Hello everyone!

Epic Chef is a story-driven adventure game flavoured with life-sim farming, and crafting elements, blended into one delicious dish via an interactive cooking experience – all served with a side of humour and elaborate cast of characters. From humble beginnings you will build a farm, grow delectable ingredients, craft machinery, and cook your way to becoming the most Epic Chef in Ambrosia!

Check out our mouth-watering launch trailer below:

The world of Epic Chef is one full of lively NPCs, of cutthroats, brigands, pirates and friends. We happened to stumble across a missive detailing astute observations of Zest and the activities of Ambrosia, a travel blog of sorts.

Ambrosia – Restaurant Haven

When arriving in Ambrosia, the first thing that really catches the attention isn’t the rats scuttling about the port, (which are ever so quick to be picked up by the nearest Ambrosian for a tasty snack), but the plethora of restaurants which adorn the streets; from bijou eateries and restaurant fronts to decadent displays of grandeur. One thing is clear, Ambrosia is a place where the culinary arts are as important as your own kin.

And did I stumble into a treat! Two chefs engaged in culinary battle right before my eyes, with a judge proceeding before the two artisans to deem their dishes worthy or not, they chopped, stirred and sauteed like their very lives depended on it. I was informed by locals that Culinary Chef Battles are a regular occurrence in Ambrosia, and the winner who beats all other Chefs is crowned the Epic Chef, complete with the most grandiose of crowns. Exciting! I look forward to seeing more of these culinary battles during my time in Ambrosia.

Haunted Mansion on the Hill & Zest’s Farm

After stumbling through a few restaurants and chatting with locals once more, they informed me of a new spirited young chef named Zest who had recently arrived and moved into, and I quote, “The Haunted Mansion at the edge of town”. Apparently, a pioneer by trade, he had taken it upon himself to begin repairing and building up the house, even going as far to convert the nearby land into his own farm.

As I arrived at the farm, I couldn’t believe my own eyes as, amongst the numerous vegetables and well-grown produce, I stood face to face with not only a giant turtle but also a unicorn! My admiration and adoration were soon left fleeting as the unicorn was catapulted through the air and into a machine which I could only describe as a modified mincer. Apparently, such rare creatures are common livestock here in Ambrosia, and every part of them is used in the pursuit of their culinary heights… including their muck.

Nature’s Bounty

Far out from the port town harbour of Ambrosia, I spied a boat-full of fisherman, casting their nets and rods wide in order to fish up the tastiest of fish, crustaceans and molluscs. Again, all of this was just in pursuit of culinary heights as back on shore, as the octopus was quickly slung into an oven and cooked into what you see below. I’ve even heard tell of them using freshly cut logs as the base of exotic dishes! You certainly can’t argue that Ambrosian’s aren’t resourceful!

Whether you’re fishing, growing or taking part in livestock care, just about anything can be used to create a delicacy of delectable dishes, well… depending on your taste!
