Maude's old diner was struggling to stay open.

But then one late night, three unexpected guests arrived.

The last hope of saving the diner lies with these guests, yet there's still one problem...

Something followed them.

This game features two difficulty modes: Normal and Easy.

The endings are not dependent on difficulty, it is simply a matter of challenge!

I now have diarrhea because of the BLT sandwich

very good

I cant look around

may need a mouse

will it give me a virus if i download it?

because on my computer it says it will.


Nope. Windows does that when it doesnt recognize the creator lol, just press more info and then run anyway



I would love to see a sequel to this.

Heck I want there to be an endless mode aswell, maybe even co-op.

Anyway we could buy the models to use for stuff? I'd love to port a few to vrchat

Can you do it on iPad

Zed-- I've been enjoying playing through your entire catalog recently. You've certainly found your niche and a style to call your own. Plenty of scares and/or anxiety to be found in each, but there's a wholesome quality that I find quite endearing in your work as well. In my playthrough there was a point where the enemy could clearly see Maude but didn't attack. I'm guessing this was a bug? Thanks for your hard work btw!

This game is very good, not gonna lie but when I am Sam in the game, I tried to crouch beside the table but it wouldn't let me. I was spamming CTRL but I couldn't crouch. And the shadowcatcher would get me because he would see my head. I tried restarting and it also didn't work and there was also another problem where I tried to make a Mac N' Cheese sandwich but when I filled the pot and put an ingredient I forgot, I put some noodles but it wouldn't let me put it in. I even tried grabbing a plate and grabbing the food from the pot but it didn't work. I had to exit the game and make another food.

looks fun i saw Eddie play it he said it was fun so i wanted to try but you to download the game so i cant but seems super fun.

This game looks good, but for some reason, I can't pick up anything. I tried restarting it & deleting and redownloading it, but nothing works.

Apologies for the issue!

First, I'd like to reiterate the fact that the game will only work correctly on Windows.
I've seen reports of strange behaviors which were caused by people trying to run the game on other devices.

If you are indeed playing in Windows, I need to ask if the character switch is working correctly.
When pressing the "tab" key the game will switch characters, correct?

Yes, I'm on windows. Tab works and so do all of the other controls / interactions, but the only issue is that I can't pick anything up.

How strange!
I apologize that you've had to experience this issue.
I try my best to ensure that everyone has a bug-free experience, but sometimes odd things like this still occur.

The only thing I can suggest at this point is to manually remove the save data for the game.
The game's data file is kept in 


You'll need to replace the USER-NAME with the name of your computer.
There will be a file named GameData that you'll need to remove.
Once it's gone, relaunch the game and a new save file will be created.

Doing this may not even solve the problem, but it's the only thing I can think of to try.

I apologize once more for the issue.

Ok. Thank you.

If that doesn't work, the only other thing I can do is suggest trying the 32-bit version of the game.
I keep an unlisted page that contains 32-bit versions TMFTW 1,  Shadowcatcher, and the Vermander Curse in one ZIP.
If you don't mind downloading the whole thing, then here it is:

OMG, nice game

The game will only run on Windows .
If you're not using Windows, then it won't work.

Also, this game is free. You'll be asked to donate, but donations are completely optional.
If you are unable to play the game, you should ask Itch for a refund immediately.


I absolutely LOVE this game!! Your content is so creative and I love the game stradigy you put into the games, there's always a puzzle that you need to solve like AAAAAA it's so creative!

hey zed im trying to download this and my antivirus is flagging it saying it is infected with threat provider something could i get a bit of help please

Your Antivirus is probably saying that you can get hacked if you download this or there's an unknown file that's hiding in the game. Maybe you should try looking through your whole computer and see what's wrong

I LOVE IT. Its so entertaining and fun!

Thanks so much for making this game and sharing it for free! I really really like it and I gave it a positive review. :)


i cant seem to pick up anything

I'm having the same issue.

I made this account to say that you are my favourite game devs in majority of horror devs I've seen, I could not play all your games but I've seen them played from the beginning to the recent one by Jay from KubzScouts! They all are so homey and eerie; a mix of weirdcore and comfortcore and I love so much! I would love to play your future games, rest well and be hydrated dear dev! 🌟💖🍓

Hey, thank you very much!
That's very kind of you to say, and it's always nice to hear it when I manage to become one of someone's favorites.  :)


Huge fan of Zed's games, horror + puzzle = W game

Thank you!


I loved this game, Although i fully didnt finish it so far Its amazing! Keep up the good work :)

Thank you very much!
Glad to hear you've enjoyed the game, and I'll be sure to do my best going forwards.

Thanks for playing!

This game is Awesome. Keep the good work up Zed.

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.  :)

Whenever I try to play the game, i cannot look around.

Hey man, I never played your games because I'm on a Linux, but I watch Jazzghost's videos so I know them lol, Just wanted to say maybe this game is my favorite (although I haven't played it)!Your games are cool, keep making them!

Thank you very much!  :)

I'm not sure if you know but somebody on google play stole your game and published it on their own profile


At least we have android now


Unfortunately, there's not much I can do about it.
I've reported the account multiple times, but Google doesn't seem to want to do anything about it.

Gameplay en ESPAÑOL.

my favorite zed game 

Thanks for playing!


Here it is. TBMK 1. God I wasn't expecting there was actually NG+ but oh well. Same game, different dialogues unfortunately.

A really good game!! But for some reason, once I'm finished making the food and try to serve, the customers won't take their food.. Any way to fix this?


The cooking mechanics of this game had a precursor(In a sense). The Bit More Know 2. Zed Tech's deleted game. Here. 

it took me a while, but it was really fun! i'm excited to play some of your other games! i made a video on it on my channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5xHTYX6xoxJOG4nPQgv_gw

super fun game
