UIG Entertainment announced that Joe’s Diner, the horror game themed around a diner that’s build on top of an Indian burial ground, has officially launched on the PS4 and is currently available to download over on the PlayStation Store.
The full release is available for only $19.99. The game is oddly rated E10+, so apparently despite the horror themes there’s no actual blood, guts, boobs or butchering. I don’t know if that’s going to make a lot of horror fans angry that this is a tame ghost tale or if it’s going to make a bunch of families jump up and buy a copy because it’s a family-friendly horror tale. The latter is definitely more rare than the former.
The game centers around players taking on the role of an employee working the graveyard shift who begins to encounter spooky happenings at night thanks to two dead Indian chiefs making his life miserable. Players will have to survive 30 days without losing their minds. You can check out the trailer below.
The minute long trailer only covers what’s already mentioned in the press release about surviving the night, cleaning the tables and making sure everything stays tidy. Part of it reminds me a little bit of Nightmare Cafe from back in the 1990s.
Anyway, the game has been out for a while on Steam and now PS4 gamers will have an opportunity to play the 3D horror title.
It kind of sounds like it’s cashing in on the Five Nights at Freddy’s fame. So long as it’s a solid gameplay experience and offers up some genuinely creepy scares then I think it should be able to find a decent audience on the PS4.
You can grab a digital copy of the game right now for $19.99 for either PC or PlayStation. The user ratings aren’t that bad, by the way.
