Linux is still broken
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! is the massive sequel to the surprise best selling original, one of the few games that gives players complete control on how they want to build their restaurant.
The game starts like any other morning at SherriSoda Tower as you take the elevator up to open Cook, Serve, Delicious!, a platinum star restaurant that was surging in popularity thanks to your amazing chef and management skills. Just then, a swarm of police surround SherriSoda Tower. It seems the SherriSoda head executives were secretly stealing funds from the company at the same time they were incurring a staggering amount of debt, draining the accounts of the tower and several of the businesses inside of it, including CSD. Just like that, the tower was closed and put up for federal auction, including everything inside of it. It was all over… the Cook, Serve, Delicious! restaurant was no more.
Angry but determined to rebuild, you’ve scrounged up all of your personal life’s savings and bought commercial space inside the Teragon Supertower, the largest skyscraper in the city. It’s here that you will start a brand new Cook, Serve, Delicious! restaurant, build it back to its former glory, and rebuild your legacy as the best chef in the world.
- A 60+ hour experience as you build your restaurant from a roach infested eatery to a World Class Platinum Star experience by either running your own restaurant or branching out as a chef for hire, where you take jobs within the tower and various restaurants as you gain experience with the large array of foods, which spans 400 levels across 33 restaurants!
- Several modes including Classic Mode that brings back the classic gameplay of the original, Stress mode that instantly rockets the difficulty to the highest setting, and Zen mode, which allows you to take it easy and relaxes many of the stressful elements to provide an easy day of cooking.
- All new gameplay features and additions, with a greater flexibility of difficulty for those who like it casual or insanely difficult.
- Over 200 foods, sides, drinks and desserts to choose from, a staggering increase from the 30 foods in the original game.
- New local co-op mode! The all new split screen co-op feature allows you to play through the entire game with two players, with the ability for players to drop in and out during your progress within the game.
- Tons of lore including an email system with over 600 emails, unlockable secrets, and tons more!
- Unlock over 1,200 restaurant objects and design your restaurant however you'd like with the Designer mode.
- All new 1080p native/60fps code.

Game screen is zoomed in really far and I can't play or fix it :(. Please help I deleted it and reinstalled multiple times but it won't fix itself.
i started playing this on my mac but i want to continue playing it on my pc. is there a way to transfer saves?
For Linux, if you see veggies fall down very fast on the main screen, your timers are too fast. Set V-Sync under Graphics options to True and it will work normally again.
You can notice the issue also if you start the tutorial and try to cook burgers.
(This game will be added to cloudsaver soon)
I cant get it to run on my mac :(
The Windows version's tutorial is bugged; will it ever be fixed? I have a screenshot showing how I could not finish tutorial level 3 nor any of the ones after it because the side dish failed to materialize (can't seem to attach it here though).
One of my favourite games from the racial justice and equality bundle!!!! So addictive and challenging!
However, I found a really annoying bug when I play Firekickers' 2nd stage. Toast/sandwich is a bit buggy, because when the customers asked for white top, white bottom, and I give them what they want, it's a wrong order. Sometimes it's the other way around - they want wheat top, wheat bottom, but when i give wheat, it's a wrong order. I can't get a perfect day :( Perhaps there's a typo between wheat and white in the code somewhere?
Having said that, I can't wait for CSD3!!!!
I like the game but I was hoping more like Diner Dash type gameplay. Still great game.
This game makes me feel like I took too much adderal in the morning. Also makes me feel like there is a gun to my head. Very fun, probably even better if you are a mascohist!
Hi! I recently purchased the black lives matter bundle and this game came with it. I tried downloading both mac files and they both say the CSD2 file is damaged. What should I do?
I am having the same issue, does not work on Apple iMac 2015 (27 inch)
Hi, I have windows and was having trouble with file downloads but downloading the itch.io app makes it way easier to install games! Here is the link for it: https://itch.io/app
Just click "download" from your BLM bundle link and then it will show up in your library in the app so you can install it to your computer. Hope this helps!
This is super fun! Best game I've played in a while!! Only problem I have is hot dog and burger buns always go straight to pretzel without letting me choose.
Tried to open the most recent Mac version of the game after unzipping, and I'm getting a dialogue that says "Unable to find game!" when opening the app:
After some googling, found the solution. If you're having the same problem as me, just do this:
In Finder, copy the CSD2.app file to any other folder (e.g., your Desktop) and open it from the new location. It should work.
