Somewhere along the venerable Route 7, in the middle of nowhere, you will find Joe’s Diner. As an employee working the graveyard shift for the next month, your primary task is to keep the tables clean – no tough challenge at all.
Unfortunately there’s a rub to it. The old Diner was built on the site of a former Indian cemetery. Amongst the buried, two rival chieftains are laid to rest; while alive each could not stand the other.
One chieftain endeavors only to rest in peace. The other, a prankster both in life and the afterlife, is prone to ruffle the feathers of his fellow chief.
Besides your tasks as a waiter, it’s up to you to keep things calm and not incur the angry chieftains’ wrath. To lay them both to everlasting rest just do your duty. Sounds easy but it’s not – promised.

Joe’s Diner is a horror game in name only. It is not scary. It is also borderline insultingly easy. In Joe’s Diner you play as a night-shift busboy who takes leftovers from tables and place them in the trash, all while making sure that neither you nor the paranormal activity make enough noise to literally wake the dead. This means that you need to shut off any phones, jukeboxes, friers, or other devices that turn on by themselves, all while making sure you do your job on time. There is no variation in the gameplay, just throw out leftovers and keep the sound to a minimum. Unlike other horror games of recent memory that are capable of keeping you on edge with excellent sound design and punishing yet fair difficulty, Joe’s Diner is mediocre. It tries to be the next Five Nights at Freddy’s, but really there is no comparison when one game gives you a game over after giving you a jumpscare featuring a murderous decrepit animatronic with heavy uncanny valley undertones, and the other gives you a game over after flashing a stock photo of a generic Native American on the screen. Joe’s Diner could have been so much more. But instead it is just generic and dull. It doesn’t even have the charm of an actual Diner.
