Survival cooking games

Cook and eat to stay alive

Take on challenging games where hunger can’t be ignored, and missing a meal could be the difference between exploring and expiring.


Brave this sandbox classic’s testing survival mode where crafting weapons and armour to protect yourself from dangerous mobs is just one part of staying alive. You must also watch your hunger points – if they drop to zero, your health will start to fall.

  • Gather food from the land around you, like apples, potatoes and mushrooms, and either eat them raw (when possible) or combine with other ingredients for nourishing meals.
  • Every foodstuff you find or cook has its own nourishment value – so knowing your steak from your spider eyes matters to your hunger points.
  • Use furnaces, smokers and campfires to cook raw meat and vegetables, adding to their nourishment value and providing you with stats-boosting snacks.

ARK: Survival Ascended

Awake on a mysterious island in this reimagined take on a survival classic, developed in Unreal Engine 5 to take full advantage of the PlayStation 5. Form a tribe, tame and breed dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, and do whatever you can to stop that stomach from rumbling.

  • Whether you’re using a basic campfire, cooking pot or an industrial grill or cooker, it’s important to work with fresh ingredients – so never let your meat or fish spoil.
  • Raw meat is okay to eat in a pinch – but it won't make you strong enough to build huts, craft weapons and hunt deadly beasts.
  • Adding and mixing ingredients such as vegetables and spices can produce meals like soups, curries and chowders, all of which have their own stat boosts.

Living another life in this world comes with many challenges – and keeping a healthy supply of meals is just one of them.

  • Meals don’t only restore your health – they can often provide other benefits, such as status perks and stat boosts. Ingredients vary but a stock of raw meat and salt will get you started.
  • Finding, buying (or stealing!) a means to cook is important. If you have your own home in Skyrim you can install a kitchen area, meaning you’ll always have a space to create your favourites.
  • Cooking can also be used for nefarious means – creating poisoned apples means you can assassinate targets without spilling a drop of blood or attracting unwanted attention.
