Hungry? These two new cooking sims let you kill and cook your customers

I love cooking in games, even if those games aren’t really about cooking. Recently I spent $1.3 million to bake a single cake Farming Simulator 22, and prior to that I baked thousands of cookies in city builder Patron (though I wouldn’t let anyone eat them). I also deep fried dozens of ingredients into a single horrifying meal in restaurant sim Recipe for Disaster—and it was, indeed, a disaster

Two new cooking sims caught my watchful eye this week, mainly because they have one gruesome gimmick in common. In both games, you use an unconventional method to fill your kitchen with delicious meat: You murder your customers and use them as ingredients in the meals you serve. Gross, yes. But I can’t deny the appeal of saving money on butcher bills.
