THE HEAT IN THE KITCHEN JUST GOT HOTTER AS ZOO GAMES RELEASES ‘ORDER UP!’ EXCLUSIVELY FOR Wii
Delicious Blend of Cooking and Culinary Empire Building
An appetite for fun is on the menu today as Zoo Games announces the release of Order Up!. An enjoyable blend of cooking and restaurant management, Order Up! puts players in the shoes of an up-and-coming chef as they perfect their dishes while building a culinary empire. There are over 80 recipes and four different restaurants to test players’ culinary skills, and to introduce them to a virtual smorgasbord of frantic cooking fun.
“The cooking genre has consistently produced titles that are primarily a series of slicing and dicing mini-games. With Order Up! we wanted to take the category beyond just recipes and create a full-featured experience that incorporated a fun storyline, humorous characters and ultimately, an engaging style of play,” said Lee Cummings, Creative Director. “We are immensely pleased with the end result and believe Order Up! is a completely original game whose challenge and humor can be enjoyed by anyone.”
As a promising new chef, players of Order Up! not only prepare the wide variety of dishes on the menu, but must handle the headaches and hazards of running a restaurant – not the least of which are the quirky and over-the-top personalities that players will encounter along the way. Prioritization is critical as players simultaneously prepare not one, but a multitude of dishes, each requiring a special set of ingredients and a variety of cooking techniques.
But help is available as players can hire (and fire) assistant chefs to delegate tasks in order to keep the meals coming and the customers content. But beware of the local restaurant critic and health inspector as they can make or break your restaurant career.
Developed by SuperVillain Studios, LLC., Order Up! is rated E for Everyone and is now available for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
