It doesn’t have to be as original as roguelite RPG shooter Bite the Bullet (see my preview) when it comes to the consumption of food, as this title is clearly inspired by the classic or modern Pizza Connection games and their imitators. Running the business of professional cooking, one starts out small in a not-so-well-known restaurant in order to become a star chef.
Unlike the aforementioned management sims, one isn’t focused on Italian food (although the developer is located near Rome), as it’s also possible to establish a steakhouse or go all vegan. After creating one’s own avatar, one can level him/her up in 6 different skill trees that encompass over 100 abilities. Choosing the restaurant’s location and layout, its staff, menue and also policies means there’s a lot to do. Of course experimenting with recipes and cooking styles makes this a culinary experience that can be played in various ways, while events and storylines change depending on one’s choices and actions.
The game is out now on PC with a 20% launch discount that lasts until August 30, 2020, at 1 PM UTC.
