    Overcooked

    Lo people

    Ferral gifted me this on Steam and it's a very very good game. Easy peasy to learn, and an hellish blood boiler to do really well at.

    Played by myself and my 10 year old lad, or by he and my missus.. or she and I...

    shared keyboard... one keyboard... oh the tension and the laughter

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/448510/Overcooked/

    It's a simple idea. It's a top down kitchen. You control a chef with arrow keys, a pick up/drop key and an action key. There's a sprint key too but it's just carnage with that!
    In the kitchen is a selection of boxes of ingredients, a choppingh board, a gas hob with a pot, and some bowls to serve. There's a serving hatch and a sink to wash up.

    The orders come in as tickets at the top of the screen, and you grab the ingredients, chop them, pot them, cook them, bowl them and serve. Simple

    You've got a few minutes and the clock counts down.

    Deadly simple. Deadly hard. Aim for 1 2 oe 3 stars and get to the next kitchen. The menu gets a tad more complex but you expect that.

    With two chefs, sharing a keyboard and running around like numpties, rolling onions and burning food it gets tense!

    Then the kitchens change... moving work surfaces, ice, moving trucks in the backs of lorries... it's hectic and it's FUN!

    9/10 for me. A 100% family laugh

    Played it with my daughter though how I didn't end up launching the controller I will never know!

    Really fun game but amazingly frustrating.

    Wife and I still haven't got past the ice level where you need to jump on the ice floes to cross the river.

    I've got a spare Steam key if anyone wants it... <Gone to Macman>

    Really fun but only any good multiplayer and I don't have any friends to play with regularly

    Zak Jr and I nailed that after 4 or 5 goes... there are harder ones

    then.. we'd got a few 1 star's and lots of 2stars.. and a few 3's... we couldn't progress until we got a few extra stars on earlier kitchens.. so we got a bit tense, and then down and dirty on the earlier kitchens, lobbing food on the floor, rolling stuff at each other... bloody ace but what a tense last 30 seconds.

    However... the geius Kitchen of the game so far is UTTER DARKNESS (power cut) with only head torches... and flashes of lightning!

    The first entire attempt was just wandering around trying to find stuff

    brilliant game

    We're using a shared keyboard... try THAT for being right next to each other...and for "Dad... that WAS a rude word, Mum won't be happy if I say that!"

    Lol, hmmm yes we were using 2 controllers, I don't think the keyboard would have worked, I would imagine I would be ordering a new keyboard by now!

    Re: Overcooked

    I never realized this was available on pc - i played with my nephew and niece on xbox - but sharing a keyboard i'm not sure - argument waiting to happen bad enough when you have two controllers - fun game but on any format i can see a lot of blame game going on for loss of task
