Greetings, 👋

It’s great to catch up again! 😉Today, we are taking a deeper look at how Inventory management works. Inventory management is a crucial tool in securing the success of your food truck business.

Effective inventory control enhances operations and positively impacts your financial results. 🎯 Accurately predicting and meeting the demand for burgers 🍔 and drinks 🍹 is a must-have skill for every player seeking success.

The Recipe and Inventory Connection 🔗

Your recipe determines the minimum inventory you need to stock. A recipe rich in lettuce, for instance, requires a larger lettuce stockpile than usual. 🥗

Also, when testing a new recipe, it’s essential to have ample ingredients. A swift inventory check before the start of the day helps prevent stock shortages.

Understanding Demand⛅🌧️

Various in-game elements can assist you in forecasting demand trends. Weather is significant – sunny days draw more customers outdoors, while rainy days mean less customers coming out.

The economic situation also influences the outdoor population size. Many or fewer customers are willing to come out and spend depending on if the economy is in a growth phase or a downturn.

You can read more about how the economy impacts population size here.

Take note of events such as outdoor activities or national celebrations. They can increase your customer base and during these periods, ramping up your inventory can significantly boost profits and enhance your food truck’s reputation. 🚚🌟

Your stand’s location also matters – some spots naturally draw more foot traffic. 📍 Apply these insights to adjust your inventory and witness a noticeable improvement in your food truck’s efficiency and profitability.

Striking a Balance with Financial Insights

Identifying the ideal stock level is key to your business’s performance. Overstocking may seem like a smart move, but it ties up resources that could be used in other areas, like marketing or upgrades. Conversely, understocking may lead to missed sales, affecting your revenue.

Reviewing financial reports provides valuable data on sales figures and cost of goods sold (COGS). These insights are crucial in spotting trends and achieving the optimal inventory level.

Real-world Business Strategies 💼🎮

We’ve aimed to reflect real-world business strategies within the gameplay. For instance, balancing between overstocking and understocking is a real-world issue food trucks encounter when trying to boost profitability.

Also, just like real businesses, the game requires demand forecasting by considering sales data, weather, and location to determine daily stock levels.

By integrating these elements into Business Heroes, we’ve crafted a simulation that echoes the strategic thinking required in real-life businesses, optimizing operations and maximizing profits. 🌟

And that’s a wrap for today, Cheers 🥂

Greetings, 👋

In this episode, we explore the exciting fusion of nostalgia and modern design in Business Heroes. Imagine a collaboration  between Lemonade Tycoon 2, The Sims 1, and Capitalism. That’s Business Heroes – a landscape of strategic opportunities wrapped in a retro-inspired interface.

Let’s dive right in.

Design Decisions

Designing strategy games is always a balancing act between complexity and accessibility. In our case, we chose to spotlight the management aspect over extensive 3D navigation and typical tycoon-style building.

Our goal?

To present you with a comprehensive overview of data for effective decision-making, echoing the true essence of our influential predecessors.

We also introduced the Dashboard UI, a single location where you can manage operations and make those crucial decisions, to maximize efficiency and ensure no one gets lost in the labyrinth of decision-making screens.

We, however, continue to refine the UI guided by player feedback.

Visually, we went minimalist with Neumorphism, a design style that quickly helps players identify interactive elements.

Character Art

For the character art, We aimed to portray them in a modern style that players could easily relate to. And for this task, we relied on digital caricaturist extraordinaire, Xi.

Xi is known for his ability to extract the essential features of a face. He then presents these features in a sometimes humorously exaggerated style, crafting recognizable and irresistibly engaging character art.

The result is a gallery of characters that, while echoing the nostalgia of classic games, exude a contemporary appeal.

Environment Art

Sehar, our environment artist, had the formidable task of transforming real-life references into a mesmerizing 2D environment. The goal was to achieve a seamless blend of modern design and classic tycoon charm.

She successfully married these elements, creating a vibrant, appealing environment reminiscent of the games we all loved growing up.

This philosophy of intertwining old and new was also applied to our stands and customer segments.

By merging elements of nostalgia with modern features, we’ve created an immersive experience that seamlessly weaves between the treasured gaming memories of the past and the intriguing possibilities of the present.

Or at least we hope so. 😄

And that’s a wrap for today, Cheers 🥂
