Hi! I played your game and I absolutely enjoyed it. I loved the concept of stretching to get to the end and serve the customers. The fact that also you had to get those bottles of lotion i believe(?) to get more of a stretch going.
The random noises as well such as “My word!” Or “I say!” was a personal favorite of mine.
Overall, I’ll say:
10/10 would stretch again.
(Sorry for the late response, I just made my Itch.io account and the video I made on this game is a few months old)
I absolutely loved playing this game! I love the mix of platformer and puzzles, not to mention the sound effects are the best. xD The rubberband and balloon are my favs. lol I made a video of the game play and my first impressions with it. I hope you enjoy and I'm looking forward to any further developments on this game. <3 <3 <3
That was a stunning puzzle platformer game with some excellent sound design. <3 Each squeak made me chuckle for a second, and the "Tetris"-esque transformations of the Maître D' were a optical delight as well. :D The polish of this game made a super juicy experience and if it would have been longer, then I would have played each level without a doubt! The protagonist is the accordian hero that every restaurant needs. :D It's no wonder that this game got the 1st place in the whole Ludum Dare 35. <3 Happily I wrote a little article about your game and also uploaded it a short gameplay video for it, and also it's included in our GOTY 2016 list. <3 Like always, thank you so much for your hard work. I really appreciate it how much fun and joy you share with the game jam world. :)
any fully fledged game in the works?
Going to be posting a video of this on my channel, linking back here, hope you don't mind!
Please fix downloading this game inside the Itch app since I can only download through this page using a browser, I would prefer download it using the Itch app but it fails downloading. Otherwise thanks for a great game lots of fun. Regards :)
Hrmm, as far as I can tell it should work. What platform are you on? Win/Mac/Linux?
Thanks for try and help out, I was reinstalling all my itch games (upgrading OS new install) in the player, funny thing when it came to your great game no matter what, it would not download any only if I opened your page in a browser. Somehow after a while I tryed switch my ISP since I have 2 lines and then smile it worked. Once again thanks finally I can enjoy your great game in the Itch application, I think one of my ISP's are having a real bad day :) Platform: Windows 8.1
well I cant play FRUICK U FRICKIN FRUEACKIN PEICE OH HORSE CRAP
I can't play it, why isn't it letting me?
Oh god, this game is amazingly funny. I laughed non stop for pretty much all of this video. Just the idea of a stretchy waiter, like this, actually serving you is creatively hilarious.
This is just a dang old good piece of design that’s satisfying without having an alienating quirkiness that these games so often endear. It’s like playing one of those PopCap games that were always so smug, yet enjoyable.
Kratzen gave the game three stars out of five, making it one of the good ones.
I had a ton of fun while playing this game! Also the sounds are hilarious!! Thanks for sharing your work with us xD
Here is my gameplay..
Let me just say, this game is adorable, hilarious and to be honest brilliant. I loved every single moment of this game. 1,000,000/10 will replay again. Max out your lotion and extend all the way to the right, then go left and right really fast. Huehuehue.
Hey Your game is pretty kickass,
I'm working on a video project called time capsules focusing on game indie devs. It's similar to sending a message to your self in 50 years;
Only five questions for my documentary:
1. What feature in your game can the player not experience anywhere else?
2. What's the biggest personal obstacle you had to overcome in creating your game so far? (it could be super technical or anything else that you want to talk about)
3. Who helped you decide to become a game dev?
4. What feature of the game do you absolutely love that no one would probably ever find?
5. What do you believe video games mean to humanity?
First couple of episodes
if you have some game footage or even better developmental footage of errors or other stuff you'd like to show people who have never programmed a day in their life.
also best ways to contact you, and all social media you use because I'll be displaying those through out the episode.
I think if people dig the game and dig your story they might reach out for questions or colabs you really never know what can come of it.
do you think you'd be interested in being my guest?
I'M SO LONG!
This game is AWESOME!!!
How do you save progress? (on any game, really)
Absolutely love this unique 2D platformer. The mechanics are awesome and the sounds and voices are too much! Keep up the good work!

i found a glitch where instead of the body expanding it duplicates the head it wont even let you contract XD file:///Users/bk/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202016-12-11%20at%208.18.54%20am.png and file:///Users/bk/Desktop/Screen%20Shot%202016-12-11%20at%208.19.06%20am.png

Like the game it is very fun
Pretty hilarious game! Loved the platformer + snake gameplay, and the style mixed with the sound effects made for some giggles and laughs!
Greatest waiter simulator/10
GLORIOUS i has an idea what if was level creator
What an interesting, unique game, looks very fun. I cannot wait to try it.
this is one of the best games I have ever played.
Did a lets play of this lovely game of yours <3 Hope you like it ^_^
and some cover art too :3
Nice game, the actors made me laugh! but I couldn't get the lotion on the table in the lotion level :\
Is the level you are talking about the one with a bomb on the table and then a lotion behind it? If so then you crouch and go underneath the table.
Fun game! It's clever beyond the initial laugh you get from the description. This is a really well thought out puzzler that you can probably finish in under an hour.
i downloaded but i cant find the game how do find it a play it
