Marvelous Europe & XSEED Games to Publish Roguelike Cooking Indie, Cuisineer, This Summer

There’s No Such Thing as a Free Lunch in Award-winning Developer BattleBrew Productions’ Upcoming PC Game of Cooking and Combat

London, U.K. — 16 February, 2023 — Marvelous Europe and XSEED Games today announced that together they will be publishing the upcoming food-focused action roguelike, Cuisineer, on Windows PC via Steam in summer 2023.

Watch the trailer here:

Created by award-winning developer BattleBrew Productions, Cuisineer has already been served up critical acclaim as one of the BitSummit X-Roads 2022 Official Selections winner and as a PAX Together Pick at PAX East 2022.

"We’ve been cooking up Pom’s adventure by ourselves for a while, but we’re excited to have found supportive partners in XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe who feel as passionately about the game as we do and we can’t wait to be able to serve up Cuisineer to players around the world later this year!" said Shawn Toh, Co-Founder & CEO at BattleBrew Productions.

Pom’s passion may be for adventuring, but after receiving a concerning letter from her parents asking to see her one final time, she rushes to her hometown of Paell to find her parents gone and their beloved restaurant abandoned. Now it’s up to her to turn the eatery's fortunes around! Armed with her trusty spatula and a supply of refreshing boba tea, Pom will need to venture through dangerous and diverse dungeons to harvest all the ingredients she’ll need before returning home to cook up tasty dishes. Serve her loyal patrons, customize her dining hall with the help of local artisans, and watch out for the lunch rush!

“We are committed to supporting talented indie studios worldwide as we continue to publish unique and engaging titles” added Marc Melton, Marvelous Europe Managing Director. “The BattleBrew Productions team is incredibly talented, and we are delighted to work with them to bring Cuisineer into our growing roster of games.”
