Delicious: Emily’s True Love is a time management game that was released in 2011. It is the eighth title in the Delicious series of games. The game’s storyline continues after the events of the previous game. Emily has realized her dreams of owning and managing a restaurant, but has set aside her personal life. She then gets a letter and a rose from a long lost love. The story unfolds further as the player progresses through the game.
In each level, players must complete orders from customers and clean the restaurant. A certain amount of money must be achieved for the level in order to move to the next. Guests arriving at the restaurant have heart ratings. The more red hearts the guest has, the higher the patience level. Guests who are served quickly leave tips for Emily. If the player does not serve the guest on time, they leave the restaurant without paying. There are also mini-games, such as finding a mouse, taking tests while serving guests, and receiving parcels. Money earned for each level can be used to upgrade the restaurant (new chairs, tables, curtains, decorations, etc). The game takes players to five different locations around the globe.
