If you get:

"Error

bad argument #2 to '?' (number expected, got string)"

Update your Love! I had v0.9, it worked with v11.

Too bad Love doesn't have a version compatibility check.

Weird, it warns you on Windows, I did not know it did not warn you on other OSs.


I'll have to add a check to future games.

Pros:

  • Funny and varied

Cons:

  • When trying various combinations becomes a bit clunky

This is a well written little game and enjoyable to experiment with. I lucked out on the first real attempt with something I couldn't improve upon. After that it was just wild experimentation to see what combinations produced what and to read the responses, but given that it's just the one selection, it became a little tedious to click through to get back to the one selection screen. Having 65 or however many results is great for chance to express itself through the player's choice but also makes it too daunting a task to make seeing all of the possibilities worthwhile. It maybe doesn't fit as well with the theme of the game but if you selected 3 dishes for the meal it would help sate my curiosity for all the different options. The names of the especially troublesome dishes are great in themselves, let alone what MOM has to say and at some point I just want to read through everything! Very festive and pretty accurate MOM-shaming.

Very nice concept! I included it in my compilation video of all of the Awful Holiday 2018 games!

(x/post) Stylish little inventory puzzle game where you try to figure out recipes by combining items!  Quaint and fun, I actually went through it a bunch of times trying to figure out recipes (and thankfully it saves them, although it could use some more expanding there besides just a list!).  It's quick and not super complex but what it relies on (like the dialog) I feel holds it up well.  Another strong one, this one's going to do well in any consideration of style and narrative!

This was fun I liked it c:

Good art, good presentation, good music, fun concept!

I wish I had more to say really, had no major or minor issues with it and don't have any suggestions heh.
