Also REALLY looking forward to this title. I got addicted to Game Dev Story, so this seems ideal.

I thought Bookstore Dreams was pretty fun although short. for me it had the right amount of speed and not too complicated. I wish they would make a Similar game too Dungeon Village

My company went bust in Y2 M4
I kept receiving hate mail no matter how hard I tried to develop my games well. It was horrible, I nearly cried. I now sympathise more with small eShop/DSiWare devs.

As is usual for Circle games, the English is atrocious:
"You success finish a milestone. Your company get more attentions now" Is just one small sample of the hilarious dialogue in this game. There are literally typos everywhere.

This seems more fun than Bookstore Dream. I wonder how much it will be. Well if the EU price is any indication, it should be 1.99 here. Yay I has enough monies in my 'wallet.'
