Description

Mindcake is an indie building light-hearted discovery games! Our mission is simple: we make games that celebrate people and culture. We want players to have fun exploring the world!

History

Mindcake started in 2015 when two guys - one from an AAA publishing background, another a veteran indie developer - banded to make discovery and exploration games. Inspired by greats like "Carmen Sandiego", "Uncharted Waters: New Horizons" and the "Civilization" series, they wanted to pique people's interest about our wonderful world.

And what better way to start than with food?! Chef Wars is Mindcake's first game, a food discovery RPG launched on Google Play and iOS Appstore last October 2017! This was followed by Chef Wars Journeys in 2018, a simpler, more relaxing quiz and base game inspired by the original. Whether it’s the artistic flair of Japanese or French haute cuisine, or the family love wafting from a country stew – each recipe tells a unique story. And these stories unravel for players to discover in Chef Wars and Chef Wars Journeys!

  • "[Chef Wars] RPGs usually transport us to fantasy universes, spectacular matches, and epic stories. The problem is when there are hundreds and hundreds of video games cut by the same pattern. That is why it is important to defend titles like Chef Wars, a most original RPG in which we play fun culinary matches!"
    - Nelson de Benito, Uptodown
  • "[Chef Wars] The cute little RPG animations without the need to be constantly online makes Chef Wars the perfect middle ground between something simple like Candy Crush and something super complicated like MMORPGS. My entire family cannot stop playing this game and it has taught us a lot about the different cuisines from different cities!"
