Nour: Play with Your Food was announced for PlayStation 5 nearly a year ago, and our collective tummy has been rumbling at the prospect of this appetising culinary playground since. Originally pencilled in for release this summer, developer Terrifying Jellyfish has made the decision to give the game a little more time to cook.
Announced via its Kickstarter page, this unusual game will now be ready for consumption in early 2022, so you’ll have to go hungry for just a little bit longer. The team made the call for a delay “after talking through the state of the game after how much it’s grown”, and says the extra time will ensure it’ll be “as cohesive and polished as we had always planned”. PS5‘s DualSense is mentioned specifically: “We really want the PS5 DualSense features to be dope, so that folks who play on that platform will be able to really feel the game as they play it,” the update reads. “A food game just makes sense to have extra care put into its controller haptics!”
For those who might be unfamiliar, Nour: Play with Your Food is an indie title in which you muck about with food and drink, with no real goals or objectives. It’s a sandbox with lots of food-themed scenarios that let you go nuts — throwing pancakes around, dropping fruit into refreshing beverages, and making toasters explode, if you want. In the latest trailer (above), you can see how the game is also somewhat musical, with an adaptive soundtrack that evolves while you play.
We’re looking forward to abandoning our table manners and playing with our food next year, then. Are you excited to check out Nour: Play with Your Food on PS5? Grab a napkin in the comments section below.
