While a hectic game to say the least, Overcooked is ultimately about resource control and space cooperation. With four whole players running throughout a kitchen, filling out orders, and cooking whenever possible, communication is key when it comes to distributing jobs and food items. This is especially true in the later stages, where the ability to move throughout the whole kitchen is variable, and losing time because of falling off the edge of the floor becomes a very real concern.
