Greetings everyone!

It's been 3 months since we released City Game Studio in Early Access.
During those months we kept working on City Game Studio, fixing bugs, adding new game genre, new themes, new features...

Finally today we release the Employee update!

Want to save on taxes? Want to boost your game's hype? Want to produce more?
No problem, let's hire an accountant, a marketing manager and a producer!

What about the studios? People who are working on other stuff, such as game ports, contracts or even post-mortems?
A human manager will help you manage your employees and will boost their happiness!

That's all for today!
Thank you all,
