Whether it's a lovable, fun-loving guy who's into fermentation, a hyper-critical pastry chef, or a natural teacher with serious Mom energy, internet celebrity chefs are a staple of the digital landscape. They teach us how to cook, sure, but their content has much more to offer. In this game jam I encourage you to dig into your favorite internet cooking shows for inspiration and design a game or other experience that captures the essence of these shows. Make use of the format, framing, and pacing of these shows, and I encourage you to dig into the underlying elements, such as relationships between personalities, assumptions made about access to quality food, and how cultural recipes are handled, just to name a few.
If you don't know of any cooking shows yet, or want to branch out into something new, here is a list of some of my favorites. You are encouraged to share your favorites in the Community section of the jam.
This is a no-vote, no-rank game jam intended to inspire creativity and share in our admiration of the noble art form of internet food videos.
Submissions close on 12:00 AM on December 6th. If you miss the deadline and still want to contribute, or have any other questions or concerns about the jam, please reach out to me via Twitter (@mrmatthew) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
