Abducted, dazed, and slightly confused, prepare for your unexpected enrollment into the Startenders Academy. Your goal, apparently, is to create bizarre beverages for colourful customers in the hope that no one notices you haven’t the slightest clue what’s going on.
Let loose with a cocktail shaker, a collection of mad machinery, and an abundance of crazy ingredients to mix, shake and serve your way across the universe.

Overall rating

By far the best cooking game on Quest! Actually one of the top cooking games in VR overall. Very impressed with this one. ***** At the time of this review, I had completed the campaign and unlocked all the bar ingredients and upgrades. *****
The good
  • Huge variety of ingredients
  • Complicated recipes
  • Unique ingredients some with entertaining effects.
  • Add difficulty at your own pace by purchasing new ingredients when you are ready
  • Unique crafting upgrade system. Actually build upgrades to your machines
  • Cute entertaining story.
  • Fun and animated world to play around in outside of the bar.
The bad
  • Items that go on the rim of glasses are sometimes difficult to grab or are accidently grabbed when picking up the glass.
  • Some of the mid level machine upgrades feel like downgrades to me. There is no option to switch back once upgraded.
