Greenheart Games Pty. Ltd.
Greenheart Games was founded in July 2012 by brothers Patrick and Daniel Klug with a mission to develop games that are fun to play rather than mind-numbing money grabbers. Less social, less ville, more game is our motto.
– We begin work on concepts for a round-based game development simulation planned for the iPhone.
– We change plans and re-target the game as a real-time isometric simulation for the upcoming Windows Store.
– Greenheart Games is officially founded.
– A preview version of Game Dev Tycoon is released on the Windows 8 Preview Store.
– The full version of Game Dev Tycoon is released and becomes the first simulation game on the Windows 8 Store.
– Game Dev Tycoon is ported to Windows, Mac and Linux. The release causes world-wide media attention when we report our piracy rates on day one.
– An updated version of Game Dev Tycoon is released on Steam to a great reception.
– We release Greenworks, our library enabling integration of node-webkit based games with Steam, under a MIT license that allows others to build upon these tools and use them for commercial purposes.
We started a number of new projects with varying success. 2014 brought a lot of challenges and after many hard lessons learned we refocused our attention on some core projects.
We updated Greenworks to make it even easier for HTML5 games to integrate with Steam.
We started to carbon offset our international flights as well as general electricity usage.
We became friends of the Central European Game Conference.

Dave McGabe (Narrative Designer)
Dave has been writing for too long to recall, but he wrote his first video game story in ’97 after playing Final Fantasy 7. It was about a universe-travelling bounty-hunting werewolf and her robot sidekick. Since then he has written for various mediums, companies and games, as well as teaching others how to do the same. He still hopes to makes ‘Robot and Girl’ some day…
He is not really a drawing. He is, however, un-photogenic.
