AFK Cookset

Groups

The AFK cookset is designed for the hungry role-playing gamer who can connect her food items, e.g., Spicy Wolf Dumplings, to her online cooking habits. By scanning in the food items, the video game physically adjusts a hot plate to cook the item for the correct amount of time. The virtual character then jubilantly announces the status of the meal to both the gamer and the other individuals playing online: �O la la my roasted raptor is about to be done!� When the food is ready, the system automatically puts the character in AFK (�Away From Keyboard�) mode to provide the gamer with a moment to eat. When the player resumes playing, he or she might just discover his or her character�s behavior is affected by the food consumed in real life�sluggish from overeating or alternately exuberant and energetic.
