Overcooked emerges from the oven on August 3

Here's hoping it's well-done, or at least medium-well.


Team17 and Ghost Town Games are pleased to announced that Overcooked, a cooking game that caters to local multiplayer, will be released on August 3 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Whether you prefer to work alongside a sous chef or whip up delectable dishes solo, Overcooked challenges you to prepare a wide array of meals—but it seems accomplishing that goal involves more than following a recipe.

"In the campaign you’ll have to travel across space and thyme, quite literally, on your quest to become the ultimate top chef capable of saving the endangered Onion Kingdom," per a press release. "Take on a wide range of unusual kitchens including street festivals, pirate ships, food trucks, haunted houses, frozen realms, fiery volcanoes and outer space! You’ll have to cook a range of different dishes and work together in order to become the most effective and ultimate team. Gouda luck!"

One to four players can play the campaign, which encompasses 28 regular levels plus a tutorial and "final boss" encounter. Choose from numerous chefs, compete in nine versus levels suited for two to four players, and learn how to cook all sorts of recipes.
