In Space Chef, you are an aspiring chef with only a simple space-trailer and the remnants of your grandma's cookbook to your name. Will you rise to the challenge? Build your home, explore the galaxy, cook up cosmic cuisine, and become the greatest space chef in the universe!
- COOK WITH OUT-OF-THE-WORLD INGREDIENTS
Chop, grill and fry your way to success using a big selection of the finest alien ingredients.
- SHOTGUN OR SPATULA?
Explore the galaxy to hunt for ingredients; from your own basement to the distant ice planet of Cubo, home to the most dangerous lemmings in the universe. The Ratoid in your basement might look disgusting, but a starving Zublorgian will pay good money for a grilled one on a plate with some cheese.
- DELIVER YOUR FOOD ACROSS THE GALAXY
Some places are more fatal than interesting, but Rusty Town is one settlement where you’ll find nice, hungry customers.Don’t miss Zlurka’s for drinks, gossip and some late night Graffle-riding. Beware of the Galactic Police if you’re smuggling illegal ingredients, like the rare stinking red Blurgon Fruit.
- EVERYONE'S HUNGRY
Watch out for hungry space pirates, who will do anything to stop you from delivering your food. Defend yourself using a space blaster built from an old broken BBQ and some gunpowder. Or make some delicious deliveries to the pirate leader and have them as allies against competing food delivery services.
BlueGooGames was founded in 2019 by two childhood friends, Niclas and Tobias, and is based out of Helsingborg, Sweden. They have been working on their first title Space Chef since then. The game raised $45,000 USD on Kickstarter in 2021 and have since expanded the team to 10 people.
