Press release:
27th May 2022
Solo developer It’s Happening and publisher Yogscast Games have today announced a partnership to bring unique restaurant management roguelite game “PlateUp!” to PC (via Steam) this Summer.

PlateUp! combines chaotic kitchen and restaurant management with strategic planning and development to serve up a delightful roguelite dish unlike any other. Up to four players build and run a restaurant from scratch, choosing dishes, buying and placing appliances – some of which can be daisy-chained together to create ambitious automatic kitchens – cooking food and serving customers. Players have free rein to design their restaurant which will expand and develop between shifts, with additional content and challenges unlocked through progression.

PlateUp!’s compelling roguelite structure ensures it’s equally fun in both single and co-op modes (locally or online) and, thanks to its randomised nature, no two runs will ever be the same. It has been a huge hit on both Twitch and YouTube, with many hundreds of thousands of hours of streams watched already – and this popularity looks set to skyrocket when it launches with deep Twitch integration, allowing live-streamers to welcome viewers into their restaurants. Additionally, those in Chat will be able to vote for in-game events, helping or hindering the players on stream – with lots more streaming integration planned.

The game has gathered a huge online community on Discord, with public playtests already proving enormously popular. The full release will build upon the promise shown so far and completely redefine cooking games, combining restaurant empire building alongside chaotic cooking and serving gameplay – delicious!

The publishing agreement will enable It’s Happening to expand on the game’s content, with Yogscast providing art, marketing and publishing support through launch and beyond.

“I’ve seen first-hand the impact that content creators make to the visibility of PlateUp!,” says Alastair Janse van Rensburg, It’s Happening,

“so I am overjoyed to be working with Yogscast Games and the Yogscast network to bring PlateUp! through to launch. The game has been a true labour of love since I started it last year and being able to lean on their publishing and broadcasting expertise is a genuine thrill. I can’t wait to get the game into players’ hands this Summer.”

“Alastair is creating an extraordinary game,” adds Simon Byron, Director of Publishing, Yogscast Games.

“It brings fresh innovation to the cooking game genre, offering a chaotic cooking and serving experience alongside roguelike and empire building elements.

It’s as fun to watch as it is to play and therefore fits perfectly within the Yogscast Games portfolio. It’s already one of the top 1,000 most Wishlisted games on Steam – and I can’t wait to throw the full weight of our publishing and marketing expertise behind it in order to propel it to even greater success.”
