    Hello,

    We are really excited to announce our first project: flavourit - my cookbook.
    It was developed with Unity. Hope you like it :)

    hahaha!(I'm not bullying) very interesting! really, i was expecting a game about cooking, but is rather uncommon to see helpful applications made with unity. Very original concept! I'll not test the app because I don't like cooking :D! but your video showed enough to judge! congratulations! your app looks very professional.:cool:

    Why did you decide to use unity for this? I find working with menus very tedious. How did you approach the project? Looks very professional indeed, good job.

    @earrgames: thank you :)

    @joni.giuro: thank you! It all started as a really small project, my girlfriend had this small idea and it went bigger and bigger. ;) I come from the game industry and working with unity is just so intuitive for me, and with unity we had a first prototype done very quickly. Thanks to the possibility of extending your projects with nice plugins. Which really saves you a lot of development time. So, for a two man indie dev studio it was just the right choice for us.

    Did you use anything particular for the UI? NGUI?

    I second Joni. What did you guys use to create your UI? Was it a custom made system? It looks really slick!

    We used the excellent DF-GUI(daikon forge) system. With some additional custom changes. I think we couldn't have done it without it. Especially the editor was a challenge because of the different z-ordering stuff going on.
