I use "KAOS" as the name of my custom consoles, and the spreadsheet requires that. Factor number two is how the genres target balance correlates with its designation of important and unimportant fields. Meaning, Graphics specialist assigned to Graphics for pretty much any game, or Dialogues specialist assigned to Dialogues in an Adventure or RPG game.

Fields in yellow are supposed to be typed in by you, fields in orange are output fields that provide you with information. RPG is HIGHLY recommended however because it has great ratings with both the PC and the Gameling (the two best platforms) and both Young and Mature audiences (what the Gameling and PC excel in respectively). Simply continue to make games using this engine and eventually one of your games will be a hit. However, if you catch it early enough, it may be worth the slight hit for the next game or two to lower the amount you want to increase.

However, to develop an Adventure, you have to assign time precisely on the Stage 3 (give Graphics absolute minimum you can before violating the "less than 20% on important field" rule) and you will still be lacking - your balance, without influence of features or employee stats, would be 2.33 (not enough to reach desired 2.5 Design/Tech balance).

Try to pick a contract that gives you best royalties - rating requirement is irrelevant (even if you fail you pay not that much for it to be an issue), and make sure required topic/genre is a great combo and required audience fits the topic and the platform.
