review system, check out post-game reports and company expertise, and so much more.

Greenheart Games, Game Dev Tycoon‘s creator, also stated that it’s already working on its sequel, which has already come out for PC and graduated Steam Greenlight back in May. Unfortunately, a release date hasn’t been given for it just yet, but it shouldn’t be too far off.

Quick “pro tip” – make sure you invest heavily in your marketing budget…
