Sneak Peek: No More Badges!

Hey Everyone!

So last week we mentioned that we are doing away with Badges.

We decided to do this because the badges as a whole had several problems…

First, they were a secondary game element that didn’t impact the game, outside of bonus tips and tickets. This created a disconnect with some players who would end up never even opening the Badge Section. It also didn’t help that you could only see the Badge Section after you started a day, then went into the menu.

Secondly, the badge experience felt more technical than fun, with the menu itself feeling more like a spreadsheet.

For awhile now, we knew we could do better. Our goal was to make it more engaging, fun, accessible, and meaningfully tied into the gameplay. So with that being said, we would like to introduce our brand new Sticker Section!

Now you can collect tons of colorful Papa Louie Stickers. As with previous badges, you will find some classic tasks like getting 5 Blue Ribbons or unlocking all the Christmas toppings. However, we have kicked it up a notch with more specific tasks and challenges that will allow you more freedom to decide which sticker you want to earn next.

You can easily view your Stickers before and during your work day with the new and improved menu bar. Other sections are available from the start of the day like the Customer Section. Which brings us to the second HUGE part of the new Stickers system…

We have completely redesigned the Customer Section in Papa’s Bakeria to incorporate some big BIG changes. Now, every customer that arrives has a three specific stickers assigned to them.

And here is where things get really exciting…

When you earn all three of those stickers, you unlock a brand new outfit for that customer!

On top of all the customers getting cleaned up, every customer now has a brand new outfit that you can unlock by earning Stickers! So if you really want to see Wally in his fishing gear, you better remember to complete the “Wallyberry” task!

Once a new outfit is unlocked, you can switch between the two in the Customer Section. Getting tired of Wally’s blue bucket hat? Problem solved by simply going into your customer section and switching him back to his classic look (Style A).

We’ve also included a helpful ticket button on the Customer profile so that you can quickly view their current order. On the left-hand side of the Customer Section, you can scroll through all the customers you have unlocked. You can also now sort them by name, arrival, by stars, and by how many stickers they have. On a sidenote, the customer pictures on the left are not the new “cleaned up” versions. We are still working on those.

Now you’ll notice below Wally’s name is Style: A, B, and H. Style H stands for Holiday, and in this scenario, Wally doesn’t have an alternate style for any holiday and it is grayed out. But for customers who do have an alternate Holiday style, you’ll be able to view it there. Take for example Willow and her spooky Halloween costume!

That’s it for today’s sneak peek. The Sticker Section and all the outfits that come along with it has been a huge undertaking… but it is sooooooo worth it!

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of Papa’s Bakeria!!

Sneak Peek: Build Station Part 2

Hey Everyone!

So lets begin where we last left off in the Build Station. You just finished filling up the pie with Apples and Pecans. After that, the filling machine will slide away, and the bin will open up revealing Crusts for the top of the pie.

You will notice on the ticket, that the order calls for a “Vent Style” top crust. So you will drag the vent crust to the pie, making sure that you line it up just right before placing it.

Once you have dropped it onto the pie, the excess crust will be removed, and the pie will slide over to the Bake Station.

Now you won’t always have to put a top crust on the pie. If that is the case, you’ll simply need to click on the green button to skip this step and send it off to the Bake Station. Some customers may want something different like a Streusel crust, in which case you would pick up the scooper and sprinkle it onto the pie. When it’s finished pouring out, the pie will automatically slide off to the Bake Station.

So that’s pretty much it for the Build Station. We will be saving the Bake Station preview for another time because next week we need to talk about a major change coming to Papa’s Bakeria…

We are getting rid of the Badges…

WHAT?!?!?!?!???!?! WHY????? We know that sounds crazy, but you’ll just have to wait until next week to find out why!

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of Papa’s Bakeria!!

Sneak Peek: Build Station Part 1

Hey Everyone!

Usually when we preview a Gameria, we save the stations for last.  But this week, we wanted to break from that tradition and show off part of the Build Station in Papa’s Bakeria.

After you have taken down your customers order, you’ll first need to head to the Build Station. A panel door will slide open, revealing your available pie crusts…

The bottom box on the ticket denotes which pie crust your customer would like. You’ll then grab the correct crust from the deep container and drag it into your pie pan. Once the crust is resting securely in the pan, the door will automatically close and the pan will slide up and into position.

From there, a large filling tube will lower, along with a fill gauge and topping buttons. You will notice on the ticket that it calls for 75% Apple and 25% Pecan. You will first click on the apple button and press the green “Pour” button. You will want to stop as soon as the bar reaches the third line.

After that, you will choose the Pecan button, and fill it up to the top.

Once the pie is completely filled, it will move onto the second phase of the Build Station, but we must save that for a future post. Although it seems like a lot of steps, the actual process is fast and smooth!
