Venba on Xbox and Game Pass is a cooking delight

Emigrating to a far-flung country, whoever you are, is always going to be a challenging and stressful experience. New cultures to understand, friendships to culture, and dishes to cook! Venba on Xbox, Game Pass, PlayStation, Switch and PC from Visai Games, particularly focuses on the latter of these three.

Forgotten Recipes

Releasing today on Xbox, Game Pass, PlayStation, Switch and PC, Venba tells the tale of an Indian mother who takes her family all the way to Canada in the 1980s. In transit, Venba’s beloved recipe book is damaged, and many of her recipes collated over the years are lost to time. 

And if you don’t want to splash the cash, it’s all playable through Game Pass too.

The core gameplay loop of Venba will see you cook up these forgotten dishes. Expect to be working through some Cooking Mama-style minigames and puzzle solving. Gradually, the South Indian recipe book will be built up once again, seeing the flavours of biriyanis and dosas litter the book. A much calmer cooking title is just what we need, after spending hours stressed during Overcooked!

Reconnection

As you cook these dishes, the lo-fi Tamil music played from the kitchen radio will occasionally be replaced by a conversation with one of your family members.

This is not just a cooking game. Ultimately the food is simply a gateway to reconnecting to your family members, as you hold a number of conversations with them.

Key Features

  • Cook Authentic And Delicious Recipes Handpicked From Regional Southern Indian Cuisine
  • Hold Branching Conversations And Choose Different Narrative Beats To Explore
  • Beautiful Visuals And Animations
  • Unique Soundtrack Inspired By Indian Musicals

Abhi, Game Designer at Visai Studios, spoke. “Venba started as a small side project that was compelling to make as I felt it had an untold story to share.  Over the last 3 years however, the response to Venba has been overwhelming. It has allowed us to transition from working weeknights and weekends to starting a studio full-time. Venba is a celebration of food, family,  Tamil cuisine, music and culture and we can’t wait to share it with all of you!”

Get Cooking!

Venba is now available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch and PC. This is a short 1-2 hour experience, so is perfect for a way to break up your day. You can pick up a copy for yourself on Xbox via the Xbox Store – it’ll cost £12.49. Alternatively, grab a Game Pass download.

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
