The Quintessential Construction Simulator
THE YUPPIE UPDATE IS NOW AVAILABLE
We’re delighted to announce that access to the Yuppie update for Landlord’s Super is now available on Steam Early Access. If you have Landlord’s Super already purchased and downloaded on Steam, your game will update automatically. Otherwise, you can purchase Landlord’s Super Early Access here.
The Yuppie Update marks our arrival at Version 1.0 which sees the addition of the Yuppie class of tenant, the Harold’s furniture catalogue, caravan customisation, benefits system, crime & punishment systems, graphical improvements, gameplay changes and bug fixes.
Overview & full patch notes below:
YUPPIES & HAROLD’S FURNITURE
The final tenant has entered Sheffingham and is looking for the best digs in town. Build a property to suit their demands and fill it with all new furniture from the Harold’s catalogue to entice their application. Yuppies are rude, demanding tenants but when taken care of, they pay exceedingly well…
“Slinging the lead, kid?”
Whether you’re struggling for work, or injured yourself, you’ll be able to claim unemployment’s benefits and invalidity benefits by making a visit to your local Job Centre. Just be sure you’re not caught working while claiming…
CRIME, PUNISHMENT & PRISON
The local police station has finally opened up and Constable Gareth is looking to bring order to Sheffingham. Players will now need to answer for their petty crimes, including vandalism, benefit’s fraud and disorderly conduct.
Players caught disrupting the peace may be issued a Penalty Notice, which they’ll need to pay off through community service or fine payments. Failure to address this notice – or repeat offenses – could result in players seeing the inside of a prison cell.
Lots more changes to the environment with this update. There’s a whole new police station, more suited to the small town vibe of Sheffingham. The flats in the distance have been rebuilt. Bridges have been redesigned to better reflect those found in the English countryside. Players will also notice parked cars are now dotted around the map, adding more visual flavour.
First impressions are important, and the old caravan was an eye-sore. We’ve decided renovating it ourselves wouldn’t make sense in a game that features interior decoration, so we’ve adapted the caravan to be fully customisable by players.
Paint the walls, lay carpet, install furniture. Why not install a television to get the morning weather reports? It’s up to you!
4 NEW PROPERTIES TO PURCHASE
Players can now purchase 4 new properties from the Mitchell document in town. The properties are all in depilated states and require unique solutions to get back onto the market.
Special thanks to JohnFister for creating these properties, if you’ve created a property that you think would feature well in-game, reach out to us and we’ll take a look.
The end-game state, retirement option, is now available. Retiring will remove the caravan, hoarding and skip from the environment, whilst allow players to live in the home they’ve built. Upon sleeping in a retired property, players will reach the end-game screen, summarising the motivations and themes of the game.
Retirement isn’t permanent, though. Players have the option to return their property to the market, and resume living in the caravan.
