Beta 29 is now available. Restart Steam to get it right away!
It's been 42 days since the last beta update. While Beta 29 isn't the biggest update, it delivers some important changes. One of these changes has been in the pipeline for more than a year!
Let's jump right into it and see what's new.
The CEO's backstory allows you to select which skill your CEO had before becoming a CEO. You'll be able to choose between developer, designer, or manager. No matter which role you choose, the CEO will still be able to participate in recruitment. All you have to do is manually switch between his roles.
The CEO is the first and only employee type that can handle multiple skills.
New Fusion Hardware
Beta 29 introduces brand new "Fusion" hardware. Both new hardware items are very expensive, but are also the most efficient seen so far.
Generates a lot of heat, but it's also the first server to produce all three types of throughput.
Fusion Heat Transformer
Incredibly expensive but reduces temperature by a stunning -55 Celsius (-67 Fahrenheit).
New Enhancement Feature: Help System
This headline might be confusing. It's not an in-game help system – it's a new enhancement feature you can add to your website. Adding the Help System will not only allow you to increase overall satisfaction (it counts as a regular feature), but it also greatly reduces the number of generated support tickets.
Tidal Power Investment Project
A third investment project is now available: Tidal Power. It will unlock both the Fusion Heat Transformer and the Fusion Server. The upfront payment is $28 million and the minimum daily budget is $1.2 million.
Beta 29 also contains a lot of bug fixes and improvements. The most exciting ones are
- Employee Menu: Order by age added
- Retirement warnings added
- New achievements: "The Wave" & "Dangerous Future"
