    You have no idea how excited I am to be able to announce this! :D



    Cerulean Games has officially partnered with J&Ds Foods, makers of the delicious Bacon Salt, Bacconaise and more, to bring Bacon Salt themed items to the upcoming social game Tic-Tac-Bacon: Xtra Crispy! Bacon Salt themed gamepieces and powerups will be available for players to use against their friends in different games.

    Tic-Tac-Bacon is a social freemium game where players will be able to compete against up to three of their friends in modern, food-themed incarnations of many classic board games. We've got Checkers, Othello, Baconship, of course Tic-Tac-Toe, and many other games and variants such as Baconator and Tic-Tac-Toe Xtreme! We have developed a custom server solution called Nimbus to control the online social aspects. Nimbus allows a Unity game to connect to multiple social networks at once. This means you could be playing the game on your iPhone logged in through GameCenter, against a second player who is on Facebook, against a third player who is on an Android device through Open Feint, and a fourth player who is playing anonymously without logging in. We have been working on Tic-Tac-Bacon: Xtra Crispy and Nimbus since last September, and will be going live with public betas of the game and service quite soon. To support the multi-platform release, we built a morphic UI system, that can dynamically reposition its elements based on the resolution. This has saved us a massive amount of development and design time on the UI - we design it once, and it works on everything.

    Here are a few screenshots of the game running in Unity on iPhone (and one on OS X)

    More Tic-Tac-Bacon will be posted as we get closer to having a public beta available for all you Unity developers to sink your teeth into!

    I'm not really sure if this thread belongs in works in progress, it's pretty much just a press release about finding a corporate partner. Can you update the OP to talk about the game, what are the mechanics, please show 'Work in Progress'.

    Stramit - I've added more information about the game, including some screenshots. I hope this makes it feel less like a press release and more like an announcement for a work in progress. :)
