Trinket Studios has officially put Battle Chef Brigade up on Kickstarter for funding. This wonderful little game is set to task players with hunting monsters in 2D combat, picking up their meat and using all the goodies found to impress judges in cooking contests.

Yep, it had our attention when we first got word of it earlier this year. We actually interviewed Tom Eastman at Trinket Studios about Battle Chef Brigade, and you can check out that massive feature in full right here.

Trinket Studios is seeking $38,000 to push Battle Chef Brigade to completion. The game will release on the PC, Mac and Linux platforms, and it will be available through Steam and the Humble Store.

$15 in backing will get you a DRM-free copy of the game on the platform of your choice. The higher tiers bring in beta access, in-game content, physical merchandise and even becoming a celebrity judge in the actual game itself. That one cracks me up.

Battle Chef Brigade isn’t slated to drop until 2016, so backing this effort would be playing the long game. Still, if you like offbeat titles with gorgeous assets and a penchant for the crazy world of cooking, I suggest you give this one some consideration.
