A Shift from Nostalgia to Technology: Cooking games

Did you know the kitchen toys industries are trying their best to overcome the technology pressure they are facing today? Back in the days you only had the standard toy cutleries and maybe at times a mini stove or a cylinder! Kids often stole food from the kitchen to serve in their tiny restaurant games. Later to ooze out creativity, toy industries began developing assorted food toys that came along with the kitchen set.

Today the picture is different. All this has taken the face of pixels. Or in better words restaurant games have become an online video gaming platform. Considering the fun aspect of playing a game, online kitchen games have raised the bar high! Remember how you used to roll the dough in a physical restaurant game? Or the mock tea making? It’s quite hilarious to recollect but all of this has reshaped in better business tools and inventories. You now get a conveyor belt and various ingredients to make your recipes and run your restaurant. Also, you don’t have to fetch a friend or two to eat your uncooked batter. Gaming has evolved with reality. Believe it or not, kitchen games consider localisation and even consumer behaviour to develop these games. Isn’t this reflecting important aspects of business development?

When you were the little chef in your cooking game, you always anticipated good chef compliments. Maybe you always got one. It’s just a similar scenario on online restaurant games unless you mess up with too much sauce or serve garlic bread to the person who is allergic to garlic. It’s just funny that this infuriated customer comes back again tomorrow to your restaurant for his supper. Beware! No more rookie mistakes, that customer’s headed your way to order his regular bread.

Getting customers or collecting leads is difficult. We all understood this in our childhood. Your sibling or your naive dog was probably the clientele. Unless you pulled in the neighbour’s kid who is just unaware of what’s being served. Cooking games today, not only show you the clientele but also show the various behaviours associated with them. Stella, who came in the morning for a quick coffee, was flattered by the service you provided but when she came in for the meal, she didn’t believe the service was 100%, maybe because you only forgot to add extra pepperoni. Consequently, giving young minds an understanding of the ups and downs of a business.

It’s so influential that today games not only bring out the fun but also teach essential aspects of business that come out handy in order to thrive in the business industry. How else a child should grasp the management and business basics in a highly competitive and intriguing way? Cooking games today are a huge spectrum of understanding real-life business, calculating profit & loss percentage and also understanding the budget. Who would have thought that an entertainment game could yield so much knowledge and essential business skills?
