## About This Game
Recipe for Disaster is a restaurant management and social simulation game that
puts you in the shoes of an inexperienced, but ambitious, head chef working
towards fulfilling your lifelong dream of becoming an internationally renowned
restaurateur. Along this journey you will be tasked with carefully designing
restaurants, hiring and managing the right staff, customising food menus, and
experimenting with ingredients to create tasty new dishes that will impress
your customers. Sounds idyllic right?
Blazing a trail through the highly competitive, fast-paced and stress-inducing
world of the food-service industry will be anything but straightforward. After
all, this is an industry built around people, and keeping everyone happy,
motivated, and fulfilled will require nothing short of a miracle!
Serious personality clashes and major skill gaps within your team could really
disrupt the flow of service, whilst the volatile attitudes and peculiar tastes
of your customers may prove to be the barrier that separates you from those
all important positive review scores.
With perseverance, savvy management, and a great deal of compromise, your
restaurant will grow, opening up new opportunities and challenges as you
attract ever more demanding customers and critics through your doors. Expand
your premises, improve your staff, and walk the precarious line between
gastronomic glory and restaurant ruin.
Assemble your dream team – Pick from a pool of procedurally generated
hopefuls. Consider each individual’s unique combination of traits and skill
levels, and how these might affect their work efficiencies, relationships, and
customer interactions. Will they fit in? Or will they prove to be more trouble
than they’re worth?
Restaurant building – Customize the design and layout of your restaurants
using intuitive building tools and a range of colourful themes. Equip your
kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, decorate your dining area, and build
storage to hold those precious ingredients.
Get your priorities straight – Manually assign tasks to your team or keep
everyone busy using a highly customisable priority system. Keep a close eye on
incoming customer orders and adjust your strategy in real-time to ensure the
highest standard of food and customer service.
Work ethics – Manage your team’s attitude and stamina levels to minimise the
risk of sickness and mid-service walkouts. Some staff will love the tasks that
you give them whilst others will loathe them! Be alert to staff thoughts,
temporary and permanent trait changes, and evolving relationships within your
The customer is always right – Pay close attention to the demands of your
customers and adjust your menu to match their tastes. Be wary of dietary
requirements, food allergies and unusual preferences.
Everyone’s a critic – Decide how best to deal with the requests and complaints
of your staff and customers. Will you be sympathetic or combative? Pushovers
and tyrants will soon find themselves out of business so you’ll have to read
each situation carefully.
A matter of taste – Work with reliable, and dubious, supplier contacts to
secure a diverse array of ingredients. Use the intuitive recipe editor to
freely create original recipes and add them to your menus.
…and that’s just for starters – Updates planned for cooperative and
competitive multiplayer, additional themes and room types, health inspections,
staff rotas, disasters, and comprehensive modding support.
