Some things are just better if you use your hands, and cooking is most certainly on that list. During the summer Flat Hills Games launched Clash of Chefs VR for Oculus Quest and Quest 2 – as well as moving the PC VR version out of early access – serving up a multitude of cooking options. Today, the studio has announced the launch of a free update adding hand tracking to the Oculus Quest version.
So now you can put down your controllers and enjoy the frantic cooking experience with that added touch of realism, using your hands to cut veg, construct burgers and more. As the demo video below showcases, you can interact with everything, squeezing the sauce bottles, crushing paper cups, patting the pizza dough flat and waving to your opponent in multiplayer.
Clash of Chefs VR challenges you to keep customers happy by dishing up orders as fast as possible without making a mistake, with American, Mexican, Italian, and Japanese cuisines on offer. Featuring an 80 level single-player and a competitive PvP multiplayer, Flat Hills Games has squeezed a lot into this cooking title.
Reviewing the Oculus Quest edition of Clash of Chefs VR, VRFocus said the videogame: “has everything you could want from a VR cooking game, plenty of food, loads of modes and a nice wedge of lemon. The gameplay is fluid and once you get into a rhythm very satisfying to pump out order after order.”
Hand tracking updates have been few and far between of late, with few developers seemingly keen on utilising the technology. Unless you talk to the likes of Anotherway and Vertigo Games who released the entirely hand tracked air guitar title Unplugged last month. Let’s not forget that the new Lynx-R1 – which recently completed a successful Kickstarter – doesn’t come with controllers, hand tracking is the defacto control scheme.
Clash of Chefs VR is available for Oculus Quest and Steam VR headsets for $19.99 USD. For further hand tracking update additions, keep reading VRFocus.
