CryoFall Dev.Blog #19 - Cooking
Hey there, friends! Today we have some tasty news to share with you - we've completed our cooking system and are now adding more tasty recipes to it. Now your character can eat not only some meat cooked on a stick over a fire, but also some proper and tasty things as well. Let's get more into it.
Let's take a look at images above. Those are finished meals straight from the game highlighting some of the many recipes and ingredients currently available in the game.
So, how it all works? First of all, you will need some basic components for cooking, like berries - then, after some cooking magic is done and other components added you can make it into a jam. And after that, this jam can be used in other recipes as well (or eaten right there on the spot). So, what it means is that there's going to be layers of recipes that can be used in other recipes, and the results can be rather unique. Obviously, different food will have different effects and nutritional value as in real life.
We are also trying to balance the system in such a way to make it interesting for everyone, there are going to be many recipes and they will all be useful, so even if you personally don't want to become a full blown chef, you can always do it as a hobby and\or to get some additional income by selling the food to other players.
And lastly, we'd like to remember about our previous entry - Farming. As you can understand, these two systems will be intertwined with each other deeply, creating a sort of ecosystem where either one player can be involved in all of this or provide one more basis for players' cooperation and interaction, where players can divide their duties and specialize in something. We believe that adding to and expanding this ecosystem will make the world of CryoFall feel more natural and more involving. We want to give everyone something they could find interesting. And more importantly we want to give you something new to do every time you start a new game!
