14 Days of Produce Wars! Day 13: Hideout

“14 Days of Produce Wars” features a new gameplay video from the beta version of our upcoming XBLIG title Produce Wars each day for two straight weeks, and developer commentary on that stage.

Dev Commentary

Hideout is one of the most interesting stages in the game. There are literally hundreds of ways to approach it. Each and every time a new person tests this stage for us, we see a different method to completion. It’s one of the reasons we decided to feature it in a gameplay trailer: versatility.

And that’s what I’d like to talk about here. In Produce Wars, you get to choose the order of your special shots (fruit types) in order to come up with a strategy to attack a structure or adapt to a situation (unlike Angry Birds, which has a preset order of birds you get to launch).

It’s a double-edge really, because on one hand the player is given more creative liberty in their strategy. On the other hand, it’s been challenging for us as game designers to balance the difficulty of every stage so that it isn’t underwhelmingly easy.
