A strategy game based on the software industry can only mean one thing - someone in the biz has succumbed to the overwhelming desire to stare lovingly at his own navel?

The concept of the game is very similar to Software Star, written by Kevin Whatsisname of Football Manager fame, that came out about a year ago. You have to hype your product like mad, for as little as possible, to shift those unites.

Trouble is, this game lacks the polish of Software Star, and could've done with some roadtesting and tightening up before release. That might have removed some of the irritating number of keypresses required and some of the more obvious decisions you're asked to make. What's more, the program has the cheek to suggest that software reviewers can be bribed! (Incidentally lads, my cheque never arrived this month).
