An idiot sandwich…
It’s the end of another week, and that means Epic Games Store is ready to reveal the next game it will be offering up to all of its users free of charge — And its a matter of fires, fights, and fricassees, with the arrival of kitchen and restaurant management sim Recipe for Disaster, available from February 9.
Developed by the fantastically monikered Spanish outfit Dapper Penguin, and launched on PC in the summer of 2022, Recipe for Disaster tasks players with the smooth operation of a professional kitchen and its attached dining room, ensuring the quick, efficient, and accurate work of its chefs and waiting staff, delivering high-quality meals to customers while keeping everybody happy and safe — the former being something of an impossibility in the catering industry.
Recipe for Disaster offers up customization and management goals on a huge variety of kitchen elements, from ensuring stock of quality ingredients, to purchasing top-tier equipment, and managing the distinct personalities of your staff to encourage team synergy and discourage inter-culinary brawling. You can also design the restaurant itself, and even conjure up your own recipes to really put your eatery on the map. Dapper Penguin’s release was well-received by critics on release, and is well worth a look for management sim fans or anyone who believes they’re cut out for the non-stop, high-pressure world of foods and feuds.
Recipe For Disaster will be available to download, free of charge, from Epic Games Store from February 9-16. Until then, users still have the opportunity to bag themselves this week’s freebies, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider and City of Gangsters.
