Reward(s)
It's Time to Innovate! is a Timed Quest in which the player has 192 hours to build and upgrade a total of 5 areas with assets leading up to technology-related rewards. It was released as part of an update on 11.15.2013.[1][2]


"Megapolis can become a center of innovation in software development! Create a unique internet search engine based on images."

"An innovation refers to a fundamental update to an old product or the creation of a fundamentally new one. Megapolis's scientists have offered to start developing a search engine that will work with images rather than words. This is currently one of the more pressing problems in search engine functionality.

"The residents beg the mayor: Create in image-based search engine

"We need to build a center for innovative technologies, a University of Information Technologies, and a system testing office. Specialists will create the development environment and invent an innovative system, and the mayor will present it to the public!"
