Unfinished: Battle Chef Brigade 10/19/2016

Alex and Mina fight, gather, and cook their ingredients to impress their dark masters... or the judge... I guess.

Sometimes we look at a game before it's done. When that's the case? Well... it must be Unfinished.

Hm this might be pretty cool. Will people's clothes fly off when they taste the food though?

After reading the description I thought Mina was Austin's replacement. I was wrong.

Her fighting style reminds me of Ryogi Shiki. I hope they add few more frames on her jumping animation, and more weapons?

This seems rad. The closest I'll probably ever get to a Shokugeki no Souma game.

If you like how this looks and plays, you MUST play Odin's Sphere and the Indivisible Prototype! They're a masterpieces!

I thought the game will be about randomly throwing everything into the pot but the game taking them into account for the final dish is great. Definitely looking forward to the final version.

Sadly, 'skitter' is Northern Irish slang for diarrhoea. Not what you'd want in a cooking game...

I had doubts about this when I saw snippets of it, but seeing it played makes me excited for the final product. It looks like an action game I can relax with.

I love the animation in this, some of the background art needs polishing up but this is looking really cool.

@citizencoffeecake: Note: Battle Chef Brigade is a cooking game.

This game looks really good for what it is. I kind of hope things get more animated in the full version. The art looks really good so I hope there are more moving parts in the full game.

This game looks so comfy

Happy to hear it's an early backer copy though because while I enjoy what I see I sure would like more polish like quality consistency in the the art.

Doesn't look too bad! It could use a little polishing here and there, but otherwise it seems like a game I may play!

Loving the artstyle, its seriously good. But right now I do not think that the gameplay is for me.

Maybe I'm loving these games agian when the next decade hits me. Somehow, my preferences in Video Games change every 5-10 years or so.

Thanks for showcasing this @alex and @vinny! Showing high-quality but otherwise niche games that you guys think are interesting, is one of my favourite things about this site. Now I have a whole new game I never heard of to look forward to.

Their website links to everyone who is currently working on this game, which is just so cool! I love it when you can see the people behind a small team.

The art looks so good! Weird how the judges don't seem to care if the dish doesn't use the required ingredient as the main "hero" ingredient though.

Well you don't move around in an environment at all in CSD so it doesn't really work.

Someone copied BONES' artstyle circa Eureka Seven and did it REALLY WELL. I had to do a double take and look up the artists to verify they weren't actually Japanese. It's kind of amazing how well they captured the style.

I'm legitimately surprised Vinny was able to namedrop Etrian Odyssey. I didn't think anyone at Giantbomb gave that series more than a passing thought.

Anyway, this game seems pretty rad. I had no idea it existed until now, but I will be keeping my eye on it now
