*clears throat*

foodlab is a project that I've been tirelessly (okay, a bit tired-edly) cooking up for the last month. what started during PROCJAM 2019 as an attempt at an idea that I had for a long time, sucked me in for three more weeks and turned into this lovely little game that I present to you today.

the original idea was to make a thing that allows for combining food items to create new ones. as I was making this project I realized that even with pre-made assets, it's a lot more effort than I imagined. also, it's nice to have something more than just the system itself.

so this is a prototype of sorts, to test the water (it's boiling ouch). it's now a physics-based food… simulator. all feedback is welcome. if there's one thing you don't like, or a bug you encounter, let me know in the comments! I'll be more than happy to read what's on your mind. I like reading minds.

and feel welcome to share any photos you take! I can't wait what to see what you all daredevils come up with. if you're doing Twitter, remember to use the hashtag #foodlabthegame — I checked it, it's available, and now it's ours.

If you skip the tutorial you can figure it out on your own, but if you can't you'll question your worth as an adult.
