“Inbento takes a classic puzzle concept and gives it a typically Japanese-themed twist of creating bento boxes.”
9/10 – Cubed3

“inbento is a sublimely sweet and thoroughly addictive puzzler that deserves a place in any puzzle fan’s collection, even if you’re a dog person at heart. You monster.”
9/10 – GameSpew

“Even though I'm blessed with opposable thumbs, Inbento showed me that there's both a science and an art to bento boxes that's difficult to master. Which would be fine, if playing it didn't make me so hungry.”
77/100 – New Game Network

About This Game

inbento is a chill pattern-matching puzzle game where you prepare Japanese lunch boxes (bento) while enjoying a cute story about parenthood and growing up. Recreate over 120 puzzling recipes, master tricky mechanics and learn about the life of the kitten family as you pour your love into the food you create.


In each puzzle you start with a limited number of ingredients and a picture of the final result - rotate, move and insert the food in the right order to rediscover the original recipe and make a delicious dish!


Finishing each chapter will reward you with interactive illustrations offering glimpses into the life of a cat family and the ups & downs of parenthood.


Over the course of the game you will encounter new mechanics that allow you to swap, remove and copy ingredients in order to make the puzzles more exciting!


You don’t need to be a pro chef to play inbento - the game’s relaxed pace and textless tutorial will offer all the guidance you need to have a great time!
