“Ruined!” I yell, my face bright red with sheer fury. “It’s bloody ruined. Throw it away and start again, damn you!”

Ah, yes… Overcooked! – the ultimate test of patience, friendship, and forgiveness. And now there’s a sequel on the way, promising another spicy dish of culinary madness.

Overcooked! 2 will be out of the oven within a matter of months, and developer Ghost Town Games has been slaving over a hot stove to make sure that fans of the original are catered for, and newcomers enticed by what’s on the menu. As the announcement trailer shows, there will be a new selection of typically outlandish kitchens to suffer through enjoy, so expect more screaming from your fellow kitchen staff as teammates put the wrong bloody thing in the wrong bloody pot, and forget to wash their dishes, again.

There will be new recipes too, so soon you’ll be burning pasta, flopping cakes, and… whatever you call it when you mess up the art of making sushi. Overcooked! 2 is heading to Xbox One, PS4, PC and Switch on 7 August.
