The food cannon is a game mechanic we added where once a day (a day being 6 minutes of real time) you have to go on lunch break. During this break we have implemented various minigames for the player to experience to break up the gameplay a bit. As you can see below, there’s a cannon shooting hotdogs at you. Your goal is to grab them and eat as many as you can in order to increase your tip modifier.
The model of the food cannon was based off of those elementary/high school TV carts that your teacher would roll in whenever there was a video to be watched. Every kid looked forward to that moment. When the giant 500lbs 25″ TV rolled through the door and the teacher would play one of those really old educational VHS tapes.
