What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Building Community, Participating in Development and Witnessing the Game's Growth
By building a community of players who love the game through sneak previews, interacting with each other, and participating in the long-term evolution of the game, we are able to get players' suggestions and opinions, and continue to create a game experience that is close to players' expectations.

Quickly respond to problems and development iterations to create the perfect quality of the game experience
With player feedback, developers can quickly fix problems and adjust the balance, allowing game development to make more positive improvements and realize the perfect quality of the game.

Support long-term development and provide opportunities for expectant players
The preview version can provide players who are eagerly waiting for the game to experience the game content early, fulfill their expectations, and support us to continue to add and improve the game's content and features, so that the game can step by step towards the goal of long-term development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Despite the lack and difficulties of indie games, Chef Chen's long term support and love from players has continued to build our confidence and motivation in developing games. We're looking forward to the completion of the Early Access version by the end of 2023.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The 2023 Chef Chen Early Access version has a very significant and different gameplay experience than the 2021 version. The new Early Access version offers 10 brand new levels, and the demo version allows you to try the first 3 levels for free, which are the easiest and most fun to play. The official release is expected to have 30 exciting and fun levels for players and friends to play together.a”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The 2023 Chef Chen Early Access version, which is also currently available for download and purchase, has had its first 10 levels developed and released.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to improve the playability of the game by continuously revising the characters and skills, monsters, and level mechanics based on player feedback. The price will not be adjusted until the official version is ready. In the future, when the official version of the game hits store shelves, players who have already purchased the Early Access version will continue to be eligible for updates to the latest version of the game as development iterates, and will eventually be able to upgrade directly to the official version without being affected by the final price adjustment. So by participating in our game development and testing feedback now, you can not only experience the fun of the game early, but also get the game at the lowest price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will continue to interact with players through the online Steam community and Facebook, as well as participate in various exhibitions both online and offline, in order to understand players' real experiences and suggestions about the game.”

About This Game


"Chef Chen" is a multiplayer cooperative hunting and cooking game designed for 1 to 4 players. Chef Chen and his companions own a restaurant that is facing severe financial constraints. To quickly earn a significant income, they must participate in high-risk cooking competitions. As part of Chef Chen's skilled cooking team, you and your fellow players embark on an adventurous journey in a fantastical world of culinary challenges.

Chef Chen, who uses insulated gloves as boxing gloves; Parsley, the Samurai Shiba Inu who believes two swords are never enough; Bay, the archer with unparalleled accuracy shooting arrows with their feet; and the innocent-looking yet fiercely formidable magician cat Pepper. Together, the four of you venture into a different world to face exciting challenges!

Being a qualified chef requires more than just chopping meat and stir-frying!

During the competition, you must gather ingredients on the spot, from stealing Harpy's Egg, slicing Red Scallion, peeling Aethercap, to hunting Cockatrice. Each ingredient must be obtained through your own efforts, and completing orders within the time limit earns you rewarding stars!

Teamwork is everything!

If you think that everyone simply needs to excel at their own tasks to easily win the competition, you are mistaken! In addition to wandering monsters and various obstacles, the fantasy world is filled with hurdles and mechanisms. With limited cooking knives, magic vines, trebuchets, floor mechanisms, and seesaws, your success depends on the level of cooperation and synchronization with your teammates!

Mysterious colossal mythical creatures!

While you are focused on hunting monsters and collecting ingredients, mythical creatures that extend beyond the boundaries of stories emerge from the depths of the fantasy world, adding an extra level of excitement and challenge to your already bustling competition!

Adventure with new partners!

Whether you prefer to take on the challenge alone or gather friends and family to form a team, you will encounter exhilarating challenges in a variety of levels. Unlocking new stages and locations, and if your culinary skills are exceptional, you may even recruit new chef companions to join your team, adding more creativity and strategy to your upcoming levels!

Each partner must play their role, collaborate, and serve one delicious dish after another, conquering the discerning taste buds of the judges and earning applause and rewards!
