What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have already been through a successful Early Access period with our previous game Rise of Industry and wanted to replicate a similar experience with Recipe for Disaster. Without sounding too cliché, Recipe for Disaster is at its heart, a game about people and adaptation, and Early Access embodies that concept by allowing us to work closely with our community and mould the game into the best that it can be. On top of that, the restaurant world is pretty nebulous, which affords us the opportunity to get our playerbase involved in content ideas in a whole number of fun and creative ways!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the full version of the game in 2022 and of course we will be pushing regularly scheduled updates during the Early Access period. We also hope to accommodate as much player feedback as possible, so the exact release date may vary depending on what additional features are requested from our community.”

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

“The full version of the game will include new mechanics and features, such as a bar area, additional scenarios and staff objects.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of Recipe for Disaster has a selection of gameplay modes that make use of a strong core gameplay loop. The game also contains a range of tools and features that afford players a good amount of creative freedom when building and running their restaurants.”

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

“Yes, as a show of appreciation to the players who support us during the Early Access period we will be offering the game at a reduced price. The full version will be priced a bit higher to reflect the additional content included and the increased complexity of the game.”

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

“Our development team is active on the game’s Discord, sharing updates, answering questions and providing direction for new members. As Early Access progresses there will be plenty of opportunity to submit feedback and feature requests. We are even planning on getting players to vote on certain types of incoming game content, such as new objects, ingredients, and mechanics!”

About This Game



Recipe for Disaster is a management game that challenges you to create and run a highly successful restaurant. Whether turning around the fortunes of failing establishments in pre-set scenarios, or bringing your own vision to life in freeplay mode, you’ll be carefully designing restaurants, hiring and managing the right staff, customizing food menus, and experimenting with ingredients to invent tasty new dishes that will impress your customers. Sounds idyllic, right? Wrong.

Blazing a trail through the hectic and stress-inducing world of the food-service industry will be anything but straightforward. After all, this is an industry built around people, and keeping everyone happy, motivated and fulfilled will require nothing short of a miracle! Serious personality flaws and major skill gaps within your team could really disrupt the flow of service, while the volatile attitudes and peculiar tastes of your customers may prove to be the barrier that separates you from those all-important positive review scores.

With perseverance, savvy management and a great deal of compromise, your restaurant will grow, opening up new opportunities and challenges as you attract ever more customers, health inspectors and food critics through your doors. Expand your premises, improve your staff, and walk the precarious line between gastronomic glory and restaurant ruin.



Pick from a pool of procedurally generated hopefuls. Consider each individual’s unique combination of traits and skill levels, and how these might affect their work efficiencies, behaviour and customer interactions. Will they excel? Or will they prove to be more trouble than they’re worth? Manage your team’s mood and stamina levels to minimize the risk of breakdowns and mid-service walkouts. Some staff will love the tasks that you give them, while others will loathe them!



Customize the design and layout of your restaurants using intuitive building tools. Equip your kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, decorate your dining area, landscape your surroundings, and build storage to hold those precious ingredients.



Manually assign tasks to your team or keep everyone busy using a highly customisable priority system. Keep a close eye on incoming customer orders and adjust your strategy in real-time to ensure the highest standard of food and customer service.



Pay close attention to the demands of your customers and adjust your menu to match their tastes. Be wary of dietary requirements, food allergies and unusual preferences. Decide how best to deal with the requests and complaints of your staff and customers. Will you be sympathetic or combative? Pushovers and tyrants will soon find themselves out of business, so you’ll have to read each situation carefully.



Use the powerful recipe editor to freely create original recipes and add them to your menus. Ensure you have the necessary ingredients by keeping on top of your storage levels and placing regular orders with your suppliers.
