Enjoy the December Edition of the Kolibri Games Newsletter. This is where we review the events of the past weeks and keep you updated on recent company and product milestones.
December was an exciting month for us! We officially launched our newest title, Idle Restaurant Tycoon. We had soft-launched the game on Google Play in several countries since October and had gathered overwhelmingly positive reviews from thousands of players, so we were excited to finally share it with the rest of the world. We’re beyond proud of this game – we developed it fully remotely, from first prototype to soft-launch. With Idle Restaurant Tycoon, we committed to a completely new look, a 3D isometric art style. All of our developers, artists, game designers and testers went out of their way to adapt to this challenge and create a game that both new and old players will love.
Over on the Kolibri Games blog, we published two posts with insights about the development of Idle Restaurant Tycoon – “From Spreadsheet to Prototype”, about how we set our teams up for the work on new games and initial phases of development and “Let’s Build a Restaurant”, about how we went from a prototype to a shippable game, and some of the art and game design choices that we made along the way.
This month, our Idle Miner Tycoon team worked hard on implementing a number of features and offers as a result of successful A/B tests. Also, Santa is back in Idle Miner Tycoon! Due to high demand from players, the team has implemented another lucky draw feature with Santa Super Manager as the main prize to help out in the mines.
