Battle Chef Brigade; part match 3, part brawler, hand drawn graphics, multiplied by the power of Iron Chef. This game has all the components to ensure I was going to play it.
With that, there should be little explanation needed as to why we’re featuring it in our RenCon booth. Beyond just the concept and ambition, this is an amazing title featuring incredible content (even in it’s current beta version) and has some immense talent working on it.
The core game plays in two ways - the brawler portion has you going into the wilderness defeating the plants and creatures that will serve as ingredients for your dish. Once sufficient ingredients have been collected, you move into the second portion of gameplay which is a kind of match three where you combine the ingredients you’ve collected to create the dish: And all of this is to occur within a specified timeframe. To maximize your score on the dish, you must pay attention to what kinds of ingredients the judges will be on the lookout for.
It’s the one game we’re showing that has not yet been released for sale, so we are privileged to have the game’s demo to feature in our booth. I cannot wait for the game’s release in 2017, but in lieu of that, this demo is the next best thing.
