Cannibal Cuisine Makes Me Feel Queasy

Overcooked Meets The Forest

Most of us meat-eaters have had the basics; poultry, beef, pork, seafood. There are also meats that are not so common in every part of the world, like horse or kangaroo. But there is also the forbidden meat: human. In Cannibal Cuisine, you really are what you eat.

Now, most people frown upon the consumption of another person, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. In Cannibal Cuisine, the object is to find other people, hunt them down, cook them, and serve them up. Style-wise and gameplay-wise, it is not unlike Overcooked.

Cannibal Cuisine

There are some notable differences though. There are some combat elements to the game, since you may have to fight for your lives and your food. The game also has some party game elements, such as different modes and objects of competition. In some cases, cooking may be secondary or entirely absent.

Some game modes require players to find human meat, cook them with certain other foods, and then serve them to a tribal leader for points. Prejudice depictions of cannibalistic tribal groups aside, the game is colorful and creative, adding environmental hazards into every stage. In some game modes, avoiding the hazards are the main objectives to outlast your opponents.

Cannibal Cuisine comes from Rocket Vulture, a small indie developer with a couple of games under their belt already. The game is already available on PC and Nintendo Switch, but will be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on January 25th.
