There is a bunch of stuff that is currently ‘in progress’ but I didn’t want to delay these changes any longer:

So also coming soon are 8 new achievements, and new logos for your company, plus logos for the different banks making loans, and translations into Dutch and Polish. Don’t forget to vote on the priorities for the next patch, and if you haven’t already left a steam review, a reminder that these are super helpful.
I’m hopeful that this patch also fixes some save game corruption some people are experiencing.
