    The HTML5 version compatible with mobile devices has been removed from itch.io permanently, only the PC and Mac versions will be available from now on. It's a decision that I had to take really seriously because apparently someone thought it would have been fun to steal my work without even asking for my permission, while uploading it and make it playable on their fishy website and probably even trying to monetize with it.

    Thieves on the internet are always looking for data to steal such as personal information, financial records, intellectual property, or anything valuable, even a short mini-game like this one.
    Be careful out there, especially when you create something.

    I should have been honoured that they chose my game but I'm not, I'm just disappointed because I was planning to make a mobile-browser version even for my other game, Night of the Living Harolds, but recent events made me change my mind.

    I made sure that the responsible will be punished accordingly and their scam website will be shut-down.

    Thanks to everyone for understanding and for playing my game.

    edit: It's finally done. The provider shut down the stolen game page.

    @Dalph ,

    Here i am with the feedback.
    And overall i'm pleased with the short game.

    What did i like ?
    • I liked the opening, it right in your face:kaojoy:
    • Fully playable with mouse only.
    • There is a fun and energetic vibe in the game.
    • Harold is really pathetic.
    • Harold's applause was funny, no one is enthusiastic.
    • The line "He tasted almost every single thing known to man, both edible and no-" hahahahahahaha.
    • I laughed hard when i saw the "Super evil darker than dark overlord" that joined the cook-off challenge.
    • The appetizer "Something burned"
    • The dessert "Blackhole fondant" hahahahaha, that overlord tries a bit too hard to be evil :kaojoy:
    • Its golden comedy.
    • Its fun and easy.
    What i didn't like ?
    • I know its a short game, but i really enjoyed it and want more ;)
    • Ad space rental for your game for only $999.99/day (only for $999.99/day sounds better)
    • The ad space rental for $999.99/ is a rippoff XD.
    • During the credits, the game lagged for several seconds.
    • After "Who will explain Therese what happened" should come NEXT TIME IN DRAGONBA-.... Evil cook-off challenge XD.
    What did i notice ?
    • Dax Parrow sounds like "Jack Sparrow".
    • Tinky sounds like "Tinkerbell".
    • No options available (Fullscreen etc,)
    • After you completed the game, the game closes like "No retries, the game is over, bye".
    What can be improved ?
    • I have not noticed anything that should be improved ;)
    What can i suggest ?
    • Even though its optional, i can only suggest to make a full game of this, i like it ;)
    My final word.
    Dalph, you did a great job creating this game, it ran smooth, i found no bugs or glitches, its fun to play, fun to watch, and i laughed the whole way through, i felt Gordon Ramsay could barge in anytime XD.

    I look forward to the next part ;)

    Man I wish I could like a post more than once, I'm so glad you liked the game and the humour!
    There will be a much bigger sequel one day, I have a few crazy ideas that I want to implement at any cost in Rpg Maker.

    Thanks a lot for your time and for your fantastic feedback! I really appreciate it and I enjoyed reading through your post. ;)

    Also i forgot to mention that Al Dente Cooking Contest reminds me of the Banquet sequence of Breath of Fire II, it was such a great moment, in a frog kingdom you had to impress the King and other nobles, then you had to find and kill Golden bugs (Fly, beetle etc etc,) then the dishes are like Beetle Salad or Golden Fly pudding, no one was impressed (it was manipulated, they want another noble to win) and when the Frog hero plead like "please tell me you like my dishes", (you are human) you ate it and puked XD hahahahaha it was such an absurd but fun moment.

    Now I wanna go and play Breath of Fire II just to watch that scene (I only played III and IV). That sounds totally hilarious, hahaha.

    I played and completed Breath of Fire I, II, III, the first game was... awefully easy, the moment you had the Agni transformation you just have to say GG, no more grinding etc, the true final boss simply GG you won XD you have maxed stats, stay in Agni form until hp is depleted, deal max damage etc, its a joke .
    Breath of Fire II is my favorite, it starts kinda hard but once you gain a few levels you won't feel this unfairness. there is a large cast of characters.
    I shall look for the video and message you.
    Breath of Fire III was fun, but II is still better.

