“Cook, Serve, Delicious! Extra Crispy Edition” Available Now - the First Hardcore Cooking Sim Gets a Massive Expansion Pack!

ODESSA, Texas (May 7, 2013) - Vertigo Gaming is proud to announce “Cook, Serve, Delicious! Extra Crispy Edition” is now available as a brand new release for PC, Mac and Linux via www.vertigogaming.net, and is also available as a free patch for current owners of the game.

“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.

“Cook, Serve, Delicious! Extra Crispy Edition” tackles ten new foods for aspiring chefs to place on their menu, with a selection of both exotic and fan requested dishes ready to be sliced and diced. This all new round of culinary chaos requires even the most seasoned chef to refine their cooking methods as some foods demand the upmost perfection…or your customers will go home hungry and defeated.

With rave reviews from Touch Arcade (4.5/5- “a culinary tablet masterpiece”), JayIsGames.com (“[it will] captivate you for weeks on end”) and nominated for “Best Downloadable Game” for Giantbomb.com’s Downloadable Game of the Year 2012 award, “Cook, Serve, Delicious! Extra Crispy Edition” will be a tasty dish for anyone ready for a challenge!
