EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

In the ut­terly charm­ing Over­cooked, up to four play­ers must work to­gether to run an ef­fi­cient kitchen, while deal­ing with the ad­di­tional chal­lenges thrown up by in­creas­ingly lu­di­crous work­ing con­di­tions. In­gre­di­ents are plucked out of stor­age bins and must be pre­pared on chop­ping boards, cooked and com­bined. Onion soup, for ex­am­ple, re­quires you to chop up three onions, dump the lot in a pot, and en­sure it doesn’t burn be­fore you plate up and take it to the pass. Dirty dishes need to be washed, too, and the value of your tip starts to de­crease from the mo­ment an or­der ar­rives. Sim­ple enough at first, but try do­ing it on a rolling pi­rate ship where work sur­faces shift po­si­tion and block routes. Or, for that mat­ter, pre­par­ing a burger in a kitchen con­sist­ing of two moving trucks that sep­a­rate and re­com­bine as they drive along. Hi­lar­i­ous, rau­cous stuff.
