Cook, Serve, Delicious! is like a drug for me. I bought it in 2013 and played over and over for many hours. I found it on Humble Store while it was on sale and I could not resist.
It’s addictive gameplay (and my passion for food) made it one of the games I played the most on Steam. I played it for days and days, memorizing every recipe pattern and challenging myself by putting the hardest recipes on my menu. I actually broke one of my previous keyboards because of Cook, Serve, Delicious!
Unfortunately, its sequel wasn’t as good as the first entry in the series. I mean, there were many improvements in both gameplay and artistic direction, but the missing Story Mode was a big flaw. The Story Mode in Cook, Serve, Delicious! was meant to make the player unlock more features with a good pacing. The sequel has everything already unlocked, and you just need to farm some money to buy the recipes you prefer.
