Posted by Luigi On April - 27 - 2011 Comments Off

Those executives and their secrets… It’s getting so it’s hard to leak anything to the public anymore.

At any rate, things should be more or less back in order this time next week. You would have my apologies, but I’m still trying to discern the robots from the rest of you. Hm… Maybe I should put out a bounty…

Hello! I’m Dr. Wright. You must be the new Mayor! Let’s practice our city building techniques by building a Power Plant and then adding Residential, Commercial, and Industrial zones. Next, connect all zones with power and then add roads for the residents to travel on.
