Publisher Team17 and Cambridge-based indie game studio Ghost Town Games today revealed that their wacky co-op cooking game Overcooked will be released next month (August 2016) for Xbox One, PlayStation® 4, and PC.
Overcooked pits up to 4-players in co-op or head-to-head modes scrambling to gather ingredients, prepare meals, and serve as many meals as possible in the given time limit. Teamwork is essential to success, and Overcooked may well be one of the best team work training games or relationship wrecking balls ever invented.
Communication and teamwork are essential to successfully and efficiently gather and deliver dishes, gather and prepare ingredients, and finally build and deliver the finished meal, all within a time limit. Wait too long to pull your creation off the stove, and you’ll burn (lose) the ingredients or meal, for example.
In early levels the recipes and the kitchens in which you prepare them are relatively simple. Tomato soup, for example, only requires you to gather 3 tomatoes, chop them, and then drop them in a pot for simmering. Once simmered, you deliver the soup to the conveyor belt.
The campaign game provides 28 standard levels consisting of crazy kitchens that become more challenging as the game progresses. Gather, prepare, and serve meals at busy street festivals, rocking pirate ships, moving food trucks, haunted houses, frozen realms, fiery volcanoes, and even outer space. Each kitchen introduces new challenges, testing your teamwork and friendships.
- 28 standard campaign levels plus an additional introductory level and final boss to conquer
- Local co-op play for 1 to 4 players across all campaign levels
- 9 versus levels to go head to head locally with either 2 or 4 players
- A range of unusual kitchens and different recipes to master
