About the Recipe for Disaster
Recipe for Disaster is a fun yet challenging take on the restaurant tycoon genre and shows the hectic and stressful world of the restaurant industry in all its glory. Players will have to experiment with different ingredients and customize food menus in an attempt to satisfy customers’ particular tastes and volatile attitudes, always walking the precarious line between gastronomic glory and restaurant ruin.
Players will also be able to build their dream restaurant from the ground up and get creative with the in-game recipe editor, using their culinary prowess (or not) to recreate classic dishes or go wild and create something unique. really “inspiring”.
But in true Kitchen Nightmares fashion, running a restaurant isn’t all it’s made out to be! Players will have to deal with staff personalities, stock issues, cleanliness, fires, rat infestations, overflowing toilets, VIP guests, and not to mention the need to keep health inspectors away or face a huge fine!
Assemble your dream team
Choose from a pool of procedurally generated hopefuls. Consider each individual’s unique combination of traits and skill levels, and how these might affect their work effectiveness, behavior and customer interactions.
Will they excel? Or will they turn out to be more trouble than they are worth?
Manage your team’s mood and stamina levels to minimize the risk of mid-serve and mid-serve breakdowns and walkouts. Some staff will love the tasks you give them, while others will hate them!
Customize the design and layout of your restaurants using intuitive building tools. Equip your kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, decorate your dining room, furnish your environment and build storage to hold these precious ingredients.
Set your priorities
Manually assign tasks to your team or keep everyone busy using a highly customizable priority system. Keep a close eye on incoming customer orders and adjust your strategy in real time to ensure the highest level of food and customer service.
The customer is always right
Pay close attention to your customers’ requests and adjust your menu according to their tastes. Beware of dietary requirements, food allergies and unusual preferences.
