Updated 3rd November, 12:20 PM: The space-tastic board game about cooking up neat treats and foreign cuisine is now out.

Grab Space Food Truck on the App Store for iPad (iOS 9.1 or later) for £7.99/$9.99.



Sometimes you come across a game that's as terrifyingly bizarre as it is endearing, and Space Food Truck is definitely one of them.

Space Food Truck is a co-operative deck building game/digital board game in which you scour the galaxy searching for exotic ingredients. The aim of the game is to craft delicious dishes and deliver them to hungry planets. The ultimate goal is to complete every recipe before your ship falls apart to win the game. Like I said: utterly bizarre but endearing.

With four potential characters to embody, each person will have their own deck of cards. Whether you play as a scientist, a captain, a chief, or engineer, each person has to pull their weight if you want to make it across the galaxy in one piece.

You can guess from the word 'co-operative' that the game is best played with up for three other people. If four of you play, you'll each have your own characters. If less of you take part, you'll have to keep an eye on multiple parties – and you can play the game totally by yourself if you want.

Coming to iOS and Android tablets on November 3rd, we'll be sure to keep you updated should anything change.
