For Grown-Ups

Welcome to our design letter

Dear Grown-Up,

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.

Bon Appétit,

– Jens Peter de Pedro, Play Designer

To Talk About

The four characters have sort of taken your role as food taster, so you’ll have to be the Sous Chef. When you and you child cook together you may try asking yourselves questions such as: What does the cat like? What does the boy love? Some characters refuse certain foods, why? The girl won’t eat fish unless its boiled or fried. Can you eat raw fish? At some point you may get a chance to talk your child about her own eating preferences.

Good To Know

A food item can only be cut once into four pieces or less.
The item in the lower right corner of the fridge is hay. The bull loves it!
