Overcooked! All You Can Eat offers Accessibility options and Assist mode

By videogamesaction

Hey everyone! Following our announcement in July, we wanted to serve up another helping of information about Overcooked! All You Can Eat and some of the ways that we are making it the most accessible version of Overcooked! yet.

We know that Overcooked! is a game that people like to enjoy with their friends and family, and so we wanted to make sure that Overcooked! All You Can Eat has options available to offer a less chaotic co-operative cooking experience.  

Assist Mode  

Assist Mode introduces a number of features that lower the difficulty; perfect for new players, younger players, or those of you who just want to cook without the yelling. When you start a new game you will get the option to select Assist Mode, which will include:

  • Increased Round Timer
  • Increased received score
  • Increased time to create recipe

You will also be given the option to toggle recipe timeouts on and off – no more failed orders!

Accessibility options

Colour-blind friendly Chef indicators

To account for those with colour-blindness, chefs will now be indicated not just by colour but by shapes. We liked this feature so much that we decided to keep it on permanently!

  • Player One, Blue, Circle
  • Player Two, Red, Triangle
  • Player Three, Green, Square
  • Player Four, Yellow, Hexagon

Dyslexia-friendly text

Within the accessibility options menu, you can select dyslexia-friendly text for all dialogue boxes.

 Scalable UI

There is also an option in the accessibility menu that will allow you to adjust the size/scale of text in the following places:

  • Subtitles
  • Menu Descriptions
  • Legend Text
  • Team Management Menu

 Menu overhaul

As well as all of the above, we have totally overhauled the menu systems in order to offer seamless navigation between the games and DLC. Due to the huge variety of chefs in Overcooked! All You Can Eat, we have completely redone the chef selection screen. Here you can see all 60 chefs (including two new secret ones 👀), each chef has 2-3 alternate skins which means we have over 120 in total!

We look forward to bringing you more information soon, including a look into the PlayStation 5 and DualSense wireless controller features that we have implemented in Overcooked! All You Can Eat!

 See you in the kitchen!
