I didn't have as much dev time as I hoped for last week, because I caught a cold. I am feeling way better now though!

In the last devlog I described how we envision that players will be able to manage different contexts like their company or an office, like the governor's.

This week I rolled the sleeves up and got to work, implementing that feature. Although I am not done yet, there is already something to see:

That is the new context selector. In this example, it currently shows two entries: one for the company I am playing and one for the governor's office on Ebisu - Gibson. These contexts are now being added and removed automatically when creating or liquidating a company as well as when becoming governor or when leaving the office.

This week I will continue to work on this feature. From an ease of use standpoint it is important, that we encode the current context in the URL, similarly how we do it with screens. That way it will be possible to have multiple browser views or tabs for multiple screen / context combinations.
