After creating Rise of Industry, which starred as a business mogul, Kasedo Games and Dapper Penguin Studios announced today Recipe for Disaster. This is a tasty new restaurant simulation coming to PC this year.
Restaurant management game and social simulation, Recipe for Disaster puts the players in the shoes of an inexperienced but ambitious chef, who strives to achieve his dream of becoming an internationally renowned restaurateur.
Recipe for Disaster offers players an out of the ordinary challenge, exploring the complex social relationships between staff and customers, as well as the dire (but humorous) consequences of mismanagement in the service industry.
” We are delighted to be able to announce that our relationship with Kasedo Games continues, following our joint work on Rise of Industry, ”said Alex Mochi, Founder of Dapper Penguin Studios. “We wanted to create an experience different from traditional restaurant simulations, focusing on the social aspects of the industry rather than day-to-day management. Recipe for Disaster focuses on people rather than place, and that’s what makes it truly unique.. “
In a typical day in a restaurant, service is always at risk of being disrupted by personality clashes or gaps in staff skills, and positive reviews, so important, can be left out of reach if one does not properly deal with the highly variable attitudes and tastes of customers.
” Anyone who has worked in the hospitality industry knows that there is often a colleague or client who is going to make their day harder than it should be. “, continued Mochi. ” Recipe for Disaster embraces these aspects and challenges players to overcome difficulties while continuing to provide quality service. “
Recipe for Disaster can be added to your Wish List on Steam right now.
Players can also participate in discussions on our Discord channels and Twitter.
Build your dream team: choose from a group of procedurally generated hopes. Consider each individual’s unique combination of character traits and skill levels, and how these may affect their work effectiveness, relationships, and interactions with customers. Will they fit in well? Or will they turn out to be more problematic than they are?
Restaurant construction: customize the design and layout of your restaurants using intuitive building tools and a range of colorful themes. Equip your kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, decorate your dining room, and build warehouses to store your precious ingredients.
Define your priorities: Manually assign tasks to your team or keep everyone busy with a highly customizable priority system. Keep an eye on customer orders and adjust your strategy in real time to ensure quality service.
Work ethic : manage your team’s attitude and stamina levels to minimize the risk of illness and on-duty walkouts. Some staff will love the tasks you give them, while others will hate it! Pay attention to staff reflections, temporary and permanent trait changes, and changing relationships within your team.
The customer is always right: be attentive to the requests of your customers and adapt your menu according to their tastes. Beware of dietary demands, food allergies, and unusual preferences.
Criticism is easy: decide how best to handle inquiries and complaints from your staff and customers. Will you be understanding or combative? Provocateurs and tyrants will quickly find themselves unemployed, so you will need to carefully study each situation.
A matter of taste: work with reliable or questionable suppliers to source a wide variety of ingredients. Use the intuitive recipe editor to freely create original recipes and add them to your menus.
…And that’s only the beginning : updates are planned to offer cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes, additional themes and room types, health inspections, staff rotations, disasters and full modding support.
