The Cookening is a top-down perspective action-adventure game patterned after 2D classics from the 1980s and 1990s, drawing inspiration from games like The Legend of Zelda. You play as Master Chef, world-class superstar of the culinary arts. Your mission is to find a long-lost magic book of recipes called the OmNomNomicon, hidden away in a distant land. The book is in the hands of your old arch-rival, Victor FonDoom, who is holed up in the depths of his exclusive restaurant-dungeon. In order to gain access to FonDoom's lair, Chef must prove his worth by being awarded 5 stars by the ancient Culinary Council, granting him the prestige necessary to confront FonDoom and win the book. But getting the 5 stars won't be easy—Chef will need to earn the stars by finding tokens of courage located in dungeons scattered around the game world, and bringing them back to the Council.

That's right - you can download your very own copy of the first publicly released gameplay demo of The Cookening!

We want to show you what we've created from scratch over the past few months. AND we want to hear what you think about our game. We know we have a long way to go, but we feel it's never too early to listen to what your players have to say about your game.

We're giving you the opportunity to get your opinions heard early enough in the development process that we could actually make them happen in the first release of our game! THAT'S SUPER EFFING COOL!

Download the demo here and leave us your feedback:
