iOS/Android Companion App UNLOCKED, Orccon 2019, and a new Stretch Goal!
6 more days!
That's all that remains until the Rival Restaurants Kickstarter is officially over! It's hard to believe that there's less than 1 week to go... where has the time gone?! Speaking of time...
Variable Timer Companion App UNLOCKED
The Rival Restaurants Companion App has been unlocked! We're still in the process of writing and developing the app, but here are some of the features we're planning to add:
- Variable Timer: Rival Restaurants comes with a 1-minute sand timer that's used during the most exciting phase of the game: Buy and Barter. With the companion app's variable timer, you'll be able to adjust that time to match your group's size and/or preferences. Some players prefer to have more time to get deeper into the trading aspect, while others want less time to crank the tension to the max! With the variable timer, you can try both.
- Audible Alarm: During the hustle and bustle of Buy and Barter, sometimes it's hard to keep track of when the sand timer is up. But with the companion app, everyone will hear an audible alarm signifying that the round is over.
- Links: The app will contain direct links to our How to play video, gameplay FAQ's, chef bios/backstories, and more.
What features would you like to see in the app?
We will be at Orccon (Strategicon) this weekend (Feb 15 - Feb 17) at LAX!
If you're in the LA area and want to try Rival Restaurants, please come play with us on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday! Tickets are available here.
