Happy Thanksgiving, Niche Gamer Nation! Today we’ll get a look at independent British developer Ghost Town Games’ wild and multiplayer-focused cooking game, Overcooked. Featured above, you can press play on the trailer and get a look at the game in action.
Players will be tasked with traveling through a variety of cruel and grueling kitchens on their quest to save the Onion Kingdom, and become a master chef, of course. You’ll have to work with your fellow chefs and prepare, cook, and serve a multitude of orders for your customers.
Offering a variety of game modes ranging from chaotic couch co-op to competitive challenge modes, you’ll be able to hone your digital cooking skills in a variety of ways and through various challenges.
Here are the game’s key features:
- A CULINARY QUEST
The Onion Kingdom is a rich world full of cruel and unusual kitchens for you to conquer. Take part in an epic journey and tackle an increasingly challenging and bizarre gauntlet of kitchens which will push your skills of co-operation and co-ordination to the very limits. Each level brings a new challenge for you and your team to overcome, whether it’s sliding around on a pirate ship, moving between speeding trucks, cooking on an ice floe or serving food in the bowels of a fiery underworld, each level will test the mettle of even the bravest chefs.
