Chefs Legendby LTyrosine - Jam Entry
=== How to play ===
Mouse only, the entire gameplay is about dragging things around to prepare dishes. Please, if you have time, play the tutorials in sequence to get in the mood, even better if you are hungry =)
This game supports the full screen option of ludumdare site.
== Description ===
Now you are inside a box kitchen/farm and must try to become a chef master even in such limited space.
Credits: L-Tyrosine, after 72 long hours of insane rush! 80% of planned is here so I'm happy with the result.
Thanks for playing and happy LD to us all
=== Quick help, FAQ and hints ===
Q: How to complete tutorials / how to get paid ?
A: You must place your amazing ready dish/products on the box in the lower right of the screen and press "Pack". It will analyze your entry (no, not your game, your food), checking for quality with a nightmare algorithm that took me like 5 or 6 hours to be done. At the comp version of this game, here is the list of things that it will recognize: raw corn, raw corn grains, cooked corn, cooked corn grains, popcorns and corn oil.
Q: All I'm getting from the packer is a message that my food is trash or low quality.
A: Robots don't have feelings, sorry for that. The reason is that you must submit only one type of food without other impurities (water, oil and so on). Work with fresh food (spoiled food turns darker). Food gets spoiled with time and if dropped on the soil. If it's cooked, try to find the right point (avoid overcooking/undercooking). The packer has some tolerance over these aspects but better safe than sorry.
Q: The food spoils too quickly
A: Foods inside pots or inside the packer box never spoils! Sorry I really should mention it inside the game. I could blame short time but the truth is that I totally forgot.
Q: Hot to turn on the oven?
A: Just grab a corn stem into the grid box (the stem will be consumed in the process).
Q: And where I can get one stem?
A: By planting a corn grain on wet soil. They eventually will grow from there, up to 3 in height. Then you can get one by applying force with mouse drag or dropping something heavy on it (a pot). The epic win would be to harvest the last one (3rd) to conserve your plantation but good luck to achieve this =D
Q: My corn grain won't germinate
A: Make sure that the soil below is wet (darker) enough by watering it. Wait some time, give the poor grain some time to fulfill its destiny.
Q: Is the drainer useless?
A: It can really help to separate water/oil from food. The trick is to place food on the bottom of the pot and the water/oil above in the cooking stage. Then when you turn the pot the water/oil goes first and chances are that the drainer will work perfectly.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
