After acquiring a small loan , you a fledling game designer start your Video Game Company to not only repay your loan but also become the biggest and greatest video game company in existence, along the way new consoles will appear and competing companies will appear and disappear, in addition the player must watch the market and research into technology and gamers to determine what games to make and what actions to do.
Gameplay is divided up between the isometric view of the player's office/s and the various sub-menus. Using an isometric perspective players are able to look over their workers and office/s as well as hire/fire/promote workers in this main area.
Players can also click on workers to see how they are performing, this includes listing their current task, their hunger, thirst, tiredness, current feeling, personality and level with their speciality (or level of all specialities if they haven't been designated).
Games in Production
The first main submenu is "Current Games in Production", represented by a pile of folders and paper as its symbol, looking in this submenu, players can get a quick glance at all current projects in a scroll bar style with completion bars to show how far into production they are, the completion bars have colour codings for each speciality to show how they are going as well as colours for publishing and shipping (if the game is released internationally). By clicking on any game the player can get a more in-depth analysis of what the game is about and how it's going in production, with individual progress bars for each speciality shown. While in this area players can look at;
- The Game's Genre
- It's approximate Data Size
- Consoles Game is released on
- It's estimated Retail Price
- How Anticipated the Game is
- Where it is being sold (Locally, Regionally, Country-Wide or Internationally)
The next Submenu is "Create a Game", represented by a Game Case with a shining star on the top right, within which players are able to start production on new games. From the start the player has several options on how to make their game, while in this submenu the game's time will remain paused, the options for players are;
- New Intellectual Property
Each of these options effects numerous factors in both the game's production and its success with gamers, this can range from time it takes to create the game, amount of content in the game, anticipation for the game and even ratings of the game (as Sequels, Prequels, Remakes & Ports are judged against their predecessors). After this option is chosen, the player chooses the sort of game it is by selecting;
- Physical/Digital (Latter only available after 6th Generation of Consoles)
- Data Size
From there the player is directed to their list of available to workers to determine who will work on the game, it is important to note the chemistry between workers as some workers make better products and products faster when they have good chemistry. Workers can work a maximum of three fields of the game meaning that a minimum of three workers is required on a game, the maximum number of workers is 30 per game. It is important to note that a game's workers also require a conference room to fit their numbers so the player may be limited in that regard as well.
After this the player chooses what programs are to be used, programs can vary greatly and a worker must be trained in that program before being able to use it. The programs change over time although very slowly and there is lineancy of one generation of programs so workers don't have to constantly be upgrading their programming skills. Once all programs have been chosen the production of the game can begin.
The next submenu displays the statistics of the player's company, this includes various elements of the company;
- Number of Workers
- Games for each Console Company
- Net Worth
- Overall Income/Loss
- Worker Salaries
- Electricity, Food & Water Bills
- Rent Bill (if renting an Office/s)
- Highest Profitable Games
- Console Sales
- Anticipation for next Consoles
- Current Video Game Trends
- News from other Video Game Companies
- Most Recent Programs
- Upcoming Programs
This Submenu is intended to help players understand their company and read the market as well as anticipate changes.
This Submenu allows players to construct, demolish and edit their office/s this contains numerous submenus for each type of construction;
- Exterior Construction - Walls, Floors and Roofs, needed to make a working space habitable
- Exterior Design - Wall & Floor Painting colours
- Working Stations - Locations where Workers can be hired and includes buying equipment for workers
- Specialities - Equipment specific for particulary specialities, although it is limited how many objects a worker can have they all provide advantages for their particular speciality
- Special Rooms - Conference Rooms, Marketing Departments & Head Offices, these are all prefab rooms that server a particular purpose
- Food & Water - Various structures to provide each, this can vary from something as small as a Mini Fridge to a full blown Cafeteria
- Ornaments - Anything that has an overall impact on the workers nearby, usually boosts worker's emotions and can be plants, statues, paintings, sculptures or even small knick-knacks for the worker stations
- Doors & Windows - Self-explanatory, some variations can provide benefits, windows often function similar to ornaments with the more expensive ones
- Multi-Level Access - Necessary for multi-leveled buildings, this includes stairs, escalators and elevators which can impact worker efficiency as well as their mood
A special submenu unlocked after moving into a company owned office, Operations lets the player have direct contact with particular parts of the industry such as reviewers, console companies and even rival companies. The player can set up negotiations which can range from combining companies, buying out reviewers or rival companies, negotiating exclusive deals with console companies and a myriad of other options. More options become possible with the greater success the player's company has.
In this submenu the player can also buy and sell shares in rival companies.
The last submenu, The Industry looks at how consoles are performing overall, it provides news regarding not only scandals but also recent reveals and releases and provides a scoreboard for both the highest rated games of the season and the highest rated games of all time (this is impacted by reviewer scores and overall sales)
When creating games certain aspects can affect how long the game takes to make as well as what the focus of the game is (which of Programming, Sound, Art or Literary takes the most effort).
