The inspiration for this game is the typical pretend play of cooking and eating that kids love to set up. I’m sure you have been pulled into it many times. I know myself I have tasted many wooden block sandwiches and dirt cakes with sticks and leaf decorations. It’s not yummy… but it sure is a great game!
We wanted the digital version of this kind of playing to be as free as possible in order for it to render plenty to explore. This is why cooking is not in sequential steps; rather your child may process the food in any order and as many times as he or she likes. Also, the characters all have different preferences. So preparing a fish for the cat or for the girl is not the same thing. You’ve got to think a little here.
