What makes your game unique?
We’ve been hard-pressed to describe what the game is in a phrase. The closest is “Food Discovery RPG”! Here are some points that make Chef Wars truly stand out:
+ It’s the first TRUE food discovery game! The focus isn’t on cooking motions or cafe management, but actually going around the world and learning about our diverse culinary heritage. You can collect over 200 ingredients and invent more than 900 real-world recipes from 50+ countries! Not just burgers and fries… think Banana Blossom Salad, Lamprey à la Bordelaise, Russian Sharlotka, or Bogor Laksa! For every dish you discover, there’s a recipe link so you can make it in real life too!
+ We have a fully-explorable real world map with 500+ locations in Europe and Asia! Travel from Paris to Penang, from Tallinn to Tokyo! Each location is lovingly researched: the ingredients you get are tailored to the town, and townspeople talk about the sights and local specialties.
+ You get to fight in themed cooking battles, impressing more than 10 judges with unique personalities. Some judges want you to stick to the theme, others care about taste. And all of them have hidden preferences (French, Cheesy, Spicy, Chocolate, etc)!
+ This game will make you hungry… hungry for more!
Why do you think you will win the Grand Prix this year?
There’s simply no other game out there like Chef Wars! It was lovingly researched and developed over 3 years. It’s a deep but light-hearted discovery and exploration game in the vein of oldies like Carmen Sandiego, or Uncharted Waters New Horizons!
