Welcome to Puppy Chef Academy!

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. The game blends the simple controls of Job Simulator with the innovative gameplay of Cooking Mama, with a splash of visual novel storytelling. Throughout your adventure you’ll cook tasty recipes, learn about cooking, and even make some friends along the way!

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!



Intuitive Controls!

Are you clumsy? Have you tried to boil water and burned it? No problem! If you can pick up a pan, you can cook in Puppy Chef Academy! Every interaction in Puppy Chef Academy is designed to reflect real-world cooking techniques while being as simple as possible for anyone to pick up and play!

A diverse set of recipes!

Recipes in Puppy Chef Academy have cultural influences from all over the world; from America to Italy to Japan, you’ll learn how to cook meals that not only look great, but taste great too!

Continuous support!

So long as the game has funding through the donations of supporters on Patreon, Puppy Chef Academy will continue to add more recipes, stories, and characters to meet.
Best of all, all future recipes will be added to the base game for free--you won’t have to pay a dime for future content!
