Overcooked! All You Can Eat Free Birthday Party Update Now Available

The Overcooked! franchise has just reached its fifth anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, Ghost Town Games has released a free birthday party update for Overcooked! All you can eat. The update adds new levels, a chef and a brand new recipe, now available for free to all players.

The five new kitchens are all birthday themed and come with a new Switcheroo mechanic where a walking playing card will teleport players to a new part of the kitchen through a portal on the floor. There’s also a new Tabby Cat chef, a new recipe for making a cup of tea, and rather party hats for everyone. However, it seems that the Onion King is not very willing to share his birthday cake with anyone other than Kevin.

Ghost Town Games’ co-founder Phil Duncan said:

Five years later, still the most rewarding aspect of working on Overcooked! get to see and hear the reaction of players around the world. Seeing the fan art, the music covers, the cosplay and even the occasional tattoo is something I will never get used to. Hearing stories of players bonding with friends and loved ones during their time playing the game together is something we humbly played a part in.

As part of the celebrations, players are encouraged to bring their Overcooked! stories, screenshots, live streams, gameplay clips and art on the game’s various social media by adding the hashtag #OvercookedBirthday. There are also discounts on Overcooked! All you can eat on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4; the game includes all content from the first two games, online multiplayer for the levels from the first title, new chefs, new levels, new outfits for the existing chefs, and more accessibility options. The rest of the franchise will be reduced to 80% on PlayStation 4 as well.
