Vertigo Gaming unleashed a reveal trailer on the game’s new website (actually themed like a restaurant’s, very nice touch), which served up some artsy visuals of some of the foods you’ll surely be cooking once the game is released.
The website also revealed the sequel’s story, which has a bit more financial intrigue than you might expect:
“It was seemingly like any other morning at SherriSoda Tower as you take the elevator up to open Cook, Serve, Delicious!, a platinum star restaurant that was surging in popularity thanks to your amazing chef and management skills. Just then, a swarm of police surround SherriSoda Tower. It seems the SherriSoda head executives were secretly stealing funds from the company at the same time they were incurring a staggering amount of debt, draining the accounts of the tower and several of the businesses inside of it, including CSD.
Just like that, the tower was closed and put up for federal auction, including everything inside of it. It was all over…the Cook, Serve, Delicious! restaurant was no more.”
Well! Back to square one in style.
The original Cook, Serve, Delicious! was a fast-paced cooking game where players choose they food they want on their menu, then tackle a great number of customer orders whilst dealing with the plagues of running a restaurant (trash removal, dishwashing, etc) all through well-timed keystrokes. I had a great time with it, especially with in the co-op mode, where you and your friends are calling out orders to one another Gordon Ramsey style.
Here’s hoping the second serving’s as great as the first – take a look at the Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! reveal trailer above.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2 is coming to PS4 and Steam in 2016.
