Immerse yourself in a compelling storyline, unlock new ingredients and recipes and become the best food provider in the wastelands!

Cooking in a post-apocalyptic wasteland!

After a long journey across the wastelands in search of your long-lost family, you’ve stumbled upon a well-preserved shelter located in an area known as Sector 12. The radio towers visible on the horizon might prove useful in finding your relatives, but you won’t be able to fix them without the help of the nearby settlements. However, the other survivors won’t be so eager to help a complete stranger. You’ll need to earn their trust first and that’s where your cooking skills come in. As the only skilled cook in the Sector, you’ll become the main food supplier for its inhabitants. Bake, cook, fry, and grill mutant meat, glowing mushrooms, and other post-nuclear ingredients.

To find out more about the new features, check out the latest devlog. Shelter DLC requires the Cooking Simulator base game.

Cooking Simulator – Shelter DLC will be available November 18th on Steam with a 15% launch discount!
