Is there any place as chaotically creative as a hustling and bustling kitchen? Well, there were no shortage of ideas when we were planning our next big title following Star Chef – not an easy one to follow. “Let’s do something Space Age”. “No, that wouldn’t work. Something about pajamas?” Wacky ideas were aplenty. After thinking up ideas from bowls, vases, bubble-gum and some weird thoughts in-between, we decided to give our belief that anyone can cook a semblance of truth.
Call it ambitious or ambiguity – all we had at the beginning of this game was budding sarcasm, some hot lemon tea, excitability like children and above all else, fine-tuned direction of motive.
The strongest and fiercest is Jackie Lee,
with Kung Fu, the dragon warrior she’s set out to be.
Fanning away while taking a break,
she uses these props when cooking her steak
With the smell of cakes and royal bakes,
Khufu, the Pharaoh’s chef from a deep slumber wakes,
Madly in search of the Royal Ladle and Spoon,
to start cooking Egyptian recipes clearly too soon!
Sweet & cuddly with warm service,
Bob’s rightly known as the ‘Pudding of Paris’,
He won’t just whip up a lip-smacking dish,
but’ll also fix up anything you wish!
Juggly Joe is how he’s known,
always the multitasker that’s how he’s grown.
Watching him juggle is a treat to your eyes,
mocktails and cocktails including pies!
An angelic face and a graceful pace,
Bella the Ballerina twirls filling the space.
Ladle and Bowl embraced in her grip,
’tis a treat to your eyes when she attempts a flip!
From the shores of Rio to bustle of Bombay,
Leo is called the King of Flambé!
With a dash of spirit he simply drizzles,
always catch Leo with a pan that sizzles!
With her piercing gaze and razor sharp blade,
Lily the assassin is always on a raid,
She’ll slit and split any veggies she sees,
and make it look nothing short of a breeze!
A celebrity is what she aspires to be,
Amy the baker on Youtube you’ll see!
Thin Crust, Stuffed Crust - she cooks 'em all, tossing pizza’s,
catching them when they fall!
A moustache and beard and missing a shave,
Odin the Viking is one among the brave.
Armour and sword he rakes off a fish,
o scramble together one hell of a dish!
With Tricks and Treats she poofs away,
Sabrina the Witch is here to stay!.
She swirls the cauldron with her magic broom,
with Salem her cat adding more room!
A swaying stride and a walking stick beside,
Grumpy ole Granny is laughter denied.
A smile breaks in while she’s cooking,
to use her dentures when no one’s looking!
Rugged, ragged and without a nose,
Bran Frai the Zombie loves the meadows.
His words and speech get lost in translation,
cooking dishes gives him elation!
Boffo the Clown with his nose oh so round,
can effortlessly bring out a chuckling sound.
Hammer in hand pounding away; he’ll spread out a dish
while you’re laughing all day
‘Travis the Tamer’ is his pseudonym,
taming the bronco without hitting the gym
He relishes food and enjoys cooking a bun, rather than firing
bullets from his ole shooting gun
Fabio the Multi-Tasker kicks his way
into Football Championships with ease,
His treats are never short of being cheesy
and scoring goals comes to him easy!
Busting tunes and making ladies swoon,
meet Elton Chopps, he hates monsoon!
With fiery chords and his Rockstar axe,
he plays music with volume set to max!
A magic hat and spells is all it takes,
for Harry the Wizard to stir up some quakes
Drawing out treats with a wave of his wand,
anxiously waiting until you respond
Poised and calm without disaster, Zoho,
the monk’s called the Zen Master
He uses his Chi to set up a meal,
that not just nourishes but gives a great feel!
Afro the Ninja is one knucklehead,
while once on his mission he was misled
He pulls out his sword to attack a felon,
at most he gets to is striking a melon!
A brush and a palette is all he needs,
Andreü the Painter a man of great deeds!
Artsy and sweet, he is a bag of humour, he’s one of a kind
Rough and rusty he is Capitán Parrot,
great with eggs but not with a carrot,
Ancient recipes he cooks them all,
long lost when his ship took a fall!
She’s Luana, the hula dancer and her hips don’t lie,
her audience admits she’s anything but shy
She cooks her dishes with as much grace, she’ll sprinkle petals
with a sparkle on her face
With a big bowl of noodles and sauces and spices,
Eto the Sumo is void of all vices,
Do not get swayed by his ginormous size,
put on a tape and he’ll spring a surprise!
Tapping away with a rhythmic thump,
Juan the Tapper is a mindless chump
He may miss a beat with his happy feet
but ensures he rolls out a tasty treat!
A culinary ace poised in traditional grace,
Thai Khon wears a mask on his face!
He dances and sways, posing in costume,
never without his precious heirloom.
The idea for Fantastic Chefs stemmed from our position as the creator of one of the best and most loved food game across the globe. We had one thought planted deep in our minds – “Anyone can cook”. This was an exoskeleton and magic that inspired us to create something fantastic!
Our direction was clear – create something aesthetically pleasing, where fun was second-nature, and cooking, baking and all the other cookery –ing’s could quirkily be enjoyed by all. This is when things began stringing together clearly held by the connective thread of a brewing idea.
“Let’s make a puzzle adventure with a cooking twist.”, echoed a soft voice. And that was our Apple on head moment. All that was missing now was narrative, characters and game design. But now we knew the kind of story the game would essentially be.
There’s a whole genre of cooking and match-3 games – so what is it that would make our game stand up and stand out? A compelling storyline. Exciting, diverse and relatable characters. Awesome line-matching fun.
Depth in storyline and detail to nuance was crucial in bringing all our quirky chefs to life. We had to create genuine characters that showed every person, past or present, loves cooking. Cooking is a trigger to unleash the fantastic in you – and each character holds traits people can identify and relate to. This gave rise to 22 quirky chefs, all whimsical in their own ways and human through a way of evolution. The more they cook, the more they learn, enabling an evolution of growth.
This game is a unique take on cooking. There’s world travel, unique puzzles, daily challenges and a whole lot more in the hopes of creating a hallmark game for people all over the world to love and play. While it may look easy, it sure is challenging.
