About

Somewhere along the venerable Route 7, in the middle of nowhere, you will find Joe’s Diner. As an employee working the graveyard shift for the next month, your primary task is to keep the tables clean – no tough challenge at all.

Unfortunately there’s a rub to it. The old Diner was built on the site of a former Indian cemetery. Amongst the buried, two rival chieftains are laid to rest; while alive each could not stand the other.

One chieftain endeavors only to rest in peace. The other, a prankster both in life and the afterlife, is prone to ruffle the feathers of his fellow chief.

Besides your tasks as a waiter, it’s up to you to keep things calm and not incur the angry chieftains’ wrath. To lay them both to everlasting rest just do your duty. Sounds easy but it’s not – promised.Features

> Getting advance/Free < It's a difficult Undertaking to objectively evaluate the Game. I have known the Guys from VIS Games for about 2 Years now and I am aware of how much Work and Effort the Team puts into its Games and now want to show outside the Simulators what they can do. Joe's Diner is the second Project I know about, which goes in the Direction of "Horror" to Pineview Drive and has not hit its Target with me 100%. ---------------------------------What's the Game about? ---------------------------------We play an unnamed Person who has accepted a Job Offer in "Joe's Diner" and now takes over the Leniency there for 30 Days. What has been concealed from us, however, is the Fact that Joe's Diner is located in an old Indian Cemetery where two hostile Tribal Chiefs are buried. One wants to be peace in Peace only in peace and the other wants to prevent this at all Costs and so we are already stuck in the middle of the "Story" of Joe's Diner. So We take over the night vision for 30 Days and Should ensure peace and Order i.e. clear tables in Plain text & Disturbance Sources such as Soundbox, Taps, telephone, Fax etc. Worry. You should have the Attention on three Things. Clearing Tables, turning Off Sources of interference & keeping an Eye on the time at 6 o 'clock tomorrow, all Tables must be empty and continue To reign calm. If one of these Factors fails, the View has failed. ---------------------------------Positive Aspects---------------------------------The Game principle initially seems relatively light, but over time more and more hectic on certain "Key Days" new Special Features come to the Player and you have to To concentrate where to set your Priorities Should I turn the Tap On the same way or rather clear the Table quickly? These Questions come more and more frequently in the Course of The Game and at the End you need 2-3 Tries until the Day was successfully completed. The hectic Game principle mixed with the great Soundscape contributes a lot to the Atmosphere and has succeeded the Developers well. ---------------------------------Negative Aspects---------------------------------Unfortunately, there is a minor Problem at Joe's Diner and this Affects the game genre many will start from a Horror Game due to the Trailer & general "Day Classification" A Kind of "Successor" to Pineview Drive, however, Bears no Resemblance In this regard except 1-2 Gameplay points because you don't meet any Jump-scares in the Game. In general, due To the simple Degree of difficulty, the Gameplay can seem particularly boring at the Beginning of the Game quite quickly, because it gets really more difficult on the whole only at the End of the Game. ---------------------------------Conclusion---------------------------------Joe's Diner goes a healthy Middle Ground between Action-adventure horror, with the Horror aspect more in the Background. Those who like hectic Gameplay and a certain Challenge are perfect to master everything the first time with Joe's Diner will certainly have its Fun. If you start from a pure Horror Game ala Pineview Drive in this game, however, you will surely be disappointed here with less Horror but more Action in the Foreground. Finally, you have to say due To the low Price you can certainly not make any Mistakes in the Purchase gives the Game a Chance and get involved in the Adventure =) LG
