Overcooked Free on the Epic Games Store

The Last Day of June has come and gone, so the Epic Games Store is now offering Overcooked as their latest freebie. This is yours to keep if you pick up your copy within the next week, after which time Torchlight will take its place as their next gift. Here's word on the "crazy co-op cooking action" in Overcooked:
Overcooked is a chaotic couch co-op cooking game for one to four players. Working as a team, you and your fellow chefs must prepare, cook and serve up a variety of tasty orders before the baying customers storm out in a huff. Sharpen your knives and dust off your chef’s whites, there isn’t mushroom for error and the steaks are high in these crazy kitchens!

The Onion Kingdom is in danger and only the finest cooking can save it! In Overcooked players must journey through a variety of cruel and unusual kitchens on their quest to become master chefs capable of conquering an ancient edible evil which plagues the land.

Play solo or engage in classic, chaotic couch co-op for up to four players in both co-operative and competitive challenge modes. You’ll have to cook a range of different dishes and work together in order to become the most effective and ultimate team!

A CULINARY QUEST
The Onion Kingdom is a rich world full of cruel and unusual kitchens for you to conquer. Take part in an epic journey and tackle an increasingly challenging and bizarre gauntlet of kitchens which will push your skills of co-operation and co-ordination to the very limits. Each level brings a new challenge for you and your team to overcome, whether it's sliding around on a pirate ship, moving between speeding trucks, cooking on an ice floe or serving food in the bowels of a fiery underworld, each level will test the mettle of even the bravest chefs.

SIMPLE CONTROLS/DEEP CHALLENGE
Overcooked is so easy to pick up that anyone can join in the fun, but finding a team who can communicate and co-ordinate their actions when the pizza hits the fan, that's when only a well-oiled team of super-chefs will come out on top!

DIFFERENT WAYS TO PLAY
Whether indulging in deep fried local co-op or sautéed single player, as you play through the game you'll unlock new levels, new chef characters and even competitive challenge levels which allow teams of two to engage in hard boiled head-to-head in the kitchen.

However you want to play, if you think you can stand the heat, then get ready to enter the kitchen!

I find it ironic that Overcooked is free on an undercoooked platform.

Yep! This game rules, but so stressful my cafe employee wife cannot stand to hear it. And like Spelunky I seem to have it on 4 different platforms. Reminds me of Space Team communication wise, always a hit when there are kids over but it gets super crazy hard later on. It’s an angry celebrity chef simulator. Not a fun single player game at all, human incompetence is part of the fun like with Payday 2 or Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.

Same here, the only game I paid for on EGS is Metro exodus, and since this was a physical edition I did not even pay epic for that one.

If this type of thing causes free games to return to Origin and become more common again on Steam, I am all for it.

What EGS seems to be doing for developers is good, but so far it hasn't exactly done much to generate any real competition that benefits customers. Both of those are good titles and Subnautica was an excellent one.

Snagged. So far the only game I have purchased on EGS is Satisfactory.
