DevLife Update 0.8.79: New Features and Bug Fixes

DevLife Update 0.8.79
DevLife Update 0.8.79 Steam

DevLife received a major update focused on new features and bug fixes. The two main additions introduced with this update are health conditions and employee motivation program; more details can be found below.

Health Conditions

The developers have introduced six different health conditions that are contagious, serious, and even deadly. But these are what people usually deal with regularly. With a new task at hand, it is now up to the players to properly handle such a situation since health conditions can directly affect the company and personal life, just like in the real world.

Employee Motivation Program

The latest update has introduced the employee motivation program. After the company reaches a certain size, employees will demand a share of the profits. However, it is completely up to the players to decide if they would like to share and how much they are willing to share.
