Rnd

The R&D Lab is an area in the technology park (the fourth and second last office of the game) accessible after certain requirements are completed. R&D Lab grants access to the new area, new game development options, new engines, and new income opportunities. Depending on the budget you allow it, the R&D Lab produces a certain number of R&D points that go towards the active project (i.e. Console or computer) . If you do not have an active project, it will produce generic research points.
