Why, hello there. Welcome to Hungry Hearts Diner.
This place has been around for years now, and we've
got our fair share of new visitors and regulars alike. Pull
up a chair, grab a menu, and give me a holler when you
know what you'd like to order.
Now, most folk come for the food, but stay for the stories.
I've got a bit of a gift for gab, as they say, and a cabinet
full of fine tales about the good old days, if you're willing
to hang around and lend me an ear. Oh, but look at me
ramblin' on. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your visit.
Hungry Hearts Diner is a narrative-focused restaurant sim
set in the retro age of Showa era Japan. Help an old couple
of diner owners run their cozy little business by cooking food,
making deliveries, and interacting with a unique cast of varied
customers. They'll need all the assistance they can get.
Granny, you see, is as busy as a bee running errands, taking
orders, and chatting with customers who are drawn to her
no-nonsense manner and good-natured charm.
Meanwhile, Grandpa scowls in the kitchen, grumpy as
ever. Gruff though he may be, his food is simple and
scrumptious, and everyone who tastes his cooking
always comes back for a second helping.
This diner's got its fair share of regulars, and they're an odd bunch,
let me tell you. The only things they've got in common are voracious
appetites and troubled tales to tell. They'll get to talking, too, as long
as their bellies are full. A good meal always loosens the tongue, I say,
and certain dishes do the trick better than most. Everyone's got that
one meal they just can't forget, after all, and a hungry heart needs
filling just as bad as a belly does.
The fourth entry in the hit diner sim series is here!
Whether old fan or newcomer, this game comes with a healthy
helping of enjoyment, surprises, laughter, and tears.
We hope you like it!
On a tiny side street in a nameless little neighborhood sits an
old Japanese diner. Things are quiet here; old-fashioned
you might say. But of course they are. It's Showa era Japan,
and the television is just starting to come into vogue.
Come on in, have a seat, and close your eyes.
Thunk thunk goes the steady beat of a knife chopping
veggies. Hisss; the sound of meat sizzling in a pan.
Getting hungry? Good, 'cause the food here's sure to
warm your belly and leave you feeling nice and full.
Besides, the kindly old granny who runs the place needs
all the business she can get. She just opened the diner's
doors the other day, and she's busy as a bee trying to stay
afloat. Managing a successful eatery's no easy task when
you're all by your loneso—huh?
Wait a sec, who's that helping her out in the kitchen?
Welcome to Hungry Hearts Diner!
It's a cozy place, a place where regular folk gather 'round
worn wooden tables for a bite—and maybe some friendly
conversation, too. Here, you'll find food to fill your belly
and stories that'll warm your heart.
Thanks for coming, and we hope you enjoy your meal!
