New company in the catalog: Trinket Studios for Battle Chef Brigade (release upcoming Monday):
Battle Chef Brigade features fantasy chefs, including Orcs, Elves, and Humans, who need to hunt dangerous monsters for ingredients. With those ingredients, before the critical eye of the judges, the chefs create culinary masterpieces in an intense tournament. Battle Chef Brigade pairs one part combo-based action hunting and one part puzzle-based cooking, all as the round clock ticks down.
History

Battle Chef Brigade is the type of game that we quit out jobs to make, even if we didn't know it at the time. The game's genesis was in the communal lunch breaks we'd take while pitching game ideas for Trinket's third title. These meals would often take place around the TV, which without fail was always tuned to a cooking show of some kind. At some point we realized that a game about cooking that did justice to the creative fire of talented chefs was way better than any of the ideas we'd yet had. From there we spent a lot of time prototyping Battle Chef Brigade's cooking. We wanted to create a mechanic that wasn't just rote recipes and steps, but we weren't really sure what that meant. Though it took far longer than we expected, each prototype was invaluable for nailing down which aspects of cooking could be nicely abstracted into clear, fun mechanics and which were too clunky. On the programming side, we've been able to keep building on our years of industry experience. Integrating new characters, foods, and chef challenges will be a straightforward process since we've been preparing for them all along. We invested a good chunk of our time building a robust combat system that integrates into our animation tools. Our biggest remaining tasks are related to our illustrated, hand-animated art style. There are very few shortcuts to creating hand-drawn animations and environments. Our tools help smooth out the process, but each chef and monster still requires a lot of Photoshop time!
Features

Hand drawn 2D animated characters and monsters.
Three playable chefs with their own short campaign which delves into each character's personality and cooking.
A chef's pairing of equal parts old-school brawler, match-three puzzler, served with a side of light RPG progression.
Daily challenge leaderboards where Battle Chefs can boast about their day's best culinary creations.
Deadly and delicious monsters. Subdue them in the arena!

Thanks for posting this. I follow the developers' twitter and there was no mention it would ever be coming here, I'm happy to know it will. Hope the game is good. :)
While Shadowhand was on the list for a while, now it's got an official release date: December 7. Looking forward to it. :)
New company combination in the catalog: Pieces Interactive, THQ Nordic. Pieces Interactive got acquired by Nordic 3 months ago.. No idea if it's about the unnamed game in development or one of the already published ones.
