Nintendo Switch Eshop is going to increase its collection of games this week to offer more gaming hours to users. The favorite production is based on the old cooking genre yet it has a new exciting edge. Overcooked has been deemed as a worthy rival to Mario Karts itself. The party game invites friends to cook and serve meals to clients in a completely chaotic yet fun way.
The Team Behind Party Game Overcooked Found Mario Karts as a Source of Inspiration
Developer Ghost Town Games chose the date of July 27 as the debut day for their most anticipated game, namely Overcooked: Special Edition. The main content will also feature two extensions in its turn namely Festive Seasoning and The Lost Morsel.
In Overcooked, the wild spirit of a party is moving in a kitchen. Players have to cooperate perfectly to reach their targets and complete recipes. However, the game allows a party for one as well in the campaign mode. At the same time, it offers players the opportunity to show off their skills and compete with one another to designate the best cooking team of two or four in town.
Ghost Town Games launched this game as their first product in August 2016, and it proved to be a jackpot. They received numerous awards for their work and were featured in many best games lists. Ghost Town’s co-founder, Phil Duncan, admitted that the creative team took inspiration from other acclaimed productions to build their own party game. However, their main muse was Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to get the hang of latest intuitive controls.
“It was really helpful when Mario Kart came out, because that’s what we looked to.”
Nintendo Switch Eshop Opens Its Doors to Third-Party Developers for Exciting Co-Op Indie Games
A huge part of their success came from their applied anticipations on users’ gaming experience. They had to know how to keep players hooked on their game and when exactly they need to communicate with their team members. The result is hours of extremely engaging content that friends can enjoy together.
Nintendo Switch Eshop is preparing various other co-op indie games that they will introduce by the end of this year. Fortunately, they are not focusing on their own productions only, but they welcome the additions from third-party developers as well.
