Team17 has revealed that its upcoming puzzler Automachef will be cooking up a treat on Switch next month. You'll be able to get your cleverly programmed robot arms on it from the 23rd July.
If you've missed our previous coverage on this one, the game comes from indie developer Hermes Interactive and has players masterminding their own intricate, automated kitchens. We had the opportunity to try the game out for ourselves just a few weeks ago, so make sure to read our early impressions if you'd like to learn more.
Before you head off to do that, though, here are a few key features:
- Three tasty modes! Take on the campaign levels, build a business in Contracts Mode or play untethered in Test Site Mode
- Feisty robots! Well, robot. Throughout your time in Automachef, you will be accompanied by Robert Person, who will offer you help and abundant charm.
- Machines! From the order reader to the assembler and everything in between, you must tell each machine what it needs to do (they can’t think for themselves…yet)
- Human food! Whether it’s cheeseburgers or salads, each recipe requires different machines with different commands to make it… and don’t even get me started on combo meals!
-Blueprints! Created the perfect production line? Save your plans as blueprints to use in future kitchens.
As we mentioned above, the game arrives on Switch on 23rd July. A free demo for the game is also now available on Steam if you'd like to give it a go before buying.
