Welcome to this week’s installment of F2P Friday, where we highlight our favorite Free-2-Play games. The video game market is oversaturated, and sometimes, hidden gems fall through the cracks. This is where we dig for you and feature a new F2P game we know you will enjoy every week. Let’s dive in. 

Little Chef 

Little Chef invites you to participate in a fun and tasty 2D cooking game full of details and amazing physics in which you will have to experiment and enjoy creating the craziest and craziest cooking recipes. Hello Erika, Julien Truebiger and Danny van Duist developed this vibrant game.

The Basics

Let’s get down to the basics. Little Chef is a cozy, relaxing puzzle game with a drag-and-drop mechanic. The Potion Craft-inspired game is easy to understand even without the tutorial and is accessible to even novice game players. Chefs test new recipes using what’s in your pantry and around the kitchen by adding up to five ingredients into the pot. 

The cookbook on the left side of the screen has a section with normal recipes and cursed ones. If you need direction on what ingredients to add to the pot, you can study the book’s names and recipe shapes.

Why Should I Play? 

Why should you play Little Chef? Fans of puzzle games and cozy titles will love this sweet experience. The notes in the recipe book add a charming depth to the world beyond the kitchen and act like a journal for the player to pick up story hints. The music and soundscaping work perfectly with the soft art style, making for an enjoyable playthrough. 

The recipes can be discovered through trial and error. The key to filling out the recipe book is picking up as many items as possible and adding them to the pot (even if they aren’t food). I wish you could unlock more food for an expanded recipe book, but overall, the game is short but enjoyable.
