Burgers are one of the simplest foods to make, which is perhaps why they are so well-loved: Everyone can make them, so everyone can enjoy them. Everyone, including vaguely squarish monsters.
Monster Want Burger, the new mobile game from the developers at Cipher Prime, reduces burger-making to simply flinging ingredients together onto the plate. On the player’s side of the table, each ingredient sits on its own plate, rendered in a blocky, 3D art style. In the middle sits the plate where players assemble their creations, and across from that sits the aforementioned monster. It sits, lone eye watching the plate carefully, and then, when the burger is fully constructed, its mouth rises above the table before inhaling the burgers, like a kind of brightly colored Charybdis.
Cipher Prime also touts the game’s “Burger Naming Algorithm,” which supposedly gives each burger a unique name. How this algorithm works – whether it’s based on the ingredients or just picks a bunch of burger-related words at random – isn’t clear. One example given was called the “Seattle Crispy Sirloin Hog.”
Monster Want Burger is out now on mobile for iOS, as well as Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs. The PC versions are available at whatever price you’d like (though the site suggests $2.00 USD). Those interested can purchase the game, as well as learn more about it, through its website. Alternatively, additional details about Cipher Prime are available from their website.
