Welcome to the industry!

Game Tycoon has taken you to the fascinating world of game developing in a, not always, genuine/serious way since (the year) 2002.

In 2003, Game Tycoon, as a very detailed business simulation of the games biz, was released. In 2005, the game was extended to version 1.5 with a free update. Furthermore, this new version was released as a boxed version. Then Game Tycoon 2 was newly developed and conceptualised as a whole. In 2015 it appeared via early access on Steam as well as finally on Steam and as a boxed version in 2016.

Additionally, it was released for Android and iOS. Today fans still enjoy the very detailed simulations.

In 2021 and 2023 Idle Game Tyccon was released, first for Android and then for iOS. It's an idle-game for mobile.

On this page you will find everything you need to know about the different versions of the game, including screenshots, news, support and downloads.
