The Cook, Serve, Delicious! series has been with us since 2012 with a sequel released in 2017. It’s a series that gives me a great way to unwind, even if utter chaos is happening on the screen. So in this apocalyptic year of 2020, Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is making it’s way into our hearts once again but wouldn’t you know it, the apocalypse has also come to CSD!
Rare is the opportunity for players in Western culture to get exposure to games steeped in mythology and iconography from other parts of the worlds. Many of the games we play from other parts of the world have either been heavily influenced by the juggernaut of American pop culture, or are filtered through the lens of interpretation, losing subtlety and authenticity in the process. When something like Raji: An Ancient Epic comes along, a bona fide adventure set in ancient Indian culture and its rich, storied mythologies, it is an instant head-turner.
