All You Can Eat is a short point and click adventure game stylised like a comic-book by Gamechuck. I picked this game out whilst browsing through the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.
You play as a modern-day hero who quits his job so he can spend his life in an all-you-can-eat diner. Back in 1981, you got a coupon for a $1.99 all you can eat buffet and decided to exploit a loophole – if you never leave, you can eat whatever you want any time. You spend all day in the restaurant and sleep under your favourite table. Your life is thrown into turmoil as it’s announced the restaurant is going to have close!
After talking to the chef you find out that the diner is being offered one million dollars to close, which they have accepted. After some amusing dramatic irony and 4th wall breaking, your quest is revealed; you need one million dollars so the diner can stay open.
It is revealed you have no savings, so instead of leaving the diner and returning to normal life, you must leave the safety of the diner and go on a quest to save it! Of course you don’t actually raise on million dollars, because with that kind of money you no longer need to stay at the diner 24/7.
In this game, you’ll uncover an evil plot by MegaSlime Corporation and save the diner from foreclosure so you can live there forever. The entire game is in wonderful comic-book style and once you beat the game, you can export your game as a .pdf so you get a comic strip playthrough of the game. The ending is satisfying and wraps everything up really nicely. There’s also a new game + mode with director’s commentary.
