Campaign Effect

The 6 regions you can select each add a different cost and hype value to the campaign, also contingent upon the size, set with the size slider. A campaign adds a hype value to the product in development, which boosts the sales upon its release. The hype value is dependent upon what regions you selected and how large the campaign is.
