First of all, thanks to everyone who has been playing the game this week. It's been great to see all your feedback, so thanks especially to everyone who has sent me a message with your experience.
I've been busy rolling out the test this week. Soon, everyone who requested to join should be invited! I've also been working on fixing the bugs that people have reported and tweaking things in response to suggestions.
So, hopefully things like this will happen less often:
I'll be pushing out a playtest update later today with a few tweaks:
Thanks again to everyone who reported these! I'm also looking into some reports that Steam doesn't detect when the game closes properly, and some people have said some of the recipes are confusing. Until I figure out a nice way to show it in the game, here's a picture showing the steps for making carrot soup:
Some people have also mentioned that the game is currently quite difficult played solo. I really want the game to work well both in co-op and solo, so I'm planning on working on some restaurant variants that should be easier to handle alone. Look out for a takeaway option that should let you focus on the kitchen side of things when you don't have someone to play as a waiter for you!
