Overcooked Almost Lost Its “E For Everyone” Rating Because Of A Crude Gag

Overcooked is a cute local co-op game making its way onto the Switch sometime during 2017. However, the ESRB had an issue with a crude joke featured on the game’s logo and Overcooked almost lost its “E For Everyone” rating. Pointing to a chef’s bare bum on Overcooked’s marketing materials, the developers were told the game would be re-rated as an E10+ release. Desperate to keep the game’s mass appeal, the cheeks were quickly removed. The developers discussed the change in an interview with Eurogamer.

“We had to frantically paint over the little bum. Update the logo everywhere we could think of and re-edit the trailer from the hotel in the middle of the night. The t-shirts we had printed for conventions are the only things remaining which still display the illicit cleft.”
