Too Many Cooks

FINIFUGU && friends

TOO MANY COOKS is a local cooperative party game for 3-6 players (iOS, Android) where your team works together run a restaurant kitchen. Each player uses their own device to chop, steam and wash their way to victory while sending ingredients and tools back and forth between the team. As a team, they will be shouting orders at one another while trying to figure out the best way to optimise for each gauntlet of orders; featuring iconic foods from around the world!

T.M.Cooks is approachable and cute, with complexity focused on team dynamics. It's a fast-paced team-reliant experience packed into 150s - lots of talking guaranteed! It makes for a great pick-up-and-play game which fits neatly into a family games night, a train/car ride or at an airport.

Players participate by downloading the free app onto their respective mobile devices which are connected via server connection. While it is ideally played by friends and family all sitting in the same room, it can be played online with assistance from group-chat programs like Skype, Discord and Facebook-Messenger.

We designed T.M.Cooks in response to games like Spaceteam (iOS + Android), Overcooked (PC only, at the time) and the booming popularity of social board-game experiences, but also took inspiration from Cooking Mama, Chef Wars and Cooking Fever to round out our design intention.
