You hire developers at a young age and start training them to help develop their skills. As their experience develops, you unlock new options for how to progress development on your games, including researching new content to add to it as well as discovering new genres.
This does mean you must find fluid ways of combining popular genres and content depending on how the industry is trending at that moment. It’s also important to foresee upcoming trends and get in there early to be a dominator of the market.
Game Dev Story+ is an Apple Arcade exclusive, meaning you can currently only play it on there. It’s the premium subscription service on iOS that gives you access to hundreds of different mobile games.
You can download Game Dev Story+ from the iOS App Store via Apple Arcade.
