The Diner:

Is a short, experimental, atmospheric indie horror-game. Using the Godot Engine 4.0's newest rendering and performance techniques.

This project started as a small prototype, for testing Godot 4's new graphics capabilities, but as time went on, it slowly became a full-on, short, interactive horror experience.

There are tons of interactable objects and items in this game. Can you find 'em all?

Average playtime: Ranges from 5-15 minutes.

-----------------------------------------------------

Story:

You play as Holly, a peppy college student in her early 20's. She gets a call from one of her long-time high-school friends; Siarra. 

They haven't seen each other in person for quite some time now, so Siarra wanted to meet up with Holly at a local diner in their area, to hang out, chat, and catch up.

Upon arrival, Holly is greeted with a completely barren and slightly overrun abandoned diner. Scared yet curious to figure out where Siarra went, she investigates this strange phenomenon.

-----------------------------------------------------

Very atmospheric and straightforward horror game. I liked the ability to interact with most things and the jumpscare was super well done as well. Nice ! 

I made a video on your game if you're interested :)

I have no idea what the heck monster that was but it looked really cool . Very cool game and the ending did get me . Your game is third and starts at 13:18

Thought it was worth saying for other content creators. The outro song is copyrighted. so if you wanna avoid demonetization or apparently being blocked in Russia, don't use the outro.

This game was FIRE!! I totally underestimated it, but I'm happy I tried it out! Good job dev :)

Enjoyable game! It has a Really good job scare in it. Sorry I compared the diner design to Ronald McDonalds I didn't read the disclaimer until after the video was already filmed. Great game though!

Uploaded me playing this game, as well as a couple other short games I found on this site, and was really happy for these 3 being my first 3 picks to play. Great Job to the dev, very good for a short horror game! Hope you continue to make games and doin what you love!

I ended up the monster's order at the diner! Also this a good spook with the nicely put together atmosphere and spookyness! :)

This game was scary and funny at the same time. I loved it. The fact that you could interact with almost everything was very entertaining and the story was pretty good too. Thank you for the awesome game!

Nice game

That was a great game, I understand it takes time and effort, but ofcourse it would be great with more endings or something, I understand it's supposed to be short, but it could be a bit longer with maybe like 2 more little endings. Besides all that, this is my favorite style of games and I loved it! :)

the game is the second game in the video down below;


Great feedback, and a nice video. Thank you for playing!

(+1)

Pretty good, great atmosphere. I kinda wish it had a few different endings, but otherwise it was pretty well made.

I hear you, I appreciate it my friend!

The Last Song in this game is copyrighted 3/5 from 4/5.

Hey there, the song used is public domain, which is stated at the start of the game. You shouldn't run into any trouble with that on YouTube. Thank you for playing though!

Yes, I saw the public domain but YouTube detected it as copyrighted so I removed it.

Something was off. Something was wrong. I knew it before I entered the place. The diner from hell did live up to its reputation, and hell it was. I tried to run back to the car, but the game wouldn't let me, so.. what happened next...?

Watch or play the game to find out.

I didn't run into any bugs, hiccups or snags. Kudos to all involved.

This was wholesome to watch hahaha. Thank you for playin'!

Your welcome.

(+1)

Great game and nice atmosphere. The eyes on the wall and the ending scared me pretty well

Happy to scare! :)

It wasn't the best game in existence, but it definitely wasn't bad. I enjoyed the experience.

You should probably include a controls screen somewhere. I didn't know I had access to a flashlight until i had finished the game and went back to this page. Yes, I know this is my fault, and the problem would have been solved by not being dumb.

I appreciate the honesty. Never strived for it to be GOTY, but I'm glad it's still enjoyable regardless.

As for the controls part, yeah. I can agree with you on that. You're not the first and certainly not the last who has had that issue.

Though I would appreciate it if people actually read game details before playing to avoid situations like this hahaha.

Still though, you're not dumb, it's a slight oversight on my end as well. Thanks for playing!

(+1)

It is one of the best action and adventure games I have tried, congratulations, I want you to subscribe to my channel and support me, greetings friend!!

(+1)

That was short and sweet :)

Gameplay is in german

Oooh very interesting video! I understood most of what you said, guess German classes came in handy in the end haha.

Thank you for playing!

Its a very well made game, i love it.
