Description

Open Bar is an award winning puzzle game for mobile devices. It's a premium game on iOS and free on Android.

History

Open Bar's development started back in December 2014. The concept gradually evolved for about a year; numerous prototypes were made and placeholder visuals were laughed at constantly. Back at the time, Maxime was working part-time at Ubisoft on Assassin's Creed Syndicate. By the end of August 2015, he left Ubisoft to fully concentrate on Open Bar. The game design was quickly nailed down and production started early October. The game was finished in December and released on iOS a month after. It was later selected for the PAX East Indie Showcase, and the Android version was released just in time for the event in April.
