A new alternative to fight fires In the latest build of the game we’ve added a new, low-cost alternative to fight those pesky fires: the Sprinkler. It’s cheaper than the Firefighter Robotic Arm, but it gets all ingredients in the area wet, ruining them. Level objectives panel We’ve also added a handy panel on the right side of the screen to remind players the current level objectives. Also, if they click on the names of the dishes, they will immediately get the recipes book showing how to prepare them! Neat, isn’t it? New save/load window Now players have up to […]

Blueprints are here! We’ve added a crucial new feature to Automachef: now you can save a set of machines as a blueprint that you can then use again, in the same level or otherwise. This allows players to save lots of time when building their automated kitchen by reusing techniques they already know that work. Check out the video! Alerts system Another useful brand new feature in Automachef is a alerts system that lets you know when something bad is happening in your kitchen. Maybe you’re using lots of electricity, maybe there’s spoiled food about to be delivered, maybe a customer’s order […]

A brand new gameplay video If you haven’t seen it yet, go to Youtube now and check it out! We’re sure you’ll like it! Music and sound […]
