Our Next Game: Cook, Serve, Delicious!

I’m pleased to announce that we’re currently hard at work on our next game, called “Cook, Serve, Delicious!” which we’re aiming for a summer release!

Cook, Serve, Delicious! is the commercial sequel to the old Ore no Ryomi arcade-action-management style fan games I made many years ago, and it’s one that I know a lot of people have requested over the years. It’s a genre that I thought at the time was too crowded to compete in (restaurant management), yet some might remember how I announced the game twice anyways a few years back, with both projects falling through due to lack of funds, among many other problems.

This time around, I’m working with an excellent team (artist Sara Gross and composer Jonathan Geer, both of whom worked on Liquisity 2, The Oil Blue and more). I also have some of that Indie Royale Oil Blue money to fund this game and make it happen. It’s also a welcome relief to work on this game after Neptune Gasoline exploded in my face.

The game has been in production since March, and work is going quite nicely. Right now Game Maker 8.1 is powering the game, which will allow for a Windows DRM free release, but I’m making it to where I have the option of smoothly porting it to Game Maker Studio once that’s released, so that I have more options available to port the game to other platforms.

Lots more info will be posted about the game weekly on the blog, so get ready to cook your way to awesome!

    Great, I always loved ONR! I’m guessing this won’t be carrying the Ore No Ryomi name, though, considering it’s to be commercially released – right?

  2. chubigans says:

    Correct! 😀

  3. Pete says:

    YES!! Maybe the time has finally come for this to happen 🙂

  4. Damn, that art looks positively delicious. As long as it’s packed with the humour of the previous games, I’m sold. Well, I’m sold regardless, but whatever. Congrats. 🙂

    Original release date (according to the website in 2005) was suppose to be July 2005. It’s been years in waiting, and I’m finally glad to hear that ONR 3 is coming through!

  6. J.K. Riki says:

    Work hard to make this release date you’ve just announced. It’s time to repair the expectations of announcing release dates and missing them. Can’t have that happen anymore.

    Good luck with it.

  7. blueflare says:

    yes, YES

  8. chubigans says:

    @J.K. Riki yeah that’s probably a good idea, hah. 😀

  9. Pedro Osório says:

    Ore No Ryomi sequel, oh yeah!!! Mr. Chubigans delivers again. I still remember playing those games I don’t know how many years ago… go go go!!!

    It’s like Duke Nukem Forever except it probably won’t suck.

    Woot! Can’t wait!

    I read the blog before and I am happy to have a new vertigo game but just a request could ur next game be anything else away from simulation as I think you make too much simulation game (why not try again shooter or Puzzle Platformer).

    Do you know that Spirits of Metropolis and Vivid Conception and Winter Solatice are my best games beside ONR series 🙂

  13. chubigans says:

    @Amidos2006 I have no idea what my next game is after this one, but request noted. 🙂
