  • What will it cost?
    Estimated price is $9.99.

  • Is this like Game Dev Tycoon?
    No, the gameplay is much more like Big Biz Tycoon 2. It's a sandbox game, no story.

  • How is the gameplay?
    The game contains a day/night lifecycle. All employees will be animated while working, but they don't walk around. Instead they go transparent when out of office. We're working on a "Let's Play" video.

What is next?
Getting Greenlit is obviously the next big thing. When that (hopefully) happens I'll have to decide whether we should go with a full release or go for Early Access. There's still a lot of features I want to implement into the game, which speaks for EA. On the other hand I can still add more features to the game if it's a full release. I'll keep you updated.

Cool numbers
In the last 8 days 97 people have been playing Beta 7 for a total of 228 hours. An average of 2,3 hours per player.

53 bugs have been reported to our Github repository[github.com].

210 people has joined us on Discord[discord.gg].


That's all for now. Once again thank you for all your amazing support <3

The game is tiny. I can't see it on my screen. How can I make it bigger?
