Couch multiplayer favourite beloved of our own Jay Moyles, now on the mighty Nintendo Switch. A great fit for the machine, and hopefully out in time for infuriating multiplayer shenanigans at the meet.

I'm yet to play it but now very tempted to download it up.

I'm pretty sure this is my thing more than Mr Moyle, you jerk!

Hmm, despite the Team17 name I wasn't interested in the slightest in this when I saw it. Could someone give me a quick sales pitch please?

Working with 1-3 amigos to cook dishes whilst the kitchens/dishes get a little more kerazy. It's kind of a hard one to sell by talking about because until you're screaming at your mum to deliver some Onions it just won't click, but it really is one of the best local multiplayer games I've ever played.

I've played this and enjoyed it a lot, but it's definitely Andy who's harped on about before. Laughing

Yeah, this is brilliant fun. I played it at a mate's and it quickly devolved into a screaming match with such classic lines as "PASS ME THE BURGER MEAT BEFORE THE EARTHQUAKE HITS!" and "YOU IDIOT DON'T FALL IN THE ICY WATER I NEED A MUSHROOM NOW!"

Sounds like another multiplayer blinder then! Switch is already filling up with these. Might be something to try out after I'm/we're done with Snippers and 12S.

It's so simple to play too - I think it's two buttons alongside moving about, so it's definitely a good fit for Switch in terms of its ease of play.

Everyone else loves it - and I love watching people play it - but my old man eyes quickly lose where I am, so my chef just stands sadly in the corridor, with a quickly cooling bowl of soup going to no customer.

Out this Thursday for Ł15.99 (currency unit may differ where you live). I saw this being played (and 'played') on Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit not so long ago; it looked like a decent slice of anarchic multiplayer fun... which means there's no point me getting it. Drama queen

I reckon this will be incredible with my brother and sister. I also now work in a restaurant so this will make sense with my colleagues. All over it.

If you can get the Wife to give it a go I'm sure you'll have a blast with it Zero.

I've played this with a few people and I think it really suits play with non-gamers. When I played with the gf by the end we were an incredible machine, but the crazy antics had died quite a bit.

Aye, it's simple fun, so that's why it gels well with your non-gamers. Plus, that initial madness of yelling at each other about burgers and soup is brilliant stuff. Laughing

If you're not distracted by more than 3 things moving on a screen, like I am, it's a hoot. They should probably have done a Ninty-exclusive thing - Breath of the Wild cooking anyone? We should all know how to make salmon meuniere now.

Can you place this and have fun on your own and does it have online CO-OP?

No online co-op, I've heard. Aww!

Buying this to play with The Lady. Does this thread need a title change, or will we all still be playing it summer next year? And will our Switches actually manage to link up this time?

I think we probably should give it a bash at the next meet-up, although whether or not we end up in Newcastle again is another story entirely!

The Lady and I are not very co-ordinated. We had fun with our first blast at this, but it was stressful fun. Chuffing shifting counters... DAMN YOU!

Also: really addictive music. The first few notes of the tune were playing in my head for hours after I turned off the Switch.

The food-stealing mice can absolutely do one. DAMN YOU! (Yes, we're making slow progress...)
