Business Magnate 1.2 update



Business Magnate update 1.2 is now available.

This update adds some new features, two new supported languages (French and Russian), and a handful bugfixes. It also includes the most wanted "recurring supply orders" feature. Details of changes in this update:

  • Automatic re-ordering supplies
    There is now an option to auto-reorder supplies, so you don't have to order for example metal every few minutes manually.
    Once you are able to produce a model automatically, this feature is enabled.
    There is now a new checkbox next to the "order" button which makes this possible. You can cancel automatic ordering again in the 'deliveries' tab.

  • Fluctuation re-balanced
    If you are paying your employees well, they won't quit that often anymore. Also, they now quit in different patterns now, which are more realistic.
  • Maximum production amount increased
    You can now produce more than previously 200 items at the same time. Once you have produced more than 100 items, you can instruct any production facility to produce any item 500 times, and later even 1000 times.
  • Added french translation
  • Added russian translation
  • Fixed a problem occurring when ordering materials via automatic production: the money would sometimes not be removed from your account, this is fixed now.
  • Fixed a bug causing the store overview dialog not to display anything sometimes when you had a lot of end products which you had stopped producing

Thanks for all the feedback so far! Hope you'll like this update.

Further feedback is welcome as always!

Business Magnate 1.1 update

Business Magnate update 1.1 is now available.

This update adds some new minor features and a handful bugfixes. There are bigger features planned for the next update, like "recurring supply orders". Details of changes in this update:



  • You can now manually enter the exact amount of supplies to order, using the keyboard, instead of just using the slider. Additionally, there are also up/down arrows for quickly adjusting the value.
  • You can now hire more than 30 employees at the same time if you have a big company. Depending on the size, you can now hire 40 or even 50 employees at the same time.
  • When running a "Computer" business, the first researchable graphics card component now has a much better performance than the base integrated graphics card "basic".
  • The 'fluctuation' value has been adjusted a bit, causing very big companies not to lose employees that much anymore.
  • Fixed a bug which would sometimes show the wrong finished research topics in your mail reader when you have more than one company
  • Fixed problem which caused the game to start up with a black screen when you are running it on Windows with the language set to 'Chinese'
  • Fixed a problem causing the game to run slowly when you have finished researching something and you run the game on Windows with the language set to 'Chinese'
  • Fixed a bug which caused the simulation to stop running sometimes if you delete a product or model while it is being produced automatically
  • Fixed a few typos in the english version
  • Fixed a bug which caused the current amount of workers to show up as '0' all the time in the production overview dialog

Thanks for all the feedback so far! Hope you'll like this update.

The most wanted new feature seems to be "recurring supply orders", which will be added with the next update, if everything goes right.

Further feedback is welcome as always!

About This Game

Business Magnate is a tycoon business simulation game where you can create all types of businesses: Cars, rockets, phones, tanks, trucks, airplanes, computers and ships. Design, produce, market and sell them. You can even run multiple companies at the same time. Become the ultimate Business Magnate (or Business Magnet).

What can you do in the game

  • Company types: Cars, rockets, phones, tanks, trucks, airplanes, computers, ships
  • Build offices, warehouses, production facilities
  • Design products
  • Research new components and product types
  • Produce products and components
  • Run marketing campaigns
  • Manage employees

How it works

Start by creating a company: First, choose what to produce. For example, you can design cars (combustion engine based, electric, hybrid), then produce, market and sell them. Other types of products are trucks, phones, computers, ships, airplanes, tanks and even rockets. Once you are successful, you can even start more companies, and run them at the same time.

Design and Research


In order to meet market demands, you need to design your products so that customers will actually want them, and won't prefer to buy your competitors products. Research new technologies and design new products as your move on to fit into a moving market. For example for cars, you want to research bigger and more efficient batteries, if you decide to produce electric cars, or more performant combustion engines if you want to produce gasoline or diesel based cars.

Gameplay


The game is running in real-time, but can be accelerated and paused at any time. Manage employees, track financial and sales data, start and run marketing campaigns, analyze the market. Expand your company when you have figured out how everything works and manage the production plan and build new facilities, warehouses, offices or even launch pads.
