Main menu[edit]

From the main menu you can select the following:

  • New game: start a new game from the beginning. When you start the game, you will be prompted to choose a save slot (there are four available). The game will automatically save to the currently selected slot.
  • Load game: load a saved game from one of the four slots.
  • Quick play: pick up to four meals and get right into the kitchen! Use this option to get a quick taste of the gameplay in Order Up! Playing the main game will unlock additional meals which can then be played and perfected in this mode.
  • Options: adjust various settings or view other content from the game.
  • Audio: adjust volume levels for sound effects, speech, and music.
  • Credits: view the game's credits.
  • Bonus: view unlocked content.

New game[edit]

When you select a save slot to create a new game, you must choose which chef to play as:

Guy Chef

He's got no time to talk because he's here to cook, and cooking is what he does best! He doesn't even have time for a name, so everyone calls him Chef.

Gal chef

They say she's mumbling, but she's actually just too busy (planning her next dish no doubt) to form any actual words. Conveniently enough, she too is simply referred to as Chef. Isn't that something?

Instruction manual


Cooking meter

When an ingredient is being heated, an icon will appear which shows how hot the item is. The green area is "perfectly cooked" unless a customer likes their food under or over cooked. For ingredients with 2 sides (such as burgers or eggs) each side cooks independently and the item must be flipped when one side is perfectly cooked. For items which are stirred (such as pasta) the bottom arrow needs to be in the green for the item to be perfectly cooked, and stirring the ingredient will help regulate the temperature
