Dice, Dine, and Delight: Experience Singaporean Cuisine with Dice Game "Makan Mania"

Singapore, 21 Apr 2024 — Prepare for a gastronomic journey like no other with Makan Mania, a thrilling real-time game blending dice rolling action with strategic gameplay, all set in the vibrant backdrop of a bustling Singaporean hawker centre. Developed by Capital Gains Studio, Makan Mania invites players to immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of Singaporean food culture, in a quest to secure their favourite dishes.

Makan Mania, a Singaporean slang for "Food Craze," provides players with a captivating glimpse into the world of Singaporean culinary culture. The game offers a dice-chucking experience where players aim to secure their desired dishes amidst a bustling lunchtime crowd. Strategically reserving tables becomes crucial, sometimes necessitating players to force table swaps, all to secure local drinks and desserts such as Chendol and Teh-O as point multipliers and enhance their chances of success in this culinary showdown. Additionally, players must optimise their spending and dice usage by seeking out the best discounts, adding another layer of strategic depth to the game.

A standout feature of Makan Mania lies in its celebration of Singaporean flavours: Each dish is imbued with its own personality, reflecting the diverse tastes and cultural significance of Singaporean cuisine. From the comforting aroma of chicken rice to the bold flavours of laksa, every culinary delight is brought to life with human expressions, infusing the game with a whimsical charm.

"This game originated from a simple idea while we were pondering our lunch options at the hawker centre," remarked Xeo Lye, CEO of Capital Gains Studio. "We joked about how convenient it would be to have a dice game to decide what to eat for the day. And thus, Makan Mania was born."

Scheduled for launch on 21st April 2024, Makan Mania invites players of all ages to embark on a culinary adventure unlike any other. Prepare to roll the dice, strategise your moves, and emerge victorious as the ultimate champion of Makan Mania!
