Hi, my name is Jasmine and I’m addicted to Game Dev Story.
I’ve put down the dualshock, given up the Wiimote and stopped yelling at my Xbox 360 to get a taste of the mobile life on my iPhone.
If you’ve got an iPhone then there’s no need for me to relay how addictive most of the apps on Apple’s little gizmo of wonder are.
Thanks to my equally as crippling addiction to Twitter ( I’m @Jasmino924 fyi) I discovered what can only be described as one of the most simplistic yet time-gobbling game out there ; Game Dev Story.

In GDS you set up your very own game development company, striving to be the next Hideo Kojima or Shinji Mikami with your company of some of the most talented employees with some of the most well-rounded skill-sets.
You’re in charge of deciding what games are made (including their genres, platforms and names) and I’ve spent a painstakingly dreadful amount of hours trying to unlock the genres required to make the next Metal Gear Solid or Heavy Rain just for the thrill of making one of the games I’m forever writing about.
I honestly have no idea what makes the game so addictive but my love of creating imaginary video games has literally taken over, like a tidal wave of pixels and fun (!) and I’ve found myself playing Game Dev story in both my maths and science lessons and I almost missed my stop when I was playing the game on the bus.
The echofon Twitter app aside, I don’t think I’ve used any app on my phone as much as Game Dev Story.
I can’t do anything but recommend this app to you – it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever downloaded for my iPhone.
Now please excuse me while I go and remake God of War…
