So way way back I was playing my PS1, and threw in the Playstation Magazine Demo. On it was a demo of an import game called Ore no Ryouri. It was an awesome cooking game that I couldn't get enough of.



So about six years ago I created a fan game based off of it called Ore no Ryomi, using Game Maker. Here's a screen of my game:



Most of it was done using old paint programs, so it's pretty ugly.

So anyways, "marioandluigi206" on my forums bought the Guinness Book of World Records the other day and found this:



There's a picture of my game, under Cookery. There's no credit to the pic or anything mentioning Ore no Ryomi, just the pic.

So ah, yeah. I'm officially in the Guinness Book of World Records! Woo! :lol

well that's pretty random. i guess it's nice to know that someone checked out your game though

but yeah there is a distinct lack of records on that page. it reminds me of those ads in video game magazines which try to pass themselves off as valid articles

congrats though i guess :p

Nice... grats dude! You figure they google image searched "cooking game" or some other similar phrase, and yours was the first result?

Wow, congratulations!

Just how easy is to find your game or at least pictures of it?

Wow. I used to play your game loads back when I was really into GameMaker. It was probably one of my favourites to tell the truth, up there with Jumper etc. Had no idea that you made it, like.

Cool stuff.

That page is seriously lacking in world records. I mean the old 1970s Book of Records that I have kicks the shit out off these new editions.
it went to shit around 1996 or so. Back then they were filled with interesting stuff, but now, it's completly lame.

Good deal, I might have a way yet to get you Ore no Ryouri.

I'm getting a HK 200 ticket and all I need is Catan, so I'll have some HKD to blow.

How hard is it for non-Japanese speakers to play Ore?
I imagine pretty hard. I have some spare HK cash and was thinking of trying it.
You can't play it without learning what the orders are, but the game itself is outstanding. so your call.

Congrats Chubigans. I wish I had a story like this to tell during a drinking party. Make sure to get the actual book at any cost. :D

Yeah, the book itself isn't very good, but I collect Guinness record books so I might as well add it to the collection. The actual records are in the back and since this is the second edition you can get a record in pretty much any game. Passed one level in Wario Ware? Congrats, you are a record breaker! The Guiness Book of Gaming Trivia would be a more appropriate title.

Guinness are not the best at selecting images. It was either in the '97 or '98 edition they mentioned Mario Kart 64, but chose a beta picture with Kamek in it. Confused the hell out of me when I was young thinking wither he was a secret unlockable or there was another Mario Kart game out there.

Oh, I'm rattling on. Congratulations.
