February 2021 Condo Contest

This month, we’re running a “Night Out (or In)” themed condo contest. This contest will end on March 1st, 2021. First place winner will take home at least 1,000,000 units, and all participants may be rewarded 75,000 units! You can read the details here.

Accessibility Suggestions

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.

Ayyy that condo looking mighty fine and fit af

I’d sooner take that over the stock/default condo

I can’t wait to see the finished product

That condo reminds me of a Beach villa.

I’ll add that to my “must buy” list in TU. Farming those units pays off!

“Condo: Villa” is actually the perfect name for it. It’s more descriptive than “Beach” or “Beach House” (since those also apply to the default condo). Who knows, maybe they’ll use that name
