Patchnotes via Steam Community

Hi there! ːschappyː

Beta 23 is now available. Restart Steam to get it right away!

On paper Beta 23 might not be a super exotic update. Fortunately it feels very different once you start playing. The brand new time machine and the additional play speed comes as the main changes. Together with tons of "rebalancings" across all parts of the game the overall gaming experience is now much more smooth (I know, this sentence is bad. Help!).

As with each Beta release we just want to make sure that you’re aware of the fact that there might be some bugs or other unexpected issues. Jonas is on standby, ready to make sure that any discovered issues are fixed as soon as possible. If you find any bugs or experience any issues make sure to either let us know on the community hub or by joining our Discord!

Help System

The new help system is introduced in Beta 23. The system will help you understand every aspect of Startup Company, this is especially interesting for new players.

The system will first be introduced in English only. Once we're sure everything is covered, we'll have to translated later to the other languages.

3x speed

Finally! Many of you requested one more play speed and I can happily say that it is included in Beta 23.

Time Machine: Version 2

Some time ago I received a review on Steam where the time machine was described as: "It feels like one of those annoying popup ads" I never really received any other complaints about the time machine but I completely understood what was meant by it. After some investigating, I've found a way to simultaneously allow the time machine to run and still allow you to work on your company! The updated time machine is also shipped in Beta 23.

New components and modules

Beta 23 includes new components and modules. I've been focusing on 3 things:

  • Designers: Will now be even more relevant, especially late game. The designer is now able to merge designer components into brand new designer modules. There are now components for Beginners, Intermediate and Experts.
  • SysAdmins: The SysAdmin is now able to merge SysAdmin components into new SysAdmin modules. There are now also components for Beginners, Intermediate and Experts just like the Designer. Configuring servers will require different components/modules depending on the type/throughput.
  • Website features: Rebalanced current feature upgrade requirements to better fit the progress of the game. High level features will now require high level modules.

New investor milestones

Beta 23 introduces new late-game milestones making the journey to Top #1 more smoothly.
