Channel 4 has produced the educational title, and the game was developed by studio Playerthree. It will be released simultaneously on iPhone, iPad, as a Minis game on PlayStation Network and via your browser (see the link above).
Designed for 14-19 year olds, players stuff a character Chef full of food and see what effects they have on his physical shape. Different combinations provide different side effects, including: Rage mode, Power Punch, Fart Jet, and Turbo Run. Sounds delightful.
David Streek, creative director over at Playerthree said: "Nom Nation encourages gamers to consume different food and drink in the form of Noms and discover the benefits and dangers of each. Some trigger power ups and side effects, some make you fat and some damage your heart but all help illustrate how the right foods, or lack of them, affect the body and its functions."
"Understanding nutrition helps the player complete the game with the educational ‘take-out' being that a balance of foods is the best path to success in your quest and of course in real life."
