Reviews

“Like Opus Magnum, the only thing stopping you from having the recipe being as wonky as a dropped omelette is your own sense of aesthetics.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Do you like Overcooked? Do you hate playing with other people? Do you wish you could replace them with little robots and code them to do the cooking for you?”
Today I Played

“The controls and design are intuitive, and also immensely satisfying. Programming a robot to cook might not sound like thrilling gameplay, but trust me—get that little guy making sushi for you and you’ll be singing its praises, too.”
Forbes

About This Game


In a dark and dangerous cyberpunk future, food is the ultimate symbol of wealth and status. Using a revolutionary invention called Neon Noodles, the Aristocracy indulges their every culinary whim. Everyone else begs for scraps. With no memory and no name, you are just a cog in this machine. But when a mysterious message unlocks your forgotten past, it thrusts you into a daring, clandestine heist to seize control of Neon Noodles and reclaim your legacy.

Neon Noodles is inspired by the open-ended, machine-building puzzle games of Zachtronics such as Opus Magnum and Infinifactory. Take on challenging assignments from a cast of intriguing clients, design complex and beautiful automations to uncover the truth behind Neon Noodles.

Do you have what it takes to pry humanity's future from the clutches of corporate greed?
