Possibly the game ever.

Submitted

I like the idea that you have to butcher your ingredients first. It's a cooking simulator with a battle system xD

Developer

Thank you!

You are welcome!

Well done! Love the artwork in this fun game. I also like the take on the theme, and the sort of Overcooked vibe. When reading the instructions it felt like a whole lot of steps but then when playing the game it made a lot of intuitive sense, so kudos there! I felt like some customers got angry and left before I could even get all the ingredients. It wouldve been nice to hold more than one thing to resolve that perhaps. But it was really fun and clever, and I was surprised after slicing up some easy items to have the tomato attack me back! Very cool. Great job!

Submitted

I get the theme now - "Dice, then roll", rather than "roll the dice". It's a stretch but I'll allow it!

Submitted

Really cute artwork well presented, and a fresh take on the theme. Bug report from a new player, picking up an ingredient before getting a plate seems to soft lock the game, unless I am missing something!

Some balance tweaks needed as others have mentioned, but this is amazingly impressive for 48 hours, excellent work and a really fun game.

Submitted

Ahh, I forgot you can dump stuff in the trash! My mistake there, but maybe would be nice to tweak this or add something to say "grab a plate" before heading out to the killing fields. :D

Submitted

Fun game, and the concept mixing fight and burrito is cool!
Maybe the cooker is a little too slow, and the customers are leaving very quickly.
I think it could be better if we could further optimize our actions, like being able to carry many ingredients or being able to use the same ingredient twice.

Good work! Art and music are nice!

Neat take on the theme. Loved the  overcooked-ish looks! 

Developer(+1)

Thanks a morbillion!

Fun game, liked it 😊

Developer

Thank you!

Submitted

reminds me of overcooked and diner dash haha, awesome take on the theme! i really like all the different ingredients' personalities, that was a great touch. awesome work!

Developer

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad the personalities were enjoyable! The tomato is definitely a jerk though

Submitted

Awesome combination of Overcooked with combat! Super original take on the theme with the pun, and the art style great, particularly the angry tomato! Great stuff :)

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Thank you! I'm glad you liked the angry tomato! He's possibly the most hated character in the game, haha! I personally think he has a kind heart and is just misunderstood!

Submitted

Very nice game! Gave me overcooked vibes. Definetly enjoyable. Only thing I disliked was how quickly customers would get mad. It often felt very hard to finish a burrito in time.

Also a super creative take on the theme, very fun.

Presentation is absolutely amazing! Love the art, love the music, love the sounds. The transition between outside and inside is also very clean. 

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much for the kind words~! I agree, the customers' patience is a little short, but we made it that way because we felt it added to the quick pacing of the kitchen!

.:° Enjoyment °:.

I was completely confused and was overwhelmed quickly. Especially confusing was the control scheme.


.:°Creativity°:.

Sadly I didn't discover the theme at all in this game but I get the idea. Cooking Brigade could've been the inspiration for this.


.:°Presentation°:.

I absolutely adore the art-style! Really. I like when non-assets are used and you bring in something personal. That's what I like to find in games.

Stay crunchy.

Ah! For the theme we used a play on words! Instead of using dice as a noun (eg. playing dice) we used it as a verb (eg. dicing up vegetables).  You take those diced up vegetables and put them in a burrito roll! I'm sorry the control scheme was confusing! We tried to make it easy by leaving controls/instructions in the description, but we didn't have time to make a full in-game tutorial within the 48 hours. I'm super glad you enjoyed the art though! Our artist was amazing, it was crazy to watch him go! I don't know how he makes it look so easy to make game art that looks so nice!

Submitted

Yo, I guess everyone can make their own decisions but I feel like that's kinda unfair. If you don't understand the controlls or the theme at first, you shouldn't imedeatly give a low score. Not only are both the theme and controlls explained on the itch page, but you can also always ask the dev first for help (or just don't rate the game). That's just my opinion, but maybe don't jump to conclusions that quickly.

Have a nice day :)

Submitted

I did unterstand the control scheme but I found it confusing. Else I would've figured it out and rated it based on that.

Rating is based on impression and not emotion. If you don't want people to grow you write something like "Absolutely great game! Please rate mine too". I want people to grow and learn which is the most important thing for me. I would have rather 10 people telling me that they hadn't fun at all with my game instead of 1 comment telling me how great of a dev I am with this masterpiece of work.

Do you know what I mean? If everyone gives me stars en masse what's the point on growing since I didn't do anything wrong but kept wondering why my game is not in the top 10 in steam then "Everyone says it's great". That means, people who don't take reviewing serious are more likely to destroy motivation than those that stay honest (not mad, bad or whatever the better word for this is) and give some insight.

This will be the only time me commenting on this topic.

Have the day you deserve.

Stay crunchy.

I was a little confused about how the game included the theme, but then I read your description :). The art style is really cool, and I like that the ingredients have their own personalities! I did have a bit of a hard time keeping up with the customers though.

Submitted

if only I could move faster and carry more than one item at a time.

Submitted

I really liked this! I tend to like Overcooked style games that feel very frantic but exciting. I dont play with a mouse and combat is clunky when using a touch pad, and i was menaced by the tomato regularly. I think you could have mapped the controls a bit better too, but overall, I had fun with it!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback. In the post-jam update I'm going to make the spacebar work for hitting as well to accommodate touchpad users! I'm super glad you enjoyed it though!

Submitted(+1)

Cool idea and awesome art!

Developer

Thank you!

Submitted

Goodness  this is difficult! The graphics are quite cute and I love the unexpected theme interpretation, it is really fun to play but for the life of me I can't seem to manage to deliver most dishes on time XD

Developer

Thanks for playing. I'm glad you enjoyed it despite the difficulty!

I was angry at first that you can't pick up more than one thing. but in retrospect, I think it would be less fun if you could. an interesting mechanic, that

Developer

Thanks! Yeah, that's definitely one of our more controversial plot features. I think it definitely adds to the experience but maybe quality of life fixes like not having to throw away an item if you don't want to use it could make it feel a lot better. I'm thinking of doing that in the post-jam update.

Submitted

Great job with the game, thoroughly enjoyed it

Developer

I'm super glad you enjoyed it!

Submitted

Pretty on the visual side and pleasant to ear on the audio and music :)

Gameplay was fun, though I really missed having more than one "object" floating behind, though I assume it was done, so that the controls are easy to grasp (one button does everything).

Also I hate that tomato with a passion :D

Developer

The one item inventory system was based on Overcooked. We wanted the player to only have to focus on dealing with one item at a time. Do you think the ability to throw items out of your inventory them would make it more enjoyable instead of having to discard them in the trash if you don't want to currently use that item  (just wondering for the list of features I'm writing down for the post-jam update)?

Submitted

Hm, the thing is that you need to go fetch some stuff one at a time (three for a recipe if I remember correctly?), so that's three trips down, choping (& maybe chasing/getting stunned) some stuff and going back up.

In Overcooked you have to go fetch ingredients one at a time as well, but those are usually close by and you're much faster (movement wise).

So, my advice would be to sped up this process (or make it so, that the recipes are easier or customers more patient ;))

Btw, that's awesome that you want to work on your game post-jam!

Developer(+1)

Thanks so much for the feedback! We'll have to think up of ways to speed up the process! You can press shift to sprint in the game, but we might end up making that a little faster than it is. The artist made sprites for burrito customers to order burritos with only one or two ingredients. I think once those are implemented the process will be a lot faster!
