“Noo­dles fly in ev­ery di­rec­tion and eggs pour from the sky”

There aren’t many games that make us hun­gry. You’d think Over­cooked would have a chance but we al­ways get too dis­tracted fu­ri­ously shout­ing about onions or to­ma­toes and scream­ing about dirty dishes. This means there’s def­i­nitely a gap in the mar­ket for some­thing to tempt those taste­buds. Kick­starter suc­cess Nour does just that. It’s time to grab some dig­i­tal noo­dles and set­tle down with a delicious in­ter­ac­tive ra­men sim­u­la­tor. Yes,

re­ally. Ra­men at work

Lone de­vel­oper TJ Hughes was in­spired by the in­trigu­ing shapes, colours, and tex­tures of bub­ble tea and started 3D mod­el­ling glasses of the ta­pi­oca-filled drink. It was when he moved onto mod­el­ling ra­men, though, that he man­aged to make all of his friends rav­en­ous. After that he dived into cre­at­ing in­ter­ac­tive food art.

There’s no need to worry about cook­ing skill here. Hughes has al­ready done the hard graft in the kitchen and all you have to do is ham­mer the but­tons on your key­board and see what hap­pens. Noo­dles fly in ev­ery di­rec­tion and per­fectly cooked eggs pour from the sky in this sat­is­fy­ing sand­box. There are no ob­jec­tives be­yond be­ing cre­ative and hav­ing fun with ra­men.

And it doesn’t stop at noo­dles. Pop­corn needs pop­ping, toast needs, well, toast­ing and mochi ice cream balls need to have sprin­kles rained down on them from a tiny squee-in­duc­ing shower. There’s even Midi Fighter 3D sup­port if you fancy some ul­tra-tac­tile food in­ter­ac­tion with your favourite con­troller. We can’t wait to eat up later this year.

Next on Hughes’ list to be added to his culi­nary play­ground are hip­ster favourite av­o­cado toast, dough­nuts and, of course, bone­less pizza.
