Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Gamex studio is now about a month in Early Access with SimPocalypse on Steam, and releasing additional updates to the game like crazy.

Gamex Studio, developer and publisher of  Managerial-strategy civilization simulator game, set in a post-apocalyptic ambiance, now challenges players of Steam with its game to master it


What is the crucial challenge to overcome in SimPocalypse?
Player decisions and managerial, leadership skills matter. At least in SimPocalypse.
The world was torn apart by a nuclear war, leaving almost no survivors behind. A few lucky survivors managed to stay alive, now urging to find food, water, and other basic resources to survive the post-apocalyptic world.
A player is set as a leader of a small group of survivors, who tend to stick around the shelters. The group now counts on the player’s skills to overcome the famine and lead the civilization back into a prosperous world, filled with new advancements that can benefit the civilization, while establishing a strong army to expand the reach of the settlement, fighting other groups for extra limited resources and world domination.

What is still coming in Early Access?
Directors of Gamex Studio, said:
“While we are a small team, we have big plans for the game and are giving our all to make it the best game we possibly can. We are focusing on expanding the length of the game while trying to keep it fun and interesting to play at various game stages. Modernizing the UI/UX and work on a complete graphical overhaul of the game while still in Early Access is also one of our big tasks planned in the following months.”

Gamex studio recently released a public RoadMap for players and Press to keep track of the game’s development, updates, and to follow other bigger updates coming out in the next weeks and months. The game is currently available to play for Windows, Linux, but they plan to prepare a build for Mac as well.

The next updates coming out are segmented into a few bigger groups/patches, the first one called ‘Combat Rework’, where they will be updating the graphics, adding new battleground elements, improving the UI/UX on this part of the game. The next planned update is ‘Nuclear’ – which will probably make the biggest difference in players’ eyes, as the whole UI/UX will be updated, with a complete graphical overhaul. They also intend to add Steam achievements, introduce more Quality of Life and Automation features, and rework the Player onboarding process.

But this is still not everything that they plan to develop while in Early Access, as they tend to work also on the ambiance music, extra sound effects, adding a new core “currency” to the game – ‘Civilization points’ while making the game extra interesting with various challenges & Game difficulties.
And the last planned as of now – Mobile adjustments, to be able to possibly offer the game on Mobile somewhere in the future.

Key Features & Goals to master:
– Survive the post-apocalyptic times
(Establish strong fundamentals for your settlement to survive)

– Rebuild the pillars of modern civilization
(Recovery of a modern social, economic and military structure is crucial to start thriving instead of just surviving)

– Manage your citizens to create a powerful establishment
(survive different events through time and grow the empire despite any challenges and threats it faces.)

– Choose your path with a massive research tree and Advance your civilization to new heights
(Will you succeed in global expansion or bring your civilization extinct?)

– Trade the Global Market to your advantage
(Manipulate and trade the market to become a global tycoon)

– Dominate & Control the Post-apocalyptic World!
(Will you choose military pressure, use your wealth, or maybe a more diplomatic route to world domination?)

PAGCOR SEEKS GCG APPROVAL TO IMPLEMENT SALARY STEP INCREMENT

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation said it has asked the Governance Commission for GOCCs (GCG) for approval of salary step increments based on employees’ length of service to correct distortions caused by its new Compensation and Position Classification System (CPCS).

In a letter to GCG Chairperson Atty. Marius Corpus dated February 22, 2024, PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Alejandro H. Tengco said the PAGCOR Board of Directors has approved the implementation of step increments but it needs GCG approval.

“Parallel to the thrust of the PAGCOR Board of Directors to prioritize the welfare of the employees, the PAGCOR Board approved the Implementation of Step Increment based on Length of Service, subject to GCG’s review and approval,” he said in the letter.

The PAGCOR chief said the step increment is only the first of many appeals that the agency plans to lodge with the GCG so that PAGCOR employees may enjoy competitive salaries and benefits comparable to other revenue-generating GOCCs.

PAGCOR received its Authority to Implement the CPCS on January 31 this year. However, majority of the employees were dismayed to see that their take-home pay decreased when they received their salaries on the first payday under CPCS on February 15, 2024.

The CPCS also caused distortions in pay scale since all employees were reverted to Pay Step 1 regardless of their years of service. This means that a new employee in a certain position gets the same salary as someone who has been in the same position for 15 years or more.

Chairman Tengco said the Step Increment appeal is only the first of many which the agency plans to lodge with the GCG to remedy the overall decrease in employees’ take home pay, especially for those who occupy the lowest rungs in the organization.

“We hope that the GCG will positively respond to our appeal so that all tenured PAGCOR employees will not feel shortchanged, and instead receive the compensation that they deserve under the bounds of the law,” he added.

A provision under the CPCS implementing guidelines states that “one step increment shall be granted to qualified personnel for every three years of continuous satisfactory service in the present position.”

Records show that as of December 31, 2023, a total of 7,057 PAGCOR personnel or 72.60% of the agency’s workforce have been in service for more than three years in their respective positions.
