Overcooked

If you've ever wanted all the stress of cooking in a busy kitchen without the reward of the delicious food that comes from it then look no further than the Epic Games Store this week.

Until 11th July Epic's free-to-keep game is Overcooked - a simple, frustrating, yet incredibly fun couch co-op cooking game that will make or break your friendships. Developed by Team 17, it's a top down game where you play as chefs running a kitchen and serving food in order to save the world. You can play on your own or with up to four friends (which I highly recommend for maximum inefficiency and laughs).

When people say communication is vital in gaming, I'm pretty sure this is game they're referring to. You'll need to work together to make dishes and fulfil orders in constantly changing kitchens. In solo mode you'll need to coordinate yourself as you switch to chefs in different parts of the kitchen. Each level in Overcooked will see you overcome new challenges - be that new dishes or new environmental events, such as cooking inside a rotating space station, or racing against time to serve your food before an earthquake separates the level.

The Epic Game Store’s giveaway du jour is the brillo Overcooked. A co-op cooking game for up to four (local only) about wobbly little chefs running around top-down diorama kitchens, preparing ingredients and serving dishes. Simple, except sometimes you’re trying to serve food during an earthquake, or across a kitchen built into multiple moving trucks. Good fun, and while its sequel improved on the recipe, you get a generous free portion with the first, including the Lost Morsel and Festive Seasoning DLC. Grab it here before another game takes its place next Thursday.

Overcooked

Co-op cooking romp Overcooked is free on the Epic Games Store for a week, until July 11. It's a game for friends who do not want to be friends anymore, and it's perfect if you're a budding little tyrant who wants to shout orders in a kitchen. We've got some history. 

It's worth risking friendships over, though, and is best enjoyed in a foursome. "With four players gathered around, Overcooked is hands down one of the best couch party games ever made," Tom Marks said in his Overcooked review. "It’s the perfect balance of chaos that can be conquered with skill."

Overcooked will be followed next week by Torchlight, the charismatic action-RPG. Torchlight very generously lets you bring your pet with you when you go crawling through dungeons, which provides both emotional and practical support. As well as helping out in a fight, you can send it back to town to sell your loot. This is why you should always bring your dog to work.

Ghost Town’s messy co-op chefmatch Overcooked 2 has me in the mood for some barbecue, with a new bit of DLC featuring smoothies, kebabs and helpfully pushing your fellow chefs into pools so they can cool off. A bit oddly timed, given that the nights are growing darker and colder, but that’s perhaps why – even shut indoors and playing videogames, we can get a taste of summer. The Surf ‘N’ Turf DLC is out now, and there’s a juicy trailer being plated up just below.
