Serve sandwiches and protect customers from the insane chef! A restaurant simulation game like you've never seen before.
WHAT IS CAFE MURDER?
Cafe Murder is a game about two lovable siblings on a quest to make their sandwich shop into a five star establishment. The player, controlling Rainy the waitress, must prepare and serve sandwiches. Things are spiced up by Rainy's brother Stabby, a homicidal chef who goes on rampages with his butcher knife and attacks customers.
Speaking of customers, Rainy and Stabby are joined by a large cast of unique characters who visit the cafe, each with their own personality and preferences (see character descriptions below).
With endearing characters, comical violence, and fast-paced sandwich-making, we hope Cafe Murder will add some character and soul to the genre of "restaurant simulation" games.
We believe that the more minds involved in the creative process, the more interesting and fun the results. That's why we're offering some rewards that let you take a creative role in the game's production- see our rewards section at the right.
EDIT: We reached our funding goal- woohoo! A big thank you to everyone who has supported us so far. But things aren't over yet...
Any additional funding from here on out will help us make an even better game with more content and features, and available on more platforms (iPad, Android, and browsers). Your contributions may also be used to purchase a few sandwiches- for research purposes only.
CHEF GRIZZLE: Deceased. A chef known for his delicious sandwiches, Grizzle raised his son and daughter to take over the business someday, but he never planned for his early death at the hands of an industrial oven. It happened one night when an incomplete pork sandwich fell into the flames. Unable to let a sandwich go incomplete, he dove into the flames to save it, but he and the sandwich both ended up well-done.
The Player Character. Rainy has been both the owner and waitress of Cafe Murder ever since her esteemed father passed away. She carries a bazooka that shoots pink rubber balls, which can be used to save choking customers and to ward off Stabby's attacks.
Rainy's brother and the Cafe's chef. Though very skilled at sandwich ingredient preparation, he has a homicidal streak and sometimes attacks customers with his knives. Rainy must protect the customers with her rubber ball bazooka, lest anyone actually get injured. As long as everyone stays safe, customers will enjoy the show and leave big tips.
A corpulent food connossieur. She takes up two seats but leaves huge tips if you feed her well.
OLD LADY CRENSHAW
A respected figure around town. She's a bit picky and stingy with her money, but if you do manage to please her she will spread word of your cafe's food and service, thus giving your reputation a boost.
Pincushion does everything hardcore, including his sandwich-eating; he actually enjoys being attacked by Stabby. This leads to a top notch performance that entertains all customers to the max.
[Graphics for the following characters are not yet available- but they can be made possible with your donation!]
Sally is a celebrity who is known to be a bit of a food-lover. Should your cafe became well-known, she might just stop by and leave a big tip, as well as a big boost to your popularity.
Mr. Beeba is a local man of questionable character, which isn't helped by the fact that he always wears sunglasses and a trench coat. He only goes to cheap, dirty, cafes with bad reputations.
Fred is a rushed businessman who doesn't have patience for slow service. He likes to get in and out the door as fast as possible, which often leads to choking on his food.
GRIZZLE FAMILY MEMBERS
There are a few distant cousins and great-uncles in the Grizzle family who show up from time to time in Cafe Murder. If they enjoy their sandwich, they may give a present of some sort- whether a useful item or a decoration for the cafe. [You too can become a Grizzle family member - see rewards at the right!]
We need your help to bring Cafe Murder and the Grizzles to life. All they want is a chance to serve sandwiches… and sometimes attack customers. But mainly serve them.
