OverviewOverview

Venba is a narrative-cooking game about an Indian mother who immigrated to Canada in the 1980s. You cook various traditional Indian dishes and restore the lost recipes which were damaged in the move to Canada. As you talk to your mother's family you learn about her life through branching conversations and explore challenges that she faced in her day-to-day life.

Along with the narrative and conversations, Venba offers cooking puzzles where you repair the recipes, fill in the missing ingredients and instructions, and then put together the dishes by clicking and dragging the utensils and ingredients and preparing the meal. Each day brings a new recipe and you cook a variety of Southern Indian dishes that tie in with the narrative.

This game explores cooking traditional Indian cuisine and the stories behind the mother's recipes that create a world of family, love, and loss.
