Game Story:

The game is about a cat named Reuben who grew up in Louisiana and owns a food truck. Sadly nobody seems to be buying from his food truck so in order to restore his food truck, he travels around the world. On these trips he learns about how food is important to different people and cultures and why it's important. He has a mentor teach him how to make the national dish and the mentor teaches him about their culture. After he has collected 6 recipes he is able to return to his food truck.


Sophie finds other cultures and their food especially interesting. She thinks that many places and cultures are really similar, but not many people know that because they can't find connections. Sophie’s game aims to educate people on other cultures in a kid friendly way.
