It’s brilliant! It’s so fun to play and I think it has a lot of potential.
One thing I noticed is that nothing prevents you from preparing the pizzas in between days. So in practice you could bake a bunch of pizzas completely, then start a new day and just serve the pizzas to the clients.
I came up with a couple of ideas that might help with this:
- The kitchen area should be restricted during “night time”, and maybe the team should be instructed to do some other work (like cleaning, shoppinng, etc).
- Pizzas should have a lifespan (in every state, from dough to finished pizza)
- When a new day starts, all pizzas should be destroyed
Another suggestion would be to introduce some chaos events to the game. Something like ovens failing, machines breaking, sauce spilling and having to deal with it. That kind of stuff really puts teamplay to the test. This events could be fired randomly or maybe a “skills system” could be implemented.
I’m not quite sure about aesthetics. I think it has a well defined style and it holds toghether as one piece, which is good. But I think it could still benefit from some texturing and lighting while staying in the same style.
I hope this helps! I really enjoyed playing Vortelli’s!
