Dining Zoom

by Docjekyll - Jam Entry

All your waiters bailed on their shift, so now you have to cover the whole dining room!
Play as a waiter zipping around the dining room trying to serve as many customers as possible. If you don't get their food out fast enough, customers will leave and you might not make enough money to keep the restaurant running.

Pick up / drop off food at the kitchen counter on the right.
Empty tables will fill with customers.
Customers will lose their patience and leave if they do not receive their food fast enough.
You need to clear a table (and drop off the trash at the counter on the right) before more guests can use the table.

Move - WASD or arrows
Pick up or put down - Spacebar

This game had me hooked for a period of time! Once the clients start coming i'm just getting in DO-mode and i'm all about getting as many orders as possible and that's great feeling! The graphics look perfect the music is just right, one thing though does the game have some increasing difficulty of some kind? I breezed through 7 days and didn't really feel that the difficulty was changing. Besides from it I had a blast with your game, thank you!

Pretty fun! I wish it had a little more variety—gets a little repetitive after a while. But pretty satisfying, not a bad little prototype

A bit repetitive but good prototype.

It gets quite fun when it's frantic and you start trying to efficiently find the best route. Some more feedback on pickup/put down food/dishes would do wonders to the feel I think. These sort of semi-simulations are fun though, and there's always so many features you could add and never enough time, so well done!

This is very good casual game that always work very well. But in my point of view it is very easy, I recommend you to insert some penalty for uncleared tables.. and if you want some bosts and other )

It's OK game for the first time (I made worse game first time) but be prepared for possible bad ratings.
Honestly it's the same concept as some other games I played so it wasn't even fun in the beginning and it was less and less fun with time (I finished 5 days). Some people will, of course, like it more than I.

Despite that don't be discouraged, your game development skills will get better with time and practice so I encourage you to participate in next LD and make better and more innovative game.

P.S: I fixed my game.

This game need some animations, but I love the music and the polish gameplay. Well done.

Very fun little game, could totally see something like this working on a larger scale or with multiplayer like overcooked. Had a good bit of fun playing this.

Simple concept but done very well, loved the art and the music and found myself playing it for quite some time :)

Great idea, could use a little more variety (like different dishes, jobs etc) After a while I did get into the zone, which was fun. Nice background music and graphics :)

Nice idea and very addictive game. The flo along the GUI and the sprites are nice. Nice work in every part of the game!
