Now we're cooking!
NACON and studio Cyanide are pleased to announce that their new LIFE series simulation game, Chef Life: A Restaurant Simulator, is now available for Switch in Europe (scheduled for release on March 28 in America). The game allows players to immerse themselves in the life of a restaurant owner and progress to the point where they can hope to be selected by the MICHELIN Guide and even receive its famous culinary awards: to do so, they must excel in the kitchen, choose the best ingredients and rely on their team to satisfy their customers every day.
Players put on their apron and immerse themselves in the life of a restaurant owner with all the realism that the LIFE range seeks to offer. From selecting ingredients to choosing suppliers, managing the brigade and decorating the kitchen, the game offers a management and simulation experience that meets the expectations of budding cooks. As in the real world, players must prepare for the arrival of an anonymous inspector who may select them for inclusion in the famous MICHELIN Guide. In order to faithfully reflect the eminence of the MICHELIN Guide awards, Chef Life also offers restaurants that are honored with the award the opportunity to receive an official outfit and plaque associated with the award in-game.
In order to create a restaurant that resembles them, restaurant owners have a great deal of freedom to make decisions for their establishment. The decoration of the dining room, the layout of the dishes, the choices made allow their cuisine to reflect their personality! Finally, whether their goal is to achieve culinary excellence or to be the family restaurant that brings their neighborhood to life, Chef Life: A Restaurant Simulator fulfills all the aspirations of gourmets!
The varied and iconic recipes challenge players to test their mastery of French and Italian gastronomy. Improving their simple recipes to make them gastronomic dishes, adapting their menu to the seasons and to the expectations of their customers allow the players to reach their goals.
Many criteria are used to judge the excellence of their cuisine according to the famous methodology of the anonymous inspectors of the Guide, based on the choice of products, the mastery of culinary techniques and the harmony of flavors. In addition, the consistency of the quality of the experience offered to customers will be evaluated.
If their restaurant is up to par, players can hope to be selected by the MICHELIN Guide. This initial recognition rewards the good management and quality of their establishment. Next, players may decide to covet the Bib Gourmand, an official distinction awarded to players whose restaurant offers affordable prices while ensuring high quality dishes. Or, depending on his or her ambition, he or she may covet the iconic Etoile du Guide MICHELIN. In this case, it is the excellence of the cuisine and the perfect respect of the criteria of the famous Guide that will determine if the restaurant deserves the title of Etoile Restaurant.
