At the end when everything started to get dumped in the trash that hurt my soul-

That's such a waste of FOOD ASDFADGASFAFAFd

was crying during the credits watching all of it disappear lololol-

yumumumumumum (bunny chewing sound)

I enjoyed the vibe in the game, it saddens me that I could only eat a few and throwing the rest away, if only there's a mode without story and just that you could eat anything you want. Now I want to try hotpot in real life too :)


Can't believe how you managed to keep such optimism despite a situation that would have crushed me down so much!

Actually - I wish the game could teach me to cook the actual recipe - I'm Italian and I'd be very curious to learn. You never know ;)

Unfortunately, Currently the game only supports Windows 10, but we will try to make it compatible with more operating systems in our full version coming out next year! 


Awwwww thats ok do your best at making games :)

I had fun with this, even if I ended up wasting most of the food by accident.

Thank you for playing and giving valuable feedback! We will try to incorporate them in our full version coming out next year.  Happy to see a tofu fan  :) 

I played this game on my latest episode of my 'Funny Random Games' series on my YouTube channel! 😃

I played this game because I saw it and it made me hungry 🤣 but I had a lot of fun with it! Great job! 

Check out the video below! 

Thank you for playing! And glad to hear that you enjoyed it! 

Adorable game! Was giggling the whole time. My partner and I played it together, we're both from Asian cultures living in Europe. Everytime I'd drop a piece of food he would get annoyed, grab the mouse and pick it up hah. And the scene with the leftovers plus the "stats" at the end--we felt so guilty/attacked! Hilarious how Asian we still were even in-game haha. Thanks for making this, can't wait to see more of it and your work!

Glad you enjoyed the game, and thank you for sharing your story! It is always fascinating for us to see different responses to the game. 

We are currently thinking of releasing this game on Steam in the near future. You are welcome to follow us for the latest updates!

I loved the game! I could really resonate with the main character and I loved how such a simple action of eating food was created into a such a wonderful gaming experience.


Thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed it :)
