We announced Shooty Fruity’s hub area – the staff room – last week. This is where budding gun toting shopping clerks can go between the shooting/job simulation action to chill out, unlock weapons, customise and test their load outs, and check on the progress of their glittering career.
In the first of a series of posts about the game’s key features ahead of launch on the 19th December, we thought we’d go into a bit of detail on what you can expect to do between all the shooting, scanning and serving.
Everything Begins at the Locker
The locker is where you go to choose your shift. Select the time card for todays preferred task and off you go. Don’t forget to check your objectives for the shift on the back of the card to gain those illusive stars.
Once you’ve selected your mission you can customise your load out here too. Not sure what to pick? Strategic selection to match the fruit you're fighting is a good start (we’ll go into this in a couple of weeks) but if you’re still not sure you can always give them a trial run first…
Practice Makes Perfect at the Shooting Gallery
Pull the big lever at the locker to reveal the staff room’s shooting range. Perfect for testing out the latest additions to your arsenal and there’s even scoring, for people who feel only competing in levels isn’t enough.
Spend Your Hard Earned Juice at the Vendomatic
New weapons are purchased at the Vendomatic within the staff room. Head on over and if you’ve got the juice – the in-game currency gained from shooting fruit – just type in the number and voila your new weapon will be available in the locker!
Check out the High Scores on the Arcade Machine
Two arcade machines give you access to Shooty Fruity’s leaderboards and options. Chuck a quarter into the machine and use the joystick to check out how you’re performing in your job against your ‘colleagues’, or customise your options.
Showcase Your Achievements
Leaderboards simply not enough for you to show off your glittering supermarket career? Various trophy cabinets display all your key achievements and you can check more detailed stats on the staff room noticeboard.
Want to take a moment to yourself? Well, feel free to hang around, have a cup of coffee or play frisbee with a plate. You so deserve it!
