Greetings, πŸ‘‹

As we turn the calendar to another month of development, we’re excited to share the latest updates on our journey.

Lunar New Year Festival πŸ₯³

First off, we are pumped to announce our participation in the 2024 Lunar New Year Festival on Steam China, all thanks to Hawthorne Games!

Don’t miss this great opportunity to check out some of the best games coming out of the region.

Meet the Workers

Keeping the introductions rolling, this week’s spotlight is on Rajesh, another potential worker in your food truck business.

Hover Menus

Our latest implementation of hover menus helps to showcase more data in a visually appealing and easy to digest manner.

Now, without clicking into a locality, you can see important information about the locality and your stands, like the population size of the main segment, income earned by your stand, and lots more.

To manage visual load, many data points will be hidden by default, only revealed when you hover on their related icons.

Top Bar & Pathing Improvements 🚢

Some improvements we made to the top bar and customer pathing include:

  • Increased avatar and locality icon sizes.
  • Animated weather and temperature buttons.
  • A new dropdown menu for the population.
  • Better differentiation between current and forecasted weather in the weather dropdown.
  • Improved customer pathing to prevent customers “walking through” stands.

Bug Fixes πŸ›πŸ”¨

During the week, we caught a bug that caused a stand’s inventory and cash balance to remain fixed while it raked in sales.

Upon digging further, we discovered the sneaky bug was linked to our latest feedback updates. We’ve fixed it, and business is right back on track!

Before we wrap this up, I must say we’re enjoying the Strategy/Management/Tycoon demos in Steam Next Fest.

News Tower and, of course, the wildly anticipated Millennia have particularly caught our eye. What about you? Have any demos stolen your heart yet?

Share your top picks and why they stood out to you. We’d love to hear all about it.

Reply to this email πŸ“§ or chat with us on Discord. πŸ’ͺ

And that’s a wrap for today. Cheers πŸ₯‚

Don’t forget to Wishlist the game if you haven’t!

Live Long and Prosper πŸ‘‹,
Kunal & Team
