Celebrities are entering the rounds in social games like Restaurant City and Cafeworld, Farmville and Cityville. This week, FarmVille (and other Zynga games) have been taken over by Lady Gaga via GagaVille, today, Playfish announces that celebrity chef and ‘Food Revolution‘ star Jamie Oliver will be making an appearance in its Restaurant City game on Facebook.
Playfish’s Restaurant City is one of the top 25 Facebook games with 5.7 million monthly active users. Players have the chance to tap into their inner restaurateur — decorating and running their own establishment, including choosing which recipes to serve (and master for greater rewards) which sounds a lot like Cafeworld, why he choose Restaurant City befaffles me.
For four weeks, these Restaurant Citylites will have access to Jamie Oliver-branded recipes, such as Farfalle Carbonara, Asparagus Fettuccine, Basil Pesto Pasta; and Meatball Pasta. Once players master these recipes, they will be rewarded with in-game items like the Jamie Oliver Pasta Maker as well as a recipe for the real-life version of the dish. It’s fabulously delicious, I want to have his equipment in Cafeworld too !
