Pizza Connection was an economic simulation/pizza tycoon game released on PC in 1994, where you could use your business savvy to bring your pizza restaurant to success or failure. It was followed by Pizza Connection 2 in 2001 with upgraded graphics, controls and pizza toppings. The games featured many great aspects, such as recipe options, location priorities, staff management, competitive sabotage, and restaurant atmosphere.
Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Gentlymad have announced on Steam that Pizza Connection 3 will be coming soon, with a possible release date slated for 2018. Just from the images released, it is clear that we are in for a tasty treat with improved graphics and controls once again.
Here's the menu we are teased with:
No one's invented your favourite pizza yet? Vegan, straight vegetarian or meat with added meat? Create your own pizzas using the legendary Pizza Creator and over 75 different ingredients!
The 12 mission single player campaign lets you rise step-by-step from a simple pizza baker in Rome to the world's greatest pizza mogul.
From Sydney to Berlin to Washington DC: Conquer the world's greatest metropolises with your own pizza chain and discover their unique tastes!
Customize your restaurants the way you want: Floorplan, furniture, personnel, interior decorating. There is a little interior decorator in every pizza baker.
Use market analyses and sophisticated marketing strategies to reach your customers with targeted advertising.
Get rid of your competitors by using particularly spicy ingredients such as sabotage and bribery.
The free game mode offers an alternative to the campaign rich in its diversity. You yourself can determine a wide range of parameters such as startup capital, the number of residents, competitors and much more, allowing you to create your own challenges.
