Description

Salad Hunt is inspired by classic arcade shooters and compresses them into a mobile form that is accessible to the next generation of gamers. Players take the role of The Chef and find that their kitchen has been invaded by salad ingredients that have come alive as cute, but mischievous characters. Lacking conventional weapons to defend himself, The Chef tosses forks, bowls, and lettuce at them in the hope of saving what remains of his kitchen, but ironically destroys it even further in the process. Salad Hunt captures these moments of mayhem without the use of realistic violence.

History

Salad Hunters Inc. was founded in 2015 by brothers Telly Lee and Sunny Lee, life long gamers since the NES and Apple II. Salad Hunters is focused on re-imagining classic gaming experiences they fell in love with for future generations of gamers. No animals or kitchens were hurt during the making of this game… but lots of salad was eaten.
