VOTE for King of Retail in the 2020 Steam Awards!

Dear Retailers! The 2020 Steam Awards have arrived! And while I think there are a few awards that fit well with King Of Retail, we are only eligible for one of them. That's fine, though, because I think this award fits the game best! And that is the Labor of Love category! There are many words that can describe my feelings regarding the development of King of Retail, but I think the main one would be: love. Having spent quite some time being a store manager in real life, trying to create a game ...

However it doesn't state anywhere in the game what the currency is, but from what i can tell, you mentally translate them into your local currencies, which in hinds...

Dear retailers! It's been over a month since the last update came out, so it's about time you get some information about what the time has been spent on. ----- Tablets ----- As promised, electronics need to be expanded further. So some of the time has been spent making tablets, which is an item to be sold along with the mobile devices, so there is a little more content in this category. My goal is for these items to be available next week. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE} /34023693/357f745feeb44d54e036f47c54e...

Dear Retailers! It's time for a little newsletter :) --- Since the last patch --- It's been roughly two weeks since the latest larger patch was released and it has been well received. However ss programming is like a giant spider web, where pulling in one string affects another string somewhere else, i always get extremely nervous around each update, since there is always bound to be some bugs slipping through. For instance, adding indivdual days for each store, influenced what wage the HQ manag...

Hotfix uploaded

Dear Retailers A few bugs unfortunately slipped through the last update. - When loading a game HQ managers start with 0 optimism. They will now load as usual. Unfortunately already affected managers continue with their last saved value. - Customers whislte and leave, when a register is closed which they are not in queue for. They will now behave as usual, and go to another register if the one they were heading to is closed. - Staff will not require large wages when returning to a store after a l...

However on the good side, i will from next week be getting some extra help making the game from a friend who wants to learn how to make graphics. His job will be to add content in various areas, and in general help with the time consuming tasks, such tha...
