What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing a game on Early Access allows me to get feedback and input from players while the game is still in development, which can help me improve and refine the game before its final release. It also allows players to try out the game and provide their feedback before it is fully completed, which can be a great way for me to gather ideas and suggestions from my audience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan to release the full version of the game in 2024.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have all the innovations from the roadmap, as well as the "Story Mode".”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game offers both Free Mode and CEO Mode. These modes feature random events without a linear storyline.
Currently, the game is fully playable. Players can immerse themselves in the '80s and '90s, capitalizing on opportunities to turn a profit. You have the ability to invest in stocks, earn dividends, and monitor stock prices, all while managing your finances and navigating various challenges. Additionally, players can invest in real estate and vehicles to enhance their standard of living, operate businesses, and earn income through both legal and illicit means.
You have the option to either become the CEO of an established company or launch your own venture and hire a team.
Engaging mini-games like pachinko and horse racing betting are also at your disposal.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game might get a more expensive.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will communicate regularly with my players and keep them informed about my development plans and progress, engage with my players on social media and gather feedback and suggestions from them.
I promise to be open and responsive to the needs and feedback of my players and to make an effort to involve them in the development process of my game. I understand that this can help ensure that the final version of the game is the best it can be and that it meets the needs and expectations of my player base.”
