Hi Boss! I have a knack for security and I think we could really do with some security upgrades in our office. I have done some research and I think with an investment of 50K we would be a lot safer than we're now. What do you say?

Oh no! It seems that %latest game% had quite a few undiscovered bugs when we released it.

Some of our customers are having a bad time with this and they demand that we patch the game.

We could either spend the money and time to patch it or ignore their pleas. If you want to patch the game then click/touch on a character and use the action menu to develop a patch but make sure that you don't wait for too long.

Air conditioner

  • Y7 M4 W3
Boss, it's way too hot in our office and the heat is starting to impact on our work. I've researched and found an air conditioner which would be perfect for us. It costs 90K. Should we order it?

If declined once, after random number of weeks:

Boss, the heat is becoming a serious problem. Just yesterday my mouse melted and my keyboard is covered in sweat. Not a good environment to work in. We really need an air conditioner. Unfortunately the previous offer has expired and we would need to pay 180K. Should we order it?

If declined again, after random number of weeks:

Boss, We've had enough and ordered the air conditioner ourselves. Thanks for nothing.

  • First time: pay 90K
  • Second time: pay 180K
  • Evil +2

We can just pay and he they do not bother us again or we can refuse and face them in court to try and resolve this in front of courts.
