Have You Played… Overcooked?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Overcooked [official site] is a silly, funny, joyous game about cooperative cooking. Each player handles their own area of the kitchen, or works at specific tasks, and instructions or calls for help are passed back and forth as the orders pile up. And then the dirty…

Heck, I'd sooner eat something prepared in Overcooked [official site]. The chaotic cooperative chef 'em up has launched a festive update with new wintery levels, new festive dishes, and all sorts of new hats and gadgets. Delia Smith may recommend…

Overcooked: How To Make Co-op Cookery Fun

Overcooked [official site] deposited me into a frantic multiplayer kitchen desperately churning out tomato soup and attempting (unsuccessfully) to keep anything from catching fire while I was at Rezzed earlier in the year.

Too Many Cooks: The Chaotic Kitchens Of Overcooked

Lurking in the RPS Tunnel Of Awesome (did we officially call it that?) at Rezzed was Overcooked [official site] – a co-op cooking game which has you work with other player-chefs to create delicious dishes in a chaotic kitchen.
