I’m happy to announce that the Extra Crispy Edition of Cook, Serve, Delicious is now available for PC, Mac and Linux! (Android and iPad users should already have the extra content in their game!)
Cook, Serve, Delicious! Extra Crispy Edition adds ten new foods to the menu, including an all new breakfast menu, exotic menu and rich dish menu for your customers. It also greatly improves the performance and music of the Mac version. This is the new standard version that replaces the 1.x version of Cook, Serve, Delicious! and is available as a free patch for current PC/Mac owners. You can find lots more info here.
I’m also happy to release the very first Linux edition of the game! It is available to demo and buy via the site and coming soon to the Ubuntu App Store.
For those who have already purchased the game, you can download the updated installer and simply re-install over the old game. Your save files will remain intact. Here’s how to do it:
Purchased here (BMT Micro): You can redownload the installers using your original download links and purchase information. Be warned however that if you download it to a computer that was not the original one that bought the game, the links wont work. Simply contact me and I’ll reset those links for you as soon as possible, or resend your download information!
If you bought the Combo of Awesome, you can redownload that package to get the new installer, or contact me for a separate installer so you don’t have to download 247mb again.
