Acute Owl Studio's undead cooking game Bone's Cafe is coming to Switch on 31st March, and it looks absolutely to die for. The game launched on Steam last year to extremely positive reviews, and now it's rising from the grave to make its mark on the eShop.
Taking inspiration from Overcooked, in Bone's Cafe, you're a necromancer who's dropped out of school in order to open your own cafe. That's everyone's dream in college, right? Well, you can use those necromancy powers to run that cafe, and you'll get to customise the layout, tell your minions what to do, and work together with friends.
And just like the hugely popular cooking party game, Bone's Cafe is a couch co-op experience that you can play with friends and family. Accompanied by adorable pixel graphics and a peppy soundtrack, your army of skeletal chefs and spooky servers will need to keep all manner of weird and wonderful creatures happy. Oh, and you can harvest ingredients from your customers. How delightful.
Here's a rundown of the game from Acute Owl Studio:
Bone’s Cafe is a fast paced, 1-4 Players couch co-op, cooking game. Customize the layout of your kitchen to guarantee your success. Specialize your menu in ingredients and recipes to design your ultimate cafe. Put your necromancy skills to the test and raise your own undead kitchen staff.

Total there are so many, many games on the Nintendo consoles. This one is cooking game. It can be fun.
Or I could always play Overcooked if I wanted to? This looks like it literally just has a different coat of paint on it.
I feel like a health inspector would have a field day with this.
This seems interesting. I wonder how it looks on a TV, because taking the first image as reference, it seems a little bit hard to identify all the elements on screen.
I really appreciate these kind of chaotic co-op games. Overcooked, Snipperclips and Moving Out are family favorites here.
I don't think me and my partners' 11 year relationship could survive another game like this xD I swear if we played overcooked daily I would've packed my bags long ago, I'm a panicker okay (is that even a word?) so I do not do well under pressure
So it's a big fat nope from me, but I hope people enjoy it, these games are great especially for getting people into gaming who wouldn't normally like older family members or y'know your friends who have social lives and don't just game all their free time xD
@Nanami_Ataraxia I can see where you're coming from xD
These kind of party games can certainly be hectic with all the pandemonium that's happening on screen. Personally i'm not too fond of such games as well, i find them anxiety-inducing >.<
