The home office is the nexus of your company and where you start the game. The office is upgraded throughout the game with different departments that give you access to additional options. In fact, endeavors such as research or hiring employees are gated behind having specific departments active.

OverviewEdit

  • You begin the game with a single base level office with a limited amount of space for departments. Once you have enough currency, you can invest and expand, greatly increasing the amount of available space.