Genres of games are split up into numerous factors and impact how much effort each field needs to put in to make the game, in addition certain types of game genres can only be accessed after a certain time. There are 4 Genre Categories; Graphical Genre, Style of Game, Genre 1 & Genre 2.
Graphical Genres are split up among four types; Text, 2D, 3D & Virtual Reality. Text is available from the start, 2D is available from the second Generation of Consoles onwards, 3D is available from the fifth Generation of Consoles onwards and VR is available from the twelfth Generation of Consoles onwards.
Style of Game is the main genre the player choses and has the most impact over each fields' work loads. Some styles of games are unavailable with particular Graphical Genres as seen below;
|Style of Game||Text||2D||3D||Virtual Reality|
After choosing the Style of Game the player is then directed to chose their Theme Genres, listed as Genre 1 and Genre 2. These Genres have minor impacts on the work load but also provide the most variations. The player can choose 1 or 2 Genres from this list as long as they both line up with the Style of Game chosen.
|Theme Genres||RPG||Platform||Shooter||Fight.||Sport||Sim||Party||Puzzle||V. N.||I. M.|
Workers in Game Corp 2 greatly vary from their predecessors, a much more advanced AI is used this time around accounting for many factors although still retaining the core aspects of the workers.
As shown above the workers have three main stats; Food, Water & Tiredness on the front of their card, these are shown as segmented bars which gradually go down over time, it should be noted that these bars vary between workers and some workers can have lower maximum capacities for these bars than others. Next is the Job which is determined by the rank the worker has as well as their speciality and overall experience with the job. Next is Mood and Personality, the mood can also be seen by the background colour and facial expression of the worker which changes according to moods, there are a total of 12 moods which can impact a worker's efficiency and the rate at which its hunger, thirst & tiredness fall. Personality meanwhile gives an indication to what sort of worker the person is, this includes what sort of genres they are best at and also the rate at which their hunger, thirst and tiredness can fall.
On the back of the worker's profile the player can see the worker's stats in each field as well as their overall experience, this can help determine for a player what area they should specialize in. In addition the chemistries are shown on this side as well, a total of 7 Best and 7 Worst Chemistries can be shown, although workers will always have some form of a good or bad chemistry which must be looked at by dragging one worker over the other.
The range of a worker's appearance can vary greatly, workers can vary in their clothing, skin colour, eye colour, hairstyle & hair colour.
While regular workers do have their appearance randomly generated the player designates their own, while physical features are all available players must buy clothing from the store with company points, which are earned based on how many games the player's company has made with a 50% or higher aggregate score.
A number of personalities appear for workers in Game Corp 2, some are positive while some are negative, some can influence how well that worker is when making games of a particular genre or if they are particularly savvy in one style of programs over others.

Moods dictate how a worker is feeling, moods have an impact on the game the worker is working on as well as the production rate of the of said game, certain items can improve items and making sure that access to the various needs of the worker are met will help maintain positive moods. Every day all workers will start out with either Happy, Calm or Frustrated Moods which can change during the day according to what happens.
Happy - The best mood for a worker to have, while a worker is happy their work efficiency will increase by 20% and the game they are working on will have a slightly higher quality to it, in addition a happy worker can influence Calm and Bored workers to improve their mood as well.
Calm - The most common mood as the start of a day, calm workers have a slightly increased work efficiency of 10% and can easily be influenced by the mood of their co-workers.
Bored - Usually a mood that occurs later in the day by workers who either have been doing no work or have been in conferences the whole day, Bored has no impact on worker efficiency although it does decrease the rate of decay for the Hunger and Thirst bars by 10%.
Frustrated - The worst mood a worker can start the day on, frustrated workers can be easily aggrevated by workers whom they have bad chemistry with, ending up with them becoming angry, a worker can also get frustrated from being in the red of any of their three conditions (hunger, thirst and tiredness) or when they have to walk a long way to get to something to suffice one of the three conditions.
Angry - A dangerous worker, angry workers will refuse to work until they calm down, they can also influence other workers to become frustrated and sometimes even angry themselves. If a worker is Angry for more than 15 days in a month then they will resign, in addition angry workers can damage ornaments.
Tired - Tired workers are workers who have been working for a long time without a break, although the rarest mood it reduces worker efficiency by 50% and increases Hunger and Thirst decay rates by 25%. Tired workers can also result from a worker with an empty Tiredness meter staying that way for too long.
Each console company tends to focus on particular aspects of the console and can be a bit predictable in that sense however they are not limited to their speciality.

The Rival Companies in Game Corp 2 are much more extensive than their predecessors, there are two types of Rival Companies; Universal and Random. Universal Rival Companies will always appear and while they can vary in location of origin they all have set focuses. Random Rival Companies are randomly generated and randomly named video game companies mainly meant to provide competition for the player early on, it should be noted that while the player can buy out any Random Rival Company that appears, they can only buy out 5 of the Universal Rival Companies, this is to prevent the player achieving absolute dominance.
