Trinket Studios, a trio of game makers from an independent games collective on the Chicago outskirts, is looking to do just that. Their game—Battle Chef Brigade—aims to capture the intensity of today’s cooking competitions and blend it with all the spellcasting and dragon slaying of the fantasy role-playing genre.
Trinket Studios’ promise for Battle Chef Brigade is “fantasy Iron Chef.” If all goes according to plan, you will be able to enter the battle pantry, slay a dragon, and bring its tasty meat back to the kitchen for preparation. Afterward, your pan-seared, herb-crusted fillet of dragon will face tasting and judging by a panel of experts. It’s a three-stage cooking contest that will let you experience the thrills of creature combat alongside creative cooking.
