If you like Overcooked but think it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi, and that je ne sais quoi just so happens to be people, then Cannibal Cuisine is the game for you, now available on PlayStation and Xbox. Lots of indie games feature cooking in a cute and cosy capacity, and while the aesthetic of Cannibal Cuisine is certainly fun, eating people is a serious criminal offence, so don't try any of the recipes you learn at home.

Whereas Overcooked features multiplayer cooking chaos in varied levels like moving trucks and a kitchen in the midst of an earthquake, Cannibal Cuisine's levels take place on an island. You'll be jumping over traps, lava, and more as you chase unwilling tourists and try to turn them into an offering for your tribe's deity.

The game is already available on Nintendo Switch and PC, but the move to PlayStation and Xbox comes alongside a free expansion: The Curse of the Scarab King. This DLC will add five new levels with mummies and Ancient Egyptian-inspired visuals.

Part of the original press release has been criticised on Twitter due to the inclusion of the word voodoo alongside the negative trope of native tribal islanders eating helpless tourists. Many films and video games have historically taken inspiration from Haitian Vodou religious practises and used them to create a racist caricature of Black religion and spiritualism. The press release has since been updated to replace the term "voodoo powers", with "special powers".

The PlayStation and Xbox versions of Cannibal Cuisine, as well as the free Curse of the Scarab King expansion, will launch on January 25. The game includes online and couch co-op for one to four players - too many cooks spoils the broth, so what do four cooks do to spleen soup?

If you're hungry for humans and organs, then Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator is worth checking out. It's free on GamePass, and some of TheGamer's staff have been enjoying the game in numerous ways. News editor Issy van der Velde played as a coked up Wall Street Trader, while features editor Ben Sledge opted for a philanthropic route. Both ended in disaster.
