Why there was criticism of its predecessor, Game Tycoon 1.5 on steam?
This has several reasons. The game was released in 2005, the main in 2003. In 2014 it was just a re-release on Steam by our former publisher. It was sure that there will be no updates. However, this has was promised by our former publisher. We apologize for this false statements.
On the other hand, many players thought, due to the similar name to another similar game, it is a sequel to this game. Which is not so. Game Tycoon 1 or 1.5 was already about 10 years old when it was publish to Steam.
In the meantime, the contracts to our former publisher was canceled. Our current Publisher (Kiss) and we have nothing to do with that which occurs, our former publisher has done.
Game Tycoon 2 is a new stand-alone game, which is developed from scratch.
