Personally, we are a big fan of business simulators and grand strategy games, so you can expect this mixture. You won't have much micro babysitting, but a nice small game about managing the most important aspects of such a company in a fun way.
Also, we hope that the game will give some insights for young people about what they never will experience in their life: those beautiful oldie computers, that I loved so much when I was a youngster.
I'd like to build a player base early on. Please join my mailing list on my homepage. I will need beta testers in the coming months.
The planned release time is 2017 Q4.
I'd love to hear about your interest/ideas in the comment section.
