Description

Sophie, the main character, dreams of becoming a chef when she grows up. Stuck at her house due to modern day problems, both of her parents go off to work and Sophie is stuck in her own small world. Having no playmates and little to do, Sophie decides to escape her world using her imagination and become a chef, like she always dreamed of being! The more Sophie uses her imagination, the less dull her world will become.

Controls: WASD to move around, and use mouse for mini games. Press esc to quit, and R to restart. To play one of our few mini games, go to the stove in the kitchen and press enter.

We had much more planned for this project, but unfortunately did not get to what we wanted to do. Here is all we finished!

    Sorry to hear you didn't manage to implement everything you wanted, but hopefully you learnt a lot :D

    Good job on submitting something! What's there was good :) Hope y'all will keep participating.

    It has potential! I really liked the art.

    Graphics were cute, but view was off, and character was in top-left corner. I met three minigames, were there more? I was wondering Did you make the music or did you use free marketplace assets?

      Thank you! Sorry about the view, have not seen that before. All music and art was created by my partner, Benjamus. There were only 3 mini games, unfortunately because we did not have time to do anymore.

    The graphics were pretty nice and I like the overall idea. I played it a long time and it seemed like there wasn't an end since the colors just became over-bright (so I couldn't see the details in the red carpet anymore) but if there is, please let me know!

    The stove

    Good looking game and simple, peaceful music to keep the mood calm.

    I was able to chop the onion like a chef and dropped the cherry on top of the cake like a master! :D

    Good effort, short, but good experience.

    It's obviously incomplete, but what's here is really good. The art in both the house and the mini-games looks great. The house is a bit lacking in colour, but I assume the idea was to have it become more colourful over the course of the game. The music is nice too. I like the interpretation of the theme as well.

    Music and mini games were nice! I like the idea, it could be a really charming and chill game if developed.

    Seemed like it was going the right direction. I like the artwork and the minigames are cool so far.

    You mentioned minigames in the description, but I didn't seem to be able to find them or interact with anything. Was I missing something?

    EDIT: In response to your reply, I went back and played the minigamese. I really like the artwork and the different ideas present in them! I'd be interested in seeing the rest of the idea realized in the future. Congrats on getting it submitted still :)

      Sorry about that, to play the mini games you go to the stove in the kitchen and press enter. We were planning to have much more in all the other rooms, but unfortunately did not finish in time to include them.
