Beacon Pines – Ver. 1.1.1

  • Release date: ???
  • Patch notes:

No patch notes available. This update brings the following to the game:

  • adds cooking minigame
    • This content update introduces a cooking minigame to Beacon Pines. It takes place in one of Luka’s memories from when he was a small child, similar to the fishing memory that already exists in the game. In this memory, you’ll take burger orders from familiar characters in town. Using the charms you’ve collected, you’ll mix-and-match burgers and toppings to satisfy each customer’s peculiar order. And along the way, you’ll get extra snippets of side story for each character.
      • If you’re playing the game for the first time, the cooking minigame will be introduced naturally to you as you progress through the story.
      • For those of you who have already completed the game, don’t worry, you can still enjoy the new minigame. The quickest way there is to bring up The Chronicle, go to the “Warehouse Of Horrors” turning point, and play the “struggle” charm. Then simply proceed through the dialog and head to the Last Chance Diner north of town square. Click on the middle photograph to enter the memory, and get cooking!