    Hey Dalph, so I played your games last night:

    I discovered I literally know nothing of food and cooking during this game xD Even so, I only had to replay the last cook-off battle once.
    That announcer sure was biased when reading the scores.
    Poor Harold. Why is there no love for him? After Aluxes, he clearly is the greatest hero ever.
    I loved the public sprites, it really felt like I was watching an actual cooking show.
    I wonder what the prize was and if now that you know who has it, what will happen to the world. (I mean he did promise annihilation) Are they all gonna die now?

    Anyway, kudos to you for all those food combinations. I hadn’t heard of some of those (or well most of those xD).

    @slimmmeiske2
    Hey slimmm, thanks a lot for checking out the game!
    I had to compromise with some ingredients, hahaha...and of course some recipes are pure fantasy.
    I actually do like Harold in some way (but don't tell anyone) that's why he has been added in two games, I wouldn't have bothered at all otherwise.
    I didn't reveal what the prize is and what will happen to the world because it has to be a mistery for now, but I will make a proper sequel soon to explain all these things and what are the real plans of the Overlord.
    Dylan has a much more important role than what people think, especially in the greater scheme of things.

    Thanks again for playing and posting! I really appreciate it!

    Curious fact:

    Today I was searching through my very old maps on this website and found this one (made 3 years ago with Ace).
    This screen can be considered a prototype version of "Al Dente" Cooking Contest, and made me remember that back then I already wanted to make this game a thing, but never got around finishing it, probably because it was too complicated for me to event it at that time.
    I completely forgot about it for 3 full years then @Susan something lit the fire in me again and made me finish it.

    lmao, while I agree about the Harold part and I would like to let you try it, that thing was "made" more than than 3 years ago, and 3 hard-drive crashes later there is absolutely no trace left of it.
    The prototype was most likely just an incomplete unplayable map and it's definitely gone for good, tbh even the pc used to make it is gone for good, lol.

    All that remains of it is that screenshot.

    Soon.

    TBH the sequel is a much bigger game in every way, and will require a lot more time to make than just 1 day like this one, but it'll do happen.

    @Dalph If the tortoise is any indication, I guess it'll probably take 100 years to complete such a huge sequel? :kaoswt2:

    Also, I always wondered, what made you decide to start the joke about Therese being Harold's babysitter? :kaohi:

    You forgot I'm the Evil Overlord and immortal, so I have all the time I need, not my fault if you humans have expiration date.

    [​IMG]
    My versions of Harold and Therese are based respectively on Kid Goku and young Bulma from the original Dragon Ball series.
    Goku in the original season was innocent, clumsy, childish, naive, a tad stupid, but unbelievably strong and pure-hearted, a bit like how Harold appears in Night of the Living Harolds.
    Bulma was the brain of the group, she was smart, grumpy, a bit ambitious, easily irritable, greedy, conniving, but always took care of Goku in a way and accompanied him in his journey (like some sort of babysitter, she even says it multiple times in the series).
    Therese isn't fully like Bulma (she is way less annoying and more heroic) but they have quite a few things in common.
    The two were total opposite and yet worked very well as partners.

    Of course Harold and Therese aren't exactly Goku and Bulma's copies, but they have their own new traits of personality that makes them more unique.

    What about the Harold dog, plant and other Harolds, they're like brothers of Harold....I think he cloned himself so he didn't feel lonely when Therese is away XD.

    For now I can only answer regarding Harold dog I'm afraid, lol.
    It's just a fear of Therese triggered after Overlord Namumrot says: "He will be my pet dog", because he jumps at food like one basically, so she imagines him being a puppy alongside marrying the Overlord.
    Funnily, in this game Harold and Therese don't say a single word, but their personalities can still be guessed by how they interact with each other, if they appear as judges together of course.
