Tuesday, 15th September 2020 – Team17 and Ghost Town Games have today announced that Overcooked! All You Can Eat, which launches later this year on next-generation consoles, will open the chaotic kitchens to more players of all abilities than ever before, offering both a brand-new assist mode and a platter of expanded accessibility options.

 

Overcooked! All You Can Eat’s assist mode will include a number of features that tweaks the experience, including the ability to increase level times; boost scores awarded for each meal; lengthen the recipe times; and the option to turn off the order expiration. Additionally, the game’s accessibility options will include the ability to activate dyslexia friendly text; include colour blind friendly chef indicators; and feature a scalable user interface.
