    Thanks for the support bro, I'm glad you had fun with it!
    It's always nice to see someone catching a subtle reference like that, I honestly thought nobody would have realized where that name comes from, haha.

    Congrats for spotting the reference and thanks a lot for playing!

    Harold is my favourite character in this game. Gotta love how some of the judges seem to ooze a bit of their personality without saying a single word in the entire game. :kaojoy:

    @Susan
    Harold seems to be the favourite of many so far. And thanks a lot for the compliments, dear!
    Action speaks louder than words of course, you don't need to write countless dialogues to add a bit of flavour to your characters.

    @beekeepa
    There you go, have fun!:

    I would like to know if it works if you don't mind (so I can add it to the first post), sadly I don't have a Mac so I can't test it by myself.

    Thanks for the link Dalph, sorry for the late reply! The Mac version works great. Awesome game! You were able to establish some charm in the game almost immediately, I already had a smile on my face within the first few seconds. And I love the Harold bashing :) On the second round with Tinky we got a tie, but it made her the winner. That was a little frustrating, but then I realized I could just redo the round. This would be such a fun premise for a more fleshed out game! Cooking Contest RPG

    You are welcome and thanks a lot for the nice words! I'm really happy that the Mac version works smoothly and that you enjoyed the game!
    I think the reason of why many people seem to like Harold is related at how he is treated (a bit unfairly I must say but it's still funny to annoy him).

    About the tie:
    Sadly you are forced to beat the boss scores to succeed, since Dylan is the challenger and a newbie chef you basically start with a small disadvantage.

    I'm working on something related to it and will probably make a direct and bigger sequel too one day (I have some good ideas), only time will tell.
    Glad you enjoyed it though, thanks a lot for playing and for the excellent feedback!

    I added the Mac version to the first post and here on itch.io, so it will be easier for Mac users to download it.

    Harold biting that chunk of meat is really epic! Awesome work little sis! You really have a bright future as an artist!
    Thanks a lot, I will add it to the first post.

    @Kanki : Your drawing skills is great. Gotta love how Harold is chewing the meat. :kaoluv:

    @Dalph : Any chance you'll upload a version of which I can play on my phone or tablet? I'm sure the touchscreen control will work well. Yes, I know I'm too lazy to get off the couch and play on my computer. :kaolivid:

    You are welcome, thanks to you for the great art piece!

    @Susan
    As you wish, my dear!

    The version on itch.io can now be played directly through the browser from the game page itself!
    For those that don't want to download and unzip the file (yay for laziness!)

    This version is fully compatible with mobile devices too! Even the touchscreen works at 100%!
    All you have to do to play is to visit my game page on itch.io with your android phone\tablet\iphone\ipad\whatever!.

    Here's a screen of the game in action on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge:
    [​IMG]

    If you use an Android phone or tablet be sure to not use Google Chrome as a browser though (it might lag with some html5 games), just use the regular browser added in your phone to play the game smoothly.

    Touchscreen Controls (for mobile):
    - Tap to SELECT.
    - Tap with two fingers to CANCEL.
    - Tap and Move your finger-s UP and DOWN to SCROLL through the choices.
    (this one might be a bit unresponsive so I don't recommend doing it, just tap with one and two fingers)

    That's all for today!

    I finally defeated Chef #3. I had to cheat a bit.
    Spicy Fish, you never failed me.

    Thanks a lot for playing and congrats for winning!
    The spicy fish is a versatile dish in this game and can be often used without too many problems.

    I really appreciate that you found the time to play, especially considering how busy you are.

    Cheating is the only way to win against the Overlord, he makes the perfect dish so the only way to beat him is to do something that is completely outside the rules.

    Heya man. Just tried the game out and love the idea. Even better the fact that judges are always random and you have to figure out what dish they might like the best. I've had only a couple of goes so far, but not managed to beat the second chef yet. I got a tie with her the second time round, but the announcer still said that she won. Not fair! Those guys are cheating. :p

    @Matseb2611:
    Hey Matseb, thanks for playing! Glad you enjoyed so far.

    Sadly you are the challenger in the contest, therefore you are forced to beat the score of the official chef to win, it's even stated in the rules.
    TBH I thought about adding the "It's a Draw!" message, but it's exactly the same thing at the end, you still have to repeat the match and win to face the next chef. So what's the point? lol

    Lol, makes sense. No sudden death or anything. The judges are full. XD

    I'll play some more later so that I can at least see who this mysterious chef number 3 is.
    Very impressive that you've done all that in just 2 days. Good job!

    Thanks a lot!
    Chef number 3 is a bit tricky so be careful there and let me know how it goes.
    Good luck!

    The browser version works well on all my devices. Takes a few minutes to load on my Atom chip tablet, and the bgm plays after a short delay, but that's normal, even when I try to play MV games natively on it. I like how I can play it on whatever device I have on hand. Thanks for making this version. :kaothx:

    You are welcome! Thanks to you for letting me know that the browser version works on multiple devices! I was honestly a bit worried that it would have caused a few errors on some (I'm glad I was wrong).

    @Dalph :
    I think your game just broke my friend's 5 years old phone.... just when the third boss appeared. :kaocry:
    (ah well, it was due for an upgrade anyway)
