Development Update September 2019

Hey everyone

So I thought I would let you know what's been going on, since I haven't put much up about the upcoming projects. Our steering groups have been involved (Beta Testers and Premium Members) in planning how we continue the game.

I will keep this as short as possible, phase one is a re-skin of the game. This is for several reasons and has several perks. I have now completed the solo activities (the stuff under the "Actions" menu here), and am working through Co-Operatives and the various other pages which need to be rebuilt.

The second phase is a couple of new features, to enable a round-based style of play. The length of the rounds, the differences between rounds (such as bonuses and such) are still being discussed and considered.

The third phase is to continue development of new features, in new faster ways. Additionally, preparing the game to be developed into apps on Android and iOS, to open us up to new players, and easier gameplay on mobile.

Personally, I think the new theme is looking really good and coming along very nicely - but don't take my word for it, hopefully our Beloved Beta Crew will jump on here and tell you all about it :)

More updates as they're available

Vicious Murder Updates

Hey all

Sorry I didn't get this out last night when I wanted to! Half of the UK lost internet connection, so I had nothing until this morning.

I have now patched murder to have more impact on the player being shot. I will leave the specifics to your imagination, but it definitely holds more of a sting now

Enjoy! ;)

Happy Birthday to us!

Hey everyone

I just wanted to post a super quick one, to wish the game a happy birthday. Ironically, it's my birthday tomorrow, about a year ago, in the early hours of the morning. I pushed version 1.0 of the game live.

What a journey it's been, thank you to the 1,500+ people who have registered and played, to everybody who's been involved in the community. Long may it continue!

Development updates coming soon. But not tomorrow. Tomorrow I will be doing nothing but celebrating.

Much loves all

Game Update Mid August 2019

Hey everyone

So I wanted to put a quick news post up to let you know what I have been working on recently.


  • When a player with many properties (more than 3) is murdered, the amount of messages to Discord is limited. A single Discord notification will be sent, this will prevent issues as we have seen today, whereby Discord rate limits our bot in the channels and some kills did not complete

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved the issue with obituaries not showing correctly
  • Garage repair bills now display as expected
  • Leaderboard columns have been swapped around as they were displaying incorrectly

Future Plans

Thank you to everyone to participated in the discussions around these features in our Discord channel

  • I am working on car auctions, to allow autonomous trading of vehicles
  • Drug dealing - a new solo activity, where the drugs you are holding can be solo
  • Reskin - this is primarily for usability purposes, including adding a day and night mode switcher
  • Federal Government - this will randomly target one of the wealthiest players in the game, where Interpol will launch investigations to disrupt the economy

And finally, about bonds and premium membership

This is something which has also come up in our community conversations recently. I want to confirm a couple of things; firstly, bonds are not necessarily being phased out as such. However, they are no longer available for purchase. There is a chance that bonds will be issued to premium members, which brings me onto my next point;

I will soon be making an announcement around premium membership of the game, including early bird discounts. The announcement will cover the pricing and perks, as well as the ability to sign up for the early bird discounts.

With that, I'm done for the night
