Q: Why the name Brewtoon Tycoon?
A: We have been really digging the rubber hose style animation trend that Cuphead kickstarted. We did quite a bit of research into the time period and wanted a name that would fit the theme and clearly portray what the game is about.
Q: What platforms is the application available on?
A: Brewtoon Tycoon is a mobile game that is available on both iOS and Android.
Q: How long has the app been in development for?
A: The concept was conceived about nine months ago, and now is ready to be born into the world!
Q: Why did you choose to make a beer brewing app?
A: One of our most successful games previous to Brewtoon was a clicker tycoon style mining game. We wanted to create another tycoon style game and asked ourselves, what is a theme that we can really get passionate about that also gets everyone else excited? The answer seemed clear, beer!
Q: What other apps have you designed and how long has ActOp been running for?
A: We have been having a great time building all sort of games for the past two years. It is a lot of fun coming up with new ideas and creating fully realized games out of nothing. It’s a magical industry to be a part of.
Q: What features are you hoping to integrate into the app over the coming months?
A: We know that our home brewer fans would love to be able to create their very own recipes and hope to make a place in the app for this feature at some point. We also want to expand on the storylines of some of the visitors to the tasting room and provide a little more depth there.
Q: So you’ve probably brewed hundreds of thousands of beers on the app, have you done any home-brewing? If so, how did it go?!
A: Currently we are fans more than we are crafters. We love learning about the process, and of course, helping to sample the creations.
Q: What’s your favourite style of beer?
A: There are four of us on the team and we all have our own individual favourites! We are spread out location-wise and our founder is lucky enough to live near Russian River Brewing Co and takes advantage yearly of their limited time Pliny the Younger, a triple IPA. Our artist also lives near Deschutes and enjoys their Black Butte Porter. A wheat IPA is always a hit with all of us.
Q: You are in a supermarket, in the Beer aisle of course, what would you buy?
A: We love trying new varieties of beers and especially taking advantage of seasonal limited-availability options.
Q: Any future app ideas?
A: We always have a million different ideas floating around. Once a week we take time to chat together about game ideas and talk about which ones are getting us most excited.
