Dear fans and entrepeneurs,

we have important news for you!

First of all we want to let you know that the newest upcoming update is nearly ready!
This new patch will change the balancing quite a bit!
But before we will release it we would like to get some final polishing in and therefore we would like to have a group of interested players to beta test the patch and feedback on it for us! :)

If you are interested in beta testing this patch, just write us a mail to "bugreport@astragon.de" to apply as a tester.
The mail should include the amount of time you have already spent in the game/ when you started / what kind of player you are (e.g. focussed on profit optimization, casual player, focussed on one product line, trying to unlock all the products, etc.) and of course your steam username!

Your feedback can be written in English or German.

The beta test could start directly after we received the application and the test will probably last until the first week of January, but can be extended.

Participants will receive a changelog of the latest fixes/changes and we will update them on any changes asap!

We want to make clear that this coming update will only affect the balancing of the game, no features.

So what we need most of you is your feedback regarding the balancing, like:

Do you make enough profit in the game to play in a desired pace?
Do you feel that the upgrades are too expensive or too cheap?
Does the research take too long or is too fast?

Please let us know!

Thanks in advance to all of you and best regards!
