About the game: Kitchen Nightmares: Match & Renovate
Designed for mobile platforms including Android and iOS, match-3-based game Kitchen Nightmares: Match & Renovate is the second collaboration between All3Media International and mobile game developer Qiiwi Games. Players join Chef Tony Regoli to save misguided chefs and their crumbling restaurants from the brink of failure. With great expertise and fine taste, Chef Tony Regoli steps up to restore the most shocking venues in town. It’s up to the player and him to set things right!
These restaurant owners are in dire need of a wakeup call from their Kitchen Nightmares! Only one chef can lift these flawed and stubborn individuals and help turn their failing restaurants into successful businesses!
Based on the hit TV Series, Kitchen Nightmares is an exciting and dynamic puzzle game with colorful characters from all walks of life. Each chef that you encounter has a unique personality and represents different cuisines.
Since June 2021, the game has only been available in selected markets in a so-called locked soft launch. During the soft launch, Qiiwi and All3Media International have continued to optimize the gaming experience, added more content and more features. During the locked soft launch, the game has performed well, which has now led the parties to choose to extend the game into a global soft launch.
In the global soft launch, the game will be evaluated in major markets such as the UK and US with the aim of increasing marketing investments for the game in each market as soon as possible which then means the game can start its global launch.

Erik Dale Rundberg, CEO at Qiiwi Games, comments:
” Our Kitchen Nightmares team has been working focused with the games since the start of the soft launch in June which now have led us into being able to extend the game into a global state. During the locked soft launch, the game has shown good key figures.
Going forward, we will work to analyze the performance of the game in major markets and draw conclusions about how we will best increase the player base of the game with more powerful investments in marketing. In addition to this, our team is continuing to add features and content to increase player engagement and ARPDAU.
Together with All3Media International, we are also working to promote the game on social media channels that exists for Kitchen Nightmares, where we expect to reach fans of the series all over the world. "