Tried to download both apple files and they're prompting me that these files are damaged and can't be open. Any solution for this? Bought it from the bundle.
Can't run it on Windows :c got it from the bundle, anyone facing Windows problems as well?
on linux and i think i have the same issue as KeithIrwin below. Its not just the hamburgers in the tutorial malfunctioning, but none of the timers work on cooking food. The food never finishes cooking until you navigate away from it, and then it immediately burns. Is there any way to fix this?
Nice try on the I support azerty but despite selecting it you still have to use wasd to move around the menu. :P
When I download the Mac file it is corrupted every time: "
“CSD2” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Bin." Anyone know of a fix for this?
Okay so, I'm completely addicted to this game. I love restaurant games and this one might be one of the greatest I've ever played. It's very complete so that makes it a bit more complex, but once you play a couple times it's so worth it!
So I'm running this on MacOS Catalina and I have it fullscreen and at my native resolution but it's still "blurry", or seems low-res. The resolution DOES change when I change different settings. My res is 2560x1600
I tried to play the linux version of this. It required an old version of libssl for some reason. After I installed that I could run the game, but then I can't finish the tutorial. The nachos go fine, but when I put the burgers on the grill, they just sit there unless I hit enter or click off the grill and then a window comes up to tell me something about the timer, but before I can even read it, it tells me that my burger has burned and to try again. I'm not sure what to do.
Which libssl version? I can't launch it at all :(
I tried installing a package that had the correct version of libssl, but the game still complained that it couldn't find it.
When I attempt to play in full screen it frequently jumps back to being windowed, but the button response is still acting like it's full screen...basically this is making it unplayable unless I keep it windowed
Unfortunately that's a known issue we weren't able to fix. We moved to a new version of the game engine for CSD 3 that solved the problem, but yeah we could never pin down that bug for CSD 2 for some users. I'm sorry. :(
For those having Mac issues,
Please go to the Downloads page for CSD 2 and try the new "CSD2_GOG_Mac_v2_60m1_1_2020.app.zip" file and let me know if that works. Thank you and apologies!
It works, thank you!
Hey, I just downloaded that and all I get after authorisation etc is a window that says "Unable to find game!!". Please help!
I know plenty of people have already said this but this game isn't working on Mac for me. It says it is "damaged and should be moved to trash."
Lack of ultrawide kinda sucks. Game is awfully stretched in fullscreen and in borderless game doesn’t “capture mouse” and leaves “holes” on sides other windows are visible through. I seen no native support is planned, but not even black bars? Come on!
Fix for Mac users getting the error "CSD2.app is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash". Tested on latest version macOS Catalina 10.15.5.
Warning: only use this method if you are comfortable using Terminal.
1. Open Terminal.
2. Navigate to the directory the game is located. Example:
3. Type the following and press enter.
xattr -cr CSD2.app
4. Run the game.
Thanks, this worked for me even when the CSD2_GOG_Mac_v2_60m1_1_2020.app.zip version didn't
Thank you so much for this solution! Using it let me play the game when I got the "Unable to find game!!" error.
Is there another way to fix this without opening Terminal? The developer's new file hasn't really fixed the issue...
Don’t be intimidated by Terminal. All you have to do is:
- Open Terminal
xattr -crand a space (don’t press return yet!)
- Drag the game icon onto the Terminal window, to
- Press return to run the command
Something went wonky with the “extended attributes” in the game files and they’re just getting in our way, so this command just clears them (
-c is for clear, and
-r applies it to the entire game’s files).
Not sure if you needed such a detailed explanation, but hope at least someone learns something!
Perfect! Thanks so much for the advice.
Hi, I believe the Linux zip has Windows files. You can't run the files at all. :(
Hi, I just sent an email to your support. The file is also saying its damaged and can't be opened on my Mac.
I just bought this for Mac and it keeps saying the file is damaged and can’t be opened.
Just wanted to say thanks for including this in the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. Have always wanted to try out a cooking/restaurant sim and now I get to do just that while supporting a good cause. Your selflessness is being noticed!
Hello there! I've also had the message that the app is damaged on a Mac computer. I've re-downloaded multiple times and I still cannot open the app :(
Ah apologies, I think CSD 2 doesn't support later versions of Mac OS. Please email me at support(at)vertigogaming.net and I can try to help further.
Hi there, on 2 different Macs I have tried to open this, both times it says the app is damaged and cannot be opened.
Great series! CSD3 coming to itch.io any time soon?
