You should see this one cook. I'm serious. This shot may depict her mastering fire, water, and air. But she's equally adept with sugar, fat, and salt.
I tried convincing the art director that we should instead depict her in her more natural setting. In a lavish kitchen, wearing just an apron and a comically oversized chef's hat, with chocolate and cream, caramel and cupcakes orbiting her while she tastes a floating strawberry.
I was told that "it's hard to come up with game mechanics for that."
But perhaps, time permitting, we'll see that more truthful version of her yet.
