Having honed our culinary multitasking abilities from humble beginnings operating a greasy spoon by way of to a fantastic restaurant, we’ll subsequent be put to the take a look at in a meals truck. On a street journey. Through a dystopian near-future United States. Where we’ll additionally combat different heavily-armed meals vehicles. Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is a fittingly-escalated title for a sequel which escalates issues a lot extra. Announced right now by builders Vertigo Gaming, it’ll roll out subsequent yr. For now, come watch the announcement trailer for proof I didn’t make all this up.
Creator and designer David Galindo defined in right now’s announcement that he needed to make a 3rd game however was cautious of fatigue creeping in, so the plan was to “take it in an entirely new direction for the series.” The swap isn’t simply new garnish on the identical gamedish, he says.
“Whereas the first two games had a structure of opening a restaurant in the morning and closing it at night with two rush hours in-between, CSD 3 takes the gameplay on the road and instead has players making a specific amount of food for each stop they make, which can range from two to five stops at a time. This change in gameplay meant I had to strip out a ton of the core game mechanics- chores, side dishes, and the buzz mechanics from the first two games are gone now. In a lot of ways, it takes the management systems of the very first game of the series, adds the gameplay mechanics from the second, and adds in an all new story-based campaign and new gameplay structure.”
He says it has extra of a narrative factor too, by way of our two robotic helpers. Typical kitchen administration stuff.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is because of hit Steam Early Access in January 2020. The full and completed launch is predicted to comply with later that yr.
Galindo defined that with Cook Serve 2 they “saw the way the community influenced the design of the game, to the point where I was including features I never thought I’d add, such as Zen mode, that broadened the game’s appeal to a whole new audience.” So he says it’s “a no brainer” to make that the unique plan this time and undergo early entry.
If you need your apocalyptic meals truck games slightly shootier, thoughts, you is perhaps after the Romero family’s Gunman Taco Truck.
