Greenheart Games is updating Game Dev Tycoon for release on Steam after clearing the Greenlight process. The indie team drew attention when pirated copies of their title suffered 'piracy', bankrupting studios.

This cheeky stunt led to some rather ironic comments from pirates, like how do you research DRM? It will be launching August 29th at $7.99. 1980s basements here we come.

Our fledgling game studio begins in a dingy basement/garage but can eventually expand into mighty triple-A powerhouse, and even launch its own console.

"As they research new technologies, create best selling games, hire and train staff they will grow their business and their impact on the industry. Players get the ability to make their own virtual games, choose the genre and what platform to release on. As they grow they will get opportunities to move into bigger offices and unlock secret labs, become the leader of the market and gain worldwide fans."

Game Dev Tycoon first sold on the Windows 8 Store in December 2012 before Greenheart Games sold it directly through their own website in early 2013. Fans and critics praised the indie sim for its take on game development.
