A Tasty New Dish is Served Up Exclusively for
Wii as Zoo Games Announces Order Up!
Cooking Genre Gets Some Needed Spice With
Addition of New Sim Elements
Gamers prepare to feast as Zoo Games today
announced Order Up!. Developed by SuperVillain Studios, LLC., Order Up! is a
full-featured cooking and restaurant management video game that promises players
a much richer and more entertaining experience by expanding beyond basic slice
and dice gameplay.
“The emerging cooking genre has significant
potential beyond the simple, linear gameplay offered by other games on the
market,” said Lee Cummings, Creative Director. “Order Up! Gives players the
ability to not only prepare and cook a meal, but to do so while juggling other
orders, handing off tasks to assistant chefs, working inside restaurants you can
improve, and serving the food to customers with distinct personalities and
tastes in food. The frantic pace, the use of the unique Wii Remote™, and much,
much more, makes Order Up! the ultimate cooking sim.”
As a promising new chef on the island of Port
Abello, players of Order Up! get to build their own culinary legacy and
restaurant empire from the ground up. Rising from humble beginnings as a grill
cook in a fast food restaurant, the player comes to grips with dozens of
different ingredients and many different cuisines, from classic American Diner
food, to Mexican and Italian dishes. During this journey, players will deal with
the headaches and hazards of running a working restaurant kitchen, picky
patrons, quirky assistant chefs, food critics and health inspectors. Order Up!
is a deep, fast paced game, full of personality, which promises to push the
cooking genre to its limits.
Order Up! is expected to release July 22, 2008
for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
