Game Dev Story launches for Android

Hooray! Game Dev Story, the rather niche iPhone game about working in the video game development industry, has launched on Android – with developer Kairosoft releasing its iPhone SMASH on Google’s OS over the weekend.

Basically you run a video game development team and are charged with developing a smash hit, managing budgets and hiring talent. Here’s the description:

Manage your own game company and try to create a million-selling game in this unique simulation. Features the ability to develop your company’s own game console, plus a system for changing your staff members’ professions.

Your staff members can have a variety of game-related professions, from programmer to sound engineer

And here are the shots. Looks like the developer has just put iPhone grabs on the Android market listing, which is a little naughty…

Game Dev Story is probably of most interest to those of you with an interest in or job to do with video games. The iPhone version went down a storm with game nerds. It’s on the Android Market now, for 400 Japanese yen.

Which translates to around £3.00 if you get a good exchange rate out of your bank.

We’re put together a gallery of screenshots from the Android game here.
