You're actually the second person to say this! None of us thought of that while making it but we love the comparion :)

Apparently our artist was thinking about it the whole time :O


Sorry I didn't realize you linked that video! That's awesome thanks so much!

at first I was like, why's it called nasty kitchen? this is so cute! then i played for 30 more seconds and went, "Ah." i like the combo gameplay, the only part i got annoyed by was the cockroach mini game. best i could get was pecans.


Thanks for the review! Yeaaa because of the times constraints there are definitely some places with a bit of a difficulty spike 😅
