IT USED TO BE A JOB - NOW IT'S A GAME
Pizza Delivery: The Game, is an upcoming free release from Jenito that puts you right where you've always wanted to be: delivering pizzas. A first-person 3D experience, Pizza Delivery: The Game will find you running wildly around Polygon City, delivering precious, hot pizzas as you face insurmountable odds. Weirdo muggers, insane traffic, meteors from space and more will pepper the playing field, fighting you at every turn as you race against the clock to make your deliveries on time.
It's an experience that you'll find truly meaty.
ABOUT THE GAME
HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Pizza Delivery: The Game is what we would call a "leftovers project" here at Jenito - like a slice of cold pizza for breakfast the next morning. What we mean is this: the project was never meant to be a "game" in the commercial or even standard sense. It was conceived as a way for us to be able to learn about Unreal 4 and get the hang of this whole "3D development thing." As such, it's going to be unpolished. It will have bugs. You'll fall through the map every now and then. There's some pretty bad lighting and shadow problems. The entire map could use some optimization. It will not be the "best game you've ever played." But, like that delicious slice of cold pizza, it will still have its own charms, all without being the worst possible thing you can have for breakfast in the morning.
Some will probably think we're badmouthing our own product, but far too many developers today make lofty promises about games that can't possibly be fulfilled. We want to be upfront: this is just us having a little bit of fun as we learn about Unreal 4.
SO WHAT WILL THIS GAME BE?
It's going to be fun. It's going to be free. It's going to be a great waste of about 30 minutes to an hour of your time. You'll pull it out at parties and say, "look at this silly little game I got for free." It doesn't look bad, it won't run horribly, and it will provide amusement. It will definitely have lots of pizza. Honestly, that's what we set out to do with this project.
WHEN WILL IT BE AVAILABLE?
The game is still in the early stages of development, but considering its size and scope that doesn't mean we're looking at a long development cycle. We're hoping to have the game finished by April of 2017. That's not a promise or "set in stone" date, but that's our general goal and feeling right now.
Basically, it all depends on when the delivery gal/guy shows up with it.
STEAM - A GOOD PLACE TO DISTRIBUTE GAMES
We will be launching a Greenlight page for Pizza Delivery here very soon (we'd like to try and get some good video footage before launching). Again, this isn't goig to be a game we're trying to sell. But we still think Steam would be an awesome place to distribute the game to "the masses." You can also expect to find it at places like itch.io, GameJolt, etc.
HEY GUYS, I WANT TO HELP WHEN THE GREENLIGHT GOES LIVE!
