Toplitz Productions released the previously available PC title Mad Games Tycoon, a game company management sim, to Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. In April of 2019, Toplitz Productions had acquired the PC retail along with the porting and commercialization rights to the game for consoles and mobile devices with a signed agreement from the developer Eggcode Games.
In Mad Games Tycoon, players start off as a small indie studio that strategically works their way up to becoming a big player in the video game industry. This game is more than just playing a video game. Players will need to manage the day-to-day business and logistic needs of the studio that includes renting office space, hiring of staff, and of course creating video games.
With time players can move on to build their own game engines, cut licensing deals, and create a next-gen console. There are over 40 technologies to explore such as graphics, sound, and control. Players can develop and market a game based in or any combination of 15 genres with almost 200 sub-categories.
As the small backyard garage studio grows, players will need to rent more space. The layout design of all the different rooms and areas is up to the player. All that space will need to be organized and furnished with desks, cabinets, and plants that help keep the staff happy.
More space also means more room for staff and departments. Testing, development, training, server room, production, marketing, sound, and graphics will all need to be equipped and staffed with the best people possible. In the end however, it is up to the player to decide on what games to create that people want to play.
