The Digital Research Team at The University of Nottingham have created a new virtual reality (VR) experience where players will run a commercial kitchen, balancing the task of cooking meals as requests come in with adhering to health and safety and hygiene rules.
Built to run on an HTC Vive VR headset, The Corrupt Kitchen VR is a game where players must balance the task of cooking meals as requests come in with adhering to health and safety rules: keeping themselves and the kitchen clean and free of infestation; ensuring the quality of their ingredients; and ensuring that their employees have all the correct paperwork.
The more meals they produce, the more money the restaurant makes and the higher their score. Neglecting the other tasks will certainly make them more money, but there’s an associated risk. A second player; acting as a health inspector will assess their work. If it’s found lacking, there may be fines to pay.
