About this game

Welcome to Tokyo, a city of clamor and crowds. A place where the broth is hot, the winters are cold, and people's lives often take surprising turns.

See that oden cart? It's a small mobile food stand that sells hot bowls of hearty broth stocked with a variety of hand-picked ingredients, from daikon radish to tofu. Here Gramps, the taciturn proprietor, serves meals to a rotating cast of customers who sit for a spell at one of the cart's few available seats.

In Oden Cart 4: ~Life Goes On~, take on the role of the oden cart owner and serve delicious bowls of oden to your customers! As they dig in, they'll strike up a conversation, share their troubles, and give you a glimpse of the joys and sorrows that delight and plague them.

Sell enough food and you'll save up money with which you can stock new varieties of oden. Customers all have their favorite types of oden, and if you serve them enough of them they'll become regular customers.
This means they'll hang around longer and eat more oden! You might end up listening to them gripe about the same thing a few times, but patience is a virtue, and virtues are always rewarded in the end. The more you get to know your customers, the more likely they'll be to tell you more about themselves...and maybe even tell you what they really think!

Oden 4: ~Life Goes On~ is the 4th installment of the popular Oden Cart series. Not only is there a fun main story for you to experience, we also have a massive
additional story episode* available for download! If the main course isn't enough, why not go in for a second helping?

*The additional episode requires a real money purchase.

[Story]
----------------------------------
Bundled up against the cold, crowds hurry to and fro. They barely seem to notice the presence of a single old man, quietly trudging down the street pulling a food cart.

For his part, he gives them a cursory glance now and then, but mostly focuses on putting one heavy, plodding foot in front of the other—much like the people who don't seem to pay him much mind.

This is an oden cart.
A small food stall where people can grab a quick bite. And tonight, like so many other nights, a few souls will step out of the gloom and sit for a spell, seeking a hot meal and a moment's respite. Each of them bears their own joys and sorrows, their dreams and regrets.

Tonight, at this cart, a miraculous little tale will reveal itself.
And if you so desire, you can be there to witness it for yourself.
----------------------------------
[Additional Episode Details]
----------------------------------
This episode is a story set in an alternate universe from that of the main story. Though some characters may look the same, they are totally different individuals here in this parallel oden dimension.

Their stories, however, are just as gripping, just as filled with ups and downs, and hopefully just as much fun to experience!

It's definitely an idle game (there's not much to it). Fortunately, the game has a lot of humor and good artwork. It also provided me some very interesting insight into Japanese culture and oden. It's lightweight and you might only drop in every now and again, but I'm sure if you wanted to you could just wait about 3-4 minutes and let the ad button roll up so that you could binge their stories. It's not that bad. :)

I've played other English translated games from this developer (including the previous Oden carts) and knew what to expect: easy gameplay, simple yet lovely graphics and setting, nice stories, some tugging at the heart too. I've only played through the free version so far and felt that it was a little shorter than previous versions, but enjoyed it anyways. I intend to purchase the extra story and intend to keep playing the other games too! (Please back the other Oden carts to the store!)

Love it. One thing, though, I'd love it better if the gripes wouldn't 'expire' after 12 hours. I love to play this to wind down to sleep, and not during the day in which I have lots of things to do. I'd love it better if I can open the game only once a day. Another thing, perhaps the customers whose stories are completed should be allowed to still visiting the cart (except the problematic ones). It feels kind of sad when, towards the end of the game, there is only one customer coming each time.
