Kopi Tiam is the first Windows 8 time-management game featuring popular local dishes from Singapore, Malaysia and some say Indonesia! Or you can also visit these local districts in Singapore yourself by taking a ride on the ubiquitous SBS transit buses or the convenient SMRT or LRT trains! I will continually update this game to add more dishes, challenging VIPs and more levels!
