Its been over half a year since I’ve recommended a game on this blog but with the festive season upon us, I thought now would be great time to share another game with you!
The game I want to recommend today is cooperative cooking game called Overcooked!, that was developed by Ghost Town Games and published by Team17 Digital. The aim of the game is simple: you and your friends need to work as a team to serve a variety of dishes to numerous customers across several different restaurants. Sounds simple? Well, you know the saying too many cooks spoil the broth? That definitely applies here!
Not only will you have to work together, under a time limit, but you also overcome the quirks of the kitchen you are in. You see, each kitchen has a different gameplay mechanic, whether it is split in half on two lorries or rotating in space. Trust when the pressure is on, the chaos just increases!
The reason I am recommending Overcooked! is because it is a great party game. The controllers are really simple, which makes it great with younger players or even people who have never picked up a controller before. In fact, last Christmas Day, my family played Overcooked! and even though my parents don’t play video games, they had a blast playing this one. Plus, there is also a free Christmas DLC pack called The Festive Seasoning, which gives the game a festive theme with eight new levels and two Christmassy chefs.
Overall, this is a great party game that is reasonably priced. It easy to learn but difficult to master gameplay will mean that people with different gaming skills can pick up a controller and play together, regardless of the gaming ability. If you are looking for some post-Christmas Day lunch gaming, then Overcooked! is a game I highly recommend.
Overcooked! is available on PC, PLaystation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
