Time to settle in for a doozy of a post, as Haseo and I spent a good part of our day yesterday narrowing down the 141 submissions to the 20 best! Below, you’ll find the selected pitches along with developer notes regarding potential modifications and considerations for each event, if applicable. Without further ado, let’s jump right in!
We’re kicking off 2022 with a fun community event set to give everyone a chance at getting a new random event of their own design added to The Company!
You’ll be submitting your idea for a Random Event that will occur, randomly, in the game either while at work or at home. These events are typically recurring, usually offer a way “out” of them, have some kind of minor reward or impact if interacted with, and have no major gameplay ramifications. Examples include walking in on Penny mixing components in the lab, getting asked out to lunch by Diana, or impromptu study sessions with Dakota. The rules for submissions are as follows:
Submissions will be open from now until next Tuesday, January 18th, at which case the best ones will be selected and put up for the community to vote on! Depending on the number of entries, we’ll be taking the top 1-2 voted options and turning them into in-game events, with the author being credited whenever the event occurs.
You submit your entry HERE!
I hope to see lots of participation! Have fun everyone!
We’ll have news regarding the upcoming community writing event next week, but for now I wanted to invite everyone to participate in a long overdue feedback survey. These surveys go a really long way in helping us prioritize content updates, see where improvements could be made, and just generally get a bead on the how the community is (and is not) enjoying various elements of The Company.
