Garry Williams, CEO of Sold Out, said, “Sold Out are proud once again to be in boxed partnership with Team17. With Overcooked they have found another smash hit that will continue to bring gamers together for local multiplayer chaos. This cute, yet quirky, game ticks all of the boxes for good, wholesome family fun, couch co-op at its finest. Overcooked isn’t just for families, however, it’s fun for adults too. What could be more fun than barking orders at your friends as you slide around while trying to cook fish and chips for penguins?”
Debbie Bestwick, Managing Director at Team17 added, “The reception to Overcooked thus far has been phenomenal. Being huge fans of the game ourselves, it’s fantastic to see the game doing so well for the wonderful Ghost Town Games. I’m constantly getting messages from friends, both inside and outside the games industry, telling me how Overcooked is the one game that they can play together with their partner or family. That’s why we knew we had to bring Overcooked to a wider audience via games retail as a boxed special edition. This is exactly the type of indie game retail should be supporting with such broad appeal, it’s the perfect go-to game for guaranteed fun during the fast approaching holiday season!”
