Game Idea #11

This week’s idea is based on a sort of bread that is very common for breakfast in Turkey (and some other countries): the Simit. IMHO it is a casual game and therefore suited well for the game portals of major local ISP’s in Turkey, Greece and all other countries that have a simit tradition.

Game Idea #11

Simit Tycoon

Simit Tycoon is a business management simulation in which you start as a street vendor and work your way up to the ownership of a simit empire.

An excellent breakfast! That's what you're going to serve people in Simit Tycoon in order to get rich!

An excellent breakfast... that's what you're going to serve the folks in Simit Tycoon in order to become rich!

Simit Tycoon has various stages. In the first stage the player controls a street vendor and must select the right time and place for selling his simits. As long as the player sells well, she will make a profit. Wİth the profit she can buy new baskets. She will also have a chance to put money aside for future investment.

The ambitious street vendor!

Stage 1: The ambitious street vendor!

In the second stage, the player will have enough money to buy a simit selling spot from the local administration. This will increase the income significantly. The player will be able to own several of such selling spots.

The roles are reversed. Now the customer is coming to you.

Stage 2: The roles are reversed. Now the customer is coming to you.

In the final stage, the player will start to establish her imperium with so-called Simitsarai’s.

Your first Simit Sarai! From here you go for world domination!

Stage 3: Your first Simit Sarai! From here you go for world domination!

In each new stage, the player will play on a new map: as a street vendor she plays on a city district level and picks the streets she wants to walk in to find people to sell simits.  As a selling spot owner she plays on the city map level and arranges the other types of food that she presents together with the simits. She also tries to buy other spots. Finally as the Simitsarai emperor, she plays on the world map level, by default owning the business rights to her own country, but being able to expand into other cities in other countries. On this level she searches for suitable stores in various cities in various countries, specifies themes and food palette, hires workers etc.

You've turned the simit into an irresistible icon!

Final Stage: You've turned the simit into the ultimate icon of our age!

Simit Tycoon presents the players with one of the oldest myths, that of working your way up from a Mr(s). Nothing to a billionaire. It will present the players with entertaining puzzles and problems and will help her to spend a few fun minutes. It’II be a sweet challenge that won’t get too long and serious.
