The object of the game is to mount successful campaigns and eventually improve your staff office. When planning a campaign, you will need to find the right mix of target market, subject, and item. Once you decide on your strategy, the campaign will run for in-game 20 days.
The better your campaign, the more followers your office gains. Your reward at the end of the campaign is determined by the amount of followers you attract; so choose wisely.
To further improve your performance, it’s crucial that you hire the right staff for your office. Pay attention to each of your employees five stats: Energy, Creativity, Content, Artwork, and Outreach. Every stat except Energy can be raised through training, so try and look for workers with innately high energy.
To earn additional funds for your office, you can hold up to three donation drives per year. The amount of money you earn from these events is directly tied to your follower count.
The game ends when your office’s cash reserves are depleted.
