The Company – Update 6.1.2
Update 6.1.2 is largely a back end infrastructure update aimed at updating existing systems and putting in placeholder code for future systems, like the comment engine. As such, no additional content has actually been added in this update. Actual content creation will continue starting immediately after the release of this update.
I know I’ve been talking about image packs a lot lately, and today I’m happy to finally dive into the technicalities of how they’ll actually work. Additionally, I have some news concerning Update 6.1.2’s release as well as an artwork update!
The first ever image pack voting event has wrapped up in Discord and I’m happy to say we had a lot of fun! Not only did we get to flood one of our channels with some wonderful photographs, we also sparked a number of interesting discussions concerning the image packs themselves.
So… It’s been a while since new content’s gone out, huh? What you may not know (or may, if you’ve experienced my neurosis firsthand in Discord) is that going through a content drought is just as anxiety-inducing for me as it is boring for you. It’s like being in line at the bank, or having your hand up in class but having the teacher call on everyone else for the answer except you! Or maybe it’s like trying to suck a golf ball through a straw… or at least a cold Oreo milkshake through one…
I feel like I’ve lost you.
The community event to vote on a new image pack for Penny has officially begun. Head on over to the Official Discord and hop into the Events section to get in on the fun. Every day I’ll be posting a new image to vote on with the winners of each category making it into the final image pack. The voting’s already underway, so head on over!
In other news, tune in this Thursday for the first dev blog dedicated to Update 6.1.2, what to expect, and when you can expect it!

The Company – Update 6.1.1
Comment System Update
Known Issues – Missing Saves
If you’re playing on the Online version of the game and notice your saves are missing, you’ll need to export your save file from the current online version of the game and import into the new one.
The process itself is fairly straightforward…
First, make sure the sidebar is open, and click SAVES.
Then, simply click Save to Disk to export your save file to a local .save file, then repeat the process at the new host using Load from Disk to import the .save file. Simple!
Note that this functionality is inexplicably missing from the mobile version of the game. I’ve found that forcing your browser to view the site as Desktop Mode allows this to work, at least on Chrome.
Of course, those playing the local version of the game don’t need to worry about this at all!
There’s been a lot of development going on behind the scenes lately and a big part of that has revolved around proper image pack implementation. Unfortunately, the the 6.1.2 update will take a little bit of time to complete, so to help pass that time we thought it would be fun to host a community event that will help shape The Company!
So let’s get right to it.
