Puppy Chef Academy is a Virtual Reality cooking experience designed to help you learn how to cook without the stress and mess of a real kitchen. You play as Yuu, the first cat to be accepted into the all-dog Puppy Chef Academy, a culinary school where aspiring candidates enter as students and leave as culinary masters. Get ready to don your apron and chef hat: With the help of the teachers you meet and friends you make, you’ll be on your way to achieving your dreams of becoming a master chef!

  • Over the course of the game, you'll chop, bake, and sizzle your way through twelve recipes from all over the world! From America to Italy to Japan, you’ll learn how to cook real-life meals for your friends and family that not only look great, but taste great too!
  • Can't cook? No problem. Just relax, and enjoy making recipes without fear of messing up!
  • Simple and intuitive controls anyone can pick up and play!
  • As the only cat in an all-dog school, you'll have to learn to fit in and prove yourself among your peers. Along the way, you'll also make unlikely friendships, help others, and realize your own potential as a chef in the esteemed Puppy Chef Academy!
  • A play space of at least 2 meters by 2 meters is recommended, but is playable with a standing / sitting setup as well.

    A final note about Puppy Chef Academy from the developer:

    It is truly amazing to see how much this project has changed in just a few years since that very first scribble on the back of my college notebook. The game has gone through so many changes; some good, some less than great, but in the end it turned into what is ultimately my longest and greatest achievement of my game development career so far. Writing and developing twelve episodes connected by an overarching story spanning nearly two hours is certainly an accomplishment! When I think of the game, I think of all the great memories I had during its development, and the stories shared with the people involved with it. Thank you to everyone who cheered me on, who picked me up when I was down, and believed that I could do it, and helped me persevere through some of the lowest lows of my life in order to bring at least some happiness to the world by finishing this game. Words can not fully describe how thankful I am for everyone involved with this project, but for now, all I can manage is just a simple and sincere: "Thank you."

    Sadly, it's time to close this chapter of my career, and move on to other things. As much as I wish I could have continued this game's story past the end, I just can not continue the game's development. As a way of saying thank you to everyone, the game is now free on itch.io. Permanently. Just play it, and enjoy it for what it is. I discovered that I'd rather have a hundred people play my game and never see a dime from it than have a hundred bucks and have so few people have a chance to play it and share their experience with others.

    If you enjoyed the game and would like to pay for it in some way, all I ask is that you consider purchasing the game either on Oculus Home, or preferably, by donating how much you felt the experience was worth by way of itch.io's donation system. Use whichever one is the most convenient for you!

    Thanks again to everyone for your support. I hope to see at least some of you when I begin my next project!

    this was so cewt ahhhh. cooking and puppygirls and vr is best combo.

    This game, although rather short and definitely could use some quality of life improvements, is very fun. The story is sweet and surprisingly pretty emotional. Would recommend!

    Thank you very much for playing! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the experience. :)
