About this game

Hungry Hearts Diner is a game about a small shop at the edge of a
big city. Take on the role of the hard-working old lady struggling to
manage her family's little restaurant—and all by her lonesome, too!

Cook tasty meals for a variety of colorful characters, and learn more
about their triumphs and struggles as they chow down on your tasty,
home-cooked food. Rice balls, dumplings, tempura...you can make it all!
In fact, the more you cook, the more dishes you'll unlock.
And hey, you'll even get a chance to learn about good ol' fashioned
Japanese cuisine while you're at it! Did you know you can make
jelly out of seaweed? Because I didn't!

Of course, the people who visit your diner all have a story to tell.
And what makes people more talkative than a full belly?
Feed your customers until they feel like sitting back and spinning
you a yarn or two!

But not every story is a happy one, and not every ending
joyous. Stay tuned for some twists and turns!

Story
------------------------------------------
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.

Slide open the screen door and you'll see a kindly old lady
hard at work behind the counter. Her husband's been sick
for a while, and she's had to run the place on her own.
It's hard work, but she's a tough one, and she gets by.

Sit down at one of the worn wooden tables, and close your
eyes. Thunk thunk goes the steady beat of a knife chopping
veggies. Hisss; the sound of meat sizzling in a pan.
Swish swish; a whisk beating eggs.
The soothing sounds of a simple kitchen.

Sit here long enough, and all that tension will just flow
right out of you. So come on in, order a hot meal, and take
a load off. The peace'll do you good.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, let me guess. The question you're asking yourself right now
is "is this game for me"? Well, maybe it is.
-Do you like casual/idle games?
-Do you like games where you run a shop?
-Are you looking for a nice, relaxing story?
-Ever played any of our other games, like Oden Cart or Showa Candy Shop? (If so, thanks a bunch!)
-Are you hungry?*
*Warning: This game is not edible. Please don't try to eat your phone.

If you answered "Yes!!!!" to any of the above, well,
maybe this game's for you. Give it a download and a shot.
It's free, so it won't cost you a dime!
We very much hope it brings you a smile! Or perhaps even some tears?

Despite describing itself as an "idle game" I found that it could easily be played through in a few hours, with few breaks or even slow-downs being forced by the mechanics. On the other hand, you can walk away from the game at any point and come back with very little impact on play. Personally, I loved the story, which plays out through the conversations triggered by satisfying customers. I will definitely be downloading the sequel!

Really great game! Its challenging because you have to pay for the food while trying to save up to upgrade your restaurant. Sadly, there are ads but they aren't annoying and they only pop-up every once in a while. I love how you get paid a few coins after watching a random ad. Overall, the game and the storyline is really unique and cute. ♡

This is a very cute game, and I genuinely enjoy the atmosphere and the way it builds. However, the app keeps crashing- sometimes losing more than an hour's worth of gameplay. The most recent crash lost me four diner levels and a few furniture upgrades- a significant loss at the early onset. If the crashing is inevitable, at the very least either a more robust autosave, or a way to manually save, would be great. As it is? I can't play this, knowing I'll have to redo 60% of my progress each time.
