In a not so distant future, the puzzle game Neon Noodles takes place in a robot kitchen. We have to prepare food according to given recipes and program our little robot helpers. And to do this as effectively as possible is the challenge in this game. It’s all about automated programming of procedures and the tricky arrangement and timing behind it.

German Version:

The small indie developer studio Vivid Helix presents Neon Noodles, a new game that, similar to the very popular Overcooked 2, deals with the complex processes in a kitchen. Kitchen recipes are often very complex and in Neon Noodles we have to teach our robot assistants these recipes. And they become very quickly more and more complex as the game progresses.

In a dark and mysterious cyberpunk world, you’ll be in charge of the futuristic food factory Neon Noodles. Inspired by popular mechanical engineering puzzle games from Zachtronics such as Opus Magnum and Infinifactory, you’ll design and build your own fully automated kitchen where you’ll prepare meals with the help of robot chefs. Guacamole, Bibimbap, Ramen, Spätzle, Paella and many other recipes are waiting to be optimized by you.

In this kind of puzzle game it is mostly about automating increasingly complex processes by machines. As a player, you gradually manage more and more complex systems by adjusting many small controls. And it’s a very satisfying feeling when you get a grip on this complexity little by little and then you can watch how the complex systems you have designed yourself gradually function without any errors.
