Social City secretly ups the price on Mandatory Caffeination
In Social City, factories are a player's major source of income. Depending on what a player chooses to manufacture, completion times and rewards would vary. But yesterday, the game came up with two great ideas that offer players options to increase production speed for a little bit of effort or real world cash.
The free option is called the Motivational Poster, an item that needs to be solicited from other Social City players via Facebook wall posts. This item boosts the speed of manufacture by 20%. The cash option is called Mandatory Caffeination, allows players to instantly complete production, and originally cost only 1 City Buck.
Yes, I say "originally" because the cost was quietly increased to 2 City Bucks within the last 24 hours. You can easily see this by comparing screenshots from yesterday's factory information and today's (see top image).
