We are happy to announce that the first Major Update for Chef is finally available! You will now be able to explore the entire city, choose in which District you want your restaurant to be, and then amass Popularity to slowly extend your influence across the whole town!

Each District is characterized by a specific amount of potential customers and unique stats. By earning Influence Points you will be able to increase your restaurant's customer pool by acquiring the customers available in neighbouring Districts!

And after you managed to add them to your pool, you can now decide who can come and who should go away. We reworked the customers generation system, introducing the Attractiveness: adjust your Menu and your Policies to lure specific group of customers, while sending away unwanted guests. Thanks to many new Perks, you will now have a much better control over the target you want to aim for! Goodbye Cheapskates!

This update also includes a plethora of other fixes and improvements, including an overhaul of several UIs!
