Cooking is a fundamental part of the Immortal Life gameplay, and this game brings new life to the classic farming game mechanic. Collect the recipes, master the mini-game, and use the fruits of your labor to conquer monsters.

Cooking is a complex process in Immortal Life, almost as complex as real-life cooking, but in this instance, I’m really excited to spend hours in the kitchen instead of the very real kitchen ten feet away. Players will have to craft special ingredients to combine with their crops to create simple and complex dishes. This guide will be able to help with everything players will need to become a culinary expert.

Immortal Life Cooking Mini Game

The cooking mechanic in Immortal Life has evolved from a quick tap of a button to a full-blown mini-game that is as fun as it is ruthless. Players will be able to use full-size kitchens to chop, fry, mix, knead, steam, and boil food to create dishes one step at a time. They can either make their own dishes to keep or work in the kitchen at the Sunset Inn for money.

The mini-game is a timed event where the longer a player takes to make the dish or set of dishes, the lower the quality of dish they create. It is on a three-star scale with the Normal, Excellent, and Perfect tiers. It is not a forgiving mini-game. If the player makes one mistake in the cooking process, they have to throw it out and start over.

Cooking Locations in Immortal Life

Players will be able to use the Sunset Inn’s kitchen after talking with Mu Xia. They will rent the kitchen for 200 Spirit Shards and will be able to use it throughout the day when they want. As the Guiyun Sect grows, players will be able to unlock the sect’s kitchen.
