Playing with Your Food Has Been Turned Into a Video Game

There’s at least one way that babies and toddlers have fun that us grown-ups can’t achieve. Well, it’s not that we can’t do it; it’s more that we choose not to because we don’t want to deal with the consequences. Our clothes will be filthy, our skin and hair will get sticky, and the dining room will be absolutely gross. Yes, we’re talking, of course, about the time-honored art of playing with your food. It’s a ton of fun, but is it worth it?

These are questions we don’t need to ask ourselves thanks to a new game called Nour, which is currently in the middle of a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter ( via Kotaku).

This is a food game, but unlike most food-focused titles, it’s not a cooking game, but rather, “an interactive exploration of the aesthetics of food,” as creator Tj Hughes writes on Kickstarter. He goes on to explain that the game is an open sandbox, in which you explore how different food items will react to being jostled around:

“The game doesn’t limit your play with goals or objectives; you’re free to have open-ended fun while you play with your food, without the mess to clean up afterwards. You are presented with scenes full of ramen noodles, boba tea, popcorn, and you mash buttons at will to interact with the food in curious and unconventional ways.”

The Kickstarter campaign has eight days remaining, so check it out here, and let us know in the comments below if you’re ready to dig your claws into a big ol’ bowl of ramen.
