The crafting mini-game is a fun concept for a crafting system, but it needs a little work. The delay between command que to stop the slider and when it actually stops is a bit large. Timing mechanics like this should ideally have the action happen quickly when the command is queued. Otherwise the crafting system will harder than it needs to be. So, just a little tweaking and it's good to go.
I accidentally ate the ingredients that are needed to complete the quest.. there seems to be no way to obtain those items back again and can't leave the area until I cook the pie.. so now it seems I have to restart with a new character.
