The 24 games of Christmas! Game #19: Overcooked

1 min read

It’s that time of year again! The decorations are out, the house smells of Christmas thanks to the tree in the living room, presents are sitting under the tree and all the good food is on the table. We do love Christmas at DDNet, and as always, we’re doing an advent calendar of our own on the site. Each day we’re going to list one game that’s just perfect to play over the Christmas season, so be sure to check back each day to get all the gaming suggestions you’ll need for the season. 

It’s hard to think of a more perfect local multiplayer game that has been released in recent years than Overcooked. It’s not a whole lot of fun single player, but in multiplayer, both co-operative and competitive, you’ll be in howls of laughter playing this one. Howls.

It’s a simple game: prepare recipes according to what the customers order. But soon it all becomes manic, as you’re copping veggies, searing meat, washing dishes and generally running around trying to do ten things at once. It’s manic, it’s hilarious, and it is so, so addictive for anyone, whether you’re usually into games or not. I.e. the perfect party game over Christmas.