When a player buys out a Rival Company they acquire the office/s that company owned as well as 50% of their workers, in addition the player can make continuations to the bought out company's IPs.
Universal Rival Companies
- Neno Games and Research Division - Focuses on Platforming and Adventure games, will always create a new IP every console generation and can drop an IP for multiple generations before bringing it back

Random Rival Companies
Random Rival Companies frequently appear and disappear, the survival of a Random Rival Company can be pretty random, some can last a long time even with poor sales whereas others can disappear all of a sudden even if they have released a renowned game. Some general factors to the survival of a Rival Company through the year is how many games of the same genres they made are released, the number of rivals in a city/region and the popularity of their IPs.
Players can also buy out Random Rival Companies with no limitation, allowing them to gain the IPs of that Rival Company as well as half of its workers and the office/s that Rival Company owns. When a Rival Company is bought out, all Rival Companies in that city that are Non-Universal will have a slight decrease in their rate of development giving the player a boost.
Programs in Game Corp 2 differ from the previous game by being dynamic instead of static, new programs are developed over time by the various Program Companies which beomce more advanced in their methods. It is important to make sure workers keep up to date with their programs otherwise if too much has changed in the programs for a console the worker will be worse at developing the game.
There are five programs for each field of game development.
- Trueyes Engine
- Plasma Vocalizer
There are a number of locations that players can set up their office/s numerous major cities across the world allow for players to set up offices these can help with having international releases as well as overpowering rival companies who have stronger holds on those areas of the world.
As shown in the image above the world is split up into 11 Regions, each with numerous available cities to place offices. Regions vary not only in personal genre preferences but also major rival companies and even which consoles are available. The 11 Regions are;
- NA (Green) - Home Region of; Nivinus, Mireteya, Coelius, Efaarnia & Marrano, the largest Industry early on and stays that way throughout the game although becomes less dominant in later generations, the toughest rival companies form here and it is the only region in the world the player cannot start their company in.
- West SA (Cyan) - One of the easier to develop regions, it is not home to any console companies although does get good support from the nearby companies, it is the recommended starting location for new players due to the general low Rival Company spawn rate and disinterest international Rival Companies have in the region.
- East SA (Indigo) - A rapidly changing region, this region has the fastest changing trends making it a challenge for both the player and rival companies to conquer, the region is also riddled with console inconsistencies often missing some generations entirely.
- EU (Navy Blue) - Initially a small region that becomes the second most powerful in the late game, many rival companies start out here ranging from easy to hard competitors, in addition the region is known for having an almost opposite trend style to the other regions.
- Sequential EU (Red-Orange) - Home Region of Atamach the region has a massive favourability for the console and even restricts other consoles from appearing at all, in addition it will keep trend information better hidden than most regions making a greater focus on operations in this region necessary.
- Middle East (Dark Red) - A small region although very lenient with prices, the region is not recommended for low price games although high price games and consoles to remarkably well, the region also has an almost stagnant trend making Rival Companies local to the area able to easily dominate it.
- P-Asia (Cyan) - An invisible region initially, until the 7th Generation of Consoles this region cannot be used for international releases and all Rival Companies within the region only release locally until then, the region becomes incredibly large in the late game usually being the second or third largest overall, the trends tend to fluctuate slower than most regions.
- N-Asia (Dark Grey) - Home Region of; Primodo, Sarana & Sy-Ton, the region is initially one of the largest although shrinks over time relative to the other regions, it is possibly the second hardest region to dominate as Rival Companies will often become very loyal to one of the Console Companies of this region, in addition the trends in this region can vary chaotically being slow or fast.
- P-Africa (Yellow) - A slow developing region that tends to favour more old-style games over newer ones, this can be used to ones advantage and most rival companies in this region generally don't pose much of the threat, the region is rather weak for local companies due to the small market and slow technological growth, trends seem to change predictably around the change of generations.
- N-Africa (Pink) - A very small region with no competition locally, the region is hard to develop international companies in however and can easily get dominated by much larger Rival Companies, the trends in this region are slower than average and sometimes are a delayed variation of other regions.
- Oceania (Orange) - Initially a small region that becomes one of the larger regions around the 4th or 5th Generation of Consoles, the Oceania Region is best for Ports and Internation Releases from other regions or Local Releases, its trends change about as quickly as most regions if not a bit faster.
Numerous cities are available to chose from, it is important to consider the city the player chooses as it can take quite a long time to be able to change HQ in Game Corp 2.
|New York||NA||Hired Workers tend to produce better Action and Exploration Games|
|San Fransico||NA||Construction Costs reduced by 5%|
|Toronto||NA||Worker Efficiency is increased by 5%|
|Mexico City||NA||Hunger Rates decrease 5% slower|
|San Salvador||NA||Ornamentals effects increase by 25%|
|Santo Domingo||NA||Random Rival Comapnies cost 10% less to buy out|
|Panama City||West SA|
|Rio De Janeiro||East SA|
|Buenos Aires||East SA|
|Abu Dhabi||Middle East|
|Kuwait City||Middle East|
