SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/11/09 -- PlayFirst, Inc., the award-winning entertainment company, is behind today's launch of a new casual game title based on the top selling Cooking Dash® series. Cooking Dash®: DinerTown Studios(TM), is the glitzy sequel title which introduces an exciting Hollywood theme to the series. PlayFirst PlayPass(TM) members will have exclusive access to the game for both Mac and PC download from today Tuesday, August 11 and the title will be widely available on Thursday, August 13.
First released in 2008 for the PC and Mac, Cooking Dash is still one of PlayFirst's top selling time management PC and Mac games with 14 million downloads to date. The original Cooking Dash traces the story of Flo, the restaurateur who is forced to run several restaurant kitchens in DinerTown in a race against time.
In the star studded sequel, Cooking Dash: DinerTown Studios, Flo finds herself working on a TV set and striving to keep the talent and crew happy by serving timely and delicious dishes. The game presents the additional challenge of requiring increased preparation and strategic foresight to keep up with the demanding customers as a celebrity cast complete with challenging egos keeps gamers on their toes.
The game also introduces several new features including multi-course meals and five new on-set restaurants all within 50 TV-themed gameplay levels. Inspired by the world of on screen entertainment, Cooking Dash: DinerTown Studios explores the successful genres that made Hollywood famous and reflects these themes in the game's restaurant locations. New locations paying homage to the industry include The Salt Lick Saloon, Buckingham Bistro and The Crater Café.
"The PlayFirst fans have spoken loud and clear in their demand for more Cooking Dash games and we are thrilled to 'level up' their culinary entertainment," said Kenny Shea Dinkin, vice president and creative director, PlayFirst. "Today's launch finds Flo in the glamorous world of Hollywood where players will need to tackle a menu full of new gameplay challenges before securing their starring role in this fast paced, fast food kitchen comedy."
