Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale interview: Whipping up something special

We spoke with the Producer of Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale to learn more about the game's development.


Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale is a new VR game centered around player cooperation. Up to four players can work together to prepare and serve meals for constantly needy customers. Cook-Out is big on chaos and laughs, and we got in touch with the developers to learn a bit more about the game. We spoke with Gustav Stenmark, a Producer on Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale for a peak behind the curtain.

Throughout the years there have been several games that have involved cooking and sandwich-making including the classic Burger Time, and more modern games like Cook, Serve, Delicious. Were any of these an influence on you when coming up with the concept for Cook-Out?

On top of making delicious sandwiches, there's also a fairy tale aspect to the game. Where did the idea to blend the two concepts come from?

What will a typical game of Cook-Out look like? Is there a core game type or will it be chock full of mini-games? 

What kind of unique obstacles did you face making this for VR platforms?

What is your perfect sandwich? Please describe it in intricate detail.

If Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale seems like something up your alley, the game can be purchased in the Oculus Store for $19.99 USD.
