Developed for players of all ages, from beginners through to
experts , the free-to-play game will present a cunning culinary
challenge set by Hugh himself in a variety of animated, yet very
familiar River Cottage settings – the kitchen, the hedgerow,
the orchard and the garden.
Players must identify an array of food-related items from the
commoner spring onion and Cep mushrooms to saucepans and ladles
against the clock in order to access over a selection of delicious
fruity recipes, which players can then recreate at home.
As well as several locations and elusive ingredients to unlock,
the fastest foragers can also win time bonus points. These extras
can also be attained by making in-app purchases.
The River Cottage To The Core game was commissioned by Colin
Macdonald, Commissioning Editor for Games at Channel 4 and created
by Keo Digital and Swindon-based game developers Evil Twin
Simon Deverell, Creative Director of Keo Digital comments
"Working with Channel 4 and Evil Twin, we've created an engaging,
educational and fun game, which we hope will introduce River
Cottage to new audiences." James Carroll, Owner at Evil Twin adds
‘We are big River Cottage fans, so when the chance came to
work on this, we couldn’t wait to say yes!
