Overcooked! Birthday Party
Ghost Town Games

Team17 and Ghost Town Games release a free Birthday Party update for Overcooked! All You Can Eat.

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Overcooked!, publisher Team17 and developer Ghost Town Games have released a free content update for Overcooked! All You Can Eat on all platforms.

The update includes five birthday-themed levels, a new Tabby Cat chef, and a recipe for a cup of tea. The new in-game Switcheroo mechanic also adds to the chaos by zapping players across the kitchen in an instant.

Speaking about the franchise’s achievements, Ghost Town Games co-founder Phil Duncan said in a press statement:

“Five years on, still the most rewarding aspect of working on Overcooked! is getting to see and hear the reaction from players around the world. Seeing the fan art, the music covers, the cosplay and even the occasional tattoo is something I’ll never get used to. Hearing stories about players bonding with friends and loved ones over their time spent playing the game together is something we’re humbled to have played a part in.”

Co-founder Oli De-Vine also paid tribute to the Overcooked! community:

“Wow, it’s been five years! Well, first I have to acknowledge the amazing folks at Team17, without whom we wouldn’t be at this point at all. It’s been an amazing journey together with so many developers working tirelessly to make the game what it is today, which is something we frankly couldn’t have made any other way. Also, multiplayer games are only what they are because of community, and the community on this game is just amazing. Maybe it’s a virtue of being a game about cooperation and communication, but we’re really happy the game has found such a kind audience who are always so supportive and welcoming of the things we make, and who come and play together from all over the world. It’s been great, thank you all very much.”
