An exhibition about video game food culture has opened at Finnish Museum of Games.
UnReal World is featured in the exhibition in many ways ...
... and the most delicious parts are now served to you within a special downloadable content which is now available also in english.

The Cake is a Lie exhibition is on display 24.1.2021 – 31.8.2021 at Finnish Museum of Games, Tampere, Finland. Even though visiting the physical exhibition is not a possibility for most of us everyone can still get a good taste of it with downloadable publication they have made available.


Deep and delicious downloadable content

From Screen to Plate is an expansion, or DLC to the exhibition. This downloadable .pdf publication explores the writing of videogame food blogs and books, glances at cooking simulators, and marvels at UnReal World’s Iron Age eating habits through an interview and an entire menu to try out.

UnReal World menu is based on the actual dishes you can cook in the game, but now with the recipes and instructions printed out you can try cooking them for real. In the interview Sami talks about the food and its meaning in the game, also covering historical viewpoints and folklore behind the game mechanics.
What kinds of rituals were involved in eating during Iron-Age? Which UnReal World foods the dev himself would like to try out? Would players find the game’s food tasty?

You can download the publication from the links below. There's English and Finnish edition available.

"The Cake is a Lie - from Screen to Plate DLC" (in English)
"Kakku on vale - ruudulta lautaselle"-julkaisu" (in Finnish)


The publication is also available as printed A5 booklet for those who have an opportunity to go see the physical exhibition.

Cheers! Keep on roasting in the free world...
