Perils of Baking, the gastronomic platformer from Lillymo Games – a one-man team at the time – is getting a fully-fledged remake inspired by the 16-bit era of Super Nintendo and SEGA Mega Drive classics. Predictably renamed Super Perils of Baking, the throwback outing has been effectively remade for Sony’s current crop of consoles – that’s the PlayStation 5 and PS4, to be precise – with a storybook plot to boot.
You’ll play as the brother of a chef who succumbs to the power to bring his culinary creations to life, and you’ll need to feast your way through 50 levels in order untangle the secrets of this potentially disastrous soufflé. The developer’s promising an accessible experience that’s relatively easy to pick up but challenging to master, and much like the firm’s past titles such as Habroxia 2, there’ll be various secrets to find – including a bestiary which, ingeniously, doubles as a recipe book.
The embedded trailer should leave your taste-buds tingling, but if you find your stomach rumbling already, it’s worth noting that this has been in the oven for a while, and will be served up piping hot on 3rd June.
