“Cook, Serve, Delicious!”, The First Hardcore Cooking Sim, Now Available for Mac!

ODESSA, Texas (November 1, 2012) - Vertigo Gaming is proud to announce that “Cook, Serve, Delicious!” is now available for Mac via Gamersgate, Desura and www.vertigogaming.net, with a Mac App Store version coming later this year.

“Cook, Serve, Delicious!” is a hardcore restaurant sim, one of the few in its genre that gives players total control over where they want to take their restaurant’s future. You’ll start with a few thousand dollars and 20 foods to choose from for your menu, as well as a host of restaurant equipment and a virtual email account that connects you to the people of SherriSoda Tower. Nearly everything is unlocked from the start of the game for you to purchase; this is your restaurant, and you must figure out the best strategy to get your business packed with satisfied customers. Can you prove your culinary skills?

“There’s an odd appeal to this game,” said Ryan Davis of Giantbomb.com during a Quick Look of “Cook, Serve, Delicious!” with Jeff Gerstmann. “The Rush Hours are intense and totally engaging.”

“This seems like a cool game,” said Jeff Gerstmann, “I want a corndog.”

With a 4.5/5 review from Gamezebo, noting its “deep sense of strategy and advancement,” you can bet that “Cook, Serve, Delicious!” is one experience you’ve never quite played before.

Key features include: 

  • Obtain new stars and remodels for your restaurant as you complete goals on your way to the five-star restaurant class.
  • Participate in extra challenges including catering for office parties, being on the Iron Cook television show and joining a mysterious tournament.
  • Log into your virtual SherriSoda Tower email account where you can read the latest from SherriSoda employees, make bets with Crazy Dave, go on dates via the “Cook4Luv” relationship service, fund projects via “clicknstart” and obtain rare items for your restaurant, book VIP reservations, monitor the weather for the next day, and lots more.
  • Buy new equipment upgrades for your restaurant, as well as buy and upgrade 20 different foods for your menu. Switch out foods from your menu as they become stale, create daily lunch specials and monitor your buzz with a detailed stats screen.
