Update #12: Oil, Robots and Mini Surveys

Posted by Dr. Mirko Seithe (Creator)

Hello there!

In the last few updates I have added transport robots to the game. Robots, which are built in the robot workshop, do not eat or sleep. However, they require oil to function. You get oil from building oil pumps on top of oil wells. Oil pumps are the first automatic and animated building in the game. Have a look.

Another feature I have added recently are mini surveys. Mini surveys are simple questions like "What should I work on next?", "How many FPS do you get?" or "How do you like the new robots?". In order to participate all you have to do is to click on an answer. It's really easy and helps the development a lot. (If you do not want to see the surveys, you can disable them in the settings menu.)

Oh, and pigs carry items on their backs now. :)

What else would you like to see in the game?

Have a nice evening!
