About Heaven’s Diner
Heaven’s Diner is a free-to-play, time management restaurant game that provides players with a unique social gaming experience by combining the real world with the online world through integration of user-generated food content and location-based activities into a mythological heaven, where players strive to serve their favorite dishes to mythical angels and gods in a race to become the God of Food. Players upload pictures of their favorite restaurant dishes along with a short reviews of each dish, which are shared with other players in the game. Points are accumulated based on the popularity of each player’s food content among other players, and on each player’s aptitude at serving the foods to the specific liking of the angels and gods. Special quests played only in the game’s soon-to-be-released companion iPhone app allow for earning of additional points while engaging in location-based gameplay. Additional features in development include expanded in-game items and availability of exciting new virtual goods using Karma, the official virtual currency of Heaven’s Diner.
