Game Dev Story dev releases new game

February 28, 2011

Kairosoft, maker of our 2010 iOS Game of the Year, Game Dev Story, has released their American followup. The Japanese company’s next English-language release? Hot Springs Story, where players manage a traditional Japanese hotel and spa.

It looks to have interface improvements, but generally retains the feel of its predecessor. Except, well, it’s not about games. (The company has previously confirmed that a sequel to Game Dev Story is in the works, and they’ve also made Game Dealer Story, where players run a store, that’s most likely next to be translated.) It’s available in the App Store now for $3.99
