The developer behind Station Manager, Kairosoft are best known for their award-winning app, Game Dev Story. As with any Kairosoft game, Station Manager is a simulator that cleverly forces you to manage the success, popularity and finances of a job or business – this time, it’s a train station. Station Manager is a highly addictive game that will keep you striving to make improvements to the quality of your station, and continuously better the financial state of your company. As will all Kairosoft games, the setting and visuals have very little impact on the games mechanics, but it is nice to watch them if you enjoy that retro pixelated style.
