Publisher Panic and developer Terrifying Jellyfish have announced food sandbox Nour: Play With Your Food will be delayed into Early 2022.
The game was originally set to launch this Summer. However, as revealed in an update on the game’s Kickstarter, it will now release early next year. “Even though we’d love to serve this dish ASAP, we know the extra time will be great for the game,” designer TJ Hughes said. “If you’ve seen our latest trailer, you’ll quickly see we’ve added some features (there’s even more that hasn’t been shown off yet!). With the game being so much more robust than before, we still want it to be as cohesive and polished as we had always planned.”
Hughes also mentions the extra time will allow the indie team to “tighten design in a few different areas” referring specifically to the game’s touted DualSense features. It seems like the studio has also decided to experiment with the game’s story. “We’ve also been thinking about narrative, and ways we can experiment with that.”
Nour: Play With Your Food was first revealed to be coming to PlayStation 5 last summer. Said to be “an experimental food art game with no goals or objectives” it’ll allow you to literally play—and make music—with a whole range of foods. The game is now set for release Early 2022 on PlayStation 5, PC and Mac.
🍜 Our next and most delicious video game — Nour: Play With Your Food — needs a little bit more time in the oven. And that's just fine with us, because this PlayStation 5 and Mac/PC masterpiece will be well worth the wait. Here's TJ with all the details: https://t.co/MUAlwieETO
