The First Hour: Overcooked 2
The sequel to last year’s surprise Switch success story, Overcooked 2 casts a team of players as chefs in preposterously improbable kitchen service scenarios. Working a few shifts in sushi restaurants with awkward layouts is par for the course, requiring communication and delegation of tasks between players (or a single player can swap between two chefs). But later levels are set in mines, haunted castles, and alien planets, introducing new and fantastic elements to familiar scenarios that mix up cooking stations. Conquering this game will require skill, flexibility, and communication between the teams of players.
