Announcing: Puppy Chef Academy Beta!

Hello again, chefs!

Well, it's officially been one month since Puppy Chef Academy launched on Steam! Where does the time go? Anyway, I hope you're all enjoying your time at the academy, learning how to cook, and making friends. As for me, I've been chipping away on features and fixes for you all to enjoy. Now I'm here today to inform you all about Puppy Chef Academy's beta channel, and also give some instructions about how to access it.


What's in the beta?

Simply put, the beta channel of Puppy Chef Academy is where the latest, cutting-edge version of the game has been pushed. The beta channel includes the latest build of the game with various fixes, changes, and features that haven't gone through an entire quality assurance cycle yet. That means that if you encounter an issue in the main game, there might be a chance it's already fixed in the beta branch! And if it isn't already, then as always, you can message me directly or post in the forums to make suggestions which will then be added to the beta.

Once I feel confident enough in the beta branch that I believe it won't be a deterrence to anyone in the main branch, that's when I merge the main branch with the beta branch, making the newest build available for all users.

What's not in the beta?

When brand-new recipes are introduced into the game, they will not be pushed into the beta branch. Builds that introduce new recipes will be pushed into a separate branch for internal testing. When the new recipe is ready, it'll merge with both the main branch and beta branch. This way, new recipes can be enjoyed by everyone at the same time, not just those in the beta.

How do I access it?

In Steam, right click on the game and click on the "Properties" option. From there, navigate to the Betas tab. Enter the following password into the box:


And then click on the "Check Code" box. This will unlock the beta channel for you. Opt into the beta branch from the drop-down menu on the Betas tab, and Steam will begin downloading the beta.

Where can I find patch notes?

Since not everyone will be participating in the beta and won't want to be spammed with patch notes for a build they aren't playing, patch notes for the beta branch will reside in the game's Steam forums. These patch notes will be continuously updated alongside the beta branch and include a timestamp so you'll know when the last update was made.


As always, thank you all so much for playing Puppy Chef Academy! The game wouldn't be what it is today without your support. Have fun!

Until next time, cheers!

Update for 9/8/2018

Hello again, chefs!

You may have noticed an update for the main game was just pushed to you. It's a small update, it just fixes the name of one of the credits.

The demo was also updated, which fixed a couple typos during the mixing step and also re-arranged that step's layout to match that of the full game.

Thank you, I hope you're enjoying the game!
